Alternative to Final Cut? [11 Jan 2010|03:55am]

bastardsun
I am actually an actor looking to revamp my reel. Is there any editing program out there comparable to Final Cut Pro which may be more affordable?...and good for a PC?

Best case scenario, any free, downloadable stuff?

Thank you for any input/advice.

Want to be in the Grammys! [21 Dec 2008|11:03pm]

arisingstarlet
Hey guys, I work at Filmaka and thought you would be interested in this new competition. Filmaka is funding all the productions and the winners could be shown in part during the Grammy Awards! We have several songs that we've already cleared the rights to, which are posted on the competition page. All you have to do is write a 2 to 5 page pitch telling us the story and look of what your music video would be like. If we select your pitch, we'll give you $7500 to produce and direct your music video. If you have an idea for a great script, but not much directing experience, we can pair you with an experienced director who will bring your pitch to life.

PITCHES ARE DUE BY MIDNIGHT ON JANUARY 2, 2009. Go to Filmaka.com and look for the box about the Lincoln Grammy competition for more information. I hope you'll decide to submit!

SUBMISSIONS OPEN for DC Shorts Film Festival 2009 [02 Dec 2008|10:26am]

dcshorts
Submissions are now open for the 2009 edition of the famed DC Shorts Film Festival! Visit the updated web site at http://dcshorts.com

DC Shorts turns the spotlight on truly independent short films, created by new and established filmmakers in an era when the art of filmmaking is opening to all. We select films from every genre for our competition screenings — with a special focus on films created by metropolitan Washington, DC-based directors and writers. After each screening, filmmakers have the opportunity to speak to the audience as part of a moderated panel.

In 2008, DC Shorts reviewed more than 750 entries from around the globe. We selected 103 short films for screenings at 8 showcases during the competition weekend of September 11-14, 2008, with each show featuring an average of ten short films. Since a major focus of the event is the inclusion of filmmakers, many of the films were represented by the more than 108 filmmakers in attendance from 8 countries. More than 2,600 people attended the screenings.

DC Shorts gives ALL ENTIRES feedback -- a point which impressed MovieMaker Magazine to name us as "one of 20 festivals worth an entry fee," AND as "one of the leading film festivals" in the country.

THE EARLYBIRD DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 15, 2009.  Submission fees go up after that date -- so enter now and save!

I look forward to seeing your new works!

- Jon Gann
 Festival Director



PS: If you have a film of Asian or European interest, check out the new EuroAsia Shorts Film Festival at http://euroasiashorts.com  Low fees, unique themes, and screenings at embassies and cultural centers throughout Washington DC.

Location scouting [27 Oct 2008|08:15am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Any of you New Yorkers have access to a roof with a view of the city? My friend’s video has a scene where the lead character is viewing the city and making a decision--nothing too disruptive. The shoot date for the roof scene would be November 1.

Has anyone had any experience shooting in a diner or, more importantly, a school in any of the five boroughs on the weekend? I'm a college student enrolled in a film program and need a school for a location for a film I have to make for a class this semester. My producer is going to be calling around, but I just wanted to see if anyone had any successful experiences in a specific school before. It doesn't matter what level (elementary, high school, etc.) it is, really. Just something either free or low-cost because obviously I don't have much of a budget.

8th Annual Coney Island Film Festival

Online advance tickets now onsale! We strongly advise advance ticket purchase to avoid sellouts! We do not charge an extra service charge for advance tickets.

8th Annual Coney Island Film Festival, September 26-28, 2008

Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY -- The 8th annual installment of the Coney Island Film Festival hits the shores of Coney Island from Friday, September 26th through Sunday, September 28th. This year's festival features one hundred twenty five films from around the world; a stunning array of high and low-brow fare, as diverse as the neighborhood it represents. Subjects range from the profound to the profane, showcasing the independent spirit and irreverent nature of the one and only Coney Island.

This year's centerpiece film is Peter LiPera's, Save Coney Island. Working with a small crew for over a year, director/cinematographer Peter LiPera paints an intimate portrait of Coney Island's first annual last season. SAVE CONEY ISLAND shows a group of boardwalk friends' journey over the course of a year as they try to preserve what they can within the ever-changing, ever-fading, atmosphere of Coney Island.

Man BItes God Music Video Competition [09 Sep 2008|12:40am]

manbitesgod
Thought you guys might be interested in this...

Australian band, Man Bites God, are bribing aspiring film makers with a chance to win AU$500 by making a music video featuring a Man Bites God song of their choice.

“A number of fans have made their own music videos for the band over the last few years and we wanted to recognise their efforts with a competition”, explains the band’s drummer and professional video director Chris Tomkins. “We’re not expecting anything amazingly polished for the $500 prize, we just want to see what great ideas are out there.”

The competition runs until November and is a simple as choosing a Man Bites God song, making a video and uploading to Man Bites God’s YouTube channel in order to be judged in November.

The band are looking for anything from surreal to literal, live-action, machinema, animation or some other technique that hasn’t been invented yet.

Details of the competition are available on the band's website http://www.manbitesgod.com or by watching the video on their youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/manbitesgod.
