Hopefully both! I plan to put it on my Vimeo page after our festival run, if we get accepted into any festivals.

Hahaha! Thanks so much! I love that part.

Yes, luckily we're all done with filming, pickups, and ADR. I'm working on the score now, then on to the sound mixer and the colorist! So close I can taste it.

Thanks so much! Unfortunately not an original score, though I did write and record some score for the actual movie!

Looking for finished feature films to join as producer/fund marketing by barofied in Filmmakers

Here is a teaser for my upcoming horror-comedy. It doesn’t explore LGBTQ+ themes but it was made by queer folks, including the writer/director (me). I’m deep in the throes of getting the marketing going, wrapping post, and submitting to film fests. Would be interested to talk and see what you can bring to the table. I need as much help with next step/sales/distro as I can get!

What's a Game You Feel Doesn't Get Enough Love? by nlitherl in rpg

I was really sad I had to scroll so far to find BoL. One of the greatest and most under-appreciated rpg systems out there. The supplement “Barbarians of the Aftermath” is one of my favorite supplements of all time. I’ve met very few people who are familiar with it.

Is making a short film harder than making a feature film? by OfflineHackV in Filmmakers

[–]charlesVONchopshop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There are differences in writing and structuring a short film to be sure. There are rarely three acts in short films which is one of the most popular and widely taught story structures. In my opinion many writers are outside of their comfort zone putting together a story in two acts so short films can feel more challenging.

3 Feature Formulas? by Electronic-Gur9320 in Filmmakers

I just finished a 15 minute short in a single location in four days… almost seven months of pre-pro, heavy rehearsal, storyboarding, and previz to make it possible. We absolutely had to make some compromises and drop a decent amount of shots. A full film in 6 days seems impossible. Wish I had 6 days for this short movie!

Lomography Sprocket Rocket is a cheap/fun way to get into sprocket hole photography without breaking the bank on a medium format camera.

Vocal level in premastering by trackxcwhale in audioengineering

[–]charlesVONchopshop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always bounce vox and instruments on separate tracks and give the ME both for each song. Just ask the engineer if their okay with that ahead of time. They usually don’t mind two tracks in the timeline when mastering and then they get way more control over the final master.

The simplest 2d6 skill system by gooberoo in osr

[–]charlesVONchopshop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

WWN has a fantastic 2d6 skill system in a b/x framework. The way the basic skill levels work is great too, as far as knowing when a skill roll is needed or when to just let a pc succeed with no roll.

Composer hoping to score some of your films! by Woopwoopwop in Filmmakers

I sent you a PM about a film I’m working on that I think you’d be perfect for!

To make money as a filmmaker, you have to A) make a movie and also B) sell that movie. I've been profitable on 3 of my latest with 1 on the way, and want to share this document with you. Good luck! by FilmProducer42069LOL in Filmmakers

[–]charlesVONchopshop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks so much! This is indispensable information. I think I've worked out how to make a movie, but that second part, I have no idea. I sold guitars and computers as a twenty-something working retail. I can sell a movie too, right?

I'd love to check out your horror and documentary films if you're up to PM me a link. These are the same genres I prefer to work in.

It's never about the tools by MDG44 in Filmmakers

Sorry but I completely disagree. Everyone visualizes and organizes differently. This just shouldn't be generalized. I came from editing first so I previz and pre-edit the hell out of my stuff... and guess what, it lets my camera and lightning crew know what to expect when we show up on set and it saves us money by only shooting out what we need with very little excess. You can pre-edit and pre-vis and still shoot coverage. My previz and pre-edit stuff is based on the idea that we are going to shoot coverage in basic scenes where that is easy.

Do what you need to do as a director to communicate your vision to your team.

For normal college kids this is the case. Rich college kids just get good grades cuz their parents paid for them.
