I Want to Make a Short Film - Canal Plus Film Making Flow Charts (The Flow Chart campaign was developed at BETC Paris by Stéphane Xiberras, Olivier Apers, Gregory Ferembach, David Troquier, and Les Graphiquants.)
DIY Filmmakers Toolkit by Wistia. you can make films for less $$$. it requires creativity. I would ask kids if they could come up with other creative ways to save money- to turn garbage into sets and props. With each prop we ask: Do we have to Buy it? or can we make it, can we borrow it? can we fake it?
