If you are interested in amateur film making but you have no idea where to start, you have come to the right place. Whether you are into film making as a hobby or you are looking to create a career for yourself you can always benefit from others tips and ideas.
To get started in your film making endeavor you should begin by deciding what you want your film to be about. I would suggest you choose a topic that you are interested in so that you are more able to make the film interesting to others. If you are not very interesting in your topic, it is likely no one else will be either.
It is important to not go into debt any more than you have to when starting your film making career or hobby. If you already have a good camera, use it instead of making a big purchase at the beginning.
You may need to purchase some new software for your computer to make things come together nicely. A good computer editing software can help you cut a lot of time off of your film making process.
The most important thing to remember is that you have fun while you are filming. Once you start not having a good time then your work will suffer. Make your film fun and interesting and others will enjoy what you have created. If you need a change of scenery then by all means shoot your film in more than one location to keep it interesting.
