Hi everyone, welcome to Criativa Podcast.
A podcast about Film Industries.
Here, I will provide information about the world of filmaking
With your host, “Andika Adinul Yahya!”
If you’re an aspiring director that wants to start a lucrative filming career, you should start by creating your first short film. With the proper pre-production, equipment, and know-how, creating an engaging movie is just a matter of having good ideas and utilizing common filming techniques.
Part 1 Creating the Script and Storyboard
- Think of an idea for a short film. Think of a short story that you want to tell in under 10 minutes. Focus on one core idea so that the short story isn’t overly complicated. Consider what kind of tone you want for the film and whether it will be a horror, drama, or experimental movie.
- Write a short script. If you are an aspiring screenwriter, you can write your own script. Short films should have a beginning, middle, and end. A ten-minute film will only be about 7-8 pages long.
- Draw a storyboard. A storyboard is a series of pictures that outline what will happen in each scene. These pictures don’t need to be detailed or artistic, but clear enough so that you get a good idea of what each scene will look like and what will happen in it.
Part 2 Completing Pre-Production
- Scout for locations. Find locations to match the script. Ask small businesses and shops if you can use their locations for a short film. If the film takes place indoors, you may be able to use your own apartment or house. If the shoot is happening outdoors, find a safe and legal place to film.
- Get actors for the movie. If you have a budget to hire professional actors, you can put out a casting call for the script and then hold auditions for the movie. If you’re just trying to create your own personal short film, asking family and friends to act in the film is an easy and affordable way to get a cast for your movie.
- Recruit a crew. A crew will help you on the various aspects of shooting a short film like cinematography, production, lighting, editing, and sound. Depending on your budget, you may be able to hire professionals or you may have fill some of the roles yourself.
- Purchase or rent filming equipment. To shoot a short film, you’ll need a camera, lights, and something to record audio. Select filming equipment that meets your needs and your budget.
Part 3 Shooting the Film
- Rehearse the scene. Once the actors get onto the set, have them go through a basic reading of the script. Then, have the actors act out the scene. As they go through the scene, tell the actors what you want them to do, how to interact with the environment, and let them know of any modifications that you want to see in their acting.
- Dress the actors in their costumes. If the role requires a certain type of clothing or makeup, you’ll want to make sure that your actors are in character before you start shooting.
- Film the scenes in the movie. The storyboard that you created earlier will give you a shot list.
- Focus on visuals. Because your film is short, the narrative will sometimes matter less than the visuals that you are showing the audience.
- Thank your cast and crew once shooting has finished. Once you’ve filmed all of the scenes in your storyboard, you can send the film to post-production for editing. Thank everyone who worked on the film and let them know that you’ll contact them once the film is finished.
Part 4 Editing the Film
- Upload the film to movie editing software. Upload the video files into video editing software.
- Do a rough cut of the scenes. Start putting the shots in chronological order. Review them as you go along and check for continuity and flow. During the rough cut, you’ll want to make sure that the story makes sense.
- Add audio. Add the audio tracks of the actor’s dialogue and match it up with the video. You’ll also want to take this time to add any music or sound effects that you want in the movie.
- Analyze and tighten up the scenes. Once you have a decent cut of the film, review it with the producer and other editors. Take people’s feedback and criticism and then go back and re-edit the film. Concentrate on flow and pacing during the second edit.
- Review the film and create a final cut. After you’ve tightened up the movie, review the movie one last time with the producers, editors, and directors. Get final input on any details that need to be added or altered or issues that may have occurred during editing.
