    RED Camera Popularity

    I was just having this conversation the other day. I think the loyalty to the RED has to do a lot with clientele. A large population of clients have heard of the RED cameras and cling to it as the end all, be all camera of superior filming. If you have it, they want it for their projects. If you...

    Looking for someone to read my 1st draft of my 1st screenplay?

    It's hard to say anything about the content of the actual story since I only got to read a couple of scenes, but it seems like it would play on screen fairly well. The only thing that felt a little wanting was the flashback to Nikki's reaction to Daniel's not wanting to get married... I was...

    Zombie Nation

    Very cool. The Cinematography is great and the VFX is likewise awesome. Zombies are tons of fun, but super hard to pull off since you need tons of people and great makeup, or just lots of it, so it gets really expensive really quickly... not to mention overwhelmingly time consuming. My only...

Otherwise, I agree, take the time to properly light your scenes. High budget or low budget camera, lighting can make all the difference between a great...

    Filiming A Open Mic Cafe Scene

    It's really difficult for musicians to 'fake' playing their own music. To make her performance more genuine, I would just record her actually playing her songs. If you're blocking out an entire day just to get her performances, then you can probably get away with having her play more than just 1...

    Directing Actors - Is it them, or me?

    The numbers system sounds like a recipe for potential ego shattering. Descriptions to be "more angry, sad.." or some other such adjective is incredibly subjective. The depth of emotion a director may be attempting to pull from an actor may get lost in translation. If time permits and an actor is...

    does an editor have any involvement in pre-prod?

    Agreed. An editor who has no involvement in pre-production is almost akin to flying blind in the beginning. I may not have been an editor for too terribly long, but I have felt that too much time is wasted in trying to pull pieces together as to what the final product should look like and what...
