Advice for ...
Advice for locations; 1. make friends (I find that a good place to start is with people who run and work in community centers), 2. a director I did a course with said he loves buildings that are going to be demolished and he approaches people who own buildings that are going to be replaced soon and offers them a little bit of money in exchange for a few days of shooting. (you also might be able to be less careful in them.) 3. Churches and church halls can sometimes be rented for not too much
For locations: if ...
For locations: if you are in school (or not but near a college and willing to tell a little tiny white lie) just tell them you're a student working on a project and you need to film indoors. They may be able to supply a good location

For the indoors ...
For the indoors filming issue: Don't be shy, KNOCK ON PEOPLE'S DOORS and ask. I just co-directed a short film for a 48-hour contest held by the Guanajuato International Film Festival and won. Our crew paid several visits to the city and literally asked for indoor locations by asking people straight forward if we could use their houses as sets, and most of them kindly complied once we explained it was for a short film. I've never been to NJ or met anyone from there but it can't hurt to ask
And I just want ...
And I just want people to take pictures of but no one wants to stand in front of a camera and let me take pictures of them! bah! Even tried that Model Mayhem website and haven't heard back.

My worst experience ...
My worst experience is with actors who do not show up or say they are gonna show up then don't. Usually I find work arounds like I call in another actor or in the beginning I would book multiple actors for different days and get them to come in. the worst one was I was shooting a short for school and the actor showed up one day but not the other so all of the other shots were scrapped and I reshot the whole thing in one day.
For 500 you could ...
For 500 you could get one of the Sony NEX's pretty cheap.
