So you wanna make a movie eh?
How are you going to get funding?
What cash is out there simply waiting for you to get your eager mitts on so you can start developing that script, shooting it or editing it?
What if you have done all this already but just need that crucial distribution deal to get your film out there?
Your task is to find out...
So, do some research....use links to the right eg: uk film council, BBC films, channel 4's guide to making movies is a good place to start. Shane Meadows even has a few tips for you...
Be detailed, what different funds do the UK film council offer. How do you apply? Check out some of the forms....are they easy, what pre-requisites or limitations are there?
What about short films - is this easier to get funding for?
