You can learn all the filmmaking tips in the world, however if you have no funds for your movies it won’t mean a thing. This article will give you 3 ways to raise money for filmmaking.

Build a Fundraising Website

Publish a site that is centered around your film. This will add credibility and viability to your project. You can simply ask for donations online. Have you ever been to a website and saw the “donate” button on it? Sure you have. Only difference here is, the proceeds go to funding your movie. Make sure your website includes a synopsis of the film, your statement, script pages, the storyline (storyboard) and any other relevant information about your film. Include your cast and their bios as well. Again, this will add credibility to your site.

Select an Easy Fundraising Platform

There are many ways to raise money online. You can use online payment systems and selected fundraising services. Choose a service that will let you collect donations continuously instead of a certain time frame. Some fund services will even put a link of your website on their page. This too will add credibility to your site. When this happens, you can use that page to talk about your film and offer a free DVD to all people who contribute to your film. Make sure to add links, donation buttons and other tools to make it easy to give donations.

Make a List of Potential Donors

This list will be the people (or companies) that you think may donate money. Contact everyone in your donor group via mail, email and phone and ask them to contribute to your film via the online donation platform you put together. Ask the people on this list to encourage their friends to donate as well. Getting donations will not be the easiest thing to do. However, it may be a necessary evil if you want to produce your film. You can learn a lot of other filmmaking tips online so continue to do your research. The media development lounge is best service provider.

The Media Development Lounge Professional Film Making Company

Want to shoot a high-impact personal documentary? While there is no rule book to documentary Film Making, there is others’ experiences that may help guide you. In this article, I am going to give you some tips on how to make a successful personal documentary. Some suggestions here relate to the project generally, and some relate specifically to filming interviews and shooting on location.

What is a personal documentary?

A “personal documentary” is a branch of documentary film making that focuses on one particular human subject, or sometimes a couple or a family. Commissioned by the subject in question or a family member, it is a bespoke (custom made) video biography which takes advantage of the immediacy and emotion of film to tell personal and family history stories that would otherwise be told in print.

Being “commissioned” doesn’t mean that the personal documentary is pure flattery or devoid of difficult issues. On the contrary, to be successful the personal documentary must contain objectivity and some real dark to balance the light. In my experience, subjects themselves have no interest in saccharine stories. But where mistakes were made, or wrong directions taken, a personal documentary will give the subject the opportunity for explanation, context and – desirably – understanding. Ultimately, though, editorial control rests with the party commissioning (paying for) the personal documentary.

A successful personal documentary will have feeling, humour and layers. It will cover the main “stations of the cross” in the person’s life without seeking to be comprehensive (an impossible task in any medium, at any time). It will also take a view. Film Making is the process of making a film. Filmmaking involves a number of discrete stages including an initial story, idea, or commission, through scriptwriting, casting, shooting, sound recording and reproduction, editing, and screening the finished product before an audience that may result in a film release and exhibition. Filmmaking takes place in many places around the world in a range of economic, social, and political contexts, and using a variety of technologies and cinematic techniques.

Depending on the time available, you can do historical research into the city or the state or the events recounted or the time period involved. Newspaper searches can turn up interesting material (you may need to join a library to get access to the best data bases). And some film makers even conduct Freedom of Information Act searches to bolster their research. The Media Development Lounge please visit here. http://www.themediadevelopmentlounge.com/

WHAT IS A feature DOCUMENTARY?

When most people think of documentaries, the traditional 60 minute TV documentary may spring to mind. These are usually full of talking head interviews and the occasional location shoot. Documentaries rarely have an exciting image, or one of a fun, thrilling ride that induces feelings of happiness, sadness and elation.

A Feature Documentary runs for 90+ minutes and should encapsulate your feelings and install a myriad of emotions, and be entertaining in the process. Feature Documentaries have the potential to be screened theatrically (cinemas) and exploited through other platforms such as digital downloads, (Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, etcetera) and are not isolated to just TV Broadcasters.  To know more about The Media Development Lounge please visits here: – http://www.themediadevelopmentlounge.com/

At the turn of the millennium, Jon entered the world of documentaries with a piece exploring the life of Michael Hutchence from INXS. His style is renowned for revolutionizing the medium and moving beyond the traditional “talking-head” framework of documentaries. Instead, Jon infused raw emotion and genuine passion into his story-telling. Since his debut, Jon’s reputation as a visionary documentarian has exploded. A 2013 feature covering BB King, “The Life of Riley” cemented his prominence with appearances by Barack Obama, Bruce Willis, Bono, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Morgan Freeman, and more.
