There is no sense going into a lot of debt when you are just starting out in the film making business. We all know it takes money to make money but I would suggest that you make a little bit of money before you go broke trying to get started. In this blog post we will look at a few ways to save some money in the film making business.
One big way to save yourself some money is by using a camera you already have. There really isn’t a need to go out and purchase a Hollywood worthy camera when your own digital camera will work just fine for your film making needs. You really don’t even have to own a camera of your own because you can just borrow one of your friends or relatives cameras to get started.
Another good way to save yourself some money at the beginning of your film making career is to get actors involved in your film that do not require payment. You can do this by going to your local community theatre and recruiting a few people. These type of people love acting and don’t necessarily expect to be paid for it. As you get more involved with the film making process you can then start to hire professional actors and actresses.
Another great idea to save you some money on your low budget film is to shoot in areas that are ordinary and open to the public such as public beaches or parks.
