EXPERIENCING THE ART OF FILM MAKING @ SGMP!!!

1.

You’ve been tasked to book a huge studio to build a set resembling a palatial bungalow.

“The Tycoon”

No one in the market would want to rent out a real bungalow for a 40-episode, hour-long drama series.

Each episode has at least 30 page counts for the set…

But how? Keep in mind, the studio is no longer available after 30 days of shoot.

How do we schedule that…

SGMP’s solution: Understand the “Production Strip Board”!

2.

They said there was no need to apply for any permits to shoot at the façade of that protected area..

They claimed it was just 50 meters away from the building..

Is that true?

But the fact was that some one came and detained them…They said there was no need to apply for any permits to shoot at the façade of that protected area..

Is that true?

SGMP’s Secret: Know Singapore’s laws!

3.

They are the most indispensable key men in prep and on set.

I would say, Continuity Supervisors should start work in checking the continuity between all the scenes…

Script Breakdown?

Unveil the niche beneath the lines…

The 1st AD can shoulder this…

Or even the Continuity Supervisor

They are both the most crucial Right-hand man to the film director…

SGMP’s Recipe: Know the roles of the Continuity Supervisor the 1st AD!

4.

Don’t Let the Talent Wait

Call Time on Call Sheets…

For the Crew and Talents too?

Stagger their arrival time.

When no one bothers about the call sheet and even stepped on it on the floor on set, ask ourselves this first question:

Are we always not punctual on set?

Over run?

Look at how it eats into your profit.

SGMP’s Ultimate Secret: On the set, ensure that the crew, props, costumes, equipment and all the assets are in place. Communication between actors, directors and other crew members is essential. And most importantly, Get the budget right!

Don’t Let the opportunity slip away!

You are waiting for the lift.

Standing beside you is Steven Spielberg.

He’s also waiting for the lift.

The lift car door opens. Both of you step into the lift.

You have 30 seconds before Steven Spielberg reaches another 6 floors up to pitch your idea to him.

What are you going to tell him?

SGMP’s Ultimate Review: Learn to write an elevator pitch!
