Low-Budget Filmmaking Tip #101

Avoid international castigation.

Unless there’s a voice coach involved, really think about it before you use non-native accents. People are usually excited being in a movie and will go overboard and their lines pretty much become unintelligible.

Don’t get me wrong — everybody’s got at least one Dr. Who fan film in ’em — but just consider doing takes without the accents, too. You won’t regret it in editing.
