  4. Amazing short film I came across

    Saw this a few days ago. Thought I'd share it with people who might care. It is based off a Video game called "Ghost Recon" (which was actually a pretty good game) Great action, great cinematography and effects. I think it's worth a watch.

  9. Act of Valor

    Just saw a trailer of this on youtube. I found out (by the filmriot guys) that most if not all of the movie is shot on Canon DSLRs. And looking at the trailer, I would have thought it was shot on something much more expensive. Pretty interesting eh? Trailer...

  11. Greatest Advancement in Communications and Information Technology?

    What do you think is the greatest advancement in the information and communications technology industry over the last 10 years? This may sound like an essay topic, and that's because it is. Its for a scholarship and I can't think of something that's actually a great advancement yet not super...
  12. Need help with tripod shopping

    I'm looking for a tripod, and have this one in mind. I haven't filmed anything with it, but I have messed around with its adjustments. Its very sturdy (as far as I can tell), and can reach a height of 71.5" (when the pipe...

  14. Do you guys have a second job?

    I'm sure at least some of you are very established filmmakers and making movies is your full time career. But for the rest, I'm guessing making movies doesn't provide a stable enough income right? So do you guys have second jobs? Or is filmmaking your second job? I'm still very young and just...
  15. New Macbook Pros are here! They seem pretty cool, though a bit overpriced as usual. I am slightly disappointed at the lack of a standard SSD, and why exactly is the 15" only 2.0 ghz? The old version cam standard at 2.4.. The new Thunderbolt port and Sandy Bridge chip are good stuff...
  16. Story from a novel?

    Hi, I was reading a fictional novel and in the story, the protagonist finds a news article under his mattress. The story that was in that news article seems like a great idea for a short film. I'm just wondering if I can use that story without special permission. I'm assuming the news...

    Hey guys, I am in the market for a nice pair of over-ear headphones for listening to music and editing. I will not use this for sound monitoring, but for editing sound, syncing, and just listening to videos.) My budget is anything under $300. I was looking into the Beats Studio headphones but...
  18. Canon XA10 vs Canon HF S21

    I made a topic a little while back asking if the HFS21 was a good choice. It seemed like it was, though now upgraded versions of those cameras have come out. I was looking at the specs of different cameras and came down to the two in the topic title. I just need someone to do a comparison of...
  19. Ideas for production company name?

    I don't have a production company; whatever short films I end up making in the near future, it'll probably be just me doing the work, with a friends as actors/crew. However I do see a lot of amateur filmmakers who use an original name. I want to have an intro with a decent name I'll use for my...

    I was watching The Other Guys a couple weeks ago and a particular scene stuck with me. I just thought it looked like a cool effect and I'm wondering how its done? Could someone explain the technique to me? Thanks. :)
