[ mood | creative ]

Hello everyone, I just joined the community a moment ago. My name's Amanda, I'm 16, and I'm from London. I'm interested in making some short amateur movies, and it'd be great to possibly get some advice here about how to go about it. :)

introduction... a late one at that [04 Mar 2006|03:57pm]

Well, i think i forgot to introduce myself when i joined. So here it goes.

I'm Jeff, 20, and i'm a director/writer/actor.

Right now i have three film projects in the works. One is a cop drama, one is a horror/comedy, and another is an dramatic action.

FYI, i'm looking for anyone who knows the City of Bloomington, Indiana really well, especially the University campus that is there. I need a location scout for my films. Any help would be great.

I think that's it, have a good one everyone!

I am a Web Designer... but am very new to the Live journal idea...
However, I have also become very interested in making my Web work more multimedia... & consequently have become much more interested in doing amateur film & plays...

I am part of the pagan community & aware that there is little film work done by that actual community... or plays, really... my intention is to get others in that community interested in getting out their cam corders or creating plays for gatherings or festivals... something done at a grass roots level... I want to do things as simply as I can hoping to encourage that interest in others...

I am a Mac user... I have IMovie... and am surprised at how much flexibility it has... However, I hope I may eventually be able to get a true film editing program in time... yet, simple is important... However, I do use Photoshop a good deal & like to play around with animation... so, simplicity can be a relative thing...

However... as this should be a first hello...

Looking forward to being part of this!

"Newbie" [08 Apr 2005|09:47pm]

I just joined the community tonight. I'm "Katie" (the design company I co-run/own is KT Designs). I'm 25 and currently work in Hollywood. I'm a freelance wardrobe and costume designer. My up and coming project starts on April 18th and is a Cinamax movie. Gotta love the high paying soft-core porn jobs...

I work on a lot of small or no budget indie films as well as the big studio features. My last job was an indie family feature called "Light Years Away" Talk about an out there movie! Our cast consisted of grown child actors and strippers. The lead was played by Chris Knight (Peter Brady) and our villian was Eric Roberts. It was an interesting movie to say the lest.

Words of advice to indie film makers... Don't give your wardrober a budget of $500 and ask them to cloth 40 people with 3 costume changes each! It can not be done for so little unless you are willing to help rip off the local Goodwill.

Hey guys!

i've just started to write scripts, this is my first.

Macclesfield is near where I live its grey, and Joy Division came from here...explains all. Most depressing town ever.

It helps to listen to the songs named in each scenes as you read each scene to get the atmosphere.


Please Comment.

Love Always,

Hi i'm new. My name is Jaz, i'm 14 and i came here to ask some questions because i plan on filming a movie that i am currently writing.

Well here's my question:
What is a good computer program to edit movies or how do i edit movies and put all the scenes together? I really hope someone can help me out. All i have is Windows Movie Maker and that's really crappy and you can't do much with it. =/

[ mood | blah ]

Hmmm...well I am bored, so I thought I would find another community to join. Really I have nothing to do! Anyway I like to make movies with my friends. I am but the wee age of fourteen however. So it is certainly not professional. We are making a fanatasy film called Hearts on Fire right now. (the title is from the band Hammerfall. I certainly wouldnt want to steal any credit. They are a glorious power metal band hailing from Sweden). I don't do any of the technical work. Thats all my pal Gabrielle. But anyway its hardcore I tell you. We made a music video for Magic Dance by David Bowie. And also we are making an Avril Lavinge video (mockery of course!).

" The Diary of Disappearing " [10 Mar 2005|11:19am]

Check out this film at the following link ~


Orlando, Florida

This little film was a school project.

Each team of students were given 36 hours to write everything...script, music, etc....memorize lines, film and edit it.

And each team was given a prop and one script line that they had to weave into the storyline. This team was given the line, "I think you're loosing it." and the prop they had to include was a blue flashing stress ball.

I think the *team* did AWESOME within their timeframe.

Comments please ???

Hey! I'm planning on buying a camcorder with my christmas money. I've narrowed it down to either the Cannon ZR90 or the Panasonic PV-GS2. Which of these is better?

Recruit god dammit!! Well since no one is doing anything yet I might as well put the first couple scenes I wrote to my first movie I wrote about a few years ago. Not exactly in perfect script form, but this is how I write. Also the image in this journal is my inspiration so I put it there. You want to change it tell me to what. I like the Kids in the Hall so I just put them there.

Well, hey. New member, making me... the third?

Anyway, I'm Simon, I'm 19, I'm an actor for the most part, but also a script-writer and occasional director. More for stage, but I do work on films occasionally. Current project is called Memorial, and it's a short film dealing with teenagers responses to death and loss.

Yeah, that's me. The majority of what's written of the script (not in proper format, but with my directorial comments in) can be found at dreamermorpheus

I would post some of my work, but the thing is we need more members and I need someone to help me out with the design of this thing because I'm not all that good at Journal making. Movies, maybe...Journals, not so much. So if anyone wants to help me just post a comment and try to recruit more members. I don't care the second you join you can post your work I'll critique or I'll help with ideas or anything. Just gotta get this thing moving.
