oh.

Yeah.
First of all, there is myspace (of course). There purevolume.com, But I don't know if you can host videos or not. Ummm..... Thats all I can think of.
Myspace is going to be your best bet, I think.

Let me know what you end up with.

Another Johannesburger

Hi, guys
Just joined, and glad to see other South Africans here! In Jo'burg, strictly amateur. Wish I could spend more time on this, but my day job (labour lawyer) sometimes keep me too busy.
Current gear: Canon XH A1, PC with Premiere Pro 2, After Effects 7, etc. Couple of older things lurking in various cupboards, including Canon XM2.

Still trying to acquire some more After Effects skills and engaging in the occasional tussle with keyframes etc.

I came to DV from an electronic music background (Sonar).

Anyone know of any good ruins, deserted factories, old industrial sites to shoot in (I'm working on a project called "empty places")?

Regards,

Carl Mischke

Hi Guys

I am also an amateur - wish I could spend more time on this (my day job is in IT). I am still using DV (XL1) ..busy looking for something to upgrade to. I have a Canon XL1 and edit on Matrox RT2500 with Adobe Premiere.

Want to get into HDV...looking at the Canon XH A1 and other editing possibilities to upgrade to. If you guys are ever around Pretoria or Gauteng..give me a call (Carl, perhaps we can see each other - both of us in Gauteng; I am in Pretoria and you are in Johannesburg. I am very keen to more involved with this wonderful technology!)

If you guys need any help with a shoot/event: extra XL1 / camera operator / hands, just shout, I am keen to learn more and more and more!

Hello from South Africa

Hi everyone,

My name is Barry and I am currently at Film school in South Africa [ http://www.filmdramaschool.co.za ]. I shoot a 5 minuter next week monday using a DVX100 (pal version) and would like some tips for the shoot. Don't know if I should ask here or in another Topic Section so I will wait for your response (so I don't make anyone upset for posting in a wrong Topic Section, and for being a newb, haha).

The sooner the better (my paper is actually due tomorrow! [monday the 25th at 9am - that's Sunday night at 11pm for Americas]).

ok, so maybe i'll just ask really quick and you can send me an email or reply..... =)

Script location: Exterior: Golf Course <-- see my problem! ;)

Actors: 2 White, 1 Black, 1 Light Brown

School Lighting Package:
2 2k blondes & stands
2 1k redheadds & stands
2 Black Flags (1 4x4, 1 2x4)
cables
sandbags
silver reflector boards (4x4)
2 C Stands

Where can I find websites/articles on shooting in daylight?
What material to use to build a scrim frame?
Should I use a .3 ND as well as the ND filter provided with the camera?
Can I shoot this with just reflectors, ND and a home built scrim?
Anyone know of a good scene file setting to use for this type of location?

and is there a Tutorial section here? or Tips section for lighting sceneries, characters etc?

THANK YOU!! Hope to hear from someone REALLY soon!! haha

Greatful,
Barry

Barry, do you know Ryley or James Carroll? They were seniors at AFDA...

Me, I did Hons at Wits. Now I'm in LA, working on weird things like titles for Borat and earning dollars so that I can make a killer camera rig to take home to SA and shoot something cool...

Cheers
