Lights, Camera, Action: 5 Part Series

So, you want to know how to make a movie? Well, you’ve passed the first step by looking up this blog.

I have composed five of my articles to create a mini-series which will help aspiring filmmakers learn more about the craft, and how they can use professional techniques to improve their own films.  The main components of how to make a film include: Cinematic Research, Storytelling, The Voice, The Music, and The Camera.

There are dozens of proficient examples in these posts. There are hundreds more not mentioned (or we’ll be here all day). This is just a building block to get you on the right track: what to do, and what not to do.

So, I hope you enjoy this series and find it beneficial.

Let’s make a movie.

Part 2 — Storytelling: Twisting the Plot
