How to make a short film:


                                        SIMPLE STEPS TO MAKE A SHORT FILM

Step 1: Brainstorming
This is a stage whereby you think about the purpose of your story. Getting an idea of what story you want people to see.

Step 2: Planning
Do you want to make a documentary? Or do you want to make a drama? Do you want to use animation?

Step 3: The Story
This is the stage you will need to form a script. You might want a tight script where actors speak word-for-word or you may wish to have the characters improvise, giving them a stimulus.

Step 4: Cast and crew
Getting your casts that will be suitable for your scripts. The characters in your story and your production crew.

Step 5: Framing
Pictured are the main shot sizes, camera angles and movements

Step 7: Scheduling
This means you will need to make a schedule of filming your scenes. Now you have your storyboard, you may find some of your scenes happen at different times in the story but in the same location at this stage you will to do a schedule for the shooting.
