Pre, Post, Production Phases


- Before you start filming you're going to need to set up your equipment and have a plan. With your plan try and have a general idea of what your film is going to be about. Once you've got that down try and picture some scenarios for your film. Create a script or draw out a plan of what's going to happen in your movie. Now that you have your plan you can start working on your equipment. It is important to think of your plan first before your equipment because when doing your plan you realize for a certain scene you might need a different type of camera or a certain prop etc. Go back to your plan. Look at your scenarios and think of equipment you might need for each scene. An important thing to remember is when creating your list for equipment is to be absolutely sure that you have or can get the equipment. If you are unsure don't be dependent on that equipment or you might not be able to film that certain part at all.


- Now that you are in the filming stage its time to get your equipment, props and go film. When you want to film consider you're scenario and try to match the location you're in to the one in the scene. When filming it is good to use basic equipment like tripods, lightings and microphones.

- Now that you've got all you're footage you should start editing your clips. When editing use a computer software to edit your footage. If on a macbook you could use Imovie that comes with the computer or if you want to get advanced you could use Final Cut Pro.
