  1. Forum etiquette

    Kind of a forum etiquette question. I've been non-existent on the boards for about 18 months or so. Would it be bad form to bump one or more of my films in the screening room to kind of re-introduce myself?
  2. watch The Kohlman Files

    OK, full on web release coming this weekend. I have changed jobs AND moved in the past six weeks and I've been too busy to really try and pitch this thing and I'm tired of sitting on it, so I'm just going to release it on the web and see what happens. If it's well received we'll try to make the...
  3. The Indie Gathering

    The film I finished about this time last year, 109, took 2nd place (first loser, heh) in the pre-festival judging in the Horror-Comedy category at this festival. It's in Hudson Ohio (outside Cleveland) and this is their 13th year. They are screening it and I plan on attending, so if anybody is...
  4. Editing Timeline best practices

    OK, so I made the call that I'm going to edit The Kohlman Files myself. Always been a proponent of an outside editor, but I have such a strong vision of what I want for this I'm going to cut out the middle man. I am going to use someone else for VFX, Titles and Color Correction. The decisions of...
  5. The Canon 4K DSLR is here

    It's a modified 1DX. 4K at 24fps (8 bit 4:2:2) and 1080P at 24, 25, 30, and 60 fps. http://usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon?pageKeyCode=pressreldetail&docId=0901e02480533ee2 Suggested retail is $15K. Out of my "buy it" range for sure, but hopefully it might become available as a rental for in...
  6. watch Gonzo's 2011 film 109

    I may pull this back down in a week or so, but at least for now here it is http://vimeo.com/38129130 Shot in two days for about $3000 in May of 2011 on a 5Dmk2 with Pentax Super Takumar lenses. It's about 12 minutes.
  7. watch Pitch/Teaser: The Kohlman Files

    OK, here it is. Still password protected until we launch either tonight or tomorrow. Not 100% happy with the pitch portion (which is followed by the teaser so hang in there). It's pretty damn tough to do a long spiel like that in one take, but reasonably happy with how that portion turned out...
  8. Hulk say 3 Act Structure Dumb

    Didn't see this posted. Pretty damn funny AND he makes a lot of good points. http://filmcrithulk.wordpress.com/2011/07/07/hulk-presents-the-myth-of-3-act-structure/
  9. I was just contacted by an Agency

    I'm sure nothing will come of it, but I was contacted by a company in LA that does management and production. They wanted to schedule a conference call with me. The gist was they are "always looking for new talent" and had seen the Island. They appear to be small, but also appear to be legit. I...
  10. Production Diary: The Kohlman Files

    I'm sure I've referred to it multiple times, but I've been in pre-production off and on for a couple of months (as time allowed around day job, a commercial, and a music video shoot) on a horror web series. The script (which is linked in the Premiere member area) has gone through 3 revisions...
  11. 24P Judder

    This was posted elsewhere on the web, thought I'd repost here. Making me consider shooting 29.97. I have already decided to on future TV commercial projects anyway to avoid having to do the pull down in post, but almost making me consider doing it on narrative stufff. With the 5D sensor I think...
  12. Headed back to Dam Short

    Got my first acceptance for 109. I'd been sweating it after the first three entries came back No (though one was the expected no from Slamdance). Dam Short is a great festival. The Island played there as well. Boulder City Nevada (where Hoover Dam is) about a half hour out of Vegas. They treat...
  13. Let's talk about a web series

    I am in the EARLY pre-production stages of a dramatic (horror/Lovecraft) web series. I finished the script for the pilot a couple of days ago. My main question at this stage is how do I monetize it? Put it on youtube and beg people to click through the ads so i actually make something? Put it...
  14. Who has done Comcast cable commercials?

    OK, wrapping up this cable commercial I shot and have some post questions. First, yes, I'm trying to get a contact number for the local comcast spotlight tech guys, but so far no luck. I do have their tech specs with the number of seconds of bars an tone, slate, etc... In Nashville it says...
  15. 5D or 7D on Walking Dead last night

    Flashed by too quick to see which model it was, but on the after show last night they showed them using a rig that consisted of a bar/extension mounted to the bottom of a gun. It extended out 3 or 4 feet and mounted on top of it was either a 7D or a 5D. It was slightly off center and pointed at...
  16. watch Rough cut commercial

    Close to final edit (last second or so of band at end to be replaced by an exterior of the bar), but color correction not final (just threw my generic S curve on it). Also, this is raw camera sound. It will actually all (100% ) be replaced by foley. There is also a voice over we're recording...
  17. Just filed my first copyright infringement notice on youtube

    I stumbled across a situation where someone had taken an excerpt from my first film Beyond the Wall of Sleep (a section containing both Lloyd Kaufman and nudity oddly enough) and re-posted it on youtube. It had about 700 views. If they had bothered to credit Gonzo Entertainment or included the...
  18. A glimmer of good news for DVD

    From a distributors point of view (which where I work my day job) this is at least a tiny bit of sunshine. Report: Studio to expand delay on Netflix, Redbox By Andrew Wallenstein Warner Bros. is ending its exclusive day-and-date arrangement to provide films to Blockbuster, which didn't have...
  19. The Dark Side

    So I did my first event shoot a couple weeks ago (a Hair Stylist conference), I have my first music video shoot this weekend, and we just started pre-production on our first cable TV commercial gig. Some thoughts... Event work sucks big time. I hated it (at least it wasn't a wedding). Even...
  20. Music from our films

    Not sure this was the appropriate forum, but I've gotten most of non-incidental music from the three films posted online, so I thought I'd share them. All these songs recorded by us using local musicians from the Nashville area. That's me singing a couple of them. "My Family" Closing credits...
