The idea of a professional filmmaker coming up with a film script out of thin air is still an intimidating reality. However, the advent of digital filmmaking has made this task easier than ever before. We are now able to create pubfilm tag new added without the help or resources from an established network, studio, or production team.

Creating a pubfilm can seem overwhelming if you’ve never done it before.

1. Create a Script

It is important to have a script in mind before you start shooting. Pubfilms typically take around a year to create, so it’s best to start with a brief concept or storyline. Whether you have always wanted to tell a story or you’ve been wanting to create something, there is a way for you to tell your story. Simply start with an idea and go from there.

2. Create A Treatment

After your script is finalized, put together a treatment. This will serve as an outline of the film and should be long enough to keep everyone in the loop while also not being too lengthy (or too short). Keep it simple, but at the same time try not to leave out any important information or details that could be crucial later on down the road.

3. Set A Budget

Now that you have a script and a treatment, it’s time to set a budget for your film. You’ll need to figure out how much money your total film will cost as well as how much you can afford to pay for things like renting equipment, using crew members, transportation, etc. Creating a pubfilm is going to take some money. Even if you are working with a team of people that are willing to work for free, you will still have to get the material needed to make your film successful (camera, lights, audio recorder, etc.). How much you spend depends on how big your budget is and what kind of film you are trying to create.

4. Find Actors

Now that you have your script, you need actors to play the roles in it. You can find local actors by posting a notice to your neighborhood and ask for those that are either interested or can do free work (printing flyers, etc.). If you have a particular actor in mind for the main character or if you happen to know someone that’s interested in acting in a film for fun, then it may be easier than finding “talent” off of Craigslist or by posting ads on Facebook or Twitter. With the advent of casting websites such as Actors Access , accessing actors has never been easier.

5. Cast The Movie

Every actor auditioning for your film should have an idea of the kind of film you are trying to create. Be honest with everyone and make sure they know what they are walking into. Once you have your cast, it is time to start pre-recording the material. This could be anything ranging from finding a location, prelighting and preparing the set, acquiring and editing clips and audio, etc.

6. Execute Your Film

This is the fun part! Even though it seems like a lot of work, you’ll want to do everything as quickly and as efficiently as possible. That way your film will be ready for the big screen in no time at all! Once you are done recording and editing your film to its final form, you will want to get your film out there for the public to see. If you have an account on Vimeo or a similar website, then uploading your finished product should be relatively easy. If you have a blog or personal website, you could create a special landing page just for your movie.

7. Promote Your Film or Movie

Promoting a film in any form can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t have many resources. However, the internet can help when it comes to finding audiences and getting the word out. The last and most important part of creating a film is to get the word out to as many people as possible. If you have marketing experience, then this shouldn’t be too difficult for you. However, if this is your first time promoting something, it may take some time and effort to do so effectively. With the possibility of having big name directors and actors looking at your work, you don’t want to leave anything up to chance by not properly promoting your film online.

Note: There are many ways to promote your film, but the main focus of this article is promoting your film through traditional media.

By following these steps, you can have a fun experience from creating your own pubfilm and not have to worry about the process being too difficult for you.

I highly encourage everyone to try this out and create a film for or about anything that moves you. Even if it doesn’t get picked up by any major networks, it will still be something that you can put on your resume or portfolio as a great accomplishment that you had in the past while showing off how much dedication you have towards life in general.
