  1. Anybody care to help me name a character?

    Hugh. Hugh Jass.
  2. Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

    Acting must be a perishable skill. And I hope Abrams never ever attempts to put Ridley into a slave costume.
  4. Happy New Year, ITers!

  5. > Screenplay Fodder: News That Should Inspire!

    Whup... Hold up. No happy ending, after all.
  6. How to make a $1,000 Feature Film with Mark Duplass

    It's good to see you, too, Mara. ;)
  7. How to make a $1,000 Feature Film with Mark Duplass

    Make a feature length film for $1k? Not a prob. Anyone can edit together 120mins of literally "anything" and will have "made" a film for only your indirect cost, the equipment you have already in hand. Wanna blow $1k on direct costs? Easy peasy. It's akin to saying "I can buy a riding lawn...
  8. Websites for Screenwriting? But be wary. It's not a sweet little community workshop like IT is. It's more of a alley fight, so ghost a while before stepping in the ring. You can learn a lot. And "Hi", Anthony. :)
  9. movies What's the last film you watched? And rate it!

    The Conjuring - 6/10 Didn't find it great the first go-round: Watched it again just before watching its sequel and still don't find it all that interesting. I remain completely impressed with the rate of return...
  10. Dealing With Criticism of Your Work

    Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Nothing is liked by everyone, someone's always bitching about something. The day one Presidential candidate wins automagically EVERYONE that didn't vote for him/her hates his/her guts - and then those that did start hating them when they fail to deliver to...

    Don't fall into the "gear box", you will not be able to tech your way out of a lousy film. Read this: Watch this: Note #42
  12. where/how to get money and professional support?

    Gopherit. ;)
  13. How far is it worth driving for auditions, when...?

    8 miles, and not a inch further.
  14. where/how to get money and professional support?

    Professional support comes from the friends you have and the contacts you make. You're making contacts here right now. Financial support comes from your own bank account, mom's bank account, money you can mooch off your friends, and the Fictional Filmmakers Bureau of Finance, which is of course...

    Horns - 5/10 Interesting idea with unrealized potential in execution. Radcliffe was clearly the main draw and only "paid" actor amid a dozen buck-fifty cast members, still missable. Pretty sure the production budget was considerably above the box-office take, but everyone seems mum about the...
  16. Western synopsis wanted!

    Yup. Which I took seriously, so I asked about his resources so that we wouldn't be wasting time thinking up of stuff with no way for him to shoot: Reply: And eventually we get this: So, yeah. OP migrated from SHOOTING (but doesn't wanna think about problems) to WRITING a spag.western. If he...
  17. Western synopsis wanted! So, you're just writing fan fiction in screenplay format? No intention to direct or produce? No intention sell? You just wanna write a spaghetti western?
  18. watch Please Honest and Brutal opinion

    You have a lot of different moving parts going on here. The two year old videos linked are poorly shot, composed, and edited with spotty audio. Learn and practice some basic camera shots for a conversation and practice them. No more 1970s zooming. No more 'Star Wars' wipes. No more expecting a...
  19. watch The Worst Short Film You Will See This Year

    Recording audio in a typical office environment is going to be a hassle of some sort. Deal. But not a big hassle. In a typical office environment there's a lot of 90&180° flat reflective surfaces + it's certainly not a dedicated space for recording dialog audio for filmmaking + you're just one...
