    Hey all, some friends and I are going to make an action-style movie(picture the Bourne trilogy)and I wanted to know what tips you all have for that kind of movie. I'm using a pretty cheap Panasonic camera and a friend has another camera much like it. I'll be using iMovie '09(wish FCE 5 would come out!), so there's not a lot of special effects and such that I can do. Thanks for your time and help! :apple:

    Thanks for the help! It looks like it's got some awesome reviews, so I'll have to check it out. Anything else, community?

    That book is better than any advice you could get on this board. For action movies on the cheap, there is none better than The Rebel's Guide.

    This is something me and my friends did which seems to be very similar to yours!

    Have a watch and pick out some of the good bits and some of the bad bits.

    In retrospect come up with a good script before hand and stick to it otherwise it becomes an absolute pain!

    Be sure to post it when your done. What's the time frame of this production?
