    Failure at writing a screenplay, whats the reason?

    It's all about discipline. I grew up romanticizing writers and thinking how glamorous it must be to be able to just write all day. And constantly saying "I want to be a writer." But never putting in the work. It's work. There's no getting around that. And work is sometimes painful and dull as...

    watch Suite: Billy Gutz

    Here's an essay movie which is also a good example of how even amidst catastrophic equipment failure, art can still be made. I sold this movie for $400 to a literary journal last year, and it was distributed in their annual DVD issue to over 3,500 subscribers. Please enjoy SUITE: Billy Gutz...

    AIRBNB for locations?

    Airbnb is strictly residences, right? Residences aren't usually that difficult to acquire for location shooting, I wouldn't think. Even if your network of family and associates is pretty small usually someone has a residence you could beg to borrow for your movie. I imagine if you found a...

    Turn on closed-captioning and learn about sound design

    Magic Bullet crashing Vegas Pro 9

    Thanks. Yeah, it seemed to work on test projects where I only had one short clip in the editor but now that I have the workings of an entire short, it crashes every time. Might have to render each scene or just grade conventionally with the on-board Sony tools. Dang! I was looking forward to...

    Magic Bullet crashing Vegas Pro 9

    Anyone here experience this? I've seen a whole bunch of answers that aren't working for me. I'll add Magic Bullet to the effects chain of a clip and when I go to edit the settings it'll either say "Can't find a usable frame to open the editing window" or it will start to open, hang up, and...

    set your Tascam (or Zoom) to stun!

    Camera for a documentary on a budget

    What do you have in terms of sound recording equipment? Might be wise to stick with the 7D and invest in audio if you have none.
