Need advice for my first real Indie Short
So i have just finished a script for my first official short, its a horror film around 20 pages long.. i have a location already confirmed and i am in contact about renting a camera for the week of shooting. for a little background i have worked on several indie sets but had never done anything myself with more than 2 people working on it. so thats why i consider this my first real short. i want it to be as legitimate as possible so i am just looking for advice and or any tips for the steps that i can take to make sure the project gets completed to the best of my ability. i am planning to shoot in late august and i know i will not have much money to fund it, i have a bunch of equipment already but i know i will be needing more and i will want to try and pay the people i work with at least something, even if it is small. so any help anyone on here can give me will be greatly appreciated. just starting out and from what i have learned it is a grind, but a grind is what I'm prepared for. Thank you to everyone in advance!
