  1. Is a professional still able to enjoy movies as an audience?

    I agree with Feutus Lapdance. I find watching films more enjoyable when i appreciate all of the elements that come together to make the final film. Although i do think there is a time and place to take a film and deconstruct it. But, personally I don't try and focus on individual elements...

  5. watch Halloween Theme (1978) Live Cover

    The Halloween theme composed by John Carpenter is one of my favorite horror film themes of all time. I just saw the new one (and LOVED it), so I thought I would try and record a live cover. It took a few tries, but I played everything live in a single unedited take. Enjoy. I shot it with a...

    Hi Benny!!! Nice tunes. I dug your reel.
  7. The problem with over analyzing movies

    Along these same lines. I was in Target the other day, browsing the movies and heard a lady in her 30's tell her husband, who was looking at John Carpenter's Halloween, "That movie is atrocious". Who has this opinion??? Maybe you don't like it, but atrocious? I was 80% angry and 20% sad she...

    As far as the noise reduction, I would use as little of it as possible. A quick rule of thumb on a lot of that kind of stuff is to set it where you think it should be and then back off a tad. A little goes a long ways. Your audio didn't sound that muffled in the videos before ep13. Were you...

    Hmm. it sounds really muffled or something. It was sounding pretty good in ep11. What did you do differently?
  15. HELP ME! (Questions for short film!)

    Welcome. I'm a composer, so I don't have a ton of experience recording sound in the field. However, I've talked to a number of pros about some of these issues (filming outdoors, best mics, etc). A good shotgun mic will help, because it's pickup pattern is very tight. If you're unfamiliar with...
