hi justin, this is wierd, but you and erik are the reason I am a filmmaker. I am going to UARTS in september for film, and I am in preproduction of my feature length film right now.
if I hadn’t seen indymogul back in summer of 07 I would have never started making movies for fun, if I hadn’t done the filmfights challenge of march 08, “Nursery Rhyme horror short” I would never have started making movies as a career. I just want to thank you so much for everything you have given me. I am eternally greatful
Just exported a DVD of the short and finally watched it on a standard TV. What I learned:
The 30p-ness is pretty noticeable and irritating when the camera is panning on the tripod, or whenever I sped up any of the footage. Hopefully color correction and adding some grain can smooth that over.
Amen brother! I’ve been thinking about these very same points a lot lately. On one hand I feel like pumping out a ton of short internet videos is really good “film making practice”, but sometimes I worry that I won’t be able to make the leap to features. Like I’ve been training for the 100 meter dash for 3 years, and even though I can sprint like a mofo, I’d be helpless to run a marathon. GOOD LUCK MAN! Can’t wait to see NOTP!
