Re: The Magazine

An organization can only honestly represent the demographic of its membership and I suspect that the membership of the IAC; both club and individual is predominantly white male of middle age and beyond. To pretend that it is otherwise by featuring the one or two members who do not fit this image is ...

Re: Manifesto for Change

I have been catching up on my reading so I am rather late with these comments on the responses to the Manifesto for Change in the December issue of the magazine, but here goes. Chris Taylor’s piece is a comedy rant but short on any suggestions or analysis of the Manifesto. Eric Williamson is most in...

Re: The Magazine

I don't know who reads the posts here but a couple of comments re the letters in the recent issue of the magazine. I read Chris Taylor's complaint about his 2015 version of Premiere Elements with astonishment; welcome to the world of software. I used FCP all the way from V2 to V7 Suite only to be ab...

Re: The Magazine

Have received the February issue; was there a January issue? If so mine seems to have got lost somewhere over the Atlantic. I enjoy Willy's contributions to the magazine and I have seen a number of his films so know he is a skilled and interesting film maker so the attack by Paula Webster is both un...

Re: BIAFF Web Page

I reported the problem to Norton and received a reply that the web page is now cleared. I have found that Norton do block web pages for no apparent reason. Thanks Richard for your reply.

Re: FVM articles

https://www.studiobinder.com/blog/what-is-lut/ LUTs are a method of automatically color grading the image on the timeline during editing. LUTs are like FX and are loaded onto the clips just like FX. They can give a wide range of color grades to the image with the look of various film stocks and ligh...

Re: BIAFF 2021 - should we even hope?

I would like to attend at least one more BIAFF (I have only attended two) before I fall off my perch. So a delay to the Autumn and a live festival would be appreciated. We are unlikely to be vaccinated before late February at the earliest and for the vaccination program to be effective it will need ...

Re: FVM articles

Using LUTs rather than manually color grading is very easy (certainly in Vegas Pro 18). I have used LUTs on the regular 4K output of my AX 700 to achieve a specific "look". I bought an inexpensive selection of LUTs and have downloaded various free LUTs; the range is amazing with some very ...

I must ask Michael Whyman to put my e-mail address with my articles. I do know that some readers visit the links to my Vimeo site. Ken; I thoroughly enjoy your articles as we meet the real world of amateur film making and thanks to Tom for the detailed tech info. Michael; your son-in-law certainly s...

Re: IAC History - George Sewell

https://scotlandonscreen.org.uk/browse-films/007-000-000-345-c Thanks for this post it led to a trip around the net and this interesting connection; one of the three shorts is by George Sewell. The visit also turned up a PhD thesis on Scottish Amateur film. I enjoyed the radio program and the film a...

Re: Peculiar Camera Mounts

Interesting, valuable, Jameela; suggest you send for publication in the magazine. There was a complaint that the magazine spends too many pages reminiscing, these applications are the perfect antidote to that.

Re: AGM Zoom meeting

Thanks Tim and Dave for the information. As the Council Meeting Minutes are secret how do we know if any of the suggestions put forward by members are considered and the possible outcome? The only source of information on the Council activities is in the Annual Report; try finding those on the websi...

AGM Zoom meeting

Thanks to Simon for organizing the meeting; due to the 7 hour time difference and the previous evening filming an outdoor music fest I arrived late and enjoyed the final part of the discussion. Where do I find the minutes of the past Council meetings? I have been through the IAC website but cannot f...

Re: AGM and Survival

OK my last shot in this arena then I promise to shut up. Without a doubt there is a huge number of people across all ages and interests making films for pleasure. I believe they have one thing in common; a wish for an audience; they can reach huge audiences on YouTube and Vimeo and get feedback; but...
