Shooting a movie often leads to long, tiring hours. Be sure to eat healthy food and get enough sleep before production begins. You'll need as much energy as you can muster.

If possible, shoot any establishing shots, nondescript insert shots, and special effects shots after you complete principal photography (shooting any shots that involve the main actors).

So I been reading up and hearing a lot of you guys asking a trillion question about which camera to get or which camera is better. I got one piece of advice for you guys. If you have a script, just get your actors and go out there and shoot! Stop breaking your head about cameras. Yes having a $20,000 would be great but the thing is, there is one thing a lot of us indie filmmakers have in common and that is something called "budget". We find ourselves working with low-to-no budget a lot of the time. Instead of worrying about the kind of camera you should get or use, just do it with whatever camera you have. Remember the camera is just the canvas, it really comes down to the painter.
We have come to live in a world where everybody wants the easy way. When someone takes the time to create something from the heart and fight for what they want, it means the world to me. Success is just a word unless you go out there and make it happen.
