How To Make Your Own Low Budget Film Part Two: Production

Welcome to filmmaker Sam Toller’s masterclass series in how to make your own low budget film. Part two: the production.

Over the next four weeks, we’ll have a new instalment for you. From script to pre-production to the shoot to post-production to promotion, Sam is doing it all. He just made his first feature film, ‘Alan’, while doing a degree. And he has made mistakes, made choices, made a film for god’s sake!

Episode two is about the production, the pre-production, the managing of actors and cameras and equipment through to getting sets and getting people to sets and getting quiet on set so you can film away.
