    This was pretty great! Gonna find it hard not to exclaim "Goddammit, gravity's a bitch!" in my every day life now. How did you capture the sound?

    Hello again!

    lol I mean, there's still some "poke a wow wow." Just not as much, it's a lot quieter, and we take steps to make sure it doesn't lead to another baby.

    Tell, not show?

    Agreed. It's a common misconception that "show don't tell" means "no talking." Little or no talking is extremely tough to pull off, and when it's not done right can make your script/film very boring. But I'd add a small caveat, if you find that you have a long monologue or conversation...

    Hello again!

    Didn't realize it had been over five years since last I logged on. Things that have changed for me: I now have two daughters. I now work as a video producer for the Texas Department of Insurance. I now think about retirement a lot.

    Pico Dolly

    Wanted to make a recommendation for the Pico Dolly. It's a nifty little piece of equipment I recently started using on my shoots (here's an example).

    You remember Spat (aka Dennis)? His video Shit Rich People Say has over 125,000 views in a little less than a month (it hit 80,000 in a few short days). No prob. It was something that we looked long and hard at before uploading. We're talking about creating actual TV Spots based on the three...

    watch Security Company Online Ad

    I did a lot of research regarding "fair use" before creating the video. I read info available online, spoke with a few lawyers, and entered into holy commune with the gods of anti-piracy. What I figured out is that the laws governing "fair use" are ambiguous and confusing and that there is no...

    I was the same way, then another old IndieTalker (Spatula) showed me that he did one for his company and I thought "what the heck". Yeah. Bosses said they were fine with it. We're going with the "fair use" argument.

    favorite Your Favorite Kubrick Film

    @Dready -- I've always viewed it as such. I don't see how people could be shocked by that thought. Sure, it's dramatic. But there are strong overtones of dark humor throughout the film.
