Making Short Film: Learn from my mistakes, not yours!

I'm an actor and a story writter. Thought of tranforming my stories into short films, all 7 stories! So, I dared to be a film maker with a very small budget.

There was nobody to finance me as I had no background as a film maker. Nobody listened to me being an international award winning actor and a writer with good stories which can be easily f...
