Things You Should Do When Doing Micro-Budget Screen Writing

Movies that are made on a micro budget are nothing new to the industry. They are a lot more common than you might know, especially when you look at the new screenwriters who are trying to make their name in the industry.

Believe it or not, you can produce an amazing movie even on a smaller budget. You do need a stellar script, and once you have that, you are good to go. There are so many great examples of low budget films in the industry that you can easily lose count.

If you are writing a micro-budget screenplay, and you want to make sure that everything is in order, then the good news is that if you follow the tips that we have for you, then you can easily create a great screenplay that will result in a great movie.

The Mind of a Producer

I know it sounds weird but if you think from the mind of a producer, you will know what to write and what not to write. Remember, you do not have a huge budget, so the expenses must be kept accordingly, and the writing should reflect that as well. You do not want to write scenes that are expensive to produce, because it does work like that.

Limited Locations

Something that many people completely overlook when writing micro-budget script is that they add so many different locations. Remember, the more locations there are in the script, the more expensive the production will cost. So, keeping that in mind, always make sure that the script you are writing has limited locations because that will make everything easier for the producers.

Use Everything You Have

You do not need to be an expert in rocket science to write a good screenplay. Whenever you are low on a budget, simply write about whatever you have. Even if these events are minor and do not hold a lot of significance, you should always write them for a better experience.

Keep The Page Count Low

Another important thing that you need to know here is that keeping the page count below 100 is the right way to do. Sure, you might feel like it is not enough but 100 pages are a lot to keep things simple and do the point

Avoid Night Shots

This is not something that many people will tell you but it is better to avoid night shots. Simply because night shots are expensive, and it is best that you avoid those because you are just going to spend more money if you do not do that. You are low on budget, so it is better if you just avoid those shots.

Natural Characters

Keep your characters natural, and do in mind that hiring top tier actors might not be possible, so you will have to make do with actors that are not going to cost you a lot of money, and will be natural for the roles that are given to them.

Everything You Need to Know About Disney+

For those who do not know, Disney is finally coming up with their streaming service called Disney+. This service has been in development for years, and it is actually an original development from Disney. It is still going to take some time, as the estimated time of arrival is the end of 2019. Once this service is out, it is going to be the go-to place for many of the original Disney movies, and movies from other productions as well.

We all know about the Disney and Netflix deal, but ever since Disney canceled all the Netflix shows, it only leaves us with the question whether they will be making a return to the Disney+ streaming service. With that said, you need to understand that once the streaming service is out, you will be able to stream pretty much every Disney property that is available.

Keeping that in mind, people still do not know a lot about the streaming service, and that is what we are going to look at.

A Lot of Original Content

When it comes to original content, Disney is not shy of the numbers at all. The company has so much of the original content that you would be surprised. With the streaming service making its way to the mainstream, you will be able to stream a lot of original content; both new and old, and the content will include both movies, as well as the television.

There WillB Missing Content as Well

Another important thing that you must know is that there will be missing content as well. Especially the original 6 Star War movies. Only because those movies are already a part of a deal that runs till 2024. However, we are not sure if Disney will be bringing those movies back to the streaming service, but it seems like a no brainer at this time.

The Launch Date

If you are wondering about the launch date, then you need to know that so far Disney has not announced any launch date. The only available information is that the service will be launching in late 2019. Needless to say, there are still a few months left before Disney finally announces the dates or more information about streaming servicing.

Pricing

For those interested in knowing the pricing, there is not an official word so far, but Disney did say that they will be launching the service with competitive pricing, additionally, they also stated that the users will be paying $7 per month, whereas the competition can cost upwards of $16 for premium plans.

Whether the pricing is official or not is something that we cannot confirm at the moment, but do keep in mind that Disney is pretty serious about the streaming service, and in order for the service to be a success, Disney will have to be careful about the pricing, and avoid overcharging the customers, because that will be a bad thing for it.

The Most Shocking Moments From Fyre Festival Documentary

For those who do not know or remember, the Fyre Festival that took place back in 2017 was perhaps the reason behind some of the biggest music stories of the decade. However, it was not popular because it was good, it was popular because it was a disaster. The advertising told every that this would be the most exclusive music event of all time, and that was only helped further by influential people like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

People did attend this event but they realized that it was all a sham. So much so that we already have two documentaries on this disaster of an event. The Fyre Festival documentary by Netflix sheds much-needed light on this whole predicament.

It Was Endorsed Without Knowing

Celebrities took part in endorsing the festival without even knowing what it is. The organizers paid them a good amount of money, and that is how the celebrities endorsed the event on Instagram and other social media platforms without having any knowledge whatsoever about what the event is all about.

No Beach Houses

The whole purpose of the organizer was to create a hype, and he did so by promising beach houses. However, when people did come there, they realized that the beach houses are not there.

The Use of Disaster Tents

The attendees were promised luxury yurts, however, in a situation of panic, and not knowing where to put all the guests, the organizers ended up getting disaster tends that was previously used when Hurricane Matthew took place.

A Lot of Rain

Just a night before the festival was supposed to take place, heavy rain did instead, and as you would expect, it ended up soaking every single tent, as well as all the single mattresses that were available. People who were attending the event paid a fortune just to get soaked in this mess.

The Food Disaster

The attendees were also promised catering service by Steven Starr, however, when the curtains were lifted, they realized that the food was just pieces of cheese, bread, and some vegetables. Imagine giving all of this to rich kids who never even made a sandwich on their own.

Peeing on Tents

The attendees got mad when they finally realized what was being done to them, and they started commandeering the tents as well as hoarding the toilet roll. However, in order to keep the people away from him, the organizer decided to have his friends pee on the mattresses that were in the surrounding tents.

Once a Crook Always a Crook

Just before he was sentenced, the organizer got arrested for trying to sell fake tickets to the Burning Man, as well as the Met Gala, and for some reason, all of this was caught on film by his own friend. The organizer is currently in jail and will be there for six years. At least we won’t be seeing a similar disaster.
