Re: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM FESTIVAL

Thanks for the comprehensive report, Howard, and sorry you went away empty handed. It is encouraging to think there were so many entries, but would I be correct in assuming most of these are from people hoping to make a career in film? The lack of attendees at the screenings is, I suspect, not only ...

Re: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM FESTIVAL

I'll cross my fingers for you :)
Do they show any of the award winning films on Saturday - it'll be interesting to read your views on them.

Re: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM FESTIVAL

Fair enough, and wholly understandable and I hope you'll accept my response was equally understandable as your earlier post implied you'd left the film as it was tedious

Re: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM FESTIVAL

Howard - I thought you had more stamina than that! Perhaps the Birmingham Film Festival over-estimated the interest in non-mainstream films. Basically we all want to see our own films and those of other we know but we are perhaps less interested in those films with which we have little or no connect...

Re: FVM Editor

Good questions, Ken. I too was surprised by the announcment but had assumed I must have missed something. My best guess is that he announced it only recently (and will keep hold of the reins for the next two/three issues - so perhaps no need to let you know in advance?) and Council has yet to meet t...

Re: "Will 'Ye Go to Flanders" screened to commemorate the end of WWI

I've not seen either film, Willy. Are they available online? Or perhaps you can suggets a mutual friend in the UK who could lend me a copy?

Paul Kittel Documentary Sunday 28th October 2018

Just a heads up that Paul Kittel's documentary "Hitlers Holocaust Railways with Chris Tarrant" is being shown tomorrow on UK's Channel 5 at 9.00pm. Those of us present at the IAC AGM last weekend were privileged to hear Paul speak about the making of this and many other programmes on whichh he has b...

Re: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM FESTIVAL

That's fantastic Howard. Many congratulations. Personally I've avoided any festivals (outside of stricly amateur festivals) that aren't free to enter as I always assume my own material wouldn't be suitable anyway and I have no interest in "competing" with tomorrows star film makers ("I know my place...

Re: Translation software

My approach to this would be to use some speech to text software in French then simply paste the text into Google translate. Windows 10 has speech to text built in, but I haven’t been able to discover whether you can feed it an audio file - all the tutorials I could find are for microphone input. Wi...

Re: hood for LCD screen

Thanks for the info Peter. Nothing beats first-hand, real user experience. Your difficulty in dealing with Liliput comes as some surprise as they were very helpful when I asked a couple of technical questions: maybe that's the difference between pre- and post- sales. The battery plate issue could be...

Re: hood for LCD screen

Let us know how it goes. I'm looking at the Liliput A7s (is that what you have?) and the Andycine 6 as possible add-ons to my kit.

Film Music

I caught the final half hour of a 3 part documentary about the history of music for cinema last night and I've just taken a break from editing to watch the first half hour of the series on catch-up. It's one of those documentary series that BBC 4 does very well - accessible to all but not too dumbed...

Re: hood for LCD screen

I use a brand called Hoodman. The HD350 fits my Canon xf100. There’s a bigger HD450 Simple & basic but effective. Other sizes are available.
