Series Summary

Film making is the process by which a film is made. The different stages of filmmaking include development, pre-production, production, post-production and distribution. A low budget film is a film that is cheaply produced by unrecognized directors who can not afford the costly sets, costumes, and actors (among other logistics of film making) that feature films can afford. Low budget film actors and technicians are not often paid and operate for the artistic idea.
