  • Crew

Of course you need a nice working team to make a film. It is the very important subject for every good production. If your working team is not so good, you will be get a lose project in this sector. So, think and choose some extra quality person for your Working team as Crew. May be you think, crew are not important, because you have good actor, actress, ultra modern camera, visualization etc. But, I suggest you, never think that. You can’t believe that, a worker can try to make a nice work for you. So count it.

Actor Actress Select

Select Actor & Actress for your Films

  • Actors-Actress/Cast

Very very important subject. But you can use your head in this sector. Please never work with newbie in your first time. It can be lose project for you, even your work will be good.
So, try to cast your Acting team with minimum known Actor and Actress. It will be a good result for your work and also valuable.
It is the best, select your Actor & Actress list from little known list. It will be save your cost and your work will be fine.

You need a time schedule. So make full schedule for your full shooting work and for all. It is give you a better work and save more cost and time.
