How to Direct, Act, and Create a Good Movie (Kids and Teens)
Write a script.To help youget a good idea, think what things you like to do. If you love to play sports or you are on a baseball team, make a movie about that. Or perhaps you like dogs, so you could make a movie about a dog. Think about what type of stories you like and what message you want to give the audience. There are many types of stories: love stories, action, and superheroes, accidents, friendship, competition, comedy,... Do some research on the topic of your story too. If you are making a movie about the gold fever in California, go to a museum, search online...
Write the scriptincluding what characters are going to be in the scene and what they look like, where it is going to be filmed, what soundtrack or music you are going to include, the scene number... details are important in the script. When you hand them out if it doesn't have many details a person could imagine it way different from you. To avoid that problem you should make a storyboard (next step).
Draw a storyboard.A storyboard is a comic of the script. It shows what happens in every scene, but it's not very detailed. It needs to show what place they are at, the character's positions, what they are doing. If drawing is not your thing, don't worry. You can still make your movie look good without this.
Cast your actors.They can be friends or family, but make sure that they are going to take it seriously and that they are not quitting on you. It might ruin all your job. If an actor isn't comfortable or is embarrassed by his part, don't make him do it. Otherwise, the acting won't be as good, and there might be more possibilities that he quits on you.
Make a list of all the stuff you are needing and how much money you are planning to spend.Set a deadline for when you need to have costumes. That way, you can prevent that the filming day comes and you don't have the costumes.
Call the people you want in your movie and plan a day when they can all come.If you have a lot of people in your movie, it might be hard to choose a day when you can all meet. Make a schedule of how much time you are spending in a scene and what people you are needing for it. Only have the actors and crew members come that are in a scene that you are shooting that day.
Put friends or willing musicians behind the scene if you'd like; it can sound clearer, sharper, and crisper that way.Otherwise, you could record music that you created, upload it onto your computer, and then paste it into your movie, or just search for music/sound on the program you're using.
Put everything together.Use any program you like, such as Windows Movie Maker (it usually comes with the computer), Sony Vega, iMovie, or Media Impression.Note: It's always better if you use the program that comes with the camera. Sometimes you can't edit the videos with another program if you don't save them with the program that comes with the camera first. These type of programs aren't usually very good, unless it's an expensive camera. Plus, you can edit your movie with as many programs as you like until you get good results. If you filmed it with a green screen, there are some programs that can edit those type of videos. When buying one, get well-informed about what the program can do.
Add music on your video - this can be done with almost any program, Windows Movie Maker will do.Try to actually make your own music, if you want. Put a title and credits. Include all the people who worked in the movie. If you did most of the work it might be a good idea to put: A film by (_) Don't forget the date. If you can't addcredits and a title, you can paint the letters with the program Paint that all computers have, and save it as an image. So when putting it all together just include that.
Make a DVD of your movie and give it to everyone you want.Upload it to YouTube if you want everyone to see your work.
Evaluate your movie.Did it look good? Was it what you expected? Did you have fun? Has everyone had fun? What where the main problems when making the movie? What did you like the most about the film? and the worst? What would you do better next time? Why? Would you repeat the experience?
QuestionHow do I get costumes for a movie, and how long does it take to film the average movie?wikiHow ContributorCommunity Answer1.) Ask your parents for old clothes, use halloween costumes. 2.) It depends on the length of your film, usually a couple of weeks.Thanks!
QuestionWhat kind of tools do I need to film the movie?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerMake sure you have a tripod to hold the camera steady. Lights are also helpful for creating the desired effect.Thanks!
QuestionHow do manage a movie with fewer actors?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerWith costumes and makeup, each actor can play multiple roles.Thanks!
QuestionWhen making a movie, is it acceptable to use my given name as the character name?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou could, but make sure your parents are OK with it before posting it on the internet.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I make the CD?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf you're using a camera, you should find a lead in the box that the camera comes in. You can attach this to the camera, and the computer. Most computers have a cd slot, and the CD can be printed on.Thanks!
QuestionCan I pause the video, change costumes and then unpause it if I don't have many friends or I want to make a movie alone?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can, but it might be confusing for your audience. It is best to have at least one other person with you. If you are making the movie and playing all the actors alone, your character will not have anyone to talk to.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I hire actors?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerAsk your friends and family if they would like to audition, then choose who's best for the job. It's unlikely you'll be able to hire professional actors as a kid.Thanks!
QuestionWhich app should I use for this?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou should use an app called iMovie for editing your scenes. You can also use this app for adding sounds and music.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I edit the movie after I make it?Andriy KuzmenkoCommunity AnswerUse an editing software. Just note that some of them cost a lot. A good example is adobe after effects which costs a month. Don't choose a software that you have to pay every month, those are just for professional people who get hundreds of thousands of dollars for this. A good example for a free software is windows live movie maker.Thanks!
QuestionI want to film in the park, but it's always busy and I'm not good with talking to strangers about things like that. What do I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerGo on a Sunday, or film near the entrance of a hiking trail.Thanks!

- Make sure that you can actually do what you wrote on the script. It might be really cool to make a movie about a plane accident, and it might also look really good on the paper but... can you recreate a plane crash?
- Don't put a lot of characters if you don't have that many people. It can make it very unprofessional if you notice that the same actor plays multiple characters. If you do that, make sure to costume them well. You could even add a backstory, like twins.
- Don't waste time coloring the storyboard. The storyboard is just important to give all the other people who work in the movie an idea of how it's going to be done.
- When making the list of stuff you are needing, and how much you are planning to spend, call your friends so they can lend you things. If you don't have a witch dress, don't buy one just for using it one day!
- If you use the soundtrack well, you will get way better results.
- When an actor is doing something you want the audience to know, it must be clear. Get a good camera view.
- If you want the audience to get more in your characters feeling, show only the face. If you see a girl crying in front of you causes way more sensation than if you'd see her from further away.
- It's better if the actors know what they have to do instead of improvising. For a fighting scene, for example, you will notice that quickly.
- The fact that you are the director doesn't mean that you really have to be in charge. Don't be very bossy, and accept everyone's ideas, because "two heads think more than one".
- The camera is very important. What the camera sees is what the audience is going to see. Give clear instructions to everyone, but especially to the cameraman. It's very important for everyone to understand what they exactly have to do. That will avoid many mistakes.
- Take short breaks from time to time.
- Remember it might take more than a day, and that you might need to repeat the scenes one and another time. That always happens, don't get stressed and be patient with your actors. Take a break if that scene is more complicated, and try it again later. If you finally see it doesn't work, do different short takes from 2 angles. That way, if you mess up, you don't need to repeat the whole scene, but just one or two sentences.
- Imagine you are filming five scenes in a day and a person only says one sentence in a scene. He might get really bored, so making a schedule, it can be useful.
- You have your actor and everything is perfect to film... but wait... who is going to be the camera man? Remember that you need one more person to be the camera man! (or you could also put the camera on a tripod but that way the camera can't move.
- Make more than one angle for a scene. It might be harder, but it looks more professional. In the real movies, they have more than one camera to do this, but you can just cut. If you do this last thing make sure your actors don't move and be in the same positions. It might be weird if a second before a man was walking with a hat on and a second later the hat suddenly disappear. This is a good technique if you want to make a superpower about making things disappear.
- Take breaks, but don't start doing something else because if everyone likes it, it might be really hard to get back to work. You can have a snack and talk for ten minutes, for example.
- If you know someone who knows about filming, don't be afraid to ask him for ideas. It may help you a lot. You could learn from his mistakes.
- Try to be silent while filming. No barking dogs, no babies crying, it would be super weird that in a romantic scene you heard a car's horn.
- It might be a good idea to keep all the papers you worked with together in a folder, just in case you are making another movie, or you just want to see how you did something.
- If you are filming outside, be aware of your surroundings. Make sure there are no cars passing by or a bird flying right by the middle of your scene. Seemingly insignificant details can actually be distracting to your viewers.
- Always be patient with your actors. If a shot doesn't turn out great and you do it over and over, it can be stressful. Take a break and do it over again. Or, try from a different angle, it can help manage stress.
- Be helpful and encourage people to do their best with no pressure, or else they may quit.
- Make sure you plan it all out and everyone knows all the lines and what character they play.
Another tip is to have good lighting, make sure you can see the characters. Ask an adult before you use the camera unless it is your own camera.
- Talk to your actors about the role before casting them to play it. If they are not happy with it then they will not deliver their best performances. Do not be rude or compelling.
- When you write your script make sure the lines are realistic.
- If you upload your video to the web, make sure to have permission from all the actors. Also, a lot of people will like your work, but a couple may think it's not that good at all. There will always be someone who would do it a different way, or that didn't like something about your movie. People will post good and bad comments. That's something you need to know.
