    Music in film

    This question is in regards to both the online contests here at and the use of unoriginal music in film in general. I know that specif permission is needed to use copyright music, which I'm guessing is not permitted in a film submitted to the contest. However, is it legal...

    Introduction - Hello

    Hey, and welcome to the forums. Yes, still photography does help one understand the concepts of lighting. However, taking a basic cinematography/film class would cover the basic of lighting anyway, so i say go with the film class. Fortunetly, my dad is ( or was) a professional photographer...

    Avid - Any questions? What do you think? Chat about Avid

    I've been using Premeire Pro to edit, or at least trying to. The rendering process is so ridiculously long, i cant seem to get anything done. Is the rendering process on Avid or FCP faster and more efficient, or will i find it to be slow on all professional editing software? -Mark

It involves a ghost throwing a glass, so we basically just see the glass fly. Can anyone tell me exactly how this can...

    You would be right in most cases. However, the cast has not even read the script and only have a vague idea of the story. I don't think they lost interest in making THIS film, but just making films in general. I guess theres nothing left to do but find new actors . . .

    My cast is having second thoughts about making an upcoming film. They are my friends, so they're my only hope for making the film. What can i do to keep them in the production? Peace

    Printed out the perfected script today (not the one above) and registered it on the Writers Guild (highly recommended). Just a quick question to those of you who use storyboards: Who draws them for you? A friend? Professional? You? Peace
