Hey everyone, I just recently completed a 50 minute acton-drama called "Trigger," follwing the story of four thieves as they attempt to rob a bank in New York. I created a myspace page for it--check it out and let me know what you think. I'll be posting more information on the film soon.

Thanks alot!

Click on the link above, then when the 'file factory' page opens - click on the blue text in the middle of the page (around a third of the way down) that says Download for free with FileFactory Basic

The page will refresh and now click the link that says 'Click here to begin your download ' which is again in blue and again in the middle of the page.

Thanks a lot for the positive feedback!
But I am looking for some constructive criticism as well. :)

I used a Sony Z1U, a Lowel DV light kit, a Sony UWP-C1 lavalier mic, and a Audio-Tcehnica AT897 (for background noise). I figured that since 1/2 the video is audio I better have something that can pick it up pretty good.

The Green Bench Show: Relationships

Just in time for Valentine's Day.

Check out the latest Green Bench sketch comedy show.

My favorite show so far. Hopefully you all will like it. There's one or two skits you may not get unless your a hip hop fan, but then again, I know my target demographic. ;)

Anyways, enjoy.

Boxlor 3

Here's the link to a video I finally put the finishing touches on. I wish Livevideo wouldn't compress it any, but that's how those sites (like YouTube) work. Please note, this is a long video (22 minutes), and it's about a Superhero ... that's a box.

Wow, that's a long link...

Thanks for the comments. I'm glad you found it funny. I had a great time making it. As normal I filmed it all by myself. This time, however, I also tried to adhere to the 3-point lighting scheme. Considering the limitations and difficulties inherent in acting, directing and lighting, I'm quite pleased with the results.

Thanks for the info on the contest - I'll check it out.

It needs NONE of that. I am really impressed by both the lo and hi quality WMV versions. Detail and color POP on my monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 912n about 2 years old) and this test stuff is very enjoyable to watch.

Did you shoot it in HD and downconvert in any way to then go WMV?

I kind of avoided seriously considering HD due to editing and workflow considerations, instead I purchased a Panasonic 3CCD PV GS500 which cost a lot less and I am pleased with it, but am wondering if I really should have "raided" funds and gone for something like the Sony you did this with.

12 Episodes of my Sitcom Online

Hey all,

So I've put out 12 weekly episodes of my web sitcom, Buddy Jackson ( We are cutting number 13 now, and just shot 14-17 this last weekend. Take a look, and let me know what you think.

This has been a huge learning experience for me. I know that it's getting better as we go, both in terms of writing and production, but there is still a lot to learn. It has been a big exercise in trade-offs for me, because we never have the chance to do everything right.

We have been shooting at a wild pace. This weekend, because of schedule contraints, we had a 9 hour day shooting in an office, and a 7 hour day shooting in a gym, and we covered 29 script pages - better than 14 pages a day (and short days at that). I would love the luxury of shooting at a slower pace, but we can't afford to. Even adding one more shoot day per month would greatly increase the cost, and would further tax my busy volunteer actors. I am at least going to make sure we can schedule 12 hour days next time.

After the first five episodes we shot (1,2,3,5,8), we switched to a two-camera format to get more coverage. All of the rest of the episodes online were shot with Sony X1's. This latest weekend we moved to Canon XH-A1's, and I was very happy about that.

Crew typically is me, a pro DP, a semi-pro B-cam op/gaffer, a script super/video tech, a non-pro sound person, and a PA or two. We run fast the whole time. The actors help out a lot on that, because they generally nail their parts and we have relatively few retakes based on dropped lines. We'll usually shoot a master shot on cam A, and one close-up on cam B. Often we'll shoot a safety on that. Then we'll switch and get two other close-ups and run the whole thing again. Sometimes we will redo this to get try difference performances or shots. The final takes, once the actors are warmed up and the camera ops know the dialog, we'll wander with the cameras.

The writing/directing/producing combo definitely takes a lot of time, but right now there is nothing I would rather be doing. It is a complete blast, and I like the product.

That was really nice promo. I enjoyed it. Encoding and playback on my PC was very good. By the way what does "Ningaloo" mean? Also, how is Edius working out for you? Are you using the NX card to output to a preview monitor?

The Ningaloo Reef meets the beach of the North West Cape of Australia. It is on my list of "must see" before I die.
