    watch Sargento's Saddle

    Well, here it is. For better or for worse, my first project. My son was our team leader and executive producer. I was his "line producer" for the project. He also came up with the story and wrote the first script (then two other guys rewrote that...

    Reputable (online) Rental Companies

    Quick question... are there any rental places online that are shady and need to be avoided? Do any have a particularly solid reputation. Not just a glass place, but if I wanted to get maybe a slider, grids, and a camera. Is ATS, Aperturent,, or Trew any good?

    Seeking Advice. First Project. 48hr-film contest.

    This year I wanted to join a team in a 48hr film project competition, and the nearest one to me is about two hours from where I live. It starts July 25th. Then my 12 year old son found out about it and wanted to have a major role in doing one. I have always wanted to produce something that I...

    What Should I Watch Next

    I liked Primer, Man From Earth, Timecrimes, Memento, and Moon. Are there other moderately budgeted indie-type movies I might enjoy, that have a similar sci-fi bent or films that tell the tale in an usual way?

    What Did I Do Wrong Here?

    I had some P2HD footage I was editing, and when I exported it out of premiere, it looks like this (ignore the black at the beginning, it's the weird interlacing-looking edge-line things that have me weeping here).

    Rosco #2210 M20 Plug?

    Someday. Someday I will be able to give back to this fine forum and help others with knowledge and experience. But alas, today is not that day. Today I opened a package that contained (non-returnable) ebay items: a junior2k, a baby650, and a mini200 mole-richardson fresnel. I unwrapped the...
