Creating a Film Based on Narrative

filming narrative

Who – or what – is your film about?

One good way to make sure that your film is solid and manages to really strike a chord with the rest of your audience and website visitors is to ensure that you write an excellent narrative structure. Needless to say, as any other tech blog will probably readily tell you, such can be made possible through various steps. However, if you can at least focus on some of the steps and on doing them well, you can somehow take a bold step forward towards better storytelling in short films, something the industry needs nowadays.

Some Things to Try for Creating Narrative

One thing you can try doing in order to develop your narrative structure is to write a character sketch that will be as detailed as you can manage. If you can make five characters and develop each one’s story, background, and perhaps key roles in your narrative, that would be really great.

Another thing you can do is, if you’ve already written a script, try reading it aloud over and over again. Does it work? Do the lines mesh well together? Or are there inconsistencies in the lines that you story would do better without? Be very clear when it comes to these questions, because they just might determine the impact that your narrative structure will have on your viewers.

When filming, remember to set up your video camera on a tripod. If you don’t have one, make your own. if your filming in the hallway, put the camera on a chair, or even the closet shelf.  A good angle for a running scene its to turn the tripod upside down with the camera on it, and point it at whomever is running.

It might also be good to have a narrator to help in the movement and flow of your narrative. Have the movie complete, and have the narrator record his voice as he watches the movie. Most computers now have a built in microphone, but if not, webcams work fine, and you can purchase microphones at your local computer or tech shops.

Also, in every step of the way, don’t forget to try and enjoy yourself.
