Any possibility of making a fan film?
There are always possibilities.
<there is always hope>
Actually, I was thinking today, my uni has heaps of forest, heaps, forest even surrounds all of my universties buildings, perfect for a sci-fi setting . We could make a fanfilm at Griffith.
What if the setting requires one of a post apocalyptic type?
Interesting. Well we would have to find a post apocolyptic setting then. My bedroom is looking good for such a setting .
That doesn't sound good ?
I made 88 posts today!.
Ok I'm all posted out (excuse the pun) and I also posted the posters around uni, sigh .
I'm a poster boy
There is a very good possibility of a Fan Film happening if Luigi and I have anything to do with it.
Anyone willing to help out is more than welcome.
I'll post more details on this particular one when they become available.
I also would like to film something original if anyone has any ideas.
I'm full of ideas...
...well, full of something, anyway.
Seriously though, I'm in. Can't make it to the bbq, however. Perhaps have a seperate film meeting at some point? Coffee + ideas, that sort of thing.
"But I *need* tacos! I need them or I will explode! That happens to me sometimes."
But you can't have them. I have them all. Ha ha!!!!
I'd love to be involved in a fan film. I happen to have a copy of Premiere 6.0, and I've been playing around recently, and am begining to get the hang of the whole video editing thing. Also, I have done a little rotoscoping work with it and photoshop, and it works well. So if we do decide to do something like this, count me in.
Neech you know where I stand on the matter
Neech I think your current Idea, the one you showed to some of us on the Bowling/Pool/Trivia Pursuit/Columbia evening has its merits.
But that dosen't stop anyone here posting their ideas...
"Dead Bad Guy No.3"
You now have a trooper if needed.
Thank you all.
Post Production (Editing and SFX), are being handled so far by Luigi and myself.
We are mainly looking for help on the the 'shooting' side of things so....
I have a lecturer friend here at uni who likes to make amaturer films- he used to actually work as marketing manager for Greater Union . It is a long shot but if we approached him with a nifty script, well you never know . Further he is a mad trekkie fan, so our fan film's genre ,ight appeal to him .
It doesn't bother me what I'm doing, I'd just love to be involved in a project like this.
Any advance on this idea?
You know what I'd like to see with regard to a Star Wars fan film? An effects-minimised, well scripted, dramatic film. As little action as possible, just enough to let you know that this person's a Jedi, that person's a sith etc..
One without a saber duel. Without blasters, without x-wings and tie fighters. IE something like (the scenes from the movies) in the Lars home or on a ship enroute to somewhere.
A good piece that explores characters, as they're not always blasting, duelling or the like..
I have one idea that is minimal on the action but delves more into the characters. It also shows the Sith in a new light, and by that I don't mean that they are the heroes.
Just about every Fan-Film, the Sith win. It's starting to get old.
Was bound to happen though.
I agree that a film shouldn't just be a 2 line plot used as an excuse to get lots of hot sabre on sabre action. But I'd still like to see lightsabres used, just not as the central focus.
A couple of friends and I tossed around the idea of doing a fan film a couple of years back, but it never got off the ground. I did come up with a vague storyline though, which was quite character and story driven, not just an excuse to get 2 fanboys on film going the tonk with a couple of broom handles. If you guys want, I'll see if I can remember how it went and post it for your perusal.
the problem with making a character drama is that you have to have good actors and I for one have never seen a fan film with good acting.
*recoils from the heat*
Athough you have a point. But being fan films with close to zero on a budget (although there's a few funded ones as you'd know better than I), getting good actors is hard. Unless they're fans themselves.
