I'm not sure if this is the right secton for this post, but I didn't see an indie film category in the arts column. Anyway, I want to try my hand at filmmaking but I'm not sure were to begin. My equipment is pretty basic, I have a mini dv digital camera and a fast computer for editing. I'm not tyring to make money off of the project or anything like that, I just want to make somthing for the local film festivals. I was thinking of starting out with a simple documentary or possibly a monologue. I recently watched the Spike Lee film A Hewey P. Newton Story to get some ideas about the monologue format, I'm not sure if one camera would be enough for that type of film, it seems like you have to keep changing the camera angle to break up the monotony of the film. I really don't want to try a fiction screenplay because actors are hard to come by in my local area. So what do you think I should do? I'm open to any suggestions.
