If you want to get started making movies, my suggestion is to get started. So many people in Hollywood bounce around for years pretending to do work, when all they are really doing is pretending. Many of these people call themselves producers, yet they have no screen credits and have frankly failed to do anything…
Don’t do that. For around two-thousand dollars, you can buy a camera that produces cinematic results. And if you can’t afford that, then just use any camera you can. In the event you cannot yet afford your own equipment, then find someone who already has the gear and make friends.
You next step is to get an idea for a short, 1 to 3 minute movie. Something funny. Then plan the shoot. The story doesn’t have to be overly awesome or complex. Most of my first movies were centered around my drunk friends playing characters. These movies sucked, but they were good practice. Your initial movies will probably suck too. Don’t worry about it. Give yourself permission to suck.
Just remember, the more you practice, the better you get.
