Re: 20 years of np2k

Holy shit, I remember reading these comments after watching the events unfold On Sept. 11, 2001. I was getting my oldest ready for school and turned on the T.V. just after the first plane hit...and just before the second. My kid stayed home from school that day. https://web.archive.org/web/200207281...

Re: 20 years of np2k

Seeing as I've met absolutely none of you in person, I could possibly swing an over-niter in L.A. depending on timing.

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #60 - "Lost Highway" (1997)

Now I get why it's so long, It had to be that long just to break it down and explain it. I need to go watch it again because I'm pretty sure I wrote it off after I saw it as I only remember bits and pieces.

I enjoyed this movie for the most part, but it fell a little flat for a minute near the end. I like weird shit.

No, but seriously I want to know when you see shitty VFX.
There was a couple of dodgy driving plates in House Of Cards, clearly they need you back!

Hah, I was just laughing at that. Some physics defying freeway action. Like passing a traffic jam on an infinite off ramp.

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

If you can make it through ANY film without some sort of error, it's an achievement in itself, so I wouldn't worry about it - 95% of your audience won't notice anyway. Audio is still - and always will be - one of the largest obstacles no one will ever warn you about. Best of luck! I'm just going to...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #61 - "Master of the Flying Guillotine" (1976)

I totally remember this movie. There was a television station that would play wushu cinema on Sunday mornings when I was a teen. Breakfast and kungfu. I actually just had a client mention this very movie not too long ago, asking if I'd seen it, but I couldn't recall it at the time. I have a (*cough*...

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

Once again, all of the footage is in place. I still made a rookie mistake, but it's just a barely noticeable wardrobe thing so we're going to pretend I didn't and call it good. Audio is more of a pain in the ass than I'd like it to be, time consuming mostly, but that's also due to my lack of knowled...

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

Heh, editing out the last bit and I notice a fatal continuity error. No headphones after putting in headphones in a prior scene, critical to the story. Fuck. Re-shoot planned for Monday, weather permitting. Otherwise, editing is all caught back up to where it was, titles are fixed, and I'm working o...

Principal photography has officially wrapped!!!! I have all of the shots I need to put out a completed short film. I'm still picking up the pieces from my hard drive failure like re-downloading and installing all of my fonts that I used in my title sequences so I can put those back together, but my ...

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

Should not have joked about it. My main HDD crashed and burned, fully. I still have all of the footage and audio, I backed them up on multiple drives, and I was smart enough to backup my Premiere project files on a nearly weekly basis so I only lost about two days of editing. That is unless I can re...

Just kidding.

That'd be funny though.

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

Pretty sure I have at least one of every shot...Under exposed, over exposed, soft, poorly framed, ect. with some really nice shots thrown in for aesthetics. I've rearranged the timeline numerous times to see what works best to move the story along and think I have it worked out the best I can. Still...

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

Two years for an 11 min. short film. In that time I have: Re-Roofed my house by myself (mostly), leveled my back yard, built a shed, scraped and painted (some of) my house, dealt with a car accident and replacing my wife's car, re-financed my house, driven to L.A. and back, and kept my job and fami...

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

Well, I'm just waiting on one small sequence of shots with one actor. I'm contemplating just throwing on a wig, dying my beard (temp), setting up the shots, and having the wife hit record. There's no close up shots so I think I can pull it off. Otherwise, the film is mostly edited. I keep going back...

Re: NP2K Films proposal

I had another idea along the same lines of total group involvement, but a little larger scale...sort of. Basically, we develop a central theme that any one who chooses to can write a ten page script around, the idea being a sort of anthology, which then can have the story lines intertwine at some po...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #59 - "Blade of the Immortal" (2017)

I remember watching Star Blazers when I was young but I didn't really get into anime until my buddy showed me Ninja Scroll. Then he started showing me things like Wicked City and the such. Then I had kids, who really got into Studio Ghibli. Then anime like Tri-Gun, FlCl, Princess Mononoke, Ect. I ev...
