    Hey, I have made a few under a minute clips before mostly just getting the feel of things. But now i wanted to make one between 5 and ten minutes. I am either gonna do vioce overs or subtitles, which do you think would be better? I have a Nikon Coolpix 2500 camera but I am having a hard time getting it close to the sets without moving. So far i’ve been using a tripod and just setting the set really close to the edge of a table. This has worked good but i still can’t get it close to enough to the set. Well thanks for your help, and I hope to get this done in a few weeks so you guys can see it.



    i think voices would be much better. That way you can never take your eyes away from the action to look at some words at the bottom of the screen.

    If you don’t like your camera, i suggest getting a Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000. The retail price is about 80 dollars, but you can probably find the same thing for much cheaper on Ebay.

    Oh yeah, i don’t suggest going for a five minute movie yet. Before I made the man with the cane, i actually wrote a whole script for a five minute movie. I started to film, but I had such lack of experience that i couldn’t even get past forty seconds! 😳

    So i made a few minute and over-a-minute shorts, and now i feel comfortable. I hope you understand what i’m trying to say.




    thank you dan, i was wanting to go with voices but i have one question about them. Do you need a program to insert sounds? cause i’m using videomach and as far as I’ve seen you can’t insert sounds to places throughut the movie. they always start at the begining.

    To get your camera closer, you might want to try duct taping it down to the set wherever you want it to be. You could also use scotch tape, sticky tak, or anything else of an adhesive nature.
