    watch Mass Awakening Documentary Intro (Mark III)

    Thanks pal... Yes, that's the key, right? I made it miles better in 6 weeks, so think what I could do in 6 months. I took on board the points you made in a PM a while ago, and came up with a cut that gets right to the point. You were right, it was too long. You are hereby invited to the...

    BTW, thanks for nothing, asshats. No matter how amateurish it is now, do you really mean to say you can't see the value in a movie that showcases water, food and energy technology for a better future? I have seen you cream yourselves over the lamest, most trivial stuff in here. A one minute...

    The Secret to Crowd Funding

    :woohoo: I love the guy. He has a great song on the kids soundtrack. I like his work with Jad Fair. Speeding Motorcycle with Yo La Tengo is a classic. Thanks for the ideas, TOF. Having a cost breakdown is vital. I'm surprised so many people fumble that question. I could tell people where I'd...

    This is really cool...

    When I start grooving to one song it loads up another... It's a real head screw Alcove. I feel nauseous. EDIT: I've got used to it now. i don't listen to much pop music but at least half these songs are classics. It makes you realise how many amazing songs are out there.

    Crowd Funding ?? How much do you need to make a feature ??

    With backup budgets, I think the big money types would be impressed that you had a solid business head, and weren't just trying to get big money for the hell of it. One cool thing: I live in Bali / Indonesia. Minimum wage is 120 bucks a month. I pay more: 10 bucks for a six hour day to my...

    Hmmm Mirror. I've never used that. I don't have After Effects either...

    Crowd Funding ?? How much do you need to make a feature ??

    Multi-level budgeting is a great idea. I was thinking of that myself... It shows pragmatism + vision at the same time. I'd probably budget at 1k, 3k, 5k and 10k at my level. I don't know how common this is in the industry.

    BTW I'm going to release the whole thing for free on a number of alternative/conspiracy boards. That should improve it's chances. Here's an essay that serves as a guide to what the film's about. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread500968/pg1 It got 100,000 views and a great response on...

    I thought the first one was a Ram's head. But yes, it looks good... Can you tell us how you did it, or is it a classified technique?

    watch Mass Awakening Documentary Intro (Mark III)

    Please watch in 480 if you can. I'm still having some quality issues so please bear with blockiness. I'm going to get hold of sorenson squeeze and see if that improves it some. Second, I'll make some of the clips smaller to improve quality. The fade to blacks are still blocky on YT. So I'm...

    Free Laugh Tracks

    Freesound definitely has at least three laugh samples, one of them 30 seconds or so. I used them in a vid that I will post shortly. I'm not sure if the quality would be acceptable to you or not.

    Crowd Funding ?? How much do you need to make a feature ??

    I reckon you have a good attitude Indiebudget. That counts for a lot. Sure, being broke would slow you down to a crawl, but there are tons of options we have that filmmakers 10 or even 5 years ago didn't have. - With this forum, and the net in general, you could get location shots and exteriors...

    Some Ogg files won't convert. Why?

    I think there was some issue with HB. Either it wouldn't batch convert or ogg wasn't supported. I can't be sure though. Super's probably better.

    PAL or NTSC for Youtube uploads. Do you care?

    It's a bit of a mishmash of tons of different files, from DVX footage to ripped youtube (with permission) to a bunch of OGGs. I did it in NTSC this afternoon. I can't see much difference. It could be better even. To my eye, Handbrake seems to be handling the fade to blacks better than with PAL...

    PAL or NTSC for Youtube uploads. Do you care?

    I googled this a bit and found no conclusive answers. I can export either, and YT accepts both. NTSC is US standard but I will send it to people in a few different continents. Do you have a preference? PAL is better quality on paper but I just don't know.

    Anyone here gone and made a full out feature on the T2i or 7D?

    It looks tough, but not impossible. I can see how it'd slow you down. Maybe you could design shots that didn't need too much focus pulling.... make yourself a homemade matte box...

    Any good freeware editing software for the Mac?

    Yeah but have you noticed the opening fire-up chord is the same as the one from 'Live and Let Die' ? I get that song in my head every time I boot up. You might have a point, but then there's this: http://www.freemacware.com/ Thanks. I was looking for recommendations afore I started trawling.

    This is what's putting me off buying one at present. I can stretch to 2 grand, but not 3.
