The Making of a Movie

What goes into making a film for foreign fields? Pretty much the same type of activities that are necessary for a domestic film.

It all starts with an idea and a vision, then lots of phone calls to put things in motion.

While a movie may not seem very complex, there is much behind-the-scenes activity just to get it started. For example, there must be an idea, then writers and translators to solidify it, a music composer for the film score and artwork for the DVD covers and advertising pieces. A location must be chosen, along with selection of actors, costume-makers, film and lighting crews and sets and prop makers.

Equipment must be located and rented at the filming location, along with storage space for the equipment, housing, food and transportation for the cast and crew, and editing and viewing facilities.

And this is before anything begins! More later.
