So all you film makers and to all you film makers in training. These are the words I bestow on to you that have been passed down to me from others. Keep it up, don't give up on what you think your dream is, if your dream is to be a cable monkey, then be the best damn cable monkey there is, if your dream is to be a great director/writer/actor then be the best damn director/writer/actor you can be. Just because may think your talent is not valid or you are not yet at your peak, do not worry…Continue

Okay. Now how to get everyone to the festival to watch the movie? Hmmm....
First off... spam Facebook. :) Okay. I will send only one post. Every hour. No, really. Just the one post. Then I'll sign up for multiple accounts under different names and post again. Just kidding. Deviously clever but too much work.
Perhaps, invite as many producers as I can via IMDBpro, telling them this is a must see. From Steven Spielberg's account.
Maybe, and this one is legal, get a guest…Continue

Okay. I submitted the movie. I was hoping the "received" indication would have shown up on Withoutabox by now. I am not sure how that all works.
Those that participated in this movie are extremely anxious to see it. I am not sure if I want them to see it before the premiere. Kind of a "don't want to jinx it" thing.
Directors are known to be superstitious. Or at least superstitious things happen around them. Like Terry Giliam's experiences. Are these mishaps perhaps the…Continue

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…Continue

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.…Continue

I am inspired by this invitatiion and I would LOVE to attend .. to contribute and be a part of this Visionary invitation .. as an actress, filmmaker and poet this invite makes my heart 'skip a beat.'
My heart and soul are with you ..unfortunately the rest of me is in NEW JERSEY.
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…Continue

I will be shooting a teaser in a few weeks to raise money for a feature to be shot in feb 2012. I am in need of the following:
Director of Photography (with own equipment)
Gaffer (with at least basic 3 point lighting equipment)
Special FX artist - There isn't much in terms of blood going on. We do have a person who will be working with us doing this but it would be nice to have 2 people.
This will be a one day shoot…Continue

In conjunction with the opening of the new Mosaic Acting Studio in Lodi, we'd like to have an open casting call on Saturday, September 10. Media Casting Group will be there, and we'd like to have a few independent film makers join us to accept headshots and resumes for their upcoming projects. You'll be able to get some exposure, and perhaps even hold some auditions if you'd like to. If you're interested, contact Charlie Holliday at email@example.com.

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…Continue
