Jun 16, 2006 moldyman link
With my new Quad Core, I finaly have the equipment I need to start making movies. This is long term since I only know some basics and still need to learn, but ideas in clude:

- Nation War movie (Mmmm... furball)
- Deneb Run dramatiozed movie (Maybe a three minute short instead of thirty thhree minutes)

Any pilots (or teachers in the ways of movie production), please sign up below. Filming will begin soonish.

Because I don't think you're his nemesis anymore. That kinda happens when you like, leave for a few weeks and all.

Count me in to detect and point out the cliches (fighters driving headfirst into a 'roid, lines like "Death before dishonor", that sort of thing) so the movies end up a lot less amateurish.

Moldy, the best tip I can give you is to take a LOT of footage. The more you have to work with in the editing stage, the better. That said, don't include everything. Attention spans are short nowadays and you don't want a movie that drags on (look at my first one). So pick your best shots to use. Also, you're going to want to have a storyboard to give your movie some kind of outline before you shoot it. This way, you know what kind of shots you need ahead of time.

A little trick I like to use is to pick out what music you're going to use ahead of time, then set up your storyboard according to that. This can help you to get a good image in your head of what you want to do.

I am new to VO (account is now four days old), but not to video editing and production. I use iMovieHD on an iMac G5. I coach football at the high school level and have created several highlight films and short clips (obviously of a sports-related nature.)

However, in addition to being a jock, I'm also a geek and interested in fan and fan-developed films of various genres. I think I'd be a reasonably valuable addition to the project.

Feel free to email me at or speak to me if you see me online (My current pilot is named "Nigel the Indecently Dressed" of the Itani Nation.)

Even if we can't work together, this sounds like a great project, and I'm very interested in the outcome.

Still muddling through the self teaching process...

Hold please while your operator is being trained

Hehe, my Dad used to be friends with the person who invented that music.

I'm in ONLY if you need a really weird accent. The americans always comment on it, specially since they can understand me perfectly in spite of it.

Sounds like fun (if I had a machine that could handle VO and vid capture at the same time I might have tried too... alas). And I won't be half way around the world again for the forseeable future, so no more problems like I had working with Ghost (sorry about that).

mmm... one of these days I might try patching the s-video out on my video card to the s-video in on my encoder card.. anyone think it'd work?

Feedback loop... *BOOM*

(Ok. I don't know. I _do_ know that plugging the soundcard line-out to the microphone port does bad things, though. :D )

I think, if anything, I'll just do a ten minute video with clips of cool combat scenes. I'll start spectating fights after I make an alt to do so.

I shall call him... The Cameraman!
