Re: Manifesto for Change

Next morning. In all the discussions there is little attention to what the benefits of membership are. If these cannot be clearly defined and be of value then there is no point to the organization. BIAFF could be a free standing Festival with its own management; it doesn't really need the IAC. It se...

Re: Manifesto for Change

Why should a young person with a mortgage, family, a degree in film, working in a retail outlet, a 4K telephone and a love of film making join the IAC? (if you wonder if such people exist they are certainly here in SW Utah and make lots of films). At present the benefits of membership are a well pro...

Re: Anyone out there?

Re: A Great Read

I think you have to ask the editor to be added to the circulation. His name is Gary Peterson; I am sure he will welcome you.

Re: Anyone out there?

Thanks Ken and to all the contributors who have made this a fascinating thread. There is so much experience and knowledge (OK Jameela how do you create yourself twice in the shot? I have done it but it's real struggle) that there is an obvious basis for an IAC register of expertise. Let me start her...

A Great Read

aussiemoviemaker@bigpond.com

If you don't all ready get the Aussie Movie Maker on-line magazine then I do recommend you sign up for it. Packed with really good stuff (OK they publish my articles as well). An example of how an on-line magazine can be very effective.

Re: Anyone out there?

The problem for the BIAFF judges is that they have to put their thoughts and conclusions in writing and deliver them to the film maker. There are three parts to their responsibilities; technical critique; artistic critique and selection for screening. In this the BIAFF is unique; other festivals aim...

Re: FESTIVALS ON FILM FREEWAY

It is best to avoid the big, famous Festivals with screenings often of less than 1% of entries; most of us are just financial fodder for festivals such as Sundance. I have suggested that Film Freeway have the Festivals list the percentage of entries screened; not well received as this would show whi...

Re: Anyone out there?

Thanks Howard and Willy. Howard; I have a similar NTSC version of your Canon; the Vixia HF G10 and although it is now 7 years old I keep it as it delivers such excellent HD results and for some BTS projects it is ideal as it is so compact and easily set up for either auto or manual. I visited your V...

Re: Anyone out there?

This has turned into a fascinating insight to what people are doing. I am gearing up to shoot four one minute films for regular writer/director Carl. We want to use this as an opportunity to explore more original camera work so have set up two cameras; the Sony AX 700 with a BeachTek adaptor to use ...

Re: Anyone out there?

If anyone on the Council is listening please join in and comment on the register of member's skills. It can be very simple to start; name, location, skills/interests contact method. 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...
