Here are the parameters on which I judged my each script and finally decided about the first short film idea I was going to make a short film on.
A short film maker is confused about the making a short film when he doesn’t have a short film script idea or when he has a lot of short film ideas. My case was the latter one. I didn’t have any camera and I wasn’t ready to rent one. I wanted to buy one for myself and learn it first. So, until the time I wasn’t having any camera I kept writing short film scripts. And, now when I have the camera, I was confused which short film idea to choose and which one to leave as all looked equally good to me with a lot of potentials. Here are the parameters on which I judged my each script and finally decided about the first short film idea I was going to make a short film on. Watch the movie from the link below and then read the article to know how I decided on that script.
4. Property or Props
When I finally saw my short film scripts based on the budget I was on, locations I have, cast and properties I needed, I chose my musical short film because all the other scripts needed a bit more budget, better locations, multiple casts and specific prop pieces which we weren’t able to get as it was my first short film. Once we are in this game, we are going to increase our budget, move to better locations, and have multiple characters.
I hope these parameters will help you choosing the first short film script idea for your short film as these parameters helped me.
