The short filmmaking experience at university

I thought it is best to write about my experience making a project at university. I will start from pre production and talk about the planning process. It did involve a lot of planning as we did make a sci fi short film. Writing took about a month as I wrote the first draft long hand and then wrote the other drafts on adobe story. I love writing and I really loved writing this script. I loved it because I delved with my imagination to the maximum.

It is a sci fi and that required going to your imagination to the maximum and creating a world from your mind on screen. It is never the same exact way you wanted but it is pretty close in terms of telling the story.

Filming was a challenge but also fun at the same time. We filmed for 5 days and filmed in 7 different locations. It felt like a big budget film, and we treated it as like that.

Then for editing, it was a long process, as it required original music, visual effects, ADR and colour correction.


It was an ambitious task to commit to, but it was worth the hard work. I believe in that saying that hard work pays off. And I truly believed that my hard work had paid off.
