    I've had some ideas and I know we talked about this before. The problem is getting all of the logistics in place.

    With any fan film, the first thing to do is get the script together. Feel free to bounce around ideas.

    One that I had a while back was a really serious shot of a trooper putting on armor (like IMPS), then cutting back to reveal him (or her, hmmmmm, her may be better. Karma!) only wearing upper armor and bathing suit bottoms then sipping on a fruity drink or something.

    The other thing to think about is time. If you want lots of costume folks in it, it's best to do it between events and to plan for shooting multiple days to get everyone involved.

    There's also equipment. Digital is a must now adays and an external/professional mic system is also a very good idea.

    i already have the plot down and the opening crawl.
    i have contacted several people from the theforce.net
    and they replied
    Once you have the script finished, I'll be happy to give it a read and see
    what you are trying to accomplish.

    Thanks
    and another
    Hell yeah I'd be interested. What sort of help are you looking for your fan film? What type of fan film is it? Can you tell me what the plot is about? If there is a way I can help, I'd be happy to do my part. I'm also looking at making a fan film with a friend that just recently returned from serving overseas, so I'm looking at trying to make contacts, as well.

    so if you know any one with cams armor costumes and want to help this would be good
    thank you

    Hey, this is Dan, an independant film producer/director in the Miami, FL area. I was contacted via the Fanfilms Database and am very interested in helping you guys out however I can.

    Figured I'd come to the board and see what's going on here, you guys seem like you have your heads screwed on right :) Digital, yes, is a fair must, but only because it's easy to get onto computers. Most PCs and laptops (and even Macs) these days come with Firewire ports, which are standard outputs on MiniDV format cameras.

    External microphones are nice, but not an absolute necessity. And many cameras don't have the proper ports to support a good external mic. We'll just have to look at our camera options first then decide to accessorize.

    Let me know how I can help out, best way to contact me is e-mail (dannygast@yahoo.com) or AIM: danjgast

    Thanks a bunch, lookin forward to it! :)

    i want his fan film to be the best it can be
    i dont want to have any rip offs of any movies. i dont like the spoofs very much. they are funny and you do have a good idea. maybe we can make an other to go with it. like a commercial.

    Heres my Idea thinkin. Im likin what Q was thinkin and I think we should run with that and rep the daytona.

    So first you got a clip of luke in the x-wing flyin to daytona. and we edit his words to R2 to "R2 set a course for Daytona Beach (instead of Degobah)"

    The we get some waist up and feet only shots of stormtroopers walkin on the sand at the beach and it makes you think they're on tatooine. But suddely in one of the feet shots out of nowhere pops the tide commin in from the Ocean, and your like HOLY CRAP. The camera then moves up to reveal the trooper is sportin some board shorts tor somethin.Any way thats where my mind was goin.

    Mabye doin somethin like a specially trained stormtrooper faction called like the "surf troopers" where were on some planet called daytona or somethin and we gotta put down som rebellion stuff. and use the race trak as some kind of pod racin craziness. I dont know im just ramblin now

    thats just my two cents. I hope i can help. i havent been here too long. Also we definately need some sort of club/techno scene.....
    mabye not
    Peace
    -Mr.Bones :)<|)X

    I took TV production last year...

    anyways for advertising the FF...my friend has a very popular internet radio show and he'd totally promote it on there for us...so I just thought I'd throw that out there.

    And yeah I like Bones and Q's idea.

    Other things to possibly showcase: bike week, nascar/race track? meh, I'm just speculating.

    Do you guys still need me? Like I said, somebody sent me an e-mail on the Fan Films Crew Database asking if I could help out, but if you don't need me I can scratch it off my to-do list. Especially since nobody has talked to me since...heh...

    Let me know yes or no, s'all good either way. Thanks.
