I wanted to know whether re-recording dialogues for the whole movie is a good idea? Even if its not, will it work? Can I shoot a decent movie without having any on-location sound recording equipment, not even a boom mic..?
Because I cannot afford a boom mic. And even if I do, I don't have crew (person) to hold it while I shoot.
Also please suggest free softwares for sound editing, movie editing/making, and if possible, music creating.
And please suggest is there any other equipment that I need to have, that is absolutely a MUST, and I have no other option but to buy it (and if you know of some place/website in India where I can get it cheap, because every equipment I have looked up, I can't afford them).
I'm 21 years. I'm just starting out. This is gonna be my first film. No experience. I have only shot ONE short video in my lifetime. I know that most people will say I'm just wasting my time or I have to 'learn' or 'wait', but I really, really want to get out there and do it once. Make a movie, learn from the experience. And keep on learning and make myself good enough.
For this film that I'm making, I'm the director, screenwriter, editor, and basically everything else (except actor). I've managed to put together 7 of my friends to act in it (I've written the script such that I won't need more than 10 people)... and the story is comedy/friendship.
I'm shooting it with my Lumia 1020. And the only thing I can afford right now is buying a tripod.
I know its gonna be very tough to pull off a good one, but I'm going to give my best shot and see where I get, so that I can hopefully go further. I won't never will give up because I love writing+filmmaking.
I look forth to all your opinions and tips which for me will be very, VERY valuable.
