Question on Editing

Windows Movie Maker is terrible for audio editing...well all editing actually, but you're right it's very easy and I used it for along while... First, you can only have two tracks running (whatever is on the video portion) and the audio you add to the video. There are ways around this, but they're a...

What makes a good horror film

What annoys me about horror flicks lately is the thought that if they just flash something loud and fast across the screen during a quiet moment that's supposed to be scary. Realism, the thought that this could really happen is what scares me. The idea that there is some horrific/remorseless killer ...

Editing

I get the feeling that there was just so much more story to tell and feel like there is probably a really awesome 3.5 hour cut and they just went through and haphazardly chopped out portions that weren't as important. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the film, I just think there were things that...

Editing

Re-watching this the other night, I noticed there are a ton of strange edits and quick cuts that made the movie feel very disjointed and jarring...unlike any previous Nolan film. The biggest one and most noticeable being when Selina steals Bruce's car. it cuts in and out of her driving so quick that...

Looking for collaborators

No problem, it is a little inception- esque but I'm working out the kinks to make that comparison dwindle.

By the end I'd like the only thing that's "inceptiony" about it be that it involves dreams.

Looking for collaborators

I've spent the last couple weeks writing every thought I've had during my downtime. I've decicded that I do t really have a story to tell with the tragedy in West Webster. I noticed that the word I kept using was helpless over and over so that got me thinking and in a real round about way I came up ...

Looking for collaborators

My town was recently struck with a horrific tragedy, I am a fire fighter and an EMT. I work for several agencies in the area so the story is profound. on Christmas Eve four local firemen were called to the scene of a car fire. On arrival they hoped out to take care of said fire only to be ambushed.....

I guess the easiest way to put it is, I don't care. That's why it's so vague. If I knew, I would've written it already.

Looking for collaborators

Really I would be interested in shooting anything. I'm so bereft of ideas that I can't write a damn thing without it sounding completely idiotic. I love long take, in depth dialog stuff.movies like Drive and Killing Them Softly. If you're into breaking bad there is a scene in the feat season where W...

No takers? I'd also be willing to work with some writing prompts. "Two guys, a bar, their conversation" type stuff...
