I am new here and found this place by accident but i am a martial artist who is looking to be filming a movie with allot of people from my website and a martial art club in the u.s in 2004.
It is my first attempt at anything at this so i am reading up as much as i can on how to do this, there are allot of people working on this project and we are hoping to get allot of experiance out of this. So any advice you guys have would be great.

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
I'm glad to hear that more and more people are making their own movies, and I'll be glad to help you out in any way I can! :)
I take it from you post that you have no experience in filmmaking. In that case, I recomend you to start with shorter projects, and don't think you're going to pull off a feature length movie the first one you make. Actually, making movies is harder than most people believe, so just begin with experimenting with camera-angles, choreography, acting, everything. And be sure to read as much as possible about filmmaking, and try to learn some of the basics like the 180 degrees rule, and the rule of thirds.
Anyway, I'm just rambling. I'm tired. going to be now.
Good luck with your films :)
Have a nice day//TCF

Thanks for the reply. I have no experiance in film making and it does seem alot of work but i am excited about this project and i am now passing alot of the filming work onto a friend who has done some movies in the past. So this will be a great chance for me to learn how it's all done.

Expect lots of arguements, and things to take 10 times longer when filming than you plan. Good luck on your project, and post the results here, we'd love to see how you get on.
