How to make a Science Fiction film with no budget!! This is a little look at the creative process behind a Science Fiction short film I made for next to nothing! ‘The Fantastic Adventures of Henry Hawke’ can be seen here: www.youtube.com www.twitter.com www.facebook.com More info: Inspired by ‘Star Wars’, ‘Escape from New York’, ‘Flash Gordon’ and ‘The Running Man’ – ‘The Fantastic Adventures of Henry Hawke’ is a ridiculously cheesy and over the top science fiction film that I made as my graduate project at Bournemouth University. Awesome music by my friend Sam ‘O Neil: www.soundcloud.com Toby Related tags: ‘student short film’ ‘student sci-fi’ ‘student sci fi’ ‘student science fiction’ ‘how to make sci fi’ ‘how to make sci-fi’ ‘cheesy sci fi’ ‘cheesy science fiction’ ‘indy filmmaking sci-fi’ ‘student sci-fi film’

    Do you think it would have been easier to have the boy and the old guy behind a green screen( Chromakeyer) rather than use Adobe to do all that complicated cutting?

    Very good. Just don’t forget that in space, there’s no sound on lasers and space ships, etc..
    (Things that Hollywood and Co. tend to forget)

    It’s amazing what film makers can achieve with just a bit of initiative. I’ve seen much worse produced for about the price of a new car.
