The Filmmaking Process: The Idea

The movie is first made in the head.

  • The story that is inside the brain, in the beginning, serves as a foundation to the project, which will eventually see lots of changes, twists and turns.
  • Important story elements like plot, characters, narrative, conflict etc. are decided at this stage.
  • It is good to carry a notepad or install a note-taking app to jot down fresh ideas that come up in this initial stage.
  • Keep a note of newspaper articles, real-life observations and even dreams!
