  1. A small selection of narrative films I've written, directed and filmed over the years.
  2. Hello , I would like to know how to shoot stop motion as it in this video technically .
  3. This is a short film I made in Oslo. Feel free to critique, comment and maybe share :) Thanks! Martin
  4. This is a short film I shot earlier this year - Buden (Awake; directed by Simon Moe and Lara Lovrič). I also worked as a 1st AD, editor, producer, sound designer and colorist. The language is Slovene but it has HQ English subtitles. We are enthusiast student filmmakers with aprox. 4 years filmmaking experience. International festival Zoom 11 chose this film as one of the "Top 10" film (503 were submitted).I would be very happy to get some honest feedback, specifically on my cinematography. Majority of the film was shot on Canon EOS cams, the slow-mo sequence was shot on Sony A7s and some internal shots on Nikon D3300. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tg5angkY8Ig&t=72s Thank you and best regards, Martin
  5. A short montage video I did from the famous "artists district" in Paris, it includes Woody Allen music and reflects the bohemian feeling of this painters-filled part of town. https://youtu.be/Ca5jI4ESJQA
  6. Hi guys! Let me introduce myself, I am an international student in Arizona and currently I am in college majoring in Media Communications. When I transfer to a university I was thinking about getting a bachelor's degree in General Business or Management (still have to decide which one's better for me), also I thought about getting a minor in Digital Film making, and a minor in English focused in Creative Writing or Rhetoric and Professional Communication (still have to decide which one's better for me). I thought about this because the film making industry isn't all about just knowing how to create a movie, but also how to manage the business of the film industry. That's why I thought it would be better to have a BA in Business. Also, I thought of the minor in English because a lot of filmmakers need to know how to write well, have a critical thinking, and be creative. My main questions here are: Is this plan a good idea? Or do you guys think I should get a BA in Digital Film making and get the minors in Business and English? Hope you can help me and thank you very much for reading! :)
  7. WRITER/PRODUCER/VISUAL DESIGNER SEEKING DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY WITH HER/HIS OWN EQUIPMENT WHO CAN EDIT AND PRODUCE — TO PARTNER ON PRODUCTIONS Hello everyone! Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to read my post. If it interests you I look forward to hearing from you... if it doesn't then I simply wish you amazing success on all your projects. I cheer for everyone to get their TV and film projects made! Okay...I'm a writer and producer, and a visual designer. I have multiple completed feature scripts and many more ideas/treatments. I have an open invitation for a pitch meeting with an Emmy winning TV producer who has produced hit after hit. I have received extremely positive feedback and praise on my feature scripts from other producers, known/recognizable TV actors, as well as Emmy nominated writers. Here is an excerpt from my recent thriller script feedback from one Emmy nominated writer who is also a director and a Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee: " It’s a really well done story and has a lot of box office potential ... It is often thrilling, suspenseful, and downright creepy — all ingredients you need in this genre. You have built a world that feels authentic and isolated, which helps enormously. I think audiences who love to be scared will eat this up. " I quoted them only to assure you that I can write well, as I know you don't want to waste your time anymore than I do. In addition to good feedback I was recently recommended to a lit agent by a couple of producers to be the screenwriter for the adaptation of an autobiographical book about a highly publicized national story. There are many projects I want to develop and shoot, but I need the right partner with whom I can grow with, someone with talent, a similar mindset, and equipment who can shoot and edit, and produce as well. I'm seeking someone who is extremely serious and 0% flaky. I have low budget, low-mid budget, and no-budget feature film projects we can discuss, reality TV projects, even YouTube possibilities. A few are pretty ready to go, some need more development, and many are just loglines or ideas we can build out. I co-produced a feature film (2010) that won a few festivals and had a small theatrical release before going on to its TV release. I have many years in the industry/LA and know some indie directors, distributors, DPs, producers, Emmy nominated writers and EPs, hair & makeup keys, production designers, other great crew, etc. I have good instincts, can think creatively in the moment, have ideas on how to structure funding to shoot, and am excellent at casting as I know what good acting looks and sounds like because I was conservatory trained and acted professionally in the past. In addition I have a B.A. in graphic design and have years of professional experience in NYC, DC, and LA designing posters, one-sheets, brochures, logos, etc. so we'll never have a one-sheet that looks like someone's dog made it in Microsoft Word. I am seeking someone who wants to commit to a real partnership of collaboration and focus on making product that will be captivating and commercially successful, and have a lot of fun as we go. If this sounds like the partnership you are looking for and you are a talented Director of Photography with your own equipment who can edit and produce, please send me an email with a little bit about yourself as well and a link to some of your work. Thanks for reading and for your consideration. I'm looking forward to getting projects DONE! :) EMAIL ME AT THE FOLLOWING EMAIL ADDRESS: partner2produce@gmail.com
  8. Hello, all! We are preparing to shoot a film out in West Texas (in the middle of the desert) soon. Our concerns are primarily with the heat (temperatures are expected to be a high of 101F) and bathrooms (as we will be far away from any nearby restroom). Additionally, we will be filming with RED cameras, and have a cast/crew of roughly 15-20 people. We have it in our plan to bring tents, massive fans, and water in bulk for breaks. And, we anticipate taking a 3-4 hour break during midday (when temperatures peak). However, we will have a lead actor in a fully black, long-sleeved/long-legged costume, plus another actor in a full body armor suit (a prop robot suit). Would any one care to share some advice, given past experiences with filming in similar situations? Thanks! John
  9. Hello all, For a class project we were assigned to make a music video. This is what I made, a fan production of the song "Baby Came Home 2" by The Neighbourhood. I would appreciate any and all feedback! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNdpX2hPpyQ
  10. Episode 9 of the Indie Film Academy Podcast, I'm talking with Caleb Pike about the best cameras available for indie filmmakers. http://www.indiefilmacademy.com/ifa-9-caleb-pike-dslr-video-shooter/
  11. Hey there, I'm unsure where to start, so I'm just going to say it all. I have a feature which was graded in FCPX using both a macbook pro and a calibrated monitor. Because most people initially watching the film were going to do so on their computers, we thought it best to find a middle ground for exposure and color so that it could be played on a computer, television or in a theater. Now that the film has been accepted to play publicly, we've been told that the blu-rays will be authored by an outside company for exhibition. That company mentioned that each film should have been graded on a monitor, calibrated using SMPTE PLUGe bars, as that is how the projector has been calibrated. Those bars are essentially all one shade of black on a macbook, so now I'm concerned that once projected, my blacks may look lighter than originally intended. What confuses me is that I have tested out my own blu-ray on a few different televisions, and the contrast and color looks good. When projected, could it really be vastly different? Should I re-grade another version specifically for projection exhibtion? And if so, does that mean I would need to bring down all my blacks? We used the scopes and everything is on the line, nothing crushed. And if that's the case, are studios grading several versions for broadcast and streaming? I know it's quite a bit to digest. Any thoughts would be welcomed! Go easy on me, I'm still learning. Thanks so much!

  15. "As Day Turns to Night" was made for my production class. The film is my analysis of the psychological effects of loss and what it can drive a person to believe. Any criticism is welcomed and very much appreciated! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad6QHJAYgLw
  16. Hello all, So I film on the Blackmagic Pocket Cam, which is infamous for how fast it heats up. Now I've never had a problem with it overheating, I have generally been filming in A/C cooled indoor areas. However, I'm beginning production for an upcoming film, and most of the filming will be done outside... oh, and lest I forget, I happen to live in the great state of Texas where the average Summer temp. is around 96 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm a little worried about it overheating in the outdoor temperatures. So my question is: how do you keep a camera cooled down without damaging it with ice/water?
  17. Hello all, So I'm messing around with shots for a film of mine, and I have a scene where a lot is revealed, emotionally (to be simple: a man shoots his brother for the crime this brother has committed). Anyways, my question is: what functions do a pull-back have in a scene? I have it storyboarded to where we have a push-in on the dead body of the brother and then we cut to a pull-back from the shooter (both are iso shots). Any suggestions/comments for this function?
  18. Hello all, As I've been expanding my crew and becoming more involved with just directing actors, I've been looking to buy an external monitor for my BMPCC so I won't have to work back and forth to check shots. My question is, do any of you guys have a suggestion for an external monitor for the Blackmagic that is under the price of $200? Thanks! John
  19. I'm creating a Super 8 booklet for novice filmmakers. The idea is to explain what Super 8 is, showcase what it can do, and to cover all the basic steps, so that someone with no knowledge could come out with an understanding of how to film using Super 8. Also, since its been awhile since I've shot on Super 8, this is a way for me to get back into Super 8. Its for a college project, but I'm going to release it online as a free PDF afterwards, and hopefully it can be a help to anyone who wants to learn about Super 8. What I really need are stills and photos (of Super 8 cameras, film cartridges, etc.) for the manual, and I'm wondering if any of you would have material you wouldn't mind being used. I really want to showcase what Super 8 can do, so I want to have some stills/screenshots. Anyone who helps would get full attribution in the manual, plus a small byline or paragraph where you could plug a project, website or service. And...if you have any feedback or thoughts about this manual, I'd love to here your thoughts on it!
  20. Hello all, Within the past few years, I've been hearing that getting a film degree won't actually get you anywhere in the industry, only the people you know and the talent you have can. Well, does the same apply for a producer? Merely curious.
  21. I've became really passionate with Cinema in the past 3 years, and before that I was already passionate about photography, for about 6/7 years now. And so I've decided that I'd like to experiment on this journey of filmmaking since it's something I quite enjoy doing and am currently studying. There's a lot of independet DSLR filmmakers now which is amazing. And so I've decided to buy a new camera! From my previous experience with photography, I'm more of a Canon fan since I first started with the classic Canon AE-1. I don't really have a big budget, but I'd like to invest in something that has quality and is worth the price, and that will be able to last me a couple of years until something greater comes along or I am able to afford a better one. Since I am between photography and filmmaking, I was looking for a camera with both. Or would it be better to just invest in a filmmaking camera? (I own a Canon 1000D for photography, but it doesn't capture video.) And if I do go for a DSLR with both photography and video, I thought about Canon 70D, since I can't afford a Canon 5D and I think it might be a little out of my league yet. So please, I'd appreciate some opinions if possible! :)
  22. Want to know your opinion about my reel. Camera used: Canon 5D mark III and BlackMagic https://vimeo.com/116051988
  23. Very big move for a company like Amazon, however, it was expected after all the money they put on developing new teams for their studios and production positions and how well they performed on smaller productions. http://variety.com/t/amazon-studios/ http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/19/amazon-studios-to-produce-original-films-for-theatrical-release/ It wants to market the indie community, which is really good. Their plan for distribution is fab too, let's see if it works though, I hope so! Have a good day!
  24. Hey everyone. I figured you all would appreciate this. My dad - a true lover of the NASA space program - sent me this link to one of four videos of the space shuttle lifting off at 400fps. I am posting it here because the narrators talk extensively about the film-making processes that were used to achieve this. Really astounding images on 16mm. Enjoy!
  25. I hope it's okay to post about this here. I saw a few questions about filmmaking workshops. Website: http://www.shooteditlearn.com 2014 Speakers: Bonnie Curtis (Saving Private Ryan, Minority Report, A.I. Artificial Intelligence) Shane Hurlbut, ASC (Need for Speed, Terminator Salvation, We Are Marshall) Alex Buono (DP SNL Film Unit, Green Street Hooligans) Andy Baker ( SVP/Group Creative Director Nat Geo Channels) Ryan Connolly (Film Riot) Salomon Ligthelm Joe Simon Khalid Mohtaseb Joe Sciacca Joel Edwards (From shooteditlearn.com) Why Should You Choose Masters in Motion? We may be a little biased but we believe that Masters in Motion is the best filmmaking workshop around. What do we think sets us apart? Quality of Education In any creative field, many things are subjective. That is why we always gather a diverse group of speakers who are all successful working professionals from various backgrounds. We have everyone from wedding filmmakers, to smaller boutique production houses to people working on Hollywood feature films and everything in between. For Filmmakers, By Filmmakers This workshop was founded by and is run by two filmmakers. We know firsthand what it’s like to struggle to make ends meet as a freelancer. We know how intimidating it can be to try to transition into the commercial world. We get it. We’ve not only been there, we never left. We have made a lifelong dedication to our own education and hope to continue to share that with everyone we can. We Understand That People Learn Differently Some people learn best in a lecture based environment, while others do better in a more intimate hands-on setting. We don’t think you should have to choose one or the other, which is why we have combined the best of both worlds. We have both lecture based presentations and a full day of break-out sessions. We Care We pour our heart and soul into this event every year. Our goals are the same as the day we started. We will continue to do everything in our power to keep growing this community, to offer the best educational resource possible, and to create the best environment possible to foster personal and professional growth. We Listen We not only listen to feedback but we recognize it as an invaluable source of information to make sure we are always improving. We not only listen to feedback from attendees, presenters, and our staff but we act on it.
