Advancement in technology and the internet have revolutionized indie filmmaking. You can shoot an entire film and do everything around the production on your laptop. Even though this is possible, you need to have an idea of how to start Indie Film production company. Here is a guide to starting an independent film production company.

First of all, you need to determine what genre you want to focus on. Choose something that people will want to watch. You have a lot to choose from, for example, action, horror, fantasy and so on and so forth. You can also choose to mix something like mystery and thriller and get something you would enjoy producing.

Now that you have this figured out, it is time to think about what your role will be. Well, would you want to be the one writing the Indie Film or would you rather be the producer or even director? Well, you cannot be all these things because you will be stretching yourself too thin. If you don’t know how to do any of these things, you will need to find people who are good at this. You will need a team of talented individuals like a director, a producer and all that.

Now that you have found a team to work with, you should consider what your company name will be. Do your research so that you don’t find yourself infringing copyright laws. Find something that has not been used yet but make it unique. It should be something that stands out among the many production companies today, something that people will remember.

Just like any other company, you need to come up with the profile for your company. You need the vision, mission and the goal of your company. Come up with a plan for the company and what activities you will be doing. You don’t want it to be vague because it will fail. Include the partners of your company so that your clients will know who to contact.

Now that all this is out of the way, you should consider where you will get your funding. If you have enough savings, you could use that. Ask your friends and family if they could chip in and help you fund the company. There is an opportunity to fundraise online too through fundraising campaigns.

An important thing to note is that you need to have connections and network with other filmmakers. This will make the journey that much easier for you. There is so much more to do but this guide will give you a good start. Discover more facts about video production at http://www.ehow.com/videos-on_9909_video-production-basics.html.
