  1. off-topic Are you ashamed of it? I wanna see it.

    I actually never knew of this. Sounds awesome though. In film, the failures can be as fun as the successes!
  2. off-topic Are you ashamed of it? I wanna see it.

    It's a shame they blocked the video "Steven Segal Simulator" There was this fantastic shot where he kicked a door open, and it swung back and hit him in the face.
  3. off-topic Are you ashamed of it? I wanna see it.

    I actually still like the music I wrote for the Half Life episode. I agree thought that Orange Sunshine was way too long.
  4. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    I agree that this site is great the way it is. To me the instant gratification thing seems pointless. If I need energy, sure , I could smoke crack, and that would give me short fleeting bursts of unsustainable energy, but I don't do that. I eat a steak, and it's better on every front. Film...
  5. misc Do most new filmmakers start out too proud?

    I was a tech CEO and an armature filmmaker. So I was fortunate enough to meet an extensive line of narcissists. There was this guy that kept showing up in the bathroom mirror that looked like he had a real attitude, lol. I got it under control over the years, and my advice to younger...

    "faster than my brain can think" I think I've got my next album title!
  7. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    This... Yes,... I think we cracked the code. I'd like to see those other sites compete with this level of flair!
  8. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    You guys are missing the obvious answer, we just need to cover the entire site with as many flashing and blinking lights as possible, like the Vegas strip, I mean, that's been popular and gains a lot of attention. Or maybe a celebrity front person with a trendy hat and no discernable talent...
  9. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    I should mention that it might not be the worlds worst idea for indietalk to have it's own live chat area. I think people might like that.
  10. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    well, on a certain level, I think looking for a pat on the back or a thumbs up as a filmmaker is like going to the gym and lifting a styrofoam cup. I mean, I can't speak for others, but the kind of win I'm looking for can't be reached with that kind of easy dopamine goal. I would think many...
  11. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    I think so, at about 200 per hour, I just don't really understand why. I get that not everyone loves this format, but even a tenth of a percent of filmmakers should be way more than this. It's just puzzling. The forum format does still have some advantages over other formats.
  12. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    Maybe I don't understand, my google search led me straight here???
  13. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    And Marvel movies are a far more advanced version of comic books, But I never pick up a comic book and think, oh, there's only 3 people worldwide reading one of these right now.
  14. directors Who is the best director of all time?

    Actually, I have to agree with John Ford. That guy knew how to be incredible and invisible at the same time. He was so great in that he never got in the way of his own film. Contrast that with Zach Snyder, and maybe my meaning will be more clear.
  15. off-topic How do we get more people to come to Indietalk?

    I think that's a legitimate response. I'm just fishing for a way to improve new people's experience here. I try to say hello to every newcomer, and keep a large ratio of my posts from turning into insane rants, with mediocre success. I just want to build enthusiasm for this place, because I...

    We just brought the Save Point Discord server online. It's a room where people involved or interested in the project can gather and chat. Anyone is welcome to join, results may vary! There are just a few people in there now, but we are expecting a lot more to show up in the coming months. Be...
  17. social-media Is social media ruining movies?

    I've worked with a lot of people on a lot of projects, but I've noticed a trend in the last decade coinciding with the rise of the almighty Facebook echochamber algorithm. a decade ago pretty much every project I worked on was different, a sci fi movie, a thriller, a mystery, whatever. In the...
  18. locations The lost art of Matte Painting

    I've seen a lot of threads about greenscreen work, but it occurs to me that I've never seen a thread where people discuss Matte Painting. I was watching Loki the other day and was really impressed by how much the background art contributed to creating the film's world. I actually work a lot on...
  19. directors Who is the best director of all time?

    I know, it's a ridiculous question, everyone already knows Michael Bay is the greatest director of all time. He practically invented the idea of constantly recycling banal tropes. An influential genius who showed the world that budget can entirely replace creativity!
  20. STUCK, an anamorphic short film about quarantine

    Great work, I liked a lot of the same things mentioned above, but have to give you extra props for your thumbnail. Nobody ever talks about packaging, but I think a great cover or thumbnail can actually go a long way towards getting people into the world of your film. I think I percieved your...
