Making movies (or any kind of video) with little money is always difficult. However, there are 3 things thathave been constant in all the successful low budget film/video projects I have been involved with.1. Work with your network of friends.
All the projects that I have seen happen smoothly and with a great final result have been produced and post-produced among the creator's (be it producer or director) friends. Of course I'm talking about professional friends (I worked once in a short that the whole cast and all the PA's where family of the director, and had no clue on how to make a film.)
So how do you build this network of friends? You go out and work inother people's projects, some times for free, some times for little money.The bottom line, you cannot expect a professional crew to work with youfor little or no money if you have never done it. Why would they? If theyhave never seen you busting your ass in another set.
