    What's the best free video editing program? One that can export the video.

    Some people write software in their spare time as a hobby. There are a few open source softwares that had only one developer. Anim8or and Natron come to mind (Although Natron now has 3 full time employers I believe). They are actually really good too. Just wanted to get it out there that there...

    What's the best free video editing program? One that can export the video.

    Would like to add that Blender wasn't free. SOMEONE paid for it. I'm referring to the $180,000 cost to open source it (I think that was the price). Not to mention how it's been in the google summer of code for a while. It's free for us now. But because of what it went through it literally is...

    I use Blender's VSE as well. I'm very interested to know what that plug-in is that you were referring to if you don't mind. Also, the VSE doesn't have real-time view on the render preview. Do you usually have a workaround for that or does it not bother you? I'm thinking of switching to Shotcut...

    The Hollywood Look?

    I know I said I would post this a lot sooner, but I've been having a couple production issues. Anyways this is the teaser to my first feature film. It has NO BUDGET (Actually I think I spent like twenty dollars on the fake blood and gun, my brother helped with drone shots, some food for actors...

    Scenes that require a Kiss

    Yep same actress. The Distribution company that we plan to sell the film to seeks more family friendly material so it would be like a pop kiss and distant shot instead of a close-up or medium. She wasn't up for it. When I implied that at that distance we can play with the angles and we wouldn't...

    Scenes that require a Kiss

    What is the protocol when you have to do a kiss scene? I met an actress who applied for a romantic role only to tell me that she doesn't do kiss scenes because of her beliefs. Not even FAKE kissing scenes where you play with the angles to make it appear like they kissed. I thought a kiss scene...

    tv Indie TV Pilot?

    I know that most independent filmmakers will eventually want to make their feature film and get distribution for it. At least that's the plan right? What's the plan if you want to sell a TV pilot? Is it a similar process? You get a good idea, write a series outline, write a script, cast, and...

    Yeah I get you now.

    Do Directors need to be tough?

    She simply said she's never worked in a project that did that and that it doesn't sound very smart. To be honest there are better ways she could have said her opinion. Saying it like that was not alright. I told her to say a lot of her lines all at once without stopping the recording and that I...

    Asking for Video Auditions or Not?

    That's exactly what I did haha. I won't do that again as some people never got back to me and now my full script is out there for anyone to sell. How can you tell if someone is right from video auditions? I gave the role to someone who did alright on a video audition, but now me and my team...

    Asking for Video Auditions or Not?

    On my latest project I received like 70 applications. Some people applied for more than 1 role so I don't know how many actually applied. I only needed 3 roles, so I contacted about 11 people. Sent them the script in PDF file and asked for a video audition. Only 4 got back to me with questions...

    Do Directors need to be tough?

    I am taking on my first feature as a Producer, Director, VFX Supervisor, etc. and I've ran into a few issues. I was explaining a certain shot to an actress and she said I shouldn't do a shot the way I described. I told her it would be fine because I would make a lot of the cuts in editing. She...

    Underage Actors?

    When it comes to Actors who are still minors what is the legal process? I know that when you have actors you have them sign a release form handing you the rights for their image and voice in the film as well as using their image or likeness for marketing and promotion and other stuff. When you...

    How Important is Chemistry?

    Thanks for your advice. We didn't do just the romantic scene, we rehearsed ALL her scenes. I had a very short runthrough with another actress (less than 10mins). Also just the two of us, same building. It was my first time meeting her (accepted her based on her audition tape) so that's why I...
