I recently graduated from the one year producing program at New York Film Academy. I have a roster of short films that I have written which I want to try to produce this coming year but I am feeling a bit apprehensive. The plan is to direct them myself and shoot with my DSLR camera, basically using the resources I have at hand. The purpose of these production being for me to figure out if I want to be a Writer/Producer or a Writer/Producer/Director.
I think what I am worried about is asking actors to be a part of my films because they are going to be filmed in a very amateurish way (if you get what I mean)
Does anyone have any stories to share about their experiences producing films fresh out of film school?
