Disastrous dates- short films

Hello! I'm an Actress & I've been thinking about getting some people together to make some short films. I've had some really disastrous dates in my time..... and I'm thinking after relaying them to people I know, that they might be quite entertaining for some type of mini series of short films. Does anyone have any advice on how to get started as I don't know much about behind the camera! I'd love to get involved in directing on the other side of the camera as well as acting too. Thanks :)

Dan Gibbs

That sound fun, Have you got anything written yet?

Faith Elizabeth

I have written a rough draft of a script for one particular disastrous evening! lol

Ryan Brewer

You'll love it! It's good to get your feet wet with some compulsive filmmaking. That may sound like a bad thing, but believe me it's not. Is there anything more specific you're interested in finding out?

Ryan C. Davis

Sounds like a great series idea. I have some great ones to share if you're looking for someone to script an episode or two. Let me know. they would all be from real life. Let's just say I was the King of First Dates before getting married.

Dan Gibbs

That's cool would you like to throw some dialogue back and forth? I also have some great trick on getting a pilot shot on the cheap once you've got the everything nailed down .

Zlatan Mustafica

I love the idea, Faith. I would love to hear more about it.

Richard "RB" Botto

Not only love the idea, but I love how many 32'ers are rallying around it. That's what this platform is all about!

Faith Elizabeth

Thanks everyone for the support & the private messages! :) Ill get back to everyone! Richard, the support has been great, and from film makers from all over the world! :) (p.s I'm looking forward to returning to Cannes again this year! Hope to see you again!)

My recommendation is buy a camera, watch a few youtube tutorials, find people who are hungry for it, write scripts and learn how to edit as well. That's what I did.

Richard "RB" Botto

Hey Faith! Coincidentally, my crew and I were just working on some Cannes plans this morning. Looking forward to seeing you again!

Faith Elizabeth

Oooo exciting Richard!! :) I'm busy buying dresses & sorting out some accommodation! :) We'll have to catch up over champagne again! :P

Richard "RB" Botto

Yes, we will. Done.

Michael Van Koetsveld

Hi Faith, Did anything come of this idea? I would be interested from a scriptwriter/cinematographer/editor point of view (yes, that makes me cross-eyed too).

Terry Owen

Faith, when you have completed your project check out... and our soon to launch global distribution network AkyumenTV, we have signed non-binding global distribution agreements with around 800+ INDIE filmmakers from around the world with all genres (except XXX) and shorts, features, web series and docs... significant revenue potential for our INDIE filmmaking partners who have content on our platform... did you know that by 2018 India, APAC and Africa will be the largest consumer audience of USA related film/tv and along with our exclusive streaming rights into mainland China... and through our devices, AkyumenTV will have a significant captive global audience (we will be global with our device and OTT).... SO get in touch with me @ and spread the word to your peers creating great content and looking a viable outlet for consumer consumption!
