Dig into the psyche. Show the inside and out. obsession = drama.

your film is your film. there is always someone who will not like your film.

Go handheld and follow the person from the waist. Don’t hold up on shoulders because its home movie style. create different angles.

Shaky isn’t too bad for that independent look.

Get a reflector and use the sun. Have to find a way to get the shot you need.

Just make a film.

don’t want to mix lights. think about light source and white balance. when it comes to lights find a fuse box because you will probably blow a fuse.
