Making a film - Learn about film How do you make a movie that people will want to watch? The secret is to plan it, keep it short, and keep it simple. Don’t be impatient: follow your plan and take the time to get things right. Follow these ‘rules’ to help make your first film a success. 1 Build your skills. Once you’ve got your equipment, learn how to use it and find out what it can do. 2 Watch other people’s films. Quentin Tarantino famously said “People ask me if I went to film school. 3 Get organised. Follow an organised filmmaking process. 4 Keep it short and simple. Have you got a strong idea? Keep it short: most beginners’ films could be improved by halving their length. 5 Shoot separate shots. Learn about what the different shot sizes are for. 6 Get the sound right. Sound is vital. 7 Edit it right. Don’t think of editing as a chore: it’s not about just getting rid of the bad stuff, it’s where your film will really come together. © Tom Barrance Got a question?
