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.

Working on Milo's demo reel today

Yes just finished editing Milo's demo reel today. It's a bit long but it will have to do. I cut scenes out of the short films and feature film he worked on and the reel looks good. I hope it makes casting directors want to hirer him.
Actor Milo Boccinfuso age 12 

It's just another service I do for the actors for free. Please swing by the website and make a donation so I can make more films and help more young actors gain the experience they need to find work in the biz.

I made a few things with After Effects yesterday for the film. I have a new editing program on order. The store is not sure when the program will arrive. Its Premiere Pro. Both my freind Cath and Kevin use this program so I will har some help figuring out how to use it.  It cost $865 plus tax.  I deside to buy the program rather than rent it monthly. In the long run it will be way cheaper.

Editing Software

I'm really do not like what they did to Final Cut Pro. It's now iMovie based when it use to be Avid based. I have no control over saving files were I want them and can refind them. It puts all projects in one project. Can you imaging 10 separate feature film projects with 40 hours of footage all jumbled in one project?

It's not going to work at all for me. 

I looked into Preiemere Pro. It only offers a monthly rental of the program and I suspect that you can't canciel it it you run out of money to pay them. 

My free copy of Sony Vegas hasn't arrived yet. I'm guessing they have a 3 month turn around on free offers. I would need to buy a $2000 Windows 7 computer to run it

So Avid editing software looks the most attractive to me right now. It's $1299 Himmmm

Anyways. I'm filming GLWT on Saturday and a production meeting for GLC on Sunday.

It was a long day

Well that concludes another broadcast day. It start around 4:30 am. and now it's 11:30 pm   I purchased a new Mac Mini after an endless screech for used computers that might work. The ones I wanted where sold before I found them.  I barked an SXS card ready to try and get the footage off the cards but it's a no go. I installed allot of drivers and programs from Sony to make it work and it's still a no go. 

The blu Ray burner I purchased doesn't work at all with Mac even tho the box and website say it does 

Anyways tommorrow is a new day 

All new HD camera

We finally did it. We got a new HD camera after saving for two years and a dollar for dollar dintation. Thank you so much D J Bastillle.  Here is a link to the un boxing video.

I waited ten years for this day.

I waited ten years for the day when I would have two matching 23" monitors for my G5. And today is the day. I found one I could aford, drove three hours in freezing rain and a snow storm. Cocked it out to the best of my computer knalahe and is looks good. I got home hooked it all up and the moment of trueth. It works but there is some kind of problem. I can't get the two monitors to match color. The power button is glowing green instead of white. Hummmm I will need to buy another one.

Good Luck With That. Project

So I worked on the film schedule for most of yesterday. I kind of have the mississauga cast orginized. Now today's task is to figure out the cambridge casts schedule. 

I do have some more casting to do for both films and So I need to get some script pages orginized. I also need to have a meeting with Quinn about rewrites 

I did a bunch of work on the website yesterday as well. Also trying to set up a meeting with the music talent we are hoping to use in the film. 

Also on the list for today. Booking hall with a stage for the dance / concert. Also booking the swimming pool. Both will require payment up Frount so I will need to barrow the money from someone. 

A great big thank you goes out to everyone that has donated money so far.
