So now you want to make a film! Probably you are reading this and thinking I also want to make films all my life! Yes this is possible but will require incredible amount of dedication, knowledge, patience and discipline.

As the foundation of any building should be strong, any film is based on a strong Screenplay/story.

Now to write your script / story you need an idea!

“The air is full of ideas. They are knocking you in the head all the time. You only have to know what you want, then forget it, and go about your business. Suddenly, the idea will come through. It was there all the time.”

— Henry Ford

To get started I would say every idea which exites you and tickles your imagination , you should write it down! Take a notebook and jot down ideas via bullet points. Then show that to your friends family mentors to take suggestion.

Watch the latest shows and check out the upcoming films and try and guess what kind of scripts/concepts work in the industry now, where is the money flowing!

Note - more tips on plot creation will come in later posts so follow us right now to keep updated!

Then you have to decide what would be the duration of your film, will it be a short film ( 5-45 mins ) or feature film ( 60 -180 mins ).

Will it be a fictional narrative film or a documentary about social issues?
