    Call for ideas : how to dispose of a corpse

    Hi everyone, I made a short last year and i thought it was gonna be a one-shot. I did it as a promo film for the movie-club I was directing. There was these 3 guys talking about disgustingly funny sexual stuff and then a guy comes along to present the video club to them and one of them kills...

    Budgeting for Sound

    Hey guys, I've had a short movie idea stuck in my head for a few days and I figured I might as well try to do it. I'm in the process of writing the script but I'm also thinking about the technical departement. Since I really believe in this one, I'm prepared to throw in all the money I have put...

    Syncing Workflow

    Okay, it's something that I never understood and that gives me serious itching when I read articles about. I know the real way to do it is to use Timecode. As Guerilla filmmakers we don't have that so moving on. The way I usually do it is to clap using hands or slate. Then I drag every...

    Are screenwriting "rules" harming House of Cards?

    I've started the show a few days ago and I've been into it since the pilot. Which is really odd. Usually, good series need some time to build up on you and get you hooked, like Mad Men, Rome and many other classics. But HoC gets you from the first episod. Now, if you haven't watched the...

    Opinion on my first short film festival

    Hi, i'm currently attending a small short film Festival in Norway. I just missed the first day and we closed today Day 3 of screenings. I can't help but notice how most of the films fall within the same "genre". i'm talking about this "metaphorical" kind of movie where there is no real...

    What's up with the overexposed stuff Quentin ?

    I've seen Django and I felt like every fucking scene had way too much elements that were overexposed. Books, guns, skies and other things I don't remember, there just was too many of them that it left me wondering if it was intentional. Last I heard, QT shoots on film which is supposed to have...

    Hi everyone, I'm planning a shoot next week. The scene is happening in the morning, in a hallway with some sunlight getting in through a big big window on one end. But it just won't be enough for the entire hallway and the scene really needs th entire lengh of it. I can get as much 1kW...

    Voice Over movies

    Hi everyone, I'm looking for movies with a lot of voice over, with a main character telling his story, even in a lyric way. I'm thinking things like Lord of War, or even Into the Wild although it's often poems. Short films would also work great. The more powerful the narration, the more I'm...

    I hate sound

    I shot a little parody of an italian TV ad and I'm now editing the thing. I just hate sound. I just can't begin to understand how it should be done. I would kill to have the opportunity to sit next to someone who knows what he's doing while editing his short. What I learned was that I should...

    Adding television reflection

    Hello i'm shooting a scene that involves a couple watching TV. To emulate the reflection of the screen on theur face, I know of a trick that consists in moving a white paper in front of the fill light (with a CTB) and that would do it. I'm wondering if there is another way to do it completely...

    Windscreen for Rode VideoMic

    I'm so angry at myself right now. I bought the official Rode Windscreen because I planned to pick up some outdoor audio and did something I never do. I bought without checking comparisons and tests... This thing sucks. I should have researched it just a little bit...
