Q and Erik: Music, Wounds, 50 Cent, and Video Requests
Primetime TV has left us all bored and stupid. So gather the family around the computer and tune into this episode of Q and Erik; you’ll learn about ballistics gel, fake mustaches and cool places to find pictures and music for your videos. And if you want to be like our friend Sanity Source and get some screen time on Indy Mogul, then send us a video request!!!!!
In this episode of BFX, Erik shows us how to make a miniature spaceship that YOU can fit inside (with a little Indy Mogul magic of course) and fly through space with! And it’s all for under $20!! That’s less than a set of Little Mermaid Drapes.
Always wanted that shot that stays stable on your actor and whacks out the background? Of course you have! Now, thanks to our friends, John and Mark, you can build your very own SnorriCam! (via Indy Mogul - DIY filmmaking)
Q and Erik: Zombie Suits, Bullet Dust, Swords, and BFX Talk
Sure, the radio is basically dead, but thanks to Indy Mogul, you can still bask in the warmth of the age old fireside chat with Erik Beck in the latest episode of “Q and Erik”. Dressing zombies, building swords, running away from bullets? Erik covers it all, he even gives you the inside scoop of who and what’s behind BFX!!! (via Indy Mogul - DIY filmmaking)
What can you make with some duct tape, old cothes, a fake head, and some newspaper. If your answer was a pile of old clothes and newspaper with a roll of duct tape and a fake head on the top, then you need to watch this video. Using just those ingredients, Erik builds a life size stunt dummy. (via Indy Mogul - DIY filmmaking)
But seriously. Even though I barely used my myspace account anyways (since facebook lured me away) I can’t help but feel violated. You really start to feel like this chunk of digital real estate belongs to you, but apparently we are all just renting. And if you happen to live in the myspace projects, just know your landlord is a real jerk. He’ll evict your ass with out giving you any warning or reason.
This is the only email I received:
"Your MySpace account has been deleted for violating our Terms of Service. This is usually due to one of the following:
* Nude images, sexually suggestive or violent photos * Covering our banner ads with HTML * Harassing other users * You do not meet the minimum age requirement * Spamming the classifieds, forums, bulletins, or other sections of the site * Attempting to artificially inflate scores * Scripting the site
Your account cannot be restored. If you choose to return to MySpace, please follow the rules.”
The only thing I can think of is someone hacked my account and started spamming with it. I’ve had this happen to many friends, but they didn’t get their accounts deleted. Just yelled at by there friends to change their password.
I’m not going back. Any myspace exclusive friends can find my on facebook. They are not sell outs and account deleters, and they let me drink beer in their offices.
Q and Erik: Bald Caps, BFX Gear, Location Shoots, Halloween
Like FDR before him, Erik discusses bald people, shooting in new locations, android masks, clapboards, Dysfunctional films, our upcoming Halloween specials, and what equipment he uses to shoot BFX. Tune in every Thursday for a new episode of “Q and Erik”. (via Indy Mogul - DIY filmmaking)
