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...

Re: Anyone out there?

So a possible point of departure for the IAC would be to compile a register of members with their special skills/interests and geographic availability. Have we not been banging on about this for years? Or a broader variation of the same - to include actors, recommended places to hire equipment (may...

I'm totally with you there, Jameela. The rest is just techical stuff for boys with toys (runs for cover ....) :lol: :lol:

Re: Anyone out there?

Willy, you are every bit as much of this community as the rest of us and you've probably seen more of the UK than most. Having you and and ex-pat like Ned amongst us only strengthens the organisation. As a bare minimum it helps us remember there's a wider world out there and prevents us becoming too...

Re: LOCAL COUNCIL LICENCES REGARDING CHILDREN IN FILMS

Elise (now 15) has performed in several stage productions with reputable local am dram groups (associated with NODA). Whilst the groups have to submit various forms and arrange chaperones (and indeed the council does turn up to spot check), we have never, as parents, had to fill in what amounts to p...

Re: Anyone out there?

Yep. No one looks apart from the three of us.
Rather sad really as this could be such a great vehicle for sharing ideas and opinions.

Re: Colour Correction/Grading

Michael, I agree entirely the look has to be consistent across the whole film (indeed I said as much). My objective was not to question the validity of or skills required for grading. My question is whether the mood - the psychological effect, if you like, created by the grade continues to create th...

Re: BIAFF 2020 RESULTS

Much is lost by the inability to interact with people face to face (and Zoom/Skype/Teams meetings are in some ways worse than telephone) but, on a more positive note, we are lucky in that the results of our work can be viewed on a variety and discussed of platforms and shared among a wider audience ...

Re: Manifesto for Change

OK At the risk of digging over old ground I could simply post on YouTube (and potentially monetize an/or gain likes), but I want to improve. Feedback on YouTube, is very mixed and wholly unreliable. Unlike you I don't have any ambition to produce high art, nor do i have a message I wish to get acros...

Re: Manifesto for Change

Thanks for your thoughts Jameela, much of which, as you know, I agree with. However: However it is anticipated that for new and younger members, the primary purpose and need for this Institute will be from those who see it as their Vocation, rather than their Hobby – a 'Vocation' free of the constra...

Re: The Interviews - discuss

Loved it. Like many of the best ideas, a very simple one. I never knew you were such a good actor, Ned. With a simple prop you managed to become several different people. My only criticism: I'd suggest the "Director's" script could do with some tightening up - there's a bit too much in the...

Re: ABBERANT

For me this film just missed the mark. There's a lot of work in there - for example the mocked up DVD covers & books which appear on screen barely long enough to be able to read - and I love that sort of thing: it usually makes me want to watch again to see what I missed. Stylistically, whilst I...

Colour Correction/Grading

Prompted by a discussion in the Film Comments section (please contribute) and not wanting to take that too far off topic, I thought i'd post this here (though it's more "art" than "technical"). Firstly, I'm using the term "colour correction" to mean getting a shot to a ...

Re: The Sister Wives

There are also three "looks" created for different segments of the film, the Motel interview warm to represent safety, events at the compound cool to represent risk and the events in the world outside; natural. I did wonder if this was intentional, but concluded the Colour Correction was ...
