If even only 100 members registered it will be a start. No need for actors/suppliers etc.to begin. If no-one other tha...

Re: Anyone out there?

The modern approach to film making by the younger generation is based on networking via social media; this is the basis of the very active film making community here in SW Utah. There is a geographic limitation as most of the active participants live within about a 50 mile radius. At present one of ...

Re: Anyone out there?

OK; I love cinematography and everything to do with it; I enjoy working with directors. I find it almost impossible to have an original idea so my script writing is almost non-existent; as for acting I can only play myself (see Interviews) and then once every three or four years. Editing; love it as...

Re: Anyone out there?

I love getting my copy of the magazine and I believe it is the only magazine in the world devoted to amateur film making and in many ways the only solid benefit of being a member of the IAC. My concern continues to be ensuring the survival of the IAC by identifying its potential wider membership and...

Re: Anyone out there?

I can't give an exact parallel to your experience Michael but have experienced something similar. I was Submissions Director for the first year of DOCUTAH organized by our local university. Everyone on the management committee was to be paid; I was the only member not an employee of the university a...

Anyone out there?

Every two or three days I check this forum and although there is alleged to be 100 + on line no-one actually adds anything. With the shut down this should be a time for lively debate; I must assume those 100's are in fact Bots.

Lens Tests

This is the link to the lens tests reported in the August issue of F&VM. I am interested in comments/thoughts about the use of old still camera lenses for video.

thanks

Re: Colour Correction/Grading

I recently shot a short film using two cameras at right angles; an old Canon HD video camera and a video capable still camera (Lunix GX85). I set up the Canon manually and the GX85 on auto. There was no match between the two images in both color and exposure so it was impossible to intercut. Using t...

ABBERANT - discuss

Cathy; have given this discussion its own heading, Enjoyed the film; I grew up with the Goons so surrealistic madness appeals and nothing deserves sending up more than "serious" film analysis. For me the best characters are the academics; you could build a film around those two. I am sure I have see...

Where is everyone?

On the section "Sharing the movie experience" there is a vigorous sharing and discussion of our films and scripts supported by only three people. So where is everyone else? This a friendly exchange of views and a positive learning experience from which I have gained valuable insights about some of m...

Re: The Sister Wives

Thanks to both of you for your comments. First a quality explanation; the version on Vimeo is an .mp4 created from an .mpeg2 version ripped from a DVD. There are also three "looks" created for different segments of the film, the Motel interview warm to represent safety, events at the compound cool t...

https://vimeo.com/37972095 OK at the risk of being a pain another one. This film was made under the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) short film agreement as professional actors were involved who were paid so not eligible for BIAFF. Screened in a few other Festivals. Some background; although illegal, polyg...

Re: To Think Differently

Thanks Jameela; I successfully streamed your film. Technically well done; particularly as I suspect most of it is self shot/recorded. Good image quality and very good sound. For me the problem with the film is that you have intertwined two parts of your life journey that would be much more easily un...
