How to Make a Movie

Come up with a story idea first. You should have at least a basic idea of your premise. Next, turn your idea into a screenplay. Your screenplay should come in at about 90 to 110 pages. After you’ve tweaked and polished your screenplay, you’ll want to transcribe your screenplay into storyboard form. Now you’ll need to assemble a crew to help shoot your film including, a director, cinematographer, casting director, camera operator, sound man, costume designer, hair and makeup artist, script supervisor, film editor and sound editor. Now you cast your film and gather your equipment. After which you’ll be testing your equipment and once all equipment is working, shoot your movie based on your storyboards. After shooting you’ll edit your movie, then add sound effects and music. Create your title and credits sequences and then export the film to a digital format and submit to film festivals or seek distribution.
