On how to make a movie


This article is for all those who want to start or improve on the writing of a film or its realization and to know about how to make a movie.

First, I would like to congratulate you because the adventure in which you are going to start off with is one of the most beautiful. You are going to doubt, be excited, in short, move from one emotion to another in the course of your progression, from your imagination.

You already know, or at least you guessed it : the writing or the execution was not meant to stay in a closet. Your scenario is intended to be read, and your film to be seen. So don’t forget that at one point you will be faced with a producer, a director (if your aim is to become a script writer), or readers of the commissions of films regional, national or international. As much as to say to an industry that has its own rules and pitfalls.

Once you have integrated this, you are about to take an important decision for your life : making a film, scenario. And believe me, this is going to change everything. Don’t worry, I’ll be there to help you, to guide you.

Before I begin, I would just like to introduce myself. My name is TOM WEIL and 17 years ago I decided to make the film. I had just turned 20 years old, and at the time I exercais a job vrp ; suffice to say that we were far from the film sets. And then in the course of an ordinary day, in front of all these doors that were hard to open, it appeared to me as obvious that I didn’t want to do it all my life. So I decided to give up everything because the world of cinema for me, it was and that he was only waiting for me. I have not done any studies in specialized schools, I’m not from a rich family with tons of connections, I’m probably like you : a self-taught.

As you can imagine, nobody was waiting for me. The digital mumbled, internet also. So I had to spend a lot of time to read a lot of books, watch tons of movies, training achievements, of the scriptures. In short, the obstacle course.

A decade has passed, and today the access to cameras is much more simple. The information on the internet appear to be simple to find and there are a multitude of them. So all the “young” writers or film-makers should have more facilities. Guess what ?? I was wrong ! Because on the net you find everything and anything.

Since my beginnings, I lost time, a lot of time and made mistakes. The mistakes are sometimes good, because they allow you to move on, to learn. But too many errors this is never good. I didn’t have the key, and especially one to me give it a shot.

Today, I work for television and the cinema. Only in fiction, movies or television dramas. I am in contact with writers, directors, producers, commissions. I live my passion. I write for years, I realize. I form my turn “youth” on the trays. But if I had a tool, a place where you tell me, train me, I would have worked earlier on a film set. I would have been able to enjoy it more soon.

That is why, since now a year and a half, I answer on various forums to people who ask questions, who are experiencing difficulties in the pursuit of their dream or in their professionalization as making/ writing a film is a real tour de force. But I realized that it was a job without end. Too many forums, too many people. And I do not have enough time.

This is why, I decided to put this blog online. Help a maximum of people, just with a tool. A place where the exchange and the boards would have their place. Put my experience and knowledge at the service of the greatest number.

What you need to write :

– Software such as Final draft, celtx or scripped. You do not need to break the bank, Word or Open office will do the job ; a piece of paper and a pencil as well… But you say that the technology or the latest software, the mode will not help you to have inspiration. On the other hand today you have the opportunity to write everywhere all the time and when you get home, you can export your files written “on the road” directly to your computer thanks to applications such as celtx : for the IPAD or IPHONE.


I suggest that you learn how to :

– write a séquencier

– write a screenplay

– write a note of intention and treatment

– Learn the technical vocabulary and the language of cinema

– Make a decoupage technique

– The preparation for the shooting

And all the most common questions you ask yourself will be the subject of specific items.

So here is a Bible blog to learn the cinema and learn all about how to make a movie from A to Z.

We always try to be as clear as possible in our explanations, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to leave us a little message.
