Re: Pinacle Studio 23 (Basic) audio panning

Hi Peter; If you have not all ready checked visit YouTube type in Pinnacle 23 and a number of tutorials will appear. YouTube is the first place I go to when I have a question about anything!

SW Utah Horrofest

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... o7hxgGgcWO

On October 8th in a local Megaplex 28 films under 5 minutes were screened in the annual Horrorfest. You can view them at the link above. I think that local challenges like this can produce remarkable results.

Screeners

In another thread I suggested the use of screeners for supporting BIAFF and i feel the suggestion needs explaining. Our local festival DOCUTAH usually has about 300 entries and these are viewed by teams who write reports on the films with recommendations for their screening as there are usually abou...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

The magazine is an internal publication distributed to the iAC members; it in no way expands or promotes the Institute outside its limited readership. To reach the wider world of film makers there needs to be something visible to them; as the BIAFF can be accessed through FilmFreeway and through its...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Time for some radical thinking: 1.Maintain the structure of the IAC as it is with club members in the regions and individual members. 2.Move the magazine to an on-line magazine with a member’s access password. 3.Appoint a paid Director of Festivals using the previous funds for paying the editor of t...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

After my rather generalized response to Jameela's article here are some specific thoughts about each of the points she addresses: Ground rules; in an age of increasing rudeness a requirement for for mutual respect is not out of place. On one of our local film making Facebook pages the opening statem...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Discussing the rules of the IAC overlooks two basic questions that must be answered before these details are addressed: 1. What is the role of the IAC in the present day world of film making where the divide between professional and amateur has virtually disappeared and now we are all “film makers”....

Clip identification

My Sony AX700 records clips with an identification starting with C and then in numerical sequence. I can find no way of changing the letter C to an alternative so all my clips regardless of the project share the same clip idents. Although kept in separate files on the hard drives when making a searc...

Re: BIAFF 2019 at Birmingham

Consideration should be given to on-line judging now that there is good streaming and with Film Freeway it is possible to both view entries and download them from the site. An example is our local festival DOCUTAH which has fifty screening teams drawn from the local population. We view the entries o...

Re: Wireless microphone system info

A possible solution, although not a radio system, is to have the talent have a Zoom H1n or similar recorder in a pocket with a Lavalier mic, this can be multiplied by as many recorders/mics you have. This overcomes any problems of interference although it does mean synching in post production. A sla...

Re: FVM MAGAZINE - FEBRUARY 2019

Dave; my attempts to find anything about Cathy were not very successful so perhaps you could point me in the right direction; thanks. Michael; unfortunately no visit to BIAFF this year; some health issues that hopefully will be resolved for a visit in the Fall. I have a meeting with the new "owners"...

Re: FVM MAGAZINE - FEBRUARY 2019

Dear Cathy; I assume your application to edit the magazine was turned down and I can't seem to find any of the articles you have submitted. Your obsession with the cover and the back cover are misplaced in my view; these are trivia compared with the significance of the survival/growth of the IAC and...

Re: Wobble Cam

Some thoughts: 1. The Mercedes ad tells a story which is easy to follow with a satisfactory resolution. 2. "The Old Guard" what still here? The reason the IAC is struggling to grow membership. 3. I loved jochicago's comment "the DP who allowed this should be fired". I am sure the style was agreed lo...

Re: Are we ready for an "Upright Film Contest"?

Ignore it at our peril. Yes; it looks awful but many people seem to be happy with the results. Have a section for"vertical images" in BIAFF and we will have a happy band of friends; probably young "shooters". Sweep them away and confirm that amateur film makers have minds closed to something differe...
