If you want to go cheap (and you're filming indoors) - just use some chinese laterines.

Oh yeah, the movie is going to look very good :) Sorry I don't have any plans (since I didn't use any) but it's just built like any other jib basically - so it should be pretty simply to figure out. The way the jib was before I modified it it was able to come apart - but now that I've added the cont...

I've made quite a few modifications to it since I last used it and it seems to work pretty damn good. Anyways, tell me what you guys think of the vid.

Just got Macromedia Studio 8, and I'm thinking of starting my own website. Anybody have any suggestions who I should go to for web-hosting? Or if there's a review site of the top web-space providers - or anything that can help me sort out the million providers out there? I need a service that provid...

RE: Removing voice from music?

You can do it in Adobe Audition, it's real simply too - just "one click" sort of thing. I've removed singing from music before using it and the result weren't all that bad. I don't know of anyway to do it in Premiere (or any other edit program for that matter).

I wouldn't bother getting ANY sort of HD (or) HDV camera at this point since it is not "True" HD and i...

What should I get: Canon XL1 or GL2 ?

Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting a new camera some day soon here, and I'm debating weather or not I should buy an older XL1 or a newer GL2. Right now I'm leaning towards the XL1 because it has a larger 1/3" chip and a FAR better lens - but it is older technology compared to the 1/4" GL2. Also, does...

In response to Freddie, Yeah, I did build my own dolly because the one our school had was being used on a "senior" shoot - but it wasn't as complicated to build as one might expect. I already had a heavy tripod with wheels on it, so all I had to build was the track for it out of some scrap metal. Th...

RE: *Need Help* Looking for short 5-7 page screenplays!

The plot HAS to be dialogue driven. The entire story of the film has be told through words spoken by the characters and we have to make it sound natural and realistic... we're not aloud to make a campy or comedy film out of the story. Which is weird, since film is visually driven. This is why I NEED...

New 8-min short film "Frustration!" now online.

Hi guys, Just finished this short film that I wrote, directed, and produced about a week ago and just got it on the net. It's a slapstick comedy about a guy who is late for work, and so far it's been that best film my film class has been able to put out. Hope you all enjoy it. Link to Frustration!
