Do you have a smartphone? Great - then you're all set. If not, ask to borrow a friend's for a few hours.
Whether it's an iPhone, Samsung, Nokia, whatever - if it has a camera and can download apps, then that's all you need to get started.
'Wait!' you might say. 'What do we make a movie about?'. Well, you have lots of options. It could be based on real life events (either famous, or from your own lives). Or, it could be fictional and you and your Old Mate's creativity can run wild.
There might be costumes, or props, or sets. You could make puppets. It could be a documentary with interviews. You could make sets. It might be small and only last a minute, or it could be a feature length masterpiece taking home the Oscar next year. Who knows!
The key is to not overthink it. Simply brainstorm some ideas over a coffee or tea (or perhaps something stronger) and just run with it. It might be terrible, but that's part of the fun!
Oh! When you share your movie with the world, make sure to both hashtag it #OLDMATE, and please please please email us the link as we'd love to share it with the world :)
