    Save Point - an interactive animated series

    I love the idea of interactive videos. I've toyed with the idea using Blue-rays programming capabilities for a movie that has gates chosen then compiled into the finished movie. The tone and even the outcome of the movie would depend on some simple questions you would have to answer before the...

    Save Point - an interactive animated series

    That series of pictures is powerful. I could feel an emotion starting to rise. Maybe it's because I'm a cat person but I was truly drawn in by the cat, which appears to be on a journey of some sort. Bravo, Nate!

    Couldn't have put it better myself

    The mystery of movies is that nobody can tell what will succeed. I mean, who would have guessed that a movie starring Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman would tank? Yet Ishtar was made and it did tank.. ,, and who would have guessed that 3 improv actors with a camcorder and no script and almost no...

    "Well, I would imagine that post work has some value, lol. (I'm guessing you haven't seen a lot of my work)" I too am a "post" guy. Also special character creator. I've worked pro and semi-pro. Mostly Indie. I've had my 15 minutes but mostly I'm a 9 to 5 working stiff with some special...

    Excel Tips

    In Excel, the Visual Basic scripts you can write are called Macros. They are little programs that operate within Excel They aren't meant to run outside of Excel because they call data from whatever cells within your spreadsheet you want them to look at. Visual Basic is a programming language...

    Excel Tips

    I find that the real power behind Excel and Access is in the ability of the user to write and execute Visual Basic scripts to carry out whatever it is you want your spreadsheet or database to do for you. Between embedding formulas in the cels and writing VB scripts, I feel unlimited in what I...

    I agree with you're analysis, Nate. There is undeniable true in every point you made. If I had to list only one reason the movie biz is failing, I would say that EVERYBODY has forgotten how to tell a story. From the lowest Indie to the biggest budget production on the block. Nobody seems to...

    Politics is only the final nail in the movie industry's coffin. There are a few others holding that lid down. Can you guess what they are?

    This song kills me everything I hear it, and I've heard it a lot. The changing of sunlight to moonlight Reflections of my life Oh, how they fill my eyes The greetings of people in trouble Reflections of my life Oh, how they fill my eyes Oh, my sorrows Sad tomorrows Take me back to my own...

    series Better Call Saul (final season)

    Last night was episode 6. A major yawner in my opinion. So far I am very disappointed in the way season 6 - the final season - is going. Everything is progressing at a snails pace. Reading what others are saying on Youtube, I can see that there is a general consensus that the show is...

    Just another audio nerd!

    Hi, Sean. Sound is the most elusive part of film making for me. I'll be sure to look for you when I can't figure out why my sound sometimes becomes muddy. I'm new here myself, so from one new comer to another, welcome :wait:

    series Better Call Saul (final season)

    To be honest, I want Kim's departure to be so heartbreaking, so unbelievable that I will cry until I need an IV drip to keep from dehydrating. That's how much I like Kim. If she doesn't stay with Saul, to whom she is married, there had better be the most gut wrenching good bye scene ever...

    series Better Call Saul (final season)

    I don't think Kim will get greased. She will either move on, or she will still be with Saul during BB but just isn't a part of the show. Some people think Lalo will end up as filler in a concrete wall of Gus's meth lab. I could see that happening. I was watching ScarFace (the Brian De Palma...

    Hello all

    I think I will change my name as soon as I am able.:grumpy: .. and who thinks of these strange words anyway? When I came up with the screen name , I was simply making an amalgam of my high school teacher's name and pumpkin.
