Everyone's Alright With This


As some blog readers will know I am directing a rather lavish short called "Everyone's Alright With This".

As well as being a fantastic story in its own right its aim is to explore how to get the best from the POVCam. It's written by Natalie Barthel, with Johnny Griffith helping to get us all in the same room together for some excellent script discussions.

Working together in this way is great. It is drawing together different views, all aiming towards one goal of a good script. Although we have the same skills we approach things slightly differently. I like working together like this.

But now, as we move towards production, I am finding there is another way of working together. This is about working with people who have a totally different set of skills to you. There is no overlap.

I met up with costume designer Sally Winter yesterday. It will come as a surprise to none of you that costume design is not a strength of mine. There isn't a need for a full on costume designer in this short, but that doesn't seem to be the point. Working with someone like Sally actually gets you thinking about the opportunities generally in that field. Someone with that skill level opens your eyes to other ways of showing character and telling stories. They inspire you.

The same for location really. Here is our location - the Print Room. Lastly, the call for actors is still live if you fancy joining this great collaboration yourself.

As one of the actors working on this project, all I can say is, it's a very strange feeling acting so close to the lens. You could see that every feeling that the wearer(Caroline Haines) is feeling gets picked up by the camera. It takes a very good actor to pick up all the emotion and not over respond, Carolie Haines is exactly that. She is a very fine actress who has done a great job and wearing the new device through out all of the scenes, carries it off to perfection. It was a pleasure working with everybody involved, crew and cast. A special thanks to Tim Clague from Projector Films and Elaine Davey from White Lantern Films for inviting me to take part.

I saw this post which i felt I needed to administer my take. I even have flick through the comments and most of the people seem unhappy with overr projectorsiding Paramount smart Well, i assume I’m the only happy person here. I bought a overriding smart-905 a short time ago and I’m happy with it. I developed interest to buy for a predominate projector once being prompt by an acquaintance to form the acquisition. once I visited the stores,I found that the projector was going at $4000 that was absolutely unaffordable on behalf of Pine Tree State. the vendor united to create a deal and sold-out it to American state at $1200. I watch movies with it and thus the images square measure unceasingly super sharp. On occasions, I watch TV exploitation it and it works dead.
