How to make a short film
Nowadays, smartphones and pocket-sized production studios are the best places for an actor to get a start. In fact, casting directors revealed that the number of Instagram followers an actor has, the more likely they are to land a role in the production. As a result, aspiring actors can now form their own opportunities without the need of a talent agent, producer, or a major studio. But how do you do build an online presence?
In a recent actor’s masterclass with SAG-AFTRA Foundation, producers, screenwriters, and aspiring actors share how to write, produce and perform a short film. The video provides actors with a roadmap for writing, producing and performing in a short film that is eligible for submission to the Foundation’s biannual showcase, which is a great way to get noticed by major studios.
The video features panelists including Diana Amsterdam, Caytha Jentis and Susan Miller. Moderated by Lori Hammel.
