Where to film my short film?
Hello, my name is William. I am 13 years old and is starting to write a short film. I want to film it at about 16-17 years old with more experience. I have written about 30 pages so far and the film would be about 40 minutes. I live in Taiwan (in Asia) and I hoped to a good film school in the future. I've heard that having made films or have experience increases the chance of getting in the school, and besides that, I have wanted to make thriller for a long time (not a crappy kind of YouTube video, but something cinematic and amazing).
So the question is: where could I film? I am hoping to get to the US during vacation to shoot it, and I thought Burbank would be a good location. I am worried that the permits would be expensive since many Hollywood productions have been there. Where would be a good place to film? I would require a city-like place, sort of like Los Angeles or New York. I am a low-budget filmmaker so my options are limited. Where do you guys suggest?
