What Goes into Making a Movie

People living in the U.S. spend billions on movie-going each year. Many go for the experience, from the smell of movie theater popcorn to the ambience of hearing the movie so clearly it’s as if they’re in the movie too. Creating this popular pastime takes a village of people and involves different elements.

The Element of the Script

The script is the driving force of creating the movie. The first step to a movie being made is a producer finding a script they believe in. After that, they work to secure funding to bring that script to the big screen. The script determines dialogue and guides choices in casting, costuming, music, set design, lighting and other elements that contribute to the telling of the story.

Funding a Movie

Filming a movie takes money. Money pays for the cast and crew, who carry out all the necessary tasks that go into making a movie. Without a budget, it’s hard to make a high-quality film. Even making a simple film can cost more than you’d expect because of the work that goes into it from start to finish.

Who Is the Cast and Crew?

Everyone involved in making a movie is important for its success. However, a movie may not be made without a producer. Producers, such as Heather Parry who was an executive producer for A Star Is Born, are the people that get the film off the ground. They decide which scripts will get made into a movie, secure funding and hire the crew, including the director. A producer knows that making a movie requires different roles to be filled. The set has to be designed, including lighting; music, which helps set the tone, is composed or chosen; and what’s filmed, often out of order, has to be assembled by an editor into a clear storyline. Each person fills a unique role that brings the story to life.
