Which stills? The nighttime or lake scenes? For the lake, I color corrected the video to make it appear washed out and undersaturated. The night scenes were the ones done in the XL2.

I prefer to direct, but I had to act in my latest production. It was a good experience, because I got to go through first hand of what it's like to act. It's one thing to tell your actor, "OK, you need to do this, and show this type of emotion", but it's an entirely different thing to actually exper...

A bit here, but nothing on curved...I'm not sure how you can do that without metal or specialty pieces.

I meant your gain settings, because the footage looks rather grainy. Whoops, shows how much of an amateur I am :D Yeah, gain was up. For inside portions, sometimes it was up 12dB. I kinda like it, though...so many people are focusing on making the image super good looking (which is great), but this...

I really don't know. A lot of this was shot in dark areas, but I think it kinda adds to the whole film look of it. I don't really have much in the way of lighting equipment, so I just pulled all the blinds down, then messed with them and the lights in the room until the shadowing looked good on the ...

Looking very slick. That Anthony Frisone looks so much like Wentworth Miller it's not funny. Heh. Yeah, that's exactly why I picked him out. When I told him he would be acting as a hitman, he went crazy. "This is perfect for me!" So it made both of us happy. Just out of curiosity, are you shooting ...

Hmm...it's not quite like that. Check out his script, I put the link up there somewhere... It's more of a guy borrowing money. Then the hitman has to kill the guy...who is his best friend that just turned up. It's actually really interesting, with flashbacks and bits and pieces being revealed all al...

I getcha. We already shot the scene, so it's bit late for that lol.

But I think it worked out pretty good, and in the future I'll bind the money for sure.

The pic with me was touched up with Photoshop to blur out the background. It will not be so in the final product, so it's all good. Don't worry. :wink: This film is actually the one that has taken me the most time to set up. Some scenes took 15-20 minutes to prep. But that's OK, it just means that i...

After DarkElastic entered the MH script contest, I was impressed with his entry. http://www.matthawkins.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10795&start=0 Even though it wasn't the winner, I wanted to make it happen.

Well, I couldn't get around to making this stuff. It's too hard to do with the time I had. I was able to find enough $20s to lay on top of some play money that got the job done after all. :D

OK, thanks! I'll try the Window Picture Preview option. Thanks for the tips, Jperson...but the $100 you found is a little small. To resize it, I would need to bring it into the computer, which would not work... Tried what you said, Ken. I had 3 $20s scanned and put online, then downloaded it and tri...
