Re: The Magazine

The article I'm about to submit to the editor for the April issue does mention Super 8 more than once, so don't be afraid to avert your eyes you young, digital age, whipper-snappers. LOL! You don't say what the content is so I wouldn't like to predict whether I will be interested or not. But I woul...

Re: The Magazine

As usual I've written far too much so heres' the executive summary: Is FVM is rather too reflective when it should be relevant and aspirational? End of executive summary. I hope, Ken, you appreciate that I spoke of younger, livelier articles and did not take it to mean I was in any way disparaging e...

Re: The Magazine

I have to say, that is a very calm and well considered response, Willy. I am glad Paula has apologised. What was clearly intended as an example of a general criticism comes across as a personal attack. I agree with much of Paula's criticism of the magazine, but I find myself coming to the defence of...

Re: The Magazine

I, too, was appalled. Paula may have a point to make about the magazine but whatever it is will be overshadowed by the sheer bloody rudeness of the letter. I suspect this may have been a letter to the editor as comment on the content of the magazine and not intended for publication, in which case Pa...

Re: BIAFF 2021 - should we even hope?

Whilst I'm sure this isn't a democracy and we here are but a few select members anyway, I too would be in favour of postponing the British International (including the EU) Film Festival until we can have a live event. I've enjoyed several online meetings/festivals and I hope and suspect this method ...

Re: Sad news: RIP Reg Lancaster

I didn't know Reg very well, but he always made me feel like we were old friends. As I posted elsewhere, I once locked him in Laleham Village Hall, when he was in the gents, believing everyone had left. It was only when Annabel couldn't get into the car that we noticed :D

I really hope it is is, Michael. Not just a memory for the IAC but so important for you.

Re: BIAFF ONLINE ...

Willy, I'm sorry you were one of thiose suffering technical gremlins. To be honest I was surprised so many people did, given the way it seems we've all had six months of practicing with Zoom and other on-line chatter. But it's easy for me to forgeta as I've been involved since March with schools com...

Re: Voice Over Actors?

Or put the temporary edit on a smartphone? Even more portable (but possibly not so useful if both the director (you) and the talent need to see the screen.

Re: Voice Over Actors?

Presumably the words aren't going to change. You could record the voiceover yourself, edit (even a roucgh edit) the video to that and send your V/O artist the video. I do this whenever I'm producing a video with a voiceover - even my own voice over. Think of it as like a guide vocal in music recordi...

Re: Voice Over Actors?

Surely the key is in the name, voice over actor.
You'd direct them the same way as you'd direct any actor, translating the expressions of emotions and sounds you have in your head into sounds from the actor. Or am I over-simplifying?

Re: BIAFF ONLINE ...

Worked fine for me. Obviously lacking in atmosphere and (in my case) not as good sound, but on the other hand I could pause if needed and can now watch films from other sessions. On the other hand, very difficult not to be distracted at home (when there are people around who are not interested in wa...

Re: Peculiar Camera Mounts

BTW this is the film I made with footage from the improv tripod (plus some handheld and some on a little gorillapod). A wholly satsifying little film. My wife has decided we should visit the fells, but I think one look at this will put her off - great scenery, but I doubt she'll be up to the walkin...
