So, I've been thinking much about this movie I have to shoot next year. As it's about the most important project in my life so far, I'm thinking on many things even though I have at least a full year until the production starts (the shooting itself is planned to take another year). First off, the cameras: I right now own a NEX-5, which we have to use as second camera. The main camera is going to be either a NEX-FS100 if we can get a good deal on lending one (I hope somebody in the team knows somebody who lends these things ^^), a NEX-7 or it's successor. So not top-of-the-line video quality, but with very good lighting and the best possible colour corrections on pp this shouldn't be the problem. Why the NEX-system? Simple - as I already have a NEX-camera as well as the 24mm CZ which will be used for wide shots (a 85mm or, if not available 'til then, the 50mm will be used on the second camera, with the 18-55mm as a backup for weird angles) it's simply the cheapest way to get good-enough equipment. I don't bother with tripods and lighting right now. I already looked at some Manfrotto tripods with video head and some studio and outdoor lights with enough power, but that's the things we'll buy at the last month before start shooting. Big question is now: Which genre do people want to see? As we don't have much budget (but more than enough friends and family-members as extra actors), we have to keep looking closely to the progress of the script, but before we start a brainstorm and writing, what's your preferred genre? And what's your preferred seemingly low-budget movie? I'm open for everything. For example, I pretty much like apocalyptic scenarios like Zombieland (horror-comedy) or Carrier (extremely cheap produced, but a nice thriller). But I also like action movies like Fight Club (probably too expensive and complicated) or horror movies like 'Room 1408' which could be easily made cheap (actually, most horror movies aren't too expensive), of course without hollywood-style special effects. But I'm also open to fables like Pans Labyrinth (love the costumes!). I'm just skeptical at dramas, as in my opinion most share the same core story components, so without a great idea I'd focus on something else. As far as duration is concerned, I don't know. Of course I would love a 90 min blockbuster, but in reality it's close to impossible to shoot a 90 minute movie anybody cares to watch in just one year with low budget, so it depends. Thanks for your help! Every opinion is important!
