I guess that's why Star Wars fans get away with it... because George Lucas owns most of the rights to his stuff anyway.

Fan Films keep the franchise alive whilst the main movies are away... :-)

Fan Films

I'm sure you all know, that there is a kind of Phenomena out there called the 'Fan Film'. Many many mainstream films have had homage paid to them from Amateur filmmakers, me included. From Star Wars (the most popular), to Indiana Jones, to Harry Potter, to The Matrix. Have any of you out there made ...

Thanks Film Thurso, I did put the odd hour in here and there! The rundown sequence for example (featured near the end of the trailer) where the girl is being chased by the speeding car.

I remember when the club i belonged to got a 60'ish year old guy to run the show (ex-BBC), the first thing he asked us to do was make a short documentary on how to make a cup of tea! Now i know people need to learn the basics... but isn't our hobby all about having fun too!? Did you consider that o...

Personally... i really like the words Institute and Cinematographer. Its the Amateur bit that i'm not 100% sure of.

Good tip Dave.

You can also use Apple Quicktime Pro (only costs £20) and that allows you to edit, import and export video using a huge range of file types and compressions.
