The Skeleton Dance

The Skeleton Dance

I had to copy & paste in browser add. It should have been a direct link. Whatever, it's worth the copy & paste.

Having problems?

If you haven't been eating right, sometimes there are, uh, problems. Here is a review of the best product to clean out the pipes.

Video Tape Dubbing

I need a crash course in what it means to dub 1/2 and 3/4 reels and DVD's. I'm not completely in the dark on it. I have a general understanding but I would like to know what it means to reassure myself I know what I'm talking about. Can someone give me a detailed definition of Video dubbing and DVD dubbing. Thank You.

Going to the master film program in NYC?


i am currently attending the film program in CSULB. I am applying to NYU and Columbia for their master program in production. I wonder if anyone who is attending or had attended either program could help introduce the schools from a student's point of view. I've read many reviews about these school from, but somehow i need feedback that's more personal than that. Such as the student/student or student/teacher relation; the artistic direction; the life in NYU... so on and so on. I notice many people worry about the tuition, but very often people talk about how to get in or share their experiences of going through the process. Hope I can hear from many of you and some in depth views =)

Film professors

Completely off topic, but it's been bothering me since i graduated. I thought you film pro's might have insight/empathy. Yeha so i majored in psychology in college, and took as many film classes as we had.

One of the classes I took was Cinematic Auteurs, Oliver Stone. The course itself was interesting, but my professor was complete crap. As he would lecture it came to my attention that he had a small grasp on what he was talking about, he would make comments about aspects of a movie that seemed totally irrelevant, and distracting from what was really happening within the film (not going to get into vocab of specifics i think you peeps know what i mean). So i did some research to find out what made this guy qualified to teach this course. I was appalled. He attended a summer film course, in which he made a 9 minute documentary, oh yeah and he had degree in english. Now don't get me wrong english is cool. I speak it, and occasionally write it. But i hardly think that this a qualifying resume to teach film at the college level. Oh and he was a prick on top of it, but that's neither here or there. Ok i'm done venting.
i am the muffin man.

Silly Sci Fi Channel Series: Ghost HUnters

Can somebody tell me what cameras they use to film their content, NOT the little handycams the investigators use. I am talking about the off-camera cameras. I think I might have seen a bit of progressive/frame type motion but I am not sure.
Interesting, if true. And interesting anyway.

trailer music Man On The Moon (not REM!)

Hey, I'm looking (kind of urgent) to the name of the song in the trailer of Man On The Moon. No,not the theatrical trailer with the song of REM playing, but the one that is on the dvd.

The trailer can be found here:

It's the song at the beginning. I recognize it, they use it quite often for trailers, but I really can't find it.

Any feedback is appreciated!

OT: Cutting Edge - The Magic of Editing

I just noticed this show on Encore tonight. All about hollywood editing stories, looks to be interesting. Looks like some history, some great stories, some famous ones too. I am recording it for viewing tomorrow.

Posts: 10 - site for the director of Sideways and About Schmidt

I recently put this together as a comprehensive website including interviews, pictures, and multimedia pertaining to director Alexander Payne and his films (Sideways, About Schmidt, Election, Citizen Ruth). As a filmmaker myself, I find his films very inspiring.

I am in the process of adding more information, and there is a message board as well, so please check it out! Thank you very much for your support.

Internet helped child police identify hotel

I couldn't think of a better subject line, sorry.

The Toronto police posted an image gallery online of photos taken in child pornography sessions and asked the net public to identify where the place was so that they could begin an investigation. They got hundreds of tips and two identified the same hotel and based upon this the hotel was identified.

Article here:

What I find interesting is that the gallery is still up here and you can view it. What is really creepy is that, understandably for reasons of privacy, they cloned out the images of the victims though not completely so that you can make out that some poor child (and possibly perpetrator) was in the center of the photograph but isn't now. I don't know how else to voice it. The victim has been 'erased'.

Still, very upsetting for those of you who are parents or who care for children.

Olympus P400 dye-sub printer

Anyone know a reputable web site that sells the paper and dye ribbons for cheap?

Thanks. I love this printer....but it's freakishly expensive to buy supplies.
