$30 Film School, Second Edition is a very informative and readable introduction to all aspects of making your own movie very inexpensively. Every aspect of the art is covered, from funding to equipment to techniques. While the second edition of the book came out in 2006, in today’s world it is already slightly out of date in that there is no mention of the ultimate DIY filmmaker’s medium-the web, as in Youtube. Actually, Michael Dean has recently co-authored another book on this very topic, which I’ll be buying and reviewing in the near future!
If you are really on a low budget, you might want to look into the No Budget Filmmaking program, which includes detailed instructions on all aspects of making films as well as software that you will need to write scripts and edit your film.
