How to make a feature film on no money

You actually make a short film in one week, crew and write and produce the film
Film Making Tip ............ Post Production is critical to the success of the film.
The hardest part of Film Making is Post Production. Getting it right is so important. Post Production usually takes four times as long as Shooting.
In Big Budget Movies , producers will have big post crews that take over a specific parts of posting a film.
But what the budget end of Film Making, Final Cut Pro 3 is the best low budget software for posting your film.
Francis Ford Coppola uses Final Cut Studio with his editor Walter Murch and you will see them on The Final Cut pro site online posting their film.
Final Cut Studio has many different components
Final Cut Pro 7 You edit the film.
Soundtrack Pro You sound post your film with this program
Colour You grade and colour correct your film
DVDPro ..... Create and burn your DVDs
One of the most important things to remember is that when you have finished shooting and had the wrap party, you are only half way in the production process.
I have just spent the last two weeks working with Colour on The Makeover. ( one of my 97 minute feature films) It is a wonderful tool and it can make your film look beautiful. If you have worked with any Photoshop, you have the idea of what Colour can do. Is it way better than Final Cut Pro Colour grading or many other el cheapo Grading software. It can get your full length film fit for the Distributors to see.
Today is the day that I complete post production on The Makeover and send it out to the world.
Big Film Festival Deadlines that are looming The all important Sundance Film Festival, Slamdance Film Festival and Palm Springs are all in the next week or two and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will enter all of them. The American Film Market also happens in November.
This is one of the biggest film Markets in the world.
Have a great one
