So you are all set to direct your film. You have your actors ready and are putting the finishing touches to your film. Now all that is left is to set the camera rolling and start shooting. But before you say lights, camera, action, take some time off to read the following five handy film making tips:
1. Select the location
Think about the ideal location for your film. Does your story suit an urban or rural setting? Do you wish to shoot indoors, outdoors or use a combination of both? Also think about the time of the year when you will be shooting. Will it be during the winter, spring or summer? Asking yourself such questions in advance can help you choose the right location. Also take into account the price of the place you would be hiring and the consequences of any damage that you might cause during filming.
