Filmmaking tips from the Bahamas Film Industry

                              Making  your  film a reality

If money is no object and you are well established you can make any kind of movie on any subject matter and you can do it on any continent.
if you are  just starting out, the best way to make your film a reality without spending a lot of money is to:
1. Base it around the things that you already have.
2.The environment you are in
3.The people around you.
For example, don’t try writing a screenplay that has to take place aboard a speeding yacht,  unless you own one or can afford to rent or buy one. If you don’t even know a friend who owns one, the film will never happen.
First, visualize your movie inside your head, shot by shot, cut by cut.  Draw out those shots on a storyboard. Next, you’ll need equipment, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a camera. Just ask a friend or someone you know that has a camera, to borrow their own. Some film schools and civic organizations offer year round training that includes equipment. Finally, there’s post-production. When you have finished shooting your movie, you need to find a good processor to develop your film. Sometimes they give discount rates to students or low – budget productions. Lastly,  you will need to edit. After it’s changed to video format you can use a video editing system like:  Final cut pro or Avid to do your editing.- starsinparadise.com

Entering the Bahamas Film Industry as a writer.

    Writing your first screenplay. 

Go simple, learn fast. The tricks and the trade of successful Bahamian movie industry writers.


If you missed the opportunity to train at the Megavision Kingdom, there may still be hope for you. Stars In Paradise would like to share a few tips to get you started.

 Pick a subject you know well. If you don’t know how to write, then that’s okay,  you can just start writing your first draft the way you write, to get the story out of your head and onto paper, but it’s a good idea to take some writing classes so you can learn the standard format, so your script will make sense to others in the industry.  The important thing is just to get started and push  hard to a finish.  - starsinparadise.com
