One of the most important things you can do...
If you are serious about making a movie, digital video, or film...
Go to school for it.
In the United States the, THE film school is at USC, the University of Southern California Cinematic Studies school, Here is the link to the Stark School of Cinematic Studies:
I personally am going to download the PDF files that have the course sylabi available.
By doing this I will be able to read the recommended course books and educate myself about that particular field of Motion Picture making.
The problem is, there isn't a syllabus available for every course BECAUSE:
Many of the courses are hands on and taught by industry professionals. And often the courses do not have a syllabus available because of an agreement by the school and the individual teaching the course. Most of the teachers are working in the industry, and come to the school one day or night per week to teach a course.
Today I went to my local library and took out a book on making a movie, "The complete guide to making a movie - low budget and beyond." By Lorene Wales, reviewed positively by Kritie Stahl, the producer and owner of Whitestone pictures.
Here is a link to a Whitestone online story:
