I think my first step is to consider what type of film I want to make, by that I mean how it would be categorised in a festival. Would it be CGI, live action, 2D etc?
My first thoughts are that I want a mixture of 3D and 2D. Mostly because I enjoy modelling and have discovered a love of animating in After Effects. However, I think it would be best to focus mainly on 3D and use After Effects to edit afterwards.
Furthermore, it gives me a chance to improve on a lot of aspects of work, I’ll get some experience in rigging, texturing, lighting, rendering and animating, along with getting to use different software.
That brings us to genre, ideally I’d like to do horror, as I love horror films. That being said, I think I should first settle on an idea before really nestling into a particular genre (or sub-genre). (*whispers* but it will be horror).
Right, so the next step I think is going to be settling on an idea.
