Swirling in the Oceano

September 6, 2008

I am unsure what path my future will take… where will I go, what will I do?  My camcorder/editing situation is not at it’s brightest, and I am heavily considering returning the camcorder, the JVC Everio GZ-HD7, because it shoots to HD and saves to .tod.   Premiere Pro 1.0, my current NLE, is less than desirable as well, because I have had a/v out of sync troubles with it.  Who knows what will be the solution?  God does.

A friend recommended this camera (the friend was joking btw,)

Check out the RED camera:

I have looked into Final Cut Pro as well, (or Final Cut Studio,) and it looks promising.  But I have not done all my research.  I am pretty sure I can convert my files through Cyberlink BD solution, with PowerDirector, to FullHD, HD SP, or SD (720×480.)  So, converting with HD is possible, but editing is still a problem.  So, the different problems stack on eachother and the tower of cards falls again and again as I pull out a card from the below.

So, with all these options, ideas, hopes, possibilities – my future – and other’s desires, I am swirling in an ocean of choices, hoping to find my way out.  Oh God, send an albatross.

Who knows what will happen next?  I ask for your prayer, and I look foward to the days when I will be holding the camcorder in hand, acting and filming with others, editing, premiering, posting…

God bless and thanks for listening.

P.S. I do not ask for sympathy.  I do not ask for donations.  I do not require your help.  I humbly request prayer and understanding, and greatly appreciate any suggestions or ideas you have to give.  Thanks.

New Film Ideas

July 11, 2008

This evening a new idea came on how to extend the short film “Is This Love?” (not yet filmed.)  With this extended beginning sequence you will get a better awareness on the beliefs of the two main characters and (hopefully) get some background story on both of them, as well as setting up the film better for the climax.

Besides that it there are some other ideas floating around, not so much ideas as concepts.  The difference (in this situation) being that ideas would imply actually having some sort of film plot or overall concept, whereas film concepts would be “Oh, wouldn’t it be cool to make a sci-fi film!” or “Hey, we have to film here“.

So, anyhow, whether they be ideas or concepts, or some of both, they are circulating around some.  For instance, recently I have seen that others are/have done sci-fi (science fiction) films, and it would be really neat to do a good sci-fi film, totally unique and more realistic than “Star Wars” or “Star Trek”.  Also, I have brainstormed with a friend a little about doing film about brother inventors.  Filming in old rural towns is a wonderful location solution, and such buildings as the Whipple Company Store & Museum (www.whipplecompanystore.com) would provide an interesting backdrop for a story (or at least to be included in the film at some point.)

After looking at some success stories featuring the Adobe products I can get pumped up and scared at the same time.  “Wow, look, you can make your film dreams come true right at home on your own desktop computer”, and “Oh, yikes.  You are mentioning things I have no idea of how to meet” and “They have a whole post-production crew”.  So you are confronted both with the beauty and mystery of the challenge – the hope and the fear.

I am looking very keenly on a certain model for the HD camcorder.  I know which one I will most likely buy, and I may make the purchase very soon.  News on that later.

Looking at the Adobe CS3 Production Premium (http://www.adobe.com/education/products/creativesuite/production/,) which would be a great solution but would mean a lot more saving up again.  ;D  Oh well, that’s OK.  A different option is the Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Edition 8 (http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/products/product.asp?pid=447) which I am wary of, considering I have no personal experience with that software and would be much more comfortable saving up for a product that I know will meet a great many of my needs (than one I might wish to upgrade from in five days – but I can’t effectively say, since I am not a Vegas user.)

As you can see, things are happening even when they don’t look like they are.  🙂  All I can ask of you now is your prayers and I humbly beseech your support.

I know you will not always be able to act in a film, be there on filming days, or understand why I am so insanely driven to complete a film, but I ask you to bear with me and be as dedicated as you can.  Without you I don’t have a film.  I need you.  I could make solo documentaries, interview people, or even do one-man films – but not a full cast and crew short film.

We will see what happens.  Likely it will be a few of us who stick together and make it all happen, but I do appreciate it whenever any of you can help.

Thanks!

Regards,

Script Ideas Welcome

April 19, 2008

I’ve been brainstorming on some film ideas, but I have yet to write the scripts once a feasible idea comes. So, keep praying for me that some great, workable stories will arise and that I will be able to write the scripts well. From there, prayer for the preparations, and once we actually start the filming.

Thanks, God bless!

P.S. Script ideas are welcome, so, if you have any suggestions, please send them straight away to sognofilms@gmail.com. Thanks!

P.P.S. Three scripts wanted: 1 action, 1 drama, and either another drama, or something else.
