Even 30 minutes is tough, trust me! But it is a much better goal.
Why not make some different (!) shorts first? Like (kinda) easy
to do things. Just a simple idea like "man sees someone steal
a purse and catches the thief" (lame I know, but you get the idea).

Something you can shoot in a weekend (if all goes well, heh) with
some friends.

Then create a script (either from the one you have now or a new
story) for a 30 minute movie and work your way up.

Better to create 10 short movies (15 minutes or below) then waste
a lot of time and money on 30 min. or longer films (ie, fail).

Lot's to learn!

Take a look at the articles I wrote on my first movie (the writing
isn't too great, but you get the idea):

http://www.dvinfo.net/articles/production/lohman1.php
http://www.dvinfo.net/articles/production/lohman2.php

For my second movie I made even more mistakes (and learned
tons). One of my primary locations was torn down in between
scouting and shooting which completely scrambled with my
shooting schedule (and yes, the movie greatly suffered because
of it).

Check the movie out here: http://www.ladyxfilms.com/theater/e14/episode_14.shtml

You can read at how this was all done and mistakes and so forth
in the following thread:
http://<a href="http://www.dvinfo.ne...adid=14250</a>

I was also an executive producer on the complete series which
limited my time to work on my own episode. This is what I meant
with time, it quickly takes a LOT of time to get everything done.

All the best with your efforts and lets us know how it goes. Would
be great to see your work!

Thanks Rob, I shall read and watch your stuff later tonight I have seen a lot of those Lady X films so it'll be interesting to see which one you did. Funny you should mention cops and robbers stuff and other shorts as I have some already written up but I wanted to shoot them in Japan the next time I'm over. They're only 1 or 2 minute pieces but I think they're funny and one is a little cop sketch. Trouble is I doubt I'll get my XL2 over there. I'll endevour to try though and in the meantime still finish my script as I'm confident in the story.

May I ask how old you are by the way? I'm 27 and I guess I have a strange desire to rush into things and accomplish something.

Ofcourse you may <g>. I'm just 27 as well, how is that for a
coincidence!? Why do you think your not going to get your XL2
into Japan? I would expect it to go smoothly. Do bring a copy
(or perhaps real, don't know what they want, inform with the
airlines in advance!!) of the receipt when you bought the camera
so they are not going to charge you tax in either Japan or when
you return to the UK.

It sounds like you have some (good) thoughts on some smaller
movies, I'd say go for it!

All the best!

I dunno Rob, maybe because I'm not sure about flying it over in the pelican case and dragging it around with me for two weeks. I would have liked a smaller bag to take onboard with me but can't really afford one and I plan on going around March, though I will try to get a new back by then. The other problem is getting permission to film in Japan, which I've tried to do but Osaka at least want more specifics and they've yet to reply back.

Hi, Folks...

Just wanted to update everybody:

I spoke with the first guy to respond to my post, and he's decided to come aboard and help me with the project.

I just want to say thanks a lot to everybody who offered to help! It was really great seeing how willing everyone here is to help someone out, even when the money is definitely on the short side.

As we complete the project, I'll post links to clips, trailer, etc. here before anywhere else.

Thanks again!

-Rusty-

Hi guys,

Would like to find someone that would like to shoot a wedding in Las Vegas. Shoot with 3-chip mini-dv, two manned cams, about one hour total. No editing. I will edit in my studio.

Thanks

HVR-Z1U (soon to be) owner looking for gigs as DP in Boston or LA

Hey everyone!

I've just pre-ordered the infamous HVR-Z1U, so I'll have it in mid-Feb. If any filmmakers are looking to get a short film or feature length done with this camera and wanna bring me on as their DP - please contact me.

I'm available anytime to travel, but I prefer Boston or LA. I will work very cheap and both you and I will be able to try out the latest HDV camera.

Thanks and contact information is on www.willowstudios.com -- let's talk!

Well, it was a while back and was someone who wanted the world for $50.00. I should have copied it into that post. Below is another great thread about rediculous and demanding job offers and the knuckleheads who make them. Enjoy!

Looking for HD crew to film CA wedding 4/30

Hi,
Looking for a crew to film my wedding in central CA. Setting is outdoor at golfcourse, and then indoor/outdoor reception. Need two shooters each with a 720p cam, such as the jvc. Preferably someone who knows how to get good shots out of the cam. Of course a meal and drinks will be available at the reception.

Can I get two quotes? The first is for a finished and edited product in native format on hard drive.

The other price is for the raw footage unedited.

Already talked to DJ, and he will not allow you to tap into his equipment for sound... just so you know.
Let me know prices if you're available; sorry for short notice.
Thanks,
Bob C

I've got your man.

We have someone who does all of our VOs. He has this amazing, deep, booming voice. What are you looking for?
