You will need a script. A film that is made up as a film maker goes along will look like it.
And you will not want that. Professionals show up with a screenplay. It is the map of your production. It list the shoots, the locations and tells the actors what to do. If you have never written a screenplay before you will need to do two things. First go one line a google free scripts. Read a few of the scripts to the movies that you love. Next get a book on how to do it and what you must consider while writing it. My book, On Writing a Low Budget Screenplay would be a good starter book.

You will want a computer to edit your finished film on. You can edit on your smartphone and there are some great apps, but you will want a computer that is loaded with more powerful editing software to produce a better finished film.

You will need to watch films. Watch as much iphone footage as possible.

The last thing that you must keep in mind is to have fun. Film making should be fun. You are doing it to have fun. When doing something you love it fun and should not feel like a job.
