Low budget producing in various countries

You have your first short film(s) or even your first feature under your belt, and now you want to move on to the next, bigger production. One way to increase your production value is to produce your film in various countries, which is easier as you might think. In this course we cover similarities and differences of productions in different countries, focusing on the UK and Germany, but with a second outlook on producing in South East Asia and, as another option, facilitating the internet to build an international team of filmmakers to collaborate online. We cover the first steps on reaching out to crew based in another country, either with some funding already in place, but also if you have no funds to spare and attempt to make a micro budget production.
