Familiar Locations

Plan your film around familiar locations. If your film is completely indoor, try to know the space you’ll be shooting thoroughly, then plan your scenes utilizing the space. If you don’t do that, you might miss some interesting corner of the space which will remain unutilized. If you are filming in the outdoor location, do it in a location where you are familiar with the challenges. So, if you shoot in a marketplace, it will be crowded and noisy and you’ll have to make advance planning how you’ll deal with that. This short film by Iranian Filmmaker Jafar Panahi concerns three characters and is shot completely outdoor. To make such a film with limited budget and time you need high amount of planning and scheduling for the shoot.

Resort to Literature

Original ideas for short film are obviously good. But, you as a writer or director have to judge whether the story is good enough or not. Don’t just make a film with sloppy storyline, just because it’s original. You can resort to the vast world of literature for inspiration. You can adapt the story as per your creativity or you can take some idea and turn it to make something else. There is nothing wrong in it. Legendary filmmakers like Satyajit Ray have adapted most of their films from literature.

High on Idea, Low on Budget-

Short films like short stories are something that is very precise and interesting to watch. So, when conceiving ideas about short films, you have to keep in mind that your short film idea should be precise. Conceive ideas that are symbolic, deals with one or two themes, less number of characters, contain less scenes and sequences. Since, the length of the film is short, too many sequences can add chaos to the film. If you follow the tips on conceiving ideas, you’ll see your budget is automatically cut. Less scenes/sequences and characters means the budget is cut without compromising the quality of the film. Watch this short by Christopher Nolan, which deals with one character, one scene and one location. The idea is symbolic which makes it interesting to watch.

The geriatrics first try

Intergenerational Communication An interesting phenomenon among the YouTube new auteurs is the user Geriatric1927 and his video posts. After a short personal introduction entitled Geriatric Grumbles, users come face to face with an elderly British gentleman using a simple webcam to declare his enthusiasm for the YouTube community, a quite odd appearance on a site dominated by a youthful audience. Geriatric1927 declares his intention to share his life experience with his younger audience. Responding to the fact that more than 4,000 YouTubers have sent him positive feedbackas of November 2008, the video has been registered with 2,789,508 views on YouTube Geriatric1927 started a series entitled Telling It All that by August 2008 had reached some 60 episodes.9 In this autobiographic monologue, the audience is informed about growing up in pre-World War II class-dominated England and about the person behind the pseudonym, whose name, one later learns, is Peter Oakley. At the age of 79 he posted his first video on YouTube. Apparently a widower, he was educated in the field of mechanical engineering and worked in the British health sector prior to being self-employed and later retiring. Oakley leads off every new episode with a short vignette of text and music mainly classic blues before addressing his audience with: Hello YouTubers! From this point the webcam remains focused on him as he continues his monologue, with an ample number of digressions, about growing up in another age. The response from his audience, which seems to have stabilized at around 20 to 30,000, comes in the form of text and videoblogs addressed to him, parodies most of them good-natured, with a few exceptions and responses sent to his new website www.askgeriatric.com. The average viewer seems to be of very young age, a fact perhaps mirroring Generation Ys need for a kind of grandfather figure.

Mark Apsalon on chroma key and his DVD

Apsalon and Mr. Safety both receive many laudatory comments for their tutorials and are addressed as authorities by a community of users who want to improve their skills in videomaking. Such hierarchies and the discourses maintaining them are characteristic for traditional amateur cultures, and YouTube is all but free from traditional cultural hierarchies obvious, for example, in the following comment by user EA060: Some of these things seem hilarious to me, being a professional cameraman and video editor. But those advices are good for the amateurs. An interesting way to make people understand some things. About white balance on VX cameras dont use the auto function because its not JVC to work properly. You better make the white balance manually, or use the presets (int/ext) because you will have to work more on an editing software. The same thing for DSR 150 and DSR 170 from Sony. Good luck!21 134 13 Usage
