I am currently working on a low budget horror film called S'happens.
I liked the advise offered. While it is probably not true, I think the audience will be more forgiving of a webisode, so surprising them by making it better then expected will be good. Definitely preplan all you can and there are plenty of places online to find bits and pieces you worry about doing right! remember to post a link to it when done. It sounds like a fun project, enjoy!
I found it very interesting, thanks for explaining it. I liked the idea of extending his stare to make the effect more creepy, I will keep that in mind if I need to up the creep factor in my shot!
sounds like a great project, but I live in Alaska...
I disagree with your first sentence, mainly because it is one of the first things I read when looking up becoming an indie filmmaker. Marketing it, or the building of a following was stressed in many of the articles I read. But I think the idea of a web site for the film is important! Thanks for posting a how-to.
I would say it is not important to specialize, unless you are gifted in an area. As an Indie filmmaker I think you would need to do it all, and anyone hiring you would expect you to be able to do it all. For editing, if you are good at it, I bet you will get discovered soon since I imagine post production is always the longest taking. Good luck.
I think going to those fan sites of the ones like yours (Danger 5 or Kung Fury) and getting known will help a lot since word of mouth is probably the best and least annoying way to get known. I think this is a question we all are asking ourselves! Good luck with y our project.
