Re: First film i ever made

Thanks for putting on links to those early films, Jon. It's very interesting to see them...and now I am even more impatient to see your Diamond Award winning film at BIAFF. I particularly enjoyed "An Hour's Sleep". I was completely caught up in the story. Really routing for the older guy. And the tw...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Welcome to the IAC Forum, Jon! I can't wait to see your film "Making Friends as the World Ends". I hope we'll meet at BIAFF - I'm from Birmingham too! :D

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Michael Slowe's films have always been a great inspiration to me. I remember the very first one I saw was called "Leader of the Pack". I was bowled over by it and desperately wanted to make something like that myself. My first effort at a 'Michael Slowe' type film was called "Johnny's Pigs". Michael...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

It seems that one of the images was not perfect. Perhaps that's right, but I don't know which one. That's a bit annoying. Willy, you've picked up one of the problems that recurs in judges' comments: making a statement/criticism which doesn't help the filmmaker to do better next time because it's to...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Bob...those comments weren't about one of my films! They were about a film made by someone at my club who had never made fiction film before.

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

How sad that BIAFF has lost entries from those members of Bob's club. I hope they haven't lost the confidence to make films? I completely understand why BIAFF means something to you, Bob. Actually I don't think any of us would bother to enter if it didn't mean something to us! And I also chime in wi...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Well done Bob! Most impressive! And yes! I'm sure you're right that what's needed is to grab the emotions. Howard, don't be downhearted - I'm sure another panel or the same panel on a different day would have judged your films differently. Anyway, we all know that you make consistently good films. T...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Bob, I bet you did at least as well as me and my friend Debbie with our film Lady Macbeth Sleepwalking! We got 2 stars and such a damning judge's comments that I had to laugh :D

Translation software

I have a mass of footage in French. Unfortunately I don't speak French though I understand a bit. Ideally I'd like to find translation software which would translate clips so that I understand properly what's being said, to help me with a rough edit. NB I know that any such software wouldn't be very...

Re: Data protection Act

It's disappointing that the IAC hasn't provided any guidance to clubs on the new data protection regs. I heard a rumour that they were going to, but my club hasn't received anything and I can't see anything on the IAC website, and the rules come into force on Friday! On a creative arts website ("Vol...

Re: BIAFF 2018 AT HARROGATE

Welcome to Martin! It was really nice to meet you and Kerry. Good that you've found the IAC and that you enjoyed your first BIAFF. Congratulations on getting a 4 star and a 3 star award with your first entries. I've just watched them online. I loved the THE POLE LINER! It had me laughing out loud. M...

Re: Filming shows in 4K and cropping

Tom, if you vary your exposure as you go along, do you have obvious changes of exposure in your video? And what if so, what do you do about it?
