There’s a big difference in being an artist and being an artistic jerk. You can be passionate about what you do and not venomus in displaying your ire. Rev has a good point, Blunty is a leader, a figure head, he shouldn’t act like some pissy little twit because others…[Read more]

We’re forced to set examples for a group of people that’s mostly 15 year olds. Many of these kids look up to you and respect you. Perhaps it’s not ideal, but that’s the situation we are faced with.

What are you talking about, California is the world! Australia, that’s where Sea World is, right? Just south of Carlsbad (LegoLand)???
Okay so you’re passionate about your art, that can be seen in your films and you want Todd to get the message (if…[Read more]

Stop whining about those copyright and go make a movie.
It’s not about the whining, it’s just the precautionary approach, making sure that we don’t infringe copyright and trademark laws, given that our entries may end up being included in a DVD that is to be sold for profit. I’ll let someone else go in depth about…
Let Mother England first take care of Prince Harry and then worry about the affairs abroad.

I also looked for “greenscreen” at Ebay but I only found this :).

I can’t make my own…My parents wouldn’t be too keen on me blowing up the house!
Well, start small and work your way up. Start by blowing up the shed, your dog, or maybe your garage. Your parents will warm up to the idea eventually.
And, besides W.E., you can always make them look bigger in ‘post’…
I’m really not sure if I can help… offer the whiny range you may need but I recorded a test and sent that to your email address. If I’m close enough for your needs, let me know.
Just did a quick search on ebay and found the Vegas Movie Studio for well under a hundred bucks…. if that helps…
You should check out ‘the making of the viking five’ as it deals with some green/blue screen issues. After Effects chroma-keying isn’t that great, lot of pixelation around the edges of my test subject and holes in my foreground items (like you’ve experienced with your test). The best tool/software I’ve tried is called dvmattepro which is awesome.…[Read more]
Hey, pretty nice!!
I especially liked the shot down the corridor as the minifig climbed up and in.
The legs were the only bad part… distracting part… if you moved the camera in a bit so that most, if not all the legs were out of frame it wouldn’t look like a dolphin kick as he climbed…
Great work though!
Hey, great idea…
Favorite movie(s): The Incredibles, House of Flying Daggers
Favorite song(s): Pretty much anything on Switchfoots’ album ‘Beautiful Letdown’ (but if I had to choose: Meant to Live)

There’s also a good discussion on the subject a bit further down in this folder… look for the title: “Highest Quality Image Format?”
Read through for some good information.

It was pretty good! I even backed it up so I could watch it again to see what you did. The angle concealed the arms mostly, and let the motion of the legs convey the…[Read more]
The program you use to import/save to the computer… check to see if it has an export option or a pulldown menu when you ‘save as’ because, generally you can change format settings that way. Read through the ‘Highest Quality Image Format’ thread in this folder (hardware and software) as there’s quite a bit of information on different formats and…[Read more]
Well, what are the formats supported by ‘Elements’? It may be that you have to import your footage via one program, convert it into the format that is supported by Premiere and then import it into that program for editing…. or get a camera that is supported by the software.
I have to admit Josh’s 2nd entry is a lot like hitting your funny-bone. It hurts, but you can’t stop laughing about it.
Now about voting… do we get to use punch cards?

Just a thought… you might do an upper-body shot with the climbing being conveyed through the arms/body motion…
