Can High Schoolers Make a Feature Film?
Hey guys! I'm a sophomore in high school with a huge passion for filmmaking. I've been making short films for years and have collaborated on projects with friends, but all in good fun. I want to go bigger and show everyone that I'm determined and passionate. I want to make my first feature film. I've got the crew, but, of course, no budget, though I'm eager to use my limitations to my advantage. 1) Is this worth trying? and 2) What are some common pitfalls that I should watch out for? Above all, I want this to be a great learning experience. I know that I will make mistakes and I need that to grow as a filmmaker. But I've never done something on this scale before. Any advice?
