    Kickstarter is one of the great ways to fund your film project.

Kickstarter is also one of the better known crowdfunding website, according to the results of Crowd Funding Formula. However exericse your own judgement and be sure to do research when choosing the platform that works best for you. Just this month, we’ve launched our first Kickstarter campaign for our webseries Forgotten corpses. Throughout this process our team has learned a lot!

    Key lights supplied by Valentina Dang This blog will show you how we setup an interview with 3 cameras affordably with make shift gear! Recently we have been doing mini series’ for a webisode – Forgotten Corpses. These mini series will “Pick Your Brains” of the creators from the show and at the same time act as a promotional kick before the main webisodes are released publically. The Background: In order to increase the chances of success on Youtube (which is where this series will be shown) producers have to consistently upload video content according to Wengie who has almost 6 million subscribers on Youtube. She suggested to release original and interesting content once per week, for a course of over 3 months in order to start seeing traction. By using this model, our plan is to construct approximately 12 – 5 minute interviews and release weekly for a course of 4 …

  • 5 Creative Tips to Edit Free Footage

    Posted on by C Chow in Video Editing, Video Production | Comments Off on 5 Creative Tips to Edit Free Footage

    During our winter holiday, we had a chance to ride on I’d say the best downhill trails in Ontario. We’ve used a GoPro camera to capture the footage, we’re not pro snowboarders so we ended up mixing royalty free footage to make the edit more entertaining and epic! Here are the 5 tips on how you can use royalty free footage and music to add to your video’s creatively! #1) IT’S THE SOUND OF MUSIC – Finding music is one of the most important things in a GoPro video because GoPro cameras do not capture sound well. You will definitely need a separate audio capturing device or add music to it in post production, that was what we did. I found that the best free music can be downloaded at Ben Sound, Josh Woodward, and Global Sound Promotion. Youtube also offers royalty free music, you can also check out Jamendo and Incompetech. Once …

  • Top 10 Must See Sci-Fi Movies: Part 2

    Posted on by azure in Recent News, Video Conversion | Comments Off on Top 10 Must See Sci-Fi Movies: Part 2

    Last week I ranked 5 of my favorite science fiction films in pt 1. Here’s the remaining of the countdown. So thanks for waiting, here’s films ranked 5 – 1. 5) The original Star Wars Trilogy – One would expect the original Star Wars series to be higher on the list considering that this series was one of the progenitors of the sci-fi trend. However, there are so many good sci-fi movies out there, that don’t require people to watch in order to be considered a fan. The trilogy follows the adventures of princess Leia and Luke Skywalker as they try to save the galaxy from darkness. This summarizes the plot of all three movies, without going into extreme detail. Even to this day, the movies remain a brilliant cinematic feat, so make sure to watch. 4) Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)  – Fury Road is the fourth installment in …

  • Camera Fighting With No Experience!

    Posted on by C Chow in Video Editing, Video Production | Comments Off on Camera Fighting With No Experience!

    This blog will explain how we learned to make a fight look real on camera with no experience while at the same time producing Hollywood results (or so I hope!) The technique described in this write up was used in our newly released short horror flick starring Lee Lawson and Greg Willmot – be sure to catch them in action in our pilot Forgotten Corpses. Also check out our Facebook page and our brand new website! The entire film took 2 months to put together from having the initial idea all the way to completion just in time for Halloween which was released on Youtube. Challenges arouse when trying to make the fight look as realistic as possible as we had no prior martial arts experience. We’ve casted our actors based on talent, so the movements performed needed to be simple and needed to make sense for the characters. This is how we …

    Science fiction is a must-love for everybody. It has the potential to be the binding force that allows for world peace; it’s that great. Science Fiction movies tackle hard topics like social justice and racism all the while staying action packed, dramatic and a splendor to watch. Each film brings something new to people’s ever growing theories about science and beyond. Besides the fact that sci-fi films make the watcher think, each film tends to fall into one of two categories; a work of sheer brilliance or a film so absurdly funny, that it tickles its audience with a bubbly happiness each time watched. So with no further ado here is my personal top ten sci-fi list. 10) Gravity (2013) – This film is a good intro into mainstream sci fi with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. the visual effects in this film are stunning, winning it many awards.
