In fiction or film, the actors and actresses are not real and only play particular roles. Film allows for a high level of manipulation: scenes can be recorded and edited in such a way that multiple interpretations are possible to mislead viewers. A movie is not recorded in one entire take and shots are not necessarily recorded in chronological order. There is much work to be done, solely for the editing part alone.
- Prepare your script
- Research and find the right accessories and locations
- Practise with the actors
- Dedicate as much time to editing as to recording
- Set up a team, because you have to take many aspects into account during the recordings which you alone won't be able to handle or solve
