How Movies Are Made

Considering the way to make movies, it’s a common assumption that there is a standard mode of production for films. The fact is there are many ways to make films. More accurately, one could say there is no single way to go about making a movie correctly. However, if it is the common processes involved in making a movie, it consists mainly of three parts – the pre-production, the principal photography and lastly, post-production.
Movies are born from ideas. In that case, the pre-production involves the conception of an idea, which the director, producer, or anyone who wants to make a film does. Films may not just be an original conception. They can be inspired by a book or another film with some changes made. When the story is decided, that’s when the writers begin writing a script for the film. Sometimes, a single person can conceive the idea, create the story and write the whole screenplay.
After the writing of the script, the producers take a look at it and when it’s good to go, the next is casting. At other times, casting is done first where the idea, story, and script are created based on the actor. The next in the process is the creation of the storyboard. This helps in communicating the idea to everyone in the crew, particularly the cinematographer. The art director handles the creation of the set, and then a schedule is drawn based on the actors' schedule, the locations for filming and the different phases of the actual shooting.
All of these are only in the pre-production, which then is followed by principal photography. This is the process when the movie is actually made. The movie can be shot in digital cameras or film. The crew handles the set or location, sound recording, lighting, camera movements, and the actor’s performance. When all scenes are shot, then follows the post-production. This is where editors play an important role in editing the footages to make a movie as they intended.
