Anonymous asks: Hi a long time ago you had a how to post for making films do you still have it?

Oh, I am not too sure what post you’re talking about. I don’t recall having made anything like that, to be honest! Unfortunately, everything that I had on my blog before is gone, because I shut it down and re-opened it, but I can try to make one right here and now :—-)

Personally, I think film-making is 50/50 script and imagery. However I find that it IS a bit (lot) more important to have a good storyline than it is to have good equipment. It doesn’t matter what you film with, or how good of a director of photography you have/are, it’s mostly what you’re saying that truly matters (two 1|2 posts on my blog related to this). Still, eye-catching images sometimes can be of meaningful as well, or simply something the viewer appreciates, which is nice! Sometimes you can take a very plain and simple script and make it into a wonderful audiovisual piece by making it appealing to the eye. I see this a lot with some of my most favourite directors, so it’s not a bad thing at all, but I do appreciate a well-written dialogue more than a nice looking scene.

So basically, my how to make a film is:

  1. Write a good script, one that makes you proud
  2. Draw inspiration from places (watch this if you feel like it, it’s a very nice sum up video speaking about this)
  3. Gather a group of people / a crew
  4. Film! Enjoy yourself! (because now comes the boring bit)
  5. Edit and edit and edit forever and ever
  6. Publish it and send it my way!!!!!!!!

I am not a professional and I’m only just beginning to get into the filming thing, but this is my opinion and I think that’s what you asked for (or is it not? let me know if this was any help/what you wanted, please!) 

If you have any other questions on film-making I would love to answer them (I’m maybe not the best to do so, but it is something I love speaking of, so please go ahead and ask away)

I’m supposed to write 15 things that make me happy and I was tagged by Méline

  1. phoenix (the band)
  2. all that is in my music folder really
  3. when people who aren’t exactly the most confident see how beautiful they actually are after I show them a portrait I’ve just taken
  4. collecting things (beach stones, coins from all over the globe, letters, cameras, etc, etc.) 
  5. being reminded of my existance
  6. reading something VERY well written in Spanish (usually Cortazar)
  7. alice liddell // alice’s adventures in wonderland // lewis carroll
  8. JULIA MARGARET CAMERON’S PHOTOGRAPHS!
  9. this necklace I own which my great grandmother (who hated everyone in my family except for me) gifted me on my first birthday, which has my initials on it
  10. winter sunsets
  11. when people want to take pictures of me
  12. when I can make other people happy
  13. drawing and making loads of things
  14. writing scripts to films I’ll probably never make
  15. LIGHT! (I could go on about this forever)

Thank you for tagging me Méline, and I will tag only a few people but you can always just not do it, I think it’s lovely tho, but okay, I tag: Maya, Memi, Zoe, Juli & anyone who’s feeling like doing this :—-)

oOOoOooOOooOOoOooh I wish I could show you how Marianne is looking, I wish I could just finish it now but I need my new computer! I wish you could listen to the music because I know everytime I do, it makes me cry tears of joy. I have SO much to do, and editing this short film isn’t it, but I really want to get it out there soon because even though it won’t be so super fantastic, I am proud of this being my first project and having filmed everything two days before I moved out, etc etc etc

I still have so many left to do! Can you guess which stickers are for whom?
