Well, that didn't work as expected!

[Dave: oops, thought I had deleted that. I was trying to resurrect the system which allowed us to embed movies on these posts. None of the versions I have tried seem to work now.]

Re: BIAFF ONLINE ...

Even making such a short film can be very demanding and stressful And yet there is a whole new generation who've been brought up making selfies and vlogs on their smartphones who have developed the ability just to rattle somethig like this off in the 30 seconds it will take to show it! It may not b...

Re: A Great Read

I think you have to ask the editor to be added to the circulation. His name is Gary Peterson; I am sure he will welcome you. ned c Hmmm no reply as yet. Maybe it got deleted as spam (I get so much I don't always spot things I want). Follow up sent. [EDIT] Gary responded to my second email - apparen...

Re: BIAFF ONLINE ...

I’m hoping that the Saturday mini cinema shows will remain available to watch for a while, which would give us the opportunity to watch more of the films than usual. I sincerely hope so too. That would be a benefit which would help offset the disappointment of no physical meeting. One of the proble...

UNICA 2020

I was rather surprised to find no forum regulars apart from Brian Saberton and myself at the on-line UNICA festival last week. Were people just not aware of it? I think I got a couple of notifications via diffrent people on facebook. We had to sign up, in order to receive a link (to the Vimeo site w...

Re: Anyone out there?

Jameela, thanks for the post. i'm sure many will find it useful A little late now, I appreciate, but .... another (simpler?) approach to timing which removes the need to estimate when the other lines are spoken during the second take. To help get the timing right - and avoid time stretching - simply...

Re: A Great Read

Ned, that's just an email address. Do we simply email them and ask to subscribe or is there something a bit less secretive :lol: :lol:
I've done a quick search fro Aussie Movie Maker but can't find anything that is obviously this.

Re: Anyone out there?

Just for clarification, BIAFF judges do not decide what will be screened, though the top films will always be screened. Of the others, the Competitions Officer decides on the screening and aims for a balanced programme - a task in which he succeds admirably.

Re: Anyone out there?

Problem is, the judges said that the sound for this scene was all wrong because clearly “the redubbed sound was recorded indoors”. WRONG!! I know full well that recording indoors would be a big mistake for redubbing a scene that takes place outdoors which is why I re-recorded the actresses’ voices ...

Re: Anyone out there?

Gosh, what a story, I admire your tenacity! In reading it though, I can't help but feel again that the problem is 'competition culture'! ...but I won't start on that subject again here :wink: I don't think Howard has a problem with competition - indeed he isn't trying to "beat" anyone other than hi...

Re: Anyone out there?

Ned (and anyone else who's interested.) Both my cameras were bought for ease of use and the fact I'm not going to get sucked into the game of just spending another few hundred on another lens. Also I'm no photographer, so DSLR/Mirrorless would be wasted on me. It takes me long enough to get framing,...

Re: Clubroom/Film theatre upgrade due to Covid 19

I think you're in a rare (although not unique) position of owning your venue. Staines Video Makers, like many (most?) clubs use the local village hall. In June we received a message from hall management polling users about the possibility of reopening in August. For the reasons, you express we had t...

Re: Anyone out there?

Glad you're back in the saddle again, Ken. Like you, our filming of local stage productions (although not a business like your weddings) obviously came to a standstill. However we have been able to make a couple of films - for film challenges - my first creative films in two years! I also did a lot ...

Re: Anyone out there?

I'm on Ned's wavelength, we are photographers first and foremost surely. I'm not! I'm someone who wants to tell a story, but, like Ned, I often find myself lacking inspiration. But, if I like it, I'll take delight in telling someone else's - primarily through editing (shooting is merely the prepara...
