The Production Lounge

Here's a place for us to gather and talk about whatever we want during the production of these fabulous films. Join in the conversations so we can spur each other on! We'd love to see 100% completion this round--everyone who signs up submits a film! Can we do it? :)

Ooh, this place is swish. Much better decor than the daily production rant ;)

I've written 6 scripts for this, 4 revisions each, 30 pages per... then tossed them all out.

Nah not really. I just wanted to contribute to the thread. :)

Slow start to this one. Work keeps getting in the way. Any number of ideas, just none that seems to slap me in the face and say 'hey, I'm the one.' Probably need to try a dose of aqua vitae and stare at the ceiling for a while.

You guys have done a lot more than me. Haven't had time to think about anything yet.
Maybe a script would be a good start.

Good evening,

Well, its been on my mind every night before lights out, sometimes nagging during the day.

I have had a couple ideas jelling on the perspective theme. One would not likly be a very popular look at things, the other actually would need some other people involved, Hummmm.

Maybe something better will come to mind!!!

I hope others arre feeling more inspired.

A kittin Cam, Hum?????? Is glue ok??? (scrooged reference)


Hope everyone is enjoying the coming season!!!!!

I really like this theme, but I am doubting if I am going to have time to work on it. We have a loose script and visual storyboard but still need major attention. I only have 2 weeks available and work might occupy that time now too.

Glad to hear someone likes the theme--I'm having a terrible time with it! I hope you find some time, Clint.

No excuse, but agreeing to step in as volunteer cameraman for a zero-budget documentary (yes, I am an idiot) is taking up way more of my December than I thought it would, so the challenge will have to wait until the week after Christmas. Hoping when my son gets home on Sunday he'll come up with an idea for it. :)

Lorinda, a week is plenty time.
My shortest UWOL was filmed and edited within a day.
You can do it!

And Clint, hope you manage to find some time.

So we have our idea and a pretty good idea how to shot it, and what effects we want. Now its just a matter of getting all the elements/people together at the same time to do the shoot.

I feel your pain, Graeme. Have just come up with a doozy of an idea but now need to blag a load of VFX guys through the company I work for to make it happen. Not sure how the whole "I need you to work christmas for nothing" pitch will go down ;)

Well the three of us came up with the idea, but now we need to get together the first week of January because the other two are out of country over Christmas. So I need to find 1 actress and one animal, stake out locations and propose the final shot list / locations for the shoot so that when they get back we are good to go.

So it boils down to this: a weekend of folly sipping caipirinhas on a Brazilian beach under palm trees and watching waves roll in as sweat trickles down the nape of one's neck -- or filming this latest challenge. Make or break time. The idea is cast, script is underway.... I guess tropical idyll can wait?

Surely it's vital to the integrity of the script to film in a tropical idyll ;)

Good evening,

Ah, al you high profile dv creators, even have a cast!!!!!

Script, yes that may be essential whether you have a cast or not. I doubt very much I could get anyone to go out in our winter weather to do what I would like!!!!! It was NOT cold today, only -17.

I think I have it worked out, will be interesting to see if it unfolds the same as my imagination has it.

No story board, but I do have a shot list!!

We had a great day out filming yesterday morning, we even ran into something rather unusual to add to the repretoire of footage.

Shooting in the winter here is all about "Low Contast" making that palatable will be the challenge.


Any idea how to take a still, cut out the middle and make it transparent???

I do have photoshop and am editing in Vegas.


Get out there filming!!!


Have a Great Christmas!!!!
