: Thanks for the tip.
: Any advice on how to get started (web resources etc)? I've found lots of adverts for film schools but I don't have the kings ransom it would cost to attend. If I started tomorrow I'd be doing a lot of staggering around in the dark.
As well as some great commentaries of films that explain the process (Donnie Darko is one). Basically, script it, run an equipment check (camera, mics, lighting), scope and nail down your locations, get people to help (boom operator, DP, etc.), advertise for auditions, find your actors, and film.
This is the very simplified version, but definetely make sure your script and equipment are up to task before starting anything else. There are some sites and books that offer advice but nothing comes to mind now.
