    hi sonnyboo! it's been a long time since I been on the site. I hope all of your projects are going well!

    I'm still working on getting more technical and building a craft, but here is one of my first shorts.

    It's a black and white silent short.

    feedback would be much appreciated!

    thanks, and I hope you're doing well!

    I found it interesting that you didn't get much out of the Dov S-S Simens seminar as well. . . .
    Did you get that pm I sent you a week ago, sonnyboo?

    hello ross. i am an aspiring film maker. seeing all the experience you have you might be able to answer my question. SHould i really go to film school? or should i use the money, make a feature myself and see where that takes me? Do people with a college degree have a better chance at getting hired in hollywood? thanks

    Hey thanks for the reply.
    I was also thinking using a classical music piece, say Mozart. Does this fall under public domain? And if so do I need to do anything say site it in the credits?

Spielberg has edited two movies non-linear in a computer! He himself vowed never to do such a thing, but with TINTIN and also WAR HORSE, Steven has come over to the darkside. Now I understand TINTIN, as that is a CGI movie, but WAR HORSE is live action, shot on film.

Spielberg resisted the new school approach to editing, which...

Iím doing some minor writing of late. Whether itís scribbling on a notepad at work, typing in Google Docs on the laptop waiting on a render, what matters most is that words from my head are being committed to some form that others might see and eventually say/shoot.

Iíve got a few ideas tumbling over. One compels me because I have never attempted a process shot, that is a shot in a car that appears to be...

Slowly the wheels turn. Already got 1 rejection and 5 confirmations of playing one of the two TV series in various markets. No offense to the Population 17,000 market, but Pittsburgh picking up FRAMELINES represents a gain of about 300,000. Pittsburgh is also a much bigger film town. Weíre weeks away from a premiere in Pennsylvania, and possibly CLIP FRAMES as well.

I suspect that many of these packages...

After over $100 in shipping and over 50 packages, I suddenly find myself with less to do for the briefest of moments. I'm taking a weekend off, more or less. I spent today cleaning, and doing a major rearrangement of furniture in the mancave of Rossdonia.

I have many docs on my computer(s), usually transcribed from handwritten notes on one of several notepads. In it are many ideas from THINGS TO DO, to lines...

Focus is the key. Staying on track and not letting things help you stray from your chosen path; this presents the most common mistake in getting lost. Even on a bad day right now, I still get a lot done. Whether it's for FRAMELINES or CLIP FRAMES, I digitize a tape, synchronize 4 cameras on a multicam timeline, or I edit. My nose presses firmly to the grindstone right now.

And I'm teaching.
