In my experience, premiere is just abit of a cheap imitation for the windows users.... even though it came out before FCP and was initially for mac. I take the film I filmed on and then I cut the frames I don't want and then tape them to the frame I want it at. My grandma tells me I'm a natural. oh...

RE: Dropped Frames While Uploading

You could also buy an external hard-drive, they are getting really cheaper now. I bought an 80gb hard-drive for $80 a while ago, now you can get a 200gb hard-drive for that same price. If you do go with the external hard-drive option, make sure you get one that connects to your computer via firewir...

swear sound effect

i guess you know what i mean. when in a show or something someone swears and it bleeps over them, ive searched heaps on google and in the sound fx library but all i can ever find is futuristic bips and bops.
just a link to the plain "bleeeeeeeeeep" would be much appreciated.

RE: Earth explosion

its pretty good. although the bit where the lights shining through drags on a little bit, i was wondering how it'd look with the music suddenly cuts out and then the zap and explosion happens. the big ring from the whole thing fades out a little too quickly.
but yeh good job.

At any rate, I believe it would be harder to film all these clones running around than creating or finding a location.
really, it would be quite easy to do it without any special effects, and there is only one interaction which can simply be covered up by close up shots.

RE: Execution (Gore)

it wasnt too bad. the colour corrrection was good. except the first blood hit burst out way too much in the opposite direction he was being hit. and the other couple were obvious that blood was being thrown at him.
cover up those things and youve got an alright splatter job going on there.

I think the deadline for the official end of the comp. should be September 1st.
same. cos i really wanna have a go and ive gotta be able to have me and my friends free to do it some weekend.
but as long as it has the story and elements of the script it should be fine.
