    software Need alternate video editing tool

    It doesn't really work like that out of the box. You have to put in some real effort for your data to get uploaded. If memory serves me correct, you need to be connected every 30 or so days. It's a problem for air gapped systems, but if you're using Premiere Elements, there's no way you have...

    cameras What is camera do I use for a short

    I'm not a camera guy, but one piece of advice I can give you. A camera you have is better than any camera you don't have. Focus on telling the story. If I were you, I'd shoot with your Nikon and focus the rest of your efforts into getting your audio right before you worry further on the...

    pre-pro How true is this?

    > I asked a production manager on how best to go about making my film and if I need to make a short first and he said NO. You don't have to make shorts first, but the issue you're going to run into it: You don't know what you don't know. You won't have the experience to draw upon to know if...

    software Need alternate video editing tool

    Why not try some of the better free options? Avid and Resolve both have decent free editing programs.

    pre-pro Fundraising Question

    The best thing to do is empty your pockets and use your own money. Poor AF? Do the Robert Rodriguez. Rent your body for scientific research. It seems to be an efficient thing to do. He did it and look at him now. He owns his own network these days. What's the worst that can go wrong? I'm sure...

    suggestion What do you want to see?

    Adding to the stock video/stuff idea. There used to be a deal at Videoblocks & audioblocks where you could get one of those all you could eat deals for $99/year. They've changed to storyblocks but I think they upped the price. Put something together and sell access for something like $40/year...

    suggestion What do you want to see?

    I like the idea. I wouldn't use it myself (I built up a decent sound effect / music library already.

    suggestion What do you want to see?

    What about extending the idea. There's a marketplace for people buying stock footage/music/sfx/vfx. What about selling stock footage provided by the indietalk community... with a split of the profits of course.

    So it does. I saw the threads before, I just didn't put two and two together. Thanks

    marketing Feedback of short trailer and distribution advises

    People don't care whether it's a run and gun or not. You can have shakey camera work and people may consider it a stylistic choice. If you have crappy sound, you come across as amateur or incompetent. Dodgy audio is dodgy. It makes the audience work considerably harder to watch your show. You...

    computers Help with PC build for Video editing and design

    Historically, it has been, in both terms of speed and reliability. I don't really edit anymore, so I haven't kept up with the new tech (both in the computer and in the PP engine) in the last year. There were suggestions that Adobe was moving away from favoring the first four cores to all cores...

    marketing Feedback of short trailer and distribution advises

    As Ray mentioned, there's are heaps of these and a huge majority of them fail. This concept could be good but the executition isn't. I believe, at a dead minimum, it needs to have professional level production value. I was an editor on a high budget, celebrity cooking and health show in exotic...
