Ideas for Making Short Films
Ideas for making short films may come from everyday life, personal experiences or fantasies you have had.
To get started just write down your creative ideas. This could be just a paragraph to a full script.
Some points to consider for short films are:
Having a concrete plot:
Put yourself in the audiences shoes and ask yourself, do you connect with the plot?
If the answer is no, chances are that your audience will not either.
For the practical side you should consider budget constraints. Having a written budget in the form of an Excel spreadsheet or professional software, you’ll be able to allocate your funds efficiently.
Without planning the financial aspect, your film could be over-budgeted and may not get finished.
