    Not news but sometimes with wonderful new gear coming out constantly it can get lost. Learn some basics and make it happen. Story, acting, sound. (Beautiful cinematography not on list)(big shock no one cares) 1. Get a camcorder, (whatever flavor) all budget ranges up to 4K. 2. You're a writer or an actor you can come up with a 3 minute story. 3. Find an actor who is not a jerk. 3. Get a lavalier and learn how to wire an actor. Dozens it not hundreds of videos out there. Search eBay. Maybe your camcorder has xlrs. If not lots of other solutions. lighting grab what you have, clamp light, buy a bulb for practical lamp. You can do a lot with one good fixture and some bounce. Shoot a couple of films and you'll quickly learn what you need and what you want.

    Funnel (2014). 7 minutes. Written by, directed by, and starring Andre Hyland. Official selection, Sundance Film Festival. There was already a thread about this film a few years ago, but your post reminded me of it.

    Once you start making films other filmmakers will come out of the woodwork and help with your next film. Another thing writers can do once your longer firm script is in shape is grab a couple of actors or models or friends that resemble your idea of the characters and shoot stills. Don't spend a lot of money or time on this. It will give a visual idea to possible collaborators what your vision is. It also elevates you to another level of seriousness that may encourage someone on the fence to get involved.
