About the authors
A director, who operates his own camera and cut his teeth making no budget music videos on his Canon 7D DSLR. As a freelance cameraman he's shot short films, independent documentaries and ENG work.
In 2014, alongside Vlady Radev, he co-founded 4KShooters.net - a filmmaking blog dedicated to the latest trends, news, gear reviews and industry happenings.
The other half of 4KShooters.net, Vlady spent the last 15 years working as sound engineer in one of the biggest radio stations in the country. In the meantime, he also founded a small production company where he shot and cut a ton of low-budget music videos and short films.
An independent filmmaker in every sense of the word, Vlady shot and completed his debut feature film "The Sixth Day" in 2013 and self distributed theatrically across Bulgaria.
Frequently Asked Questions
This guide is not meant to be an exact Step-By-Step Guide as to what you need to do - rather - in this guide we have summarised (some places in greater detail) our own experience on shooting our debut feature films.
We have provided a full list of gear we used and techniques we used. How to make a movie - is not something that can be taught in our opinion in a "blanket step by step" approach. However, we firmly believe that our experience we shared in this guide is a good proof that you can get away with a lot less than you think and still make your film.
