    Crowdfunding Update

    Well, the first week was atrocious. Going to revamp the video, restate an updated appeal, an incorporate more advice from IT members. Hopefully, it's not too late. 3 weeks to go and I won't give up until I've tried everything. We've had some direct funding which will make it possible to make a...

    Indie Press Release - I did it anyway :)

    With funding not exactly secured yet, I sent out a press release saying that the film is being made. It will be, to some degree and that considering companies provide press releases only to go belly up a short time later. We will actually follow through with a diminished plan if necessary...

    Guess The Background

    I'm leaning toward ET with a tumor, but there are other possibilities. Yes, this is one of mine so we are not picking on a colleague. What happened? Actor was late and I threw everything back up deciding it looked about the same as before. It didn't. What's your guess as to what the background...

    Cast and Crew BBQ

    Had my first cast and crew barbeque for a film that is not yet cast and has no crew today. It worked out great! I invited the most talented local people, mostly a wish list, and received so many verbal commitments I regret not writing them all down. There were even people doing scenes as I...

    SD Card Festival Submissions

    What are people doing to skirt/avoid the 4GB file size limitation on SD cards formatted in FAT32? I recently had to downres an 8 minute short to 720P and encode to prores LT to get it under the limit. I worked and looked acceptable, but there has to be a better way. Not knowing what the...

    This is a bit dated, but OUTSTANDING, and holds through to today.

    Finally, Done Deal

    Here's the plan - with all the hoopla about FCP 10 and time passing without fixes, I think I'll become, or attempt to become, proficient with Avid. I downloaded Media Composer 5.5 free trial and it doesn't look impossible. I know my way around Premiere to a relative extent and I think this will...

    Real Housewives of South Boston

    watch Rose Of A Different Color

    It's in there! Symbolism, love, Silent movie telegraphing, - It's like a foreign short where you find yourself asking "What the hell was that all about?"

    Lighting Question

    Maybe I just noticed or maybe it's the new rage, but I've seen a lot of actors with dilated pupils in obviously professionally lit productions. Does anybody know how they are pulling this off?

    Ya' Think?

    Some things seem like someone thought about it. The industry standard since the 1950's (Academy) in cinema is the 1.85:1 aspect ratio. da Vinci's The Last Supper has an aspect ratio of 1.93:1. This is creepy close if you do the math compared to all the other aspect ratios, nothing comes close...

    Stupid thinds we do

    I'll start because this is stupid. While talking with my hands today, I flung a $200 77mm B+W variable neutral density filter across the room. Normally, ceramic tile floors are very forgiving, and thankfully it didn't break into a thousand pieces. It only cracked the glass up the middle. Tag...

    Brothers! We wake in the morn...

    Okay brothers and sisters -I am heading into battle (no,ooooo) and I seek your advice. Music video completely nuts about outstanding images and script, or hire a producer to take the load off nuts and bolts and let me worry about the rest? I'm leaning producer at my rate. Nothing. Thoughts?

    John Waters And Disney?

    Ursula the sea witch from "The Little Mermaid" was based on the actor/drag queen Divine. We can see the resemblance! Check it out for a laugh!
