Hi Guerrapato,

I'm not to sure what exactly you are talking about.

Perhaps you could supply us with more information.

Thanks- Nori

He's talking about the documentary movie titled:

"STARTUP.COM"

It's been playing on Showtime recently, but is available on DVD and VHS.


From what I have read on several sites it was made with a Sony PD100 and a Canon XL1.

I had the same problem with some windows in my first short. Even tho it was overcast outside, and we had lights inside, the windows were way overexposed.

What are these ND gels you put over the windows? Do they go on the outside of the house? Can you get them in big enough sheets at a reasonable price? What would I search/look for, for example, at the bhphoto.com website?

Thanks!

Bruce,
The "ND gels" are basically neutral-density transparent gray plastic sheets. I really don't know if B&H carries such studio supplies. I generally use Studio Depot for such stuff.

Saw it the other day on satellite. Directed by one of my favorite documentarians ever, D. A. Pennebaker, who did the Dylan doco "Don't Look Back."

Here's Pennebaker's site which, unfortunately, doesn't provide any production details.

I saw, and very much enjoyed, Startup.com.

Autobiography of a Suicide

Well...

Its almost finished! In post, working hard, and loving every second of it.

This is a pre-thanks to all that volunteered their knowledge and helped me (and others).

I hope to have a trailer reel (HAR HAR) soon for your input and shortly after that the full short. It will be exclusive to only this site because of the contracts I am honoring.

Thanks all!

Coming SOON!

Smiles for all!

Cheers!

Derrick

Thanks for the replies guys. Like I said I knew it would be blasted with light - but I thought the director wanted to put it in B&W... so much for that.

Once we move to a new domain server we'll have more room and my feature length trailers will be online, I'll be sure to post when that all goes down.

I thought the short was pretty funny. Were those supposed to be the frogs from Magnolia? The guy with the curly hair is a good actor. Very natural. The other guy was kinda over the top, but still funny.

The part where they are talking over a black screen and then later they open the trunk is really great.

Cheers

Curt wrote a little more to it where the dude with the curly hair (me) went through a little Magnolia scene of his own - but of course we don't have a few hundred thousand billion trillion dollars for that...

So I guess yeah, it's from Magnolia - fresh from ILM :)

Looking forward!!!

My best on its final outcome, as we all know it was the process you'll mostly remember.
