Transcript of film

What are the features of a good and well prepared film? A good film, is a film with good craftsmanship and emotional content for the audience to sympathize with. The delivery of emotional content is so subjective that it is not an indicator of a good film.

If you want to make a good film, you need to follow the film making process properly and complete what you have to do in each steps.
Like for example; In the Scriptwriting step, you need to write a good and interesting plot or storyline that engages the audience. A good film has a meaning to it. Like all the footage is edited.
A good film attracts the viewer, it could be about a blade of grass but as long as it captivates some sort of emotion from the viewer it has to be a somewhat decent film. A film that will entertains the audience and that has a introduction, a problem and a solution.
What is a good film? We really need to think about each of the film making process and what we do in each of them. Making a film can sometimes seem daunting. There are so many details, so much technology, so many questions, so many people doing so many different tasks.
You don't make a film by doing everything at once, you bring it to life by going through it a little at a time, step by step. It's a creative path that begins with an idea and results with something you can share. Of course the beauty of this creative path is that is highly transferable to projects and interests that people will have in their lives, and in the act of making a film, they discover they are people who can take their ideas and share them with the world. The different stages of filming The five phases of the film making process are:

1. Development: When you’re making a movie, the most important thing is the story. If the story is no good, it will ruin everything about the film even if you have amazing actors and cinematography.
The Development stage is about creating a story and
deciding how you want to tell it. The story is usually
created in a brain-storming session either with multiple
people or just you. It’s best to get some people together
that think similarly to you or that understand the project (if you already have an idea). DEVELOPMENT 2. Pre-production/Planning: Pre-production involves all the work necessary to plan the film. The screenwriter’s role, for example, involves writing and/or revising the script. Production design involves researching and creating sets (both interior and exterior sets) as well as costumes and makeup.
Storyboards are drawings of the numerous shots that make up a scene. Casting involves choosing the actors to play each role. This is the planning stage. The goal is to figure out how you will get the script to the screen. Every detail has to be decided, including crew, actors, costumes, props, equipment, locations, and whatever else you need.
3. Production: After all of that planning, the day has finally come. It’s time to bring it all together and film the movie. This is the Production stage, where all of the filming takes place. Production is the work completed “on the set.” It is the actual filming of the movie. The footage you get here is the only footage you’ll have (unless you re shoot), so do your best. All you have to do in this stage is know what you want and communicate it to everyone else. That’s all a director does. PRODUCTION
4. Post-production: The Post-production stage is where you edit the film, put in the credits, music, and special effects, and finish the movie. Find a program that lets you edit footage. Post-production is the work completed “in the studio.” Once filming ends, a movie must still be assembled, in much the same way as jigsaw puzzle pieces fit together to create a single image. First the picture is assembled, then sound is added. The film editor assembles the visual images into a logical sequence so that the story flows smoothly from one scene to another. And also add music to go with the scene. POST- PRODUCTION
5. Distribution: Distribution is where you market your film and advertise it. You can also put your movie on a DVD (or Blu-ray) if you want. You can use any way of advertising; printing posters, DVD, like Merchandise. Another fun thing you can do is offer special features to people, such as behind-the-scenes of how the movie was made. If you want to do this, you should plan ahead and film it while making the movie. You can put this extra stuff on a DVD.

If you follow all the steps and the stages of the Film making process properly, you also can make a good and well made film. DISTRIBUTION Here is a video that will give you more information about the film making process. VIDEO Craftsmanship: A person who is highly skilled in a
