We’ve all been there – you’re in your early twenties and want to start making films without a formal education. After a certain point, you realize that it’s not feasible to make full-length, indie and feature films with the skills you had in college, and so you try and make your own DIY things, such as short documentaries, short audio dramas, short feature and feature length short films; to name a few. The best part is that there are plenty of people out there who can help you out. The most obvious options are YouTube based tutorials/resources, but there are also countless community-based communities where folks share tips and tricks on making these kinds of films.
I’m currently in my college years, can I still make my own films?
Yes, for the most part of college you can make your own films with limited training and experience. Some courses, like Film/Video Production, are much more advanced than others and you might have to make your own materials and work with an experienced editor/director with some experience. But once you’ve had a solid foundation, you can make your own movies and be independent from any production company behind the camera. I definitely recommend giving Film/Video Production Courses a try. They cover a broad range of subjects.
Can I do it for free?
Well, you can. But, you’ll never be paid for the time you spend on online tutorials or community site sharing tools. Also, there are a couple of key things you’ll need, which are your own computer, a webcam, and some funding. I personally have a laptop with a camera and a computer screen where I work for free to make my own tutorials. This is an entirely free way to learn and build your skills at the same time. But remember that some people may have to spend money on equipment to get started or pay for credits when they do.
