    Can I claim a cinematography credit?

    My DOP has signed the DOP contract and I am the director, however 80% of all shots and lighting were my decision. He helped assist lighting and shot a lot on B-cam but the 'look' of the film is mine therefore I feel like I should claim credit for it with him. So both of us get Cinematography...

    Can low production budget effect a deal?

    Just a bit worried at the moment. We have a couple of interested parties in our film but they do not know what the budget was - when my producer asked one how much they think, he estimated 3million. The truth is it was a no-budget production made for under 25k. When they find this out could it...

    Talks with a distributor.

    Hi, A smallish distributor wants to hold an exhibit for our film, all expenses paid, in front of cinema screen representatives (to see how many screens he can get our film in), however he gave us the impression that he doesn't want to sign a deal until the outcome of this screen-er. My...

    Anyone know the film??

    I saw a western years back on TV and totally forgot the name and when I try and explain it nobody I know has seen or heard of it. It's so illusive I'm starting to think I dreamt it. It's about a retired gunslinger who lives a quiet life as a blacksmith (or some profession of the like) until he...

    Getting rid of interlacing lines

    I accidentally shot a scene in 1080i and it looks awful but I cannot re-shoot. When I render the footage it has all sorts of lines that I cannot seem to be rid of, no matter what render setting I try. Also, this is a different issue but when framing an active mobile phone screen there are...

    Using clips of other films in my film...

    I have an idea to have a character watching 'White Heat' on his sitting room TV with James Cagney delivering the famous line "Top of the world, ma!". Do I need clearance for this and if so how can I go about getting it? My character Ad libbed the line later in the movie; is this also allowed as...

    Paying a sound guy for half a day??

    We have a shoot soon that requires only one scene for a three hour shoot, so this is under half a day but he still wants his full days rate, spouting something about same price for renting equipment. Is this common or should we pay him half the rate?

    Mixiung 25i and 24p

    I accidentally recorded 1080i on my gh2 which shows up as 25fps interlaced on my comp. Not an expert in this field but can I still use with the rest of my 24p footage in editing or do I need to convert todays footage or something?

    Weird strobing effect...

    I recorded a scene on GH2 and accidently had the shutter speed set at 60 which caused these weird horizontal effect, I'm sure you know what I mean, I've seen it on many dslr. I just want to know if there's any post production method to get rid of it? The scene is really well acted and would be a...

    Replacing an actor during a shoot.

    We are four days into shooting and are unhappy with the performance of a lead role. On top of that we are not too keen on him as a person so we are considering dropping him. I can save his acting with clever editing but is it not worth just re shooting his scenes and could I still use his OTS...

    Best GH2 patches for filmmaking?

    There are so many out there I just don't know where to begin. Obviously it is for narrative story-telling so 24p is what I mainly use but 60p would be used on occational slo-mo too. Plus Ex Tele mode should be working too. I have a 64gb 95mbps SD. What I really want is one that plays back on...

    Sound recordist working on multiple jobs??

    Hi, my sound recordist contacted my after I sent him the call sheets and he says that my schedule is too sporadic for his schedule to work on other jobs. I asked about the 'other jobs' and he told me that he always works on about three projects at one time. This to me sounds dangerous an I...
