Time is money. You’ve heard this. We all have. And if you’re not a huge film production company with a big budget, then getting your movie in the can sooner rather than later could mean the difference between success and failure.

Many film schools teach students to become efficient with time. But the expenses add up when you’re working with your own money, renting your equipment from local video production companies, and casting your film. Get behind schedule, and you risk draining your bank account.

I’m a big believer in making movies as quickly as possible. To do this, you’ll need to plan everything. And I mean everything. You’ll need a plan A, B, and C.

And to challenge you a bit more – you’ll want to ask yourself how to make a movie in 1 week without compromising safety or quality.

Possible? Yes.
