Re: act, but dont act like your acting

It's not all verbal, you have to think outside the box and find ways to put the actor(s) in a similar situation. For example, say your character is annoyed in a scene and you know your actor can't stand the sound of a clicking pen. Keep clicking the pen up until calling "action" to allow them to tap...

My Filmmaking Blog

Hey everyone,

I have a blog for all my filmmaking adventures. Right now I'm in the middle of pre-production for a short film I'll be shooting on the Red One in August and writing stages for my first feature film.

Have a look.

That is some awesome stuff! What are you attaching that Redrock too? It looks just like a simple consumer camera.

The only thing you're going to get today that isn't miniDV and you can actually own is a really old 8mm camera (with expensive film and harder to find), a poor quality Hi8 off ebay, or a high-end HD camera that uses a P2 card. Under your circumstances, I'd go with miniDV, but I'd look for something ...

I think a lot of us here are still trying to develop their style. At least I am for one. Each new short I make, I am always doing at least some-thing differently.

I still like dolly shots though.

It does take some decent low-light images, but that was with the f-stop wide open pretty much the whole time. It's obviously better though to light as much as you can when making a movie. This was just a bored evening project though and I can't really light an entire city. I've always had an interes...

City Lights -- New Short Film

So last night I was planning on doing ADR with an actor in What's Wrong With You?! but he never showed up. I checked out some equipment (like a DVX and boom mic) so we could do it, but since he never showed I didn't want to put it to waste. The result: My friend and I on a night drive through downto...

Clarence is about spot on. It was filmed in 16:9 letterbox and then I set my editing timeline to 24p widescreen which then stretched the video preview out (not the video) and gave me my footage completely surrounded in black on all 4 sides. So I cropped out the upper and lower black bars and in doin...

RE: sundance short film

As long as you have enough footage to where the judges can view the film and piece together what is going on you should be fine. A lot of films people send to Sundance are sent as rough cuts and then they work on a final cut. Sometimes people don't get the final exhibition copy finished with editing...

That really did look fantastic, if I had to give you any suggestion it would probably just be considering making it a full moon to make it just a tad more believable in the brightness. Great job though, really schweet!

I have had that comment before (in general, not on this).
