Mixing Audio For Student Film
Tyrone Rose posted a topic in General DiscussionI mixing audio for a party scene inside of a house but having some trouble making the atmosphere seem believable. I have party-goer noise, dialogue, feet, but im unsure how to balance the music? Which frequencies should I remove/enhance for the music/dialogue?
Using Blockbuster in a film
Kenny Williams posted a topic in ProducingI am producing a student short this summer, and it takes place in the late 90's. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction to see if we can use blockbuster. I've spoken to a few copyright lawyers the ones I can get to call me back, and they said since it is out of business we should be ok but they aren't sure. Does anyone know where I can go or who can talk to and find out for sure?

Student film shot partially on 35
Sultan Thahir posted a topic in Please Critique My WorkI'd like you guys to check out a film I've been working on for a bit now. The original plan was to shoot exclusively on 35 but our camera broke and we finished it on digital. I really do take pride in composition and mise en scene, but fluidity of narrative is where I can do so much better. Please give it a watch, it's just 5 minutes of your day, and if you aren't sold in the first 30 seconds, shut it off. We shot this on an arri 35 IIb and a 60D. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdt7fnaHJPQ&feature=autoshare
Short Film - On an Unexpected Passing
Michael Ong posted a topic in Please Critique My WorkHere is the Link to the Film: Hi, I shot this with a Canon 7D mkII primarily with the stock lens, to film the scenes a little quicker and better at doing some guerrilla film in the city. Although at some point, the project was to be shot on 16mm film, but that didn't happen due to time constraints. Some shots are filmed with a Panasonic AG AF-100. Some scenes were shot with the stockings at the back of the lens. However, I do not recommend unless there is a lot of testing prior to film, a lot of the footage are mushy and unusable. I changed the story multiple times to accommodate the availability of the actors, my best friends actually, and the logistics of the making the film and getting the message across. Writing out 20 pages of materials and prose really helped a lot in the formation of the film. I guess one of the major influences in this film is the camera movements and the aesthetics of music videos made in the mid 90s. Ridley Scott with the use of the step printing and the visuals of Michael Bay (not necessarily the story) Post Production took another 3 months (on and off) afterwards, with lot's of special effects and major editing and story decision. Enjoy

HI all, I recently finished a school short film project as the colourist of this short, The Haze. This is my first time grading a full short, for the past I was just doing practices and reading books about the color correction and grading. The short was mostly shot in a forest in Day and Night and the story is all happening at night time, so it was quiet a big challenge for me to match the shot. Also I found it hard to get the skin tone correct and matched. If anybody have any tricks and tips, it will be great! The short was shot on a Canon 60D with Sigma 30mm f1.4, Graded using Davinci Resolve Lite and Dell U2410. Please take a look at this short and any comments and critiques will be much appreciated as it will helps me learn and improve. Thanks a lot! "The Haze" - https://vimeo.com/52768534
Film and Television Masters Program in CT
darius shu posted a topic in Students and New FilmmakersIs anyone actually on this forum? I'm applying to the new FTMA program at Sacred Heart University. It's a one year master program. Has anyone heard of it? They say they focus on story and technique for the new media market. I like it but it's in it's first year. This could be good or bad. Thoughts?
