Note from the director

Mathieu Thanks again for keeping the word out there. Because of the scope of this project it has been difficult stay in touch with everyone who has show interest. I am happy to say that this is REALLY nearing completion. I know because I a small group of talented people are doing it.

Andy - When it is done we will be having a sscreening in Scotland but I am not sure where - Dundee perhaps since that is where we were based while shooting there. Maybe Glasgow also London. I anticipate anoth two months to completion. In the meantime keep checking back at www.TreasureOfTheTemplars.com and check my personal updates on footage at

Hi Jonathan,

congratulations again with the film. I showed it to my collegue at work, and he was very impressed too, and we're both pretty critical of 'fanfilms'.
Good luck with finishing the movie!

Hey, Thanks for the great feedback. I'm still a little shakey with the tripod and stuff, but I'm working on it.

And Bill, I agree. I didn't really pay attention to the zooms until after post and then I realized I put way way to many in there. Opps! Well, thats what trial and error are for. Next time I'll pay more attention...

Any constructive critism is greatly appreciated!

Thanks guys!

excellent, great story and geat cinematography. I really like how you managed to create such spacial awareness from only using your stock lens. Also the colour grading really stands out, it looks very professional. Well done

Documentary release on DVD

Hi folks,

We produced a short documentary about Monument Valley last year; and now we finally are distributing it, and selling the DVD through the Film Baby website. Here's a link to the Film Baby site, with a trailer:

http://www.filmbaby.com/films/3003

To watch a higher res version, go to our website:

http://madjavaproductions.com/915.html (Scroll down and click on the photo; you'll need Windows Media Player to view the trailer)

We shot on a Canon XL2, using an Audio Technica wireless lav, and an Audio Technica shotgun mic.

Cheers,

Best Fifty Quid Monster Movie Ever?

Hi

I posted this in the wrong place and Dylan Couper kindly suggested I post it here. So... here goes...

Hello there

First time user. I've recently stopped shooting my shorts on 16mm film and have moved over to digital (mini DV). I couldn't believe the power of digital editing/shooting. I use Premiere Elements on my home PC. I got so excited when I realised that Premiere Elements could do blue screen that I embarked on my first special effects film. I thought: what's the simplest monster I can create and manipulate with blue screen? The short is called Doodlebug and you can see it here:

http://www.virginmediashorts.com/film/1543551325

The process took ten months; I'm very proud what we managed to achieve, at home(!) on such a low budget (fifty pounds).

My quick question is: I'd like to take my special effects film making at home to the next level. Premiere Elements isn't really a compositing/animation programme; it's an editing package with a little blue screen application embedded in there.

So, which reasonably priced PC based software would you recommend, please, specifically for creating special effect shorts (animation and blue screen)?

Thanks for this


Leepy

Well of course Adobe After Effects and Pinacle's Commotion are two premier packages. That being said, you should check out the software here:

www.fxhome.com

It geared specifically to what I think you're trying to do.


Cool Monster flic, by the way!

The Making of a Clip - Part 1

I thought you all might be interested in a project I'm doing over at musculardevelopment.com. I've been made a Forum Leader there in charge of helping the musclehead lifters and bodybuilders learn to make and post better videos. This is an example of the usual quality one can expect from them. (You don't have to watch the whole thing, I'm sure you will quickly understand what I'm up against.)

http://youtube.com/watch?v=kVdZqephnBI

Boring, right?

In order to demonstrate some of the basic methods of shooting and editing that we use to enhance a clip I decided to tape a fairly simple single lift and then take my "students" through the editing steps that we here all take for granted. I want to turn it into something special and show them how it's done.


Here is my first post with the explanation of my project.

http://www.vimeo.com/1120784

I'll post the various revisions of the clip here on DVinfo as I go along. As always any feedback or input is appreciated.

Thanks!
Mike
