Magus Movie Update, part 3

Well, mixing the audio, adding sound effects/foley. Sounding good with the sound track music (which just arrived).

However, I am having an issue with color matching. All the effects shots (rendered from After Effects) are "dark" compared to the original footage. I have tried several settings adjustments, rendered to Bluray, and saw NO difference. Everything is dark. I am suspecting the Bluray HD range of colors. On a DVD, I don't think it would be an issue. Everything looks…

Magus Movie Update

Whew! I took last week off in the attempt to finish all the VFX on my movie short. With all the multi-tasking and lacking social life, I was almost 100% finished. One effect still needs development and a few need some fixing and re-render. I was sooo close. :)

 

I am trying to have the project complete by a certain date. I have had to compromise on  some of the VFX. There was a certain look I was going for, but with the time contraint, I do not have the time.…

DSLR Video Production Gear

The majority of dSLR shooters require a light gear load as we usually do not have the luxury of a full crew to help carry our stuff. We also might move to several locations in a single day, and more equipment means slower set ups and breakdowns which can make a tight video production schedule even tighter. There are, however, a few things that I recommend even one-man-band shooters to carry around due to…

Thoughts on Teaching Acting

I have been an actress( Theatre, Film, TV)  and a Director of Theatre for many years and never really thought about the merits of it until I started teaching acting classes.  Why we do what we do and does it really matter or does it matter that it matters etc.....Until one day, I was teaching an acting class, when I had a particularly challenging student in front of me and I had to stop and re-think my approach; what was I going to tell this actress...she was just not very good no matter…

Magus Movie update, part 1

A lil' bit of fantasy, a lil' bit of matial arts, a bit o' philosophical psychobabble and a plethora of visual effects and post-processing.

This is a trans-media short supporting a feature  length movie, working title: Nunya.

I don't know when the final final product will be finished. But I will keep y'all informed...

Comic Books Come to life

With a slew of comic themed films out this year including Thor, Capitain America, Green Lantern and yet another X-Men movie it has me pondering just how far we've come.

 

In my day we salivated at the mere thought of seeing one of our beloved comic heroes on the big screen. All too often we were let down by cheezy plotlines and special effects. So imagine my 12 year old imagination gone wild when I feasted on the first Superman film...you know, the ONLY Superman film?!... Dick…
