How to Make a Micro-Budget Film

BY BRITTANY RAFALAK
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

Brittany Rafalak is an independent filmmaker who shares some useful tricks and know-how she has learned through the years for making a film on a budget. Unlike other creative artists, a filmmaker can't simply pick up a camera and start filming, so she has had to devise creative strategies to produce the films she wants, on a limited budget. Her presentation inspires us as creative artists, even those who are not filmmakers, to not let finances stop us from achieving our vision.
