    Filmmaking Advice From a Non-Professional

    Filmmaking Advice From a Non-Professional

    I'm a young filmmaker/photographer and I aim to, one day, make a living from doing what I love, but I'm not quite there yet. I started making "films" about four years ago—of a very low production value and just for fun. It gripped me and fueled a passion I never knew I had.

    There's a million reasons why people want to start doing comedy, and it's hard to figure out where to begin.

    Film Writing

    We all love watching movies. We pay to go see them in theaters, buy the DVDs and Blu-rays of them, they are a good excuse to sit back, eat popcorn, and relax.

You need to come up with a full plot, list of characters, different scenes, basically you have to create a full movie. I have written quite a few, and I will try to give those of you that are interested in this topic tips on how to make script writing a bit easier.

    Top 10 Tips to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

    Even though we've seen the scenario played out in the movies and on TV, what would you, or rather, should you do in an honest-to-goodness zombie apocalypse situation?
