    GRIDLOCK -- Intro, 6 pages

    Hey guys, The intro to a new short I'm hoping to film in Santa Barbara, CA in the next few weeks. I'm mostly wondering if the characters and their banter (and eventually the inciting incident to the plot) keeps you interested. Let me know what you think, and if these guys are likeable or just...

    watch East Africa Adventure Filmmaking

    Hey guys, just thought I'd post two of the small vignettes I put together for the German missionary organization I work for in East Africa. I shot this in different locations throughout Kenya, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and South Sudan -- and while my primary objective was to...

    How much money should I ask for?

    After doing 3 music videos, 1 feature, 1 short film, and just now finishing a documentary (all "company work" in Africa with real budgets) for free, I'm finally being offered a paying gig. A friend-of-a-friend is offering me some kind of money to make a bunch of training videos for several...

    Noise Reduction?

    Hey all, I'm editing a documentary at the moment, using separately-recorded audio for a lot of interviews. I recorded a TON of beautiful audio "coverage" from many locations (ambient sound, birds, footsteps, foley, etc.) but I'm finding it difficult to take advantage of all that work because...

    The Machine - Needs Oiling?

    A fairly short script designed to be acted and shot by one person (me, presumably), and therefore relying heavily on acting and storyline. I wanted the audience to feel like they are viewing different pieces of a puzzle coming together before them; finally ending up with the full storyline in...

    Sony Z7?

    Today, I'm going out with a Nairobi rap artist who is co-financing my upcoming shoot, "Pockets," to look at higher-end camera rentals to use for the music video I'm shooting for him this week. I'm also considering finding a higher-quality setup for my own project, but I'd like to experiment with...

    Mic Placement Question?

    Hey guys, I'm going to be shooting my short film, "Pockets," here in Nairobi in a couple days. In the last few days, I've been traveling around rural Kenya doing an Adventure-Filmmaking project and audio has been a big part of that. My PA and I have been learning a lot about getting ambient...

    Is renting RED worth it?

    So yesterday, I was sitting in my little missionary compound in Nairobi, Kenya, and out of nowhere, a sweet film crew comes along with a low-budget (but still frickin' sweet) RED camera setup. There was some Norwegian skateboard champion who came to our compound because we've apparently got the...

    First few pages... Compelling or Crap?

    Decided to leave my other spec script alone for the moment (too vast in scale, shooting locations won't be available to me until August) and work on another idea I had about pickpockets/street boys living on the streets of Nairobi. I know quite a few guys who used to be pickpockets for a number...

    SPIN - First Draft

    My first draft for a somewhat labyrinthine short film based on some of the stories I've heard while working in Southern Sudan. I hopefully plan to shoot this some day, whenever I have a budget and a crew. I'd really love comments and criticisms, as I'd love to get better at the art of...

    Getting Ready for Some Adventure Filmmaking

    Hey guys, I have been living in Kenya and Sudan the last couple months as a missionary, and in December I will have the opportunity to do something really unique. I will be shooting a drama/musical in a village in Southern Sudan (completely undeveloped, inaccessible area), editing it there on...

    Guerilla Shooting in Nairobi

    Hi, indietalk! This is my first post, but I've hovered around for a few days. So I moved from the L.A.-area to Nairobi, Kenya a few months ago for a missionary job. I'm planning on shooting a feature in the area in December 2010, and have already acquired excited actors (who will work for...
