Working on the Summer Project

So the one big prop this year is the 1986 dodge Van. It has a cracked exust manifold. I have a bunch of spare ones but they were the wrong ones. I did find one on a spare engine so I retrieved it. There was one small problem there was a bolt that snapped off and it needed. To be removed

I welded a 1/2" nut to the broke off bolt then turned it out before it cooled. Now I'm all set to remove the old one and put in the revived one.

Sony Vegas Pro 13

I have been working with Sony Vegas Pro  13 for a few weeks now and it's so frustrating. It doesn't have the level of frame accuracy required to cut feature films. It must have been geared to quick edit news. I like my old Final Cut Pro 2005 I had for editing. It's really to bad that they made Final Cut into the next gen iMovie.  Can't aford monthly payments for ever on Permiere Pro.  I could go back to Avid at a huge cost. Any ideas anyone ?

Who is Sterling

I think I will be rembered as the film maker that spent more money than he ever made. Money is a nesisary eivle. Maybe I will be remembered as a great film maker. Nope not going to happen. I have great film ideas but it takes huge amount of money to make them. 

Way back in grade three 1977 I was so happy to have a new teacher. She was just an average teacher but she restored my love of creation. There is many things I could talk about from this year of school in a portable but most notably was this crazy idea that I had to remake the Titanic movie. 

I saw this really bad film about the Titanic sinking on tv and my mom told me about my grand mother who was going to buy a ticket but desided to take the Queen Marry instead. Both are the seeds of my drive to make my own Titanic movie. 

I wanted to know how it sank. I wanted to know how it felt to be on the ship. I wanted to know the people that were on the ship. I really want to build a full scale set as big as the original ship. I was obsessed with this idea and started writing my first film script.

I was starting to get on my older brother nerves because I was always talking about it. I had a toy boat yellow and with that I purchased at a store in downtown Waterloo. I use to put rocks in it so I could see how it sank. 

I remember talking about my film idea with my brother in my ants back yard. I had my toy boat and was playing in the small creak that ran a cross the back of the property. She also had a small bridge made of wood to cross it so she could go for a walk in the empty field behind the houses

I remember a guy walking his dog and he was very intrested in my idea of making a film on the Titanic. I was always told not to speak to strangers but he seamed nice and keep his distance. He came out of the field behind my ants house, crossed into my ants neibers yard. I thought he must live there. 

Anyways I told him all about my idea to build a full scale set and how I wanted to know how it sank and so on he was very intrested then left the way he came. 

Fast ward many years and I was very happy to hear someone made my film. I couldn't wait to go see it. They had saved me years and years of stress and two hundred million dollars. I film was everything I had dreamed it would be. So so happy someone had made it. My brother was very suprized that my idea had become a huge film. 

Much to my surprise as one day when we drove down to visit my ant that there was a brand new sign Chipawa Home of James Cameron   Oh my. I was talking to James Cameron in 1977 and gave inspired him to make the film. Wow that's amazing. 

You see that's who Sterling is. The guy that inspires people and asks nothing in return. That's what I do and that's why I do it. There is so much negative stuff going on in the world that someone has to step up and inspire great ideas and that's me. It's my core

Life Like a Box of....

Life Like a Box of..... wait a minute thats been used before. So still chipping away at the Good Luck With That film production. We have about 20 pages to go. We are now getting into the expencive locations and Im hoping to raise some more money to start Good Luck Chuck.

We are also starting our March scheduled production Hot Tub Time Travel. Yes its a comedy with a target audience of kids 10 to 14 and will be rated G by the Ontario Film Review Board when complete. The good news is I think I can make it with a budget of $4000, if the price of gas stays down. Here is a link to the production website if you wish to check it out.  http://www.sterlingproductions.ca/HTTT/HTTT_Welcome.html
