    Making Movies?

    Discussion started by Harpo Marx - May 3, 2002

    Me and a friend are going to try to make some kind of action oriented movie. What do I need to make it look 'good'? We have access to good cameras and some some idea as to how to do it, but is there anything basic that I need to know before we invest anything into it?

    We're (I think) going to shoot on VHS and digitally edit. So far we have 0 budget, and just want to get an idea on how much it would cost to make a movie that wont suck. I don't think its going to be that long (under an hour)
    For effects and whatnot we're going to use two cameras, one home video, and another (the good one) which we're going to rent.
    Right now we're just planning the whole story out and trying to find people to be in it. No script yet.
    Are there any basic special effects that you people know about?

    yeah, about the permits. where could i get one/how expensive are they? We're going to try to be real quick with all of this because we're going to work on a really tight budget and want to be in and out wherever we go. it isnt going to be real public either.

    Try the police dept. I think someone mentioned using fake guns somewhere and the cops came and told them they should gotta permit for a few bucks then ended up having to pay some serious cash for the ticket. Be careful since it's an action flick.

    How much would a minidv or whatever cost online? like a really cheap one. just to get the video to be decent quality, better than vhs.

    and what kind of equipment do you need to get the sound to be halfway decent?

    Most "low budget" films you see that have actually made it to a good number of screens, at the lowest, probably cost upwards of half a million dollars or more. Anything made for less that you can actually find is a rare phenomenon.

    El Mariachi, $7,500 budget, damn easy to find. But then again our friend Robert has made it mainstream...so nevermind...

    get a permit, I got fined, it sucks, around here if you flase a school ID and lie you get yourself a free permit, other than that, they are cheap, the more public though the more it will cost.
