Answer by El Tecolote
I had an idea for a short film just the other day. I was thinking about finding an old house, like, more than 100 years old, and tell the story of the five generations of one family that lived and died in the house.
No more than 15 minutes, and don’t just shoot from the hip with a camcorder. Get yourself some lights, even if they’re those crappy Lowells, and some gels, and a book called “Set Lighting.” Can’t remember the author, silver cover – found at Barnes & Noble.
Have your beginning, middle and end clear-cut. (Your act 1, act 2, act 3.) Too many artsy kids think they can tell a short in some kind of neo-modern, cutting edge way and all it does is confuse the audience. If you want to show your filmmaking stuff, then do it right.
