Question by Andrew: How to make a short film series?
I have written several stories and would like to put them in short films, how can I accomplish this and where do I begin? Some of the stories are original some of them are fan fiction…

Do you know anyone with equipment? If not, search online for filmmakers near you…there’s always someone interested in filmmaking.
It sounds as if your work is in prose format; if you want to shoot these and use real actors, it might be worth looking into screenwriting format yourself; otherwise, you should see if you can find a writer online or that you know who writes in the screenplay format who wouldn’t mind adapting your work for you.
Finally, be careful with the fan fiction if you plan to do anything with these films. Using someone else’s characters even for an original story, unless the characters are in the public domain, is illegal. If these films are simply meant for your friends and family, though, don’t worry about that.
