    What kind of tripod should I get for what is right for me?

    Basically my current tripod is not the best and is wearing out, since it's old and was second hand, and I would like to get a new one. However, there are so many options. A lot tripods, have a feature where you can level it by putting the ball in the liquid circle, if that makes sense. Where as...

    What can I do about this audio/post-production problem?

    Okay thanks. Well the professor says I need to get the audio person's ass in gear, and make him do it, but how am I suppose to do that when the guy is just a volunteer, doing it for free? I want to pass the assignment, but how do I make the person do something he doesn't have the passion to...

    What can I do to get my audio engineer to return?

    Okay thanks. We didn't have class for a few days last weeks cause we were suppose to be working on the movie. I spent that time doing the other duties, while waiting on the audio engineer, such as color correction, VFX, and fixing other problems with the video from shooting. I didn't see the...

    For a film school short film, the school assigns the filmmaking students, audio engineers to do the audio mixed for our short film projects.

    What can I do about this audio/post-production problem?

    Well I feel it might be inappropriate to give the name of the actual professor of this class on the forum. Why do you want to know?

    What can I do about this audio/post-production problem?

    Oh yeah for sure. Normally I would pic an audio person I like and trust. However, since this is a film school assignment the school pics the audio person for me, and i don't really have control of that, so I am forced to work with what I am given, school wise.

    For a film school assignment, the school assigns a student from the audio engineering class, to record on location audio, as well as do the post production audio after. The audio student recorded all of the audio for me, on set, and now that we were in post production we have to do some ADR...

    Does anyone have any idea how I could edit this sequence, I am having trouble with?

    I am attending the Recording Arts Institute of Saskatoon. I showed a second draft of my edit to the instructor and he said that the story makes zero sense, and that I have to find a way to edit to make sense before he shows it to other people connected in the industry next week. I asked him...

    Does anyone know how to create this overexposure effect?

    Basically I want a character to fire a gun shot, aimed almost at the camera pretty much, and the image to over expose to pure white as it goes through the frames. I can do this by making them image over expose with keyframes. However, if I do that, the whole picture overexposes, where as I...

    Does anyone have any idea how I could edit this sequence, I am having trouble with?

    Okay thanks. I tried but I am having trouble matching the lighting. I need to do it on grass too. But still having trouble with a match. I hope to do it tomorrow if it doesn't rain hopefully. Preparing for the worst if it does again. I had to shoot during magic hour which lead to a very rushed...

    Does anyone have any idea how I could edit this sequence, I am having trouble with?

    Well I have considered that, but it seems to be raining everywhere, within a good perimeter of the city. I am going to try again tomorrow, but after that, not sure if I will get another chance, if it rains again, or if I cannot find a hand double that will match. I did manage to get a very...

    How much can make up de-age an actor?

    I have an actor and really like his talent, and I want to use him for a project. However, he is 60 almost, and the character should be someone who should be in his late 40s maybe, no later. Is it possible to get a make up artist, who can pull it off? However, a lot of movies have actors that...

    How is my first short film?

    I directed my first short film and welcome any feedback. One of the problems I had with it, is the crew left before shooting, so I had to shoot it all with no real DP, and had to do almost all ADR afterwards for the sound unfortunately, not knowing much about cinematography and sound compared...

    How important is a second act climax in the three act structure in this case?

    Okay thanks. The reason why the gang is there cause it will cause certain pay offs to happen that I want later on. However, she is not just a 30 year old who walks in. She has been a member for a long time, and perhaps one of the first. So she is a member just like the rest. As for the...

    How important is a second act climax in the three act structure in this case?

    Sorry if I sound like I am over explaining it. I was just trying to lay it all out to make sure. I didn't mean to write police woman. I don't know why I wrote it. I mean to write lonely, instead of ownly as well. Sorry. I actually broke up with my gf, and was distracted and upset, and...

    How important is a second act climax in the three act structure in this case?

    No the woman is not a cop, she is a member of the gang. The MC is the cop. There is no undercover cop in the gang. The gang uses her as a fake hostage, in case the new recruit is an undercover. But he is not and it was just a precaution. There is no undercover cop. Basically this portion...

    How important is a second act climax in the three act structure in this case?

    Yes the way I wrote it, the rape would happen around the middle of act 2. However, I was told by readers that they felt that the scenario is implausible and the characters come off looking real stupid as a result. Here is the situation as to what leads to the MC being raped: A gang is...
