    Making a feature just for YouTube?

    Happy New Year everybody. I had been planning to develop a short film but now I'm torn between doing a short or a feature, because I'm really interested in this script I'm writing which is actually a feature. I'm just curious about the practicality of making a 90-something-minute feature film...

    wanting to make a short with $1,000

    Well, to be fare, I have seen shorts make it to the VOD market but in listening to what you and everyone else is say, the people who make those short films are experienced in filmmaking already. In case you're wondering, I did find that link as I was looking for where I could watch Naomi's...

    wanting to make a short with $1,000

    I don't want to use a camera phone to shoot the movie. I want to use an actual movie camera but I won't spend any money on equipment. I will hire a crew who already have equipment on hand. As far as writing it goes, the horror-thriller creepy abandoned hospital plotline I had originally planned...

    wanting to make a short with $1,000

    Hello guys, I have an idea for a short that i want to make. It's a horror-thriller film that takes place in a creepy old medical clinic (or i can shoot in a hospital and then shoot an exterior shot of a clinic for an establishing shot). Here's what I feel nervous about: I want to try not to...

    film vs digital: is one cheeper than the other?

    And you know what? I actually don't blame him, and here is why: First, I'm not so certain i support Taratino's decision to retire from the filmmaking industry just because (almost) no one is using film anymore because that just sounds rather silly. I'm glad to know that I'm not alone in my...

    film vs digital: is one cheeper than the other?

    I'm asking because I've heard of films still using film cameras to shoot their movies with digital filmmaking on the rise. Why? I'm just wondering if some filmmakers are resorting to using film cameras in an attempt to cut down on production costs.

    Seeking tips on investor funding

    Dear filmmakers, I've had a few concerns about using investors to get funding for getting films made. I'm almost finished my script so I kind of wanted to talk about it now and get some expertise from experienced filmmakers. The main reason why I didn't want to go the investor route was...

    Wanting a particular actor for a film

    Gotcha, though i had no plans of telling things that personal... cuz then they'd think I'm stalking him, lol. Well yeah but given that this particular person is no stranger to Hollywood he still not really an A-lister. Yes. My reason for a budget jump was because of the kind of equipment i...

    Wanting a particular actor for a film

    Hey, guys. Sorry if this is the wrong category. Didn't know where to plop this, lol. So anyway there is this particular actor (whose name I won't disclose here) I would love to have in my feature-length film for a particular role. He's not a huge Hollywood name but he does have almost 30 acting...

    Question regarding poster and cover designs

    I had a question regarding distribution in terms of designing the cover for the DVDs and Blu-Rays for my film. When my film is completed, I do want the poster and DVD and Blu-Ray cover to look a certain way. I understand that films - for the most part - have more than one poster and DVD/Blu-Ray...

    Product question for indie feature length film.

    I would hire an attorney for copyright clearance. Go to a script clearance service like Indieclear and have them look at your script and ok it before you take it to the cameras. I think making a small reference to other films sand tv shows is alright but still get a professional to ok it first...

    Do you consider $2 million little or a lot?

    I went and looked it up. Was there something particularly you wanted me to see? The film is in post-production so not much information was available at the time I looked it up. Well like you just said, they think it's a bad plan but that may not mean it is. It'll just be a matter of finding a...

    Do you consider $2 million little or a lot?

    Investors? Help from other producers, perhaps? No... you know what? I was actually planning to buy them. Seriously, I was definitely going to rent! :lol: It is. I will consider that. Well then again, I'm don't really plan to use any A-list actors so I think I should be all right in that...

    Do you consider $2 million little or a lot?

    Yeah. I've recently heard that Arri Alexa has the best movie picture image. But I've always wanted to use Panavision cameras and lenses because they look and feel like... movie cameras to me and most of the movies I enjoyed were filmed with those same line of cameras. But if they are cheaper and...

    Do you consider $2 million little or a lot?

    Hi, neighbor! I actually didn't want to bother anybody about my film until my script was finished but let me get into details with what I meant and want: What I meant by not looking indie, I'm not using any crazy, out-of-the-ordinary props, costumes, sets, etc. It's just a simple film. It is a...

    How would you write a basketball game in a script?

    Nah, even I would write it a little more professional than that! :lol: Thanks. I even considered looking at examples from other screenplays to help me out. That helps. Appreciate the advice. Also, have any of you guys seen Coach Carter? Having the screenplay from that film would've helped...
