OK, so it’s one week until auditions, almost exactly! Thanks to everyone who has responded so far, I’m pretty excited about seeing the talent that’s out there. Just as a reminder, auditions are being held:

April 7th-9th, Wed-Fri, in the evenings from 6:00pm to 9:00pm; and April 10th, Sat, from 10:00am to 6:00pm

The auditions are being held at:
8121 Georgia Ave. Ste. 900

I just installed some PM software on the server to help with organizing everything, only a matter of time before we get this show on the road!

Get the Flash Player to see this content.

This is a test using the new C4D mograph dynamics. Still have several kinks to work out, and also going to experiment with using constraints on bones/joints to dummy fracture objects to see if i can get the crane to twist and bend. Maybe also some cloth for tearing?

DSLR Craze is Catching On, Might Get a Canon 5D Instead

No Comments

After reading this post on the cow, I might pick up the Canon 5D instead. It’s got the fulll 35mm sensor for better low light shooting as well as perfect 35mm film look…

Just Pre-ordered a Canon 550d

No Comments

So you might be thinking it’s crazy to shoot a movie with an SLR camera, but wait until you see the 1080p this thing kicks out. Nino Leitner got his hands on a pre-production model of the 550 d and put together a short film entitled “Feburuary”. You can watch the amazing footage as well as read his review over at his blog here:

Here is the color graded version:

FEBRUARY – COLOR GRADED VERSION – shot on the Canon EOS 550D / Rebel T2i from Nino Leitner on Vimeo.

The only draw back of this camera is that because it is a CMOS chip, there is distortion in high motion footage. That means all of our action scenes will still be shot on the Panasonic AG-HVX p2.

Meetup.com Killed our Group!

Well, I just got this email, and I’m going to see if I can fix it…

Hello,

Your Meetup Group recently came to our attention. Upon review, we’ve
found it to be primarily for the purpose of promoting a service, acting
as a listing service/notice, or otherwise highlighting a commercial
offer.

As a result of our inquiry into this matter, we’ve closed your Meetup
Group and refunded you for your most recent subscription payment.

We thank you for your interest in Meetup and apologize that we are not
able to serve your needs at this time.

Sincerely,

Meetup HQ

Script Submitted to Copyright Office

No Comments

Well the script was just submitted to the U.S. Copyright office, so I’ll be posting that soon. I also think I have a venue for the auditions, going to be checking out a spot this afternoon (thanks Kat!). If it looks like it’s going to work then I’ll design the posters and get to work on spamming out the hype for the auditions. Let’s get this show on the road!

I need to find a venue for auditions

No Comments

CASTING!

Hello everyone, I need in inexpensive/free venue to hold auditions for a short film. Multiple days, probably 3 weeknights and a Saturday (Wed-Friday 5-8 & Sat all day) please let me know if you know of one in the DC metro area. I will also be posting a list of characters with descriptions shortly.

PRE-PRODUCTION UPDATE

I have storyboarded about 30% of the film so far and it’s probably going to take another 10-20 hours to bang out the rest of it. So basically I’m on track to have that up and running well before we start shooting (awesome).

CREW!

I will also be looking to hunt down some some production folk in the DC area. Hit me up if you live in or can get to the DC metro area and would like to help out!

end of line.
