Digital Filmmaking For Kids For Dummies

Getting Started with Digital Filmmaking

Welcome to Digital Filmmaking for Kids For Dummies. What is digital filmmaking and how is it different from ordinary filmmaking? Good question! Many years ago, perhaps before you were born, films were captured using cameras that recorded a series of still images to a reel of film or tape that ran through the camera. These reels were then cut together by hand, which was a very long and complicated process. Back then, fewer people were able to make high-quality films due to the cost of the equipment and production.

Digital filmmaking is simpler and less expensive than traditional filmmaking because digital cameras are able to capture images digitally through electronic chips, which send the images to media cards or hard drives and not to reels of film, which are expensive to buy and can't be reused. The importing and editing process is also simpler because each section or clip of recorded video is imported and edited as separate files, making the editing process quicker and more efficient.

Some filmmakers still prefer traditional filmmaking to digital filmmaking because they prefer the look of the images captured with old, traditional film cameras. That look used to be hard to replicate with digital cameras, but things are changing. Some of the latest digital cinema cameras produce unbelievably beautiful footage.

The introduction of digital cameras has opened up opportunities for future filmmakers like you to get your films made and get them seen. It's never been easier or cheaper to turn ideas and stories into films. Just look at the number of short films on YouTube and Vimeo - we live in a creative world!

With the skills and tips you learn in this book, you will be turning your ideas and stories into films to share with your family and friends.
The Filmmaking Process

The filmmaking process can be divided up into five main stages:

If you imagine the filmmaking process as a journey, these five main stages are stops on the way. You can't get to your final destination unless you stop at each of these places along the way. Each of these stages are discussed in the next few sections.

This is one of the most important areas of the filmmaking process, and it can be one of the hardest. too. It's usually the longest part of filmmaking, because it's important to get the concept and the story right before moving into the production phase. Development can be rushed, however, and is sometimes skipped altogether, although this leaves the story undeveloped, which can cause problems for the filmmaker later in the pre-production stage. The development stage involves creating ideas and building the story so that it's ready to take into pre-production.

In the development stage, the filmmaker comes up with themes and ideas in order to create a story with a good beginning, middle, and end. This story is then used to create a script for the actors to work from and a storyboard for the director and crew to work from.

This stage uses the idea, story, script, and storyboard created in the development stage to prepare for the production stage. In pre-production, everything is planned for as much as possible. If this stage is rushed or skipped, something may go wrong during the production stage, and it could take longer to film.

In the pre-production stage, actors are cast for the characters in the film, locations are found and sets are built for each scene, each filming day is planned and scheduled, and rehearsals for the actors are organized. The time and attention spent at this stage saves time in the production and post-production stages.

The production stage is wher
