Hey everyone, I'm interested in knowing what some of you independent film-makers are up to in the way of projects for 2004. As myself I have been planning for a good month for a Teen Suicide Documentary of Canada that will be taking place shortly as we are just finishing the planning stage; sorting out paper work, sponsors, site, documentary outline, research and etc. The soon may be coming out later tonight if anyone is interested in checking it out, it maybe a little bare at first as the sponsors logos and etc won't be up yet, but there will be things all about the documentary the documentary stats, chance for you to raise the awareness of our documentary by us mailing you stickers or posters for your schools or community and crew in depth profiles. We are also hoping to setup a paypal donation box where you are able to help support our documentary by sending us a few dollars even just .50 cents makes us happy. We need the money for travel and some minor equipment costs any left over compensation will be dontated to programs across Canada.

Well enough about my big project for 2004, i'm wondering if any of you have anything big film projects planned! Let us know!

Well, we at Dennis & Ronnie Films are going to be quite busy this year as well, if all goes to plan. We're in the process of upgrading our equipment and software at the moment, but starting fairly soon, we're going to start shooting on some pretty major stuff. Here's a list of things that may or may not see the light of day in 2004... Actually, most of these won't. They're just solid ideas we have and plan to do someday.

The Adventures Of Sam Spade
This began with The Low, Down Of It, and the story will continue, with many twists along the way. The next episode can probably be expected in a few months. Maybe the beginning of the summer.

Short Short Collection
We're notorious for getting ideas for movies that'll last less than 2 minutes. These are known as Short Shorts. In 2004, we're planning to get at least 10 of these filmed so we can make a DVD that includes all of them with some extra stuff. Should be fun, anyway.

Dennis & Ronnie Films' Decade Collection
This is just in the planning stages for now, but we intend to make 10 short films, probably about 5 minutes each, that represent the feel and look of films from any given decade. As in, 1900's, 1910's, 1920's, etc. etc., until the 90's. As this is quite a large project, this probably won't happen in 2004, but we'll at least throw some tests together.

Sweet, Embraceable You: The Love Trilogy
This is kinda all my own thing, but my crew is obviously going to be there with me. This is going to be a three part movie based around the same couple, that documents from their first date, and goes until they've broken up and gone their separate ways. Each of the three will have a different feel and mood. I think it'll be much different from anything we've tried to do in the past, since it's more of a drama than anything. This is also a "Someday" project.

Untitled, Unscripted, Uneverything Sundance Project
Given time, a good idea, a better script, and proper funding, Dennis & Ronnie Films will attempt to create a short, about 30-45 minutes to submit to the Sundance Film Festival. This year will be dedicated more to getting a script down than anything, and probably next year will be for actually getting it made, then we'll submit it for the 2006 festival. It's a major major project, and hopefully a big move for us. So far, I'm thinking it'll be shot on digital, since Sundance now admits any format, but hey, maybe we'll shoot on 16mm. Anyway, this is something that won't be around for a while...

So pretty much, you can expect to see a lot of random shorts coming from us this year, and some more Sam Spade. We're looking forward to it. Should be a good year for us.

CX3, sounds like you guys are gonna be having fuuuuuun!

Note to wdy- it is now moved.

We've got a bunch of projects we are tossing around, not quite sure which ones we will get to first. We've got a western adventure/comedy that has been bouncing around for a year or two now. In fact we actually filmed about 15 minutes of it a year or so ago, but ended up having to scrap it to do another project. Eventually we plan to re-do the whole thing.

Then we have a hand-animated short that is mostly through pre-production. We got storyboards done, but not much of the animation. It'll probably end up being about 2 minutes long. Also a western, of sorts.

We're still working on a story for a odd sort of not-quite-horror piece, possibly involving some make-up creature effects, and focusing a lot on character development. Details are still vague.

The another animation, probably clay on this one, about an assortment of people stranded on a small island. Definitely comedy. I think my brother has a script finished for this one.

A science-fiction sort of action movie with a lot of combat of different sorts. Turns out the idea I originally had for this one is a bit similar to a famous short story called The Most Excellent Game. Not really based on it, but similar in some ways.

And then, a short, probably around 30-45 minutes, based on the bible account of David and Goliath. Big armies, big action, and making one of our actors look like a really big guy (9.5 feet), should provide a lot of fun on this one. Lots of adventures in forced perspective, and probably the biggest cast we have ever used will be required for this one.

There might be more, but that's all I can think of right off.

Slayer and I are going to be lucky if we get anywhere near our next film (Vampire). We've also got to think about a sequel to Reservoir Kats, get married in between and start our own business!

If we're lucky you guys might get to see a very rough trailer sometime around Xmas!!! biggrin

Well, Flying Sock Productions is not really known for productivity, lol. Right now we've got one project (which will be my first with chromanator!!) that it needs to stop raining for. It's just a goofy action movie called "Santa's Slay" and it's about a kid who gets coal for christmas one year, and he grows up and takes his revenge out on santa. After that, we don't have anything planned, but we'll probably work in some kind of comedy, and I'm hoping we can start moving into a Matrix fanfilm which is mostly planned for next year and this summer.

aw, movies that I have planned so far include a french film about a girl who does drugs and goes to God for help. That will be submitted in my school's talent show in March.

The other one is an action movie called Agent #1 which is sort of a tribute to the 007 movies.

I've set up a filmmaking society at my uni so hopefully we'll have tons of projects going.

Personally, I'm producing

--Parallel Dreams, drama-fantasy with a car crashing off a cliff in the first 30 seconds, gripping!!!

--Henry Ate His Six Wives, costume-comedy in the style of Blackadder

--Hitmen, comedy with a cockney villain called Jimbo Williams

--(untitled) Teen Horror movie based (loosely) on an Agatha Christie novel

--(untitled) Drama with the most exciting bicycle chase ever filmed! Yeah, right.

--Bermuda, drama mystery - had this planned for ages but due to complicated WW2 war plane 3d work, had to be postponed; now it is going to be produced!

A Bigfoot Adventure(subject to be changed)-Comedy

Yes, exactly what it sounds, a motly group of skeptics and belivers head out in search of the great mystery creature.

Expect total nonsense and a musical number or two. I have even figured a way to use some alam effects. This film may very well come out to be over a half hour in length and we are very hard at work.

-Coming Late Winter, early spring.

Well Sunset in a Beretta's Eye lurches ever forward towards completion. For those who don't know it's a heroic bloodshed film about love, honour, blah blah blah but enough of all that stuff there's a load of shooting in it.
Maybe that'll get done this year but I've been saying that since 2002.


There's a 5 minute short film. That we're working on it's a romantic drama based on "King Lear".

There's talks of comedies from skecth shows to spoofs. That we may do.

Sequels to "Sunset in a Beretta's Eye." if we have a spare decade to shoot them in.

And a quite personal project that I've been thinking about doing for seven years,may be on it's way.

And all the short films I've made over the last few years'll probably get released.

I was going to be making a few (prolly 1 every 2 months) - but since i'll be out of a job when my contract expires feb 1st (stupid new company owners) - things will be pushed.

One thing that is ALMOST done is RedFruit II (http://redfruit2.scope-films.com) and I look forward to releasing that.

Not sure if I've actually posted what I'm working on:

Been working hard on ideas and scripts and loadsa testshots since I finished Crawling Space; with other people and some solo scripts that I haven't yet discussed. These are the current ventures:

Crawling Space 0 (prequel), Toy Love, Zero and Shadow.

I do however take a very long time finding what I want to be the perfect location. smile

Well, I usually think I'm jinxed when it comes to mentioning big plans. Usually cause something happens that queers the deal. sad But I'll mention this one:

HOPEFULLY shooting my film this year, or at least beginning it. A sort of fantasy/thriller thing. I hate to class stuff and this one ain't easy! A powerful source has been hidden for many years because of its destructive power. And for 500 years someone has been looking for it.

Blah blah blah! Basically the hero is thrown into this unbelieveable situation and his life is put into danger. His friend and his sister are pulled into it too. And a mysterious couple begin to unravel the truths behind it.

Anyway, I put my script into my theatre last month and I'm just waiting for a meeting to be arranged. Whereby, I have to pitch it! eek Oh man... Well, there it is. Not much else to say for now.

Adam.

Oh yeah, this mate of mine's given me this big sci-fi action script as well that he really wants me to direct, I may do that it'll make a change. Being as I'm not really interested in sci-fi this could be different.

Well...i'm still getting settled out here in LA, but I have a PC now and whilst i'm waiting for my Work permit I have started writing a short horror movie so once I have the money to buy a camera (Got my eye on a nice Sony model, around 2K mark) I can start yelling for some actors and help. I'd like to rebuiuld 'The Big Dogs' here in LA like I did in London.

That costume actually looks alright.

I've made tons of stuff over the past few years, and I have posted none of it onto this site.

HOPEFULLY, that will change. smile

The Short:
I am closing in on the finish of choreagraphy for our four-man multi-fight. Although it doesn't have much of a plot (it will be about five minutes), I asure you, if I can host it somewhere AND be happy with the quality, it will be here. Also, I can asure you, if it does make it here it could possibly be some of the most advanced amatuer fighting ever seen on this website. However, as of now, despite my wide range of skills, I know nothing about web hosting.

The Feature:
A lot of people go on about making feature films, and I'm not saying I deserve any credibility, but anyways....
I am in the advanced stages of the script and we have managed to get our hands on FOUR (!) XL1s, a wireless mic, and a few local stage actors.
A good friend of mine has already agreed to score the film. I don't want to give much away, because this project is totally commited. By God, this film will be done by the end of the year or I'll......I'll......I'll...... weep profusely. We plan on entering it into as many film festivals as possible. Once finished with the entire film, I'll post the script here and try to send out DVDs to as many people as possible. But that's way, way off.

Preproduction awaits. eek


Good luck to anyone and everyone in thier attempts this year. biggrin

Four cameras and only one Mic? I hope that was a typo. Also, is this some kind of action movie? What do you need 4 cameras for?

To Aculag-
I have had two boom mics fora while, I just recently got ahold of a wireless. Three mics total.

No it isn't an action movie, it's suspense/drama. I find it easier to shoot dialogue with more cameras. The only problem is setting them up. But yeah, with four static cameras, we won't have to change angles much at all. Just point, roll, direct.

I thought I'd bring this back, since I'm sure plans have changed for some of you. They definitely have for me...

Sam Spade is on hold, because our Sam is not going to be in the country for the summer, so any sequel to The Low, Down Of It won't be around for quite a while.

I am moving back to Colorado in June, so opportunities are very high for filming a lot of stuff.

Expect at least one movie involving green-screening, and a short western, which is to be test footage and kind of a prologue for a feature I want to make eventually.

Fun.

I don't know how you guys can make so many movies in that short time. It takes me a lot of time for the script and storyboard alone. I truly believe in preproduction, without that, it's very hard to do a good movie.

I'm finally shooting a 40 minute script I wrote a few years back, after my 1st year exams in early June.

It was called The Butterfly Effect, (I had text below my posts saying "The Butterfly Effect - coming soon)...but the people I had in it I decided were not doing justice to what I wrote, so I called it off. I've changed the title now because of the Ashton Kutcher film.

There's also a WW1 film I'm currently in production for with the student theatre, & submitting to the History Channel.

I've recently been working on a short film (5-10 min action flick) titled "The Guard" (Woot for unoriginality)..

Just looking at this thread makes me really really wish I was more than a 1-man-crew. I only occasionally have a couple friends able to help me, but none of us are decent actors or any of that, .. All 3 of us enjoy the editing/post-prod parts more than the actual filming, heh... so it's difficult to get a start on anything, even if I have some decent ideas.

(Oh, yeah, and costumes are always a problem...)

you mean his movies, because Fincher didn't write his movies (at least I cannot see him credited somewhere), but then his movies tend to be more of neo film noirs anyway. I think for dark material you may check out Andrew Kevin Walker (I think that guy is a genius) wink .

No, I'm not daft. I'm taking influence from his visual style and the overall feel of his movies. You can always tell you're watching a Fincher film by the feel it has. I'm using my own writing style, however. A lot of talking, and really dry (but in this one, it's really dark too) humour. Trust me.

Well I had two weeks to shoot most of one of the biggest scenes in the film, however hardly anyone turned up so we didn't get no where near all the stuff shot. Now those two weeks are over, as is our best chance to film those sequences, so "Sunset in a Beretta's Eye" is a hairs breadth away from cancellation. (as always they said they'd be there, then suddenly at the last minute had to work, so without that scene, we don't have a film, so i may have just wasted two years.) there'll be the odd weekend that we can use to shoot in, but if we couldn't get those guys to turn up in two weeks, what chance we got in two days.

It's difficult stuff, also I've watched back a load of the footage we did manage to shoot and most of it's useless, also one of the principal actors has gone away to be a lifeguard for three months, so we can't finish his stuff until he returns. At least I don't have to worry about it. And most of the guys have dissappeared so I can't organise more filming.

I'll be glad when this is over, my next film has no action in it, and it much shorter and easier, I can't wait. smile

Sorry I just had to get that off my chest, I'm so anxious and on edge, I haven't been able to sit still for a week. This film is too ambitious.

A Teaser trailer should be coming along soon, quite soon. But I want a few more money shots.

Also I'm editing "What good effects may spring from words of love" which has one of the longest titles of any film I've worked on, that's a five minute romantic drama that's getting shown in a cinema. Hooray!!!!

Oh yeah I also sprained my ankle on the first day of shooting, the big action scene. Luck really is on my side.

TGS, you got me worried about MY ambitious flic. Dang. Could you tell me anything about your production? Things like camera, sound, actor/crew management? Anything at all. Sorry to bring it back to the surface, but this could help others.

Swedish Tigers
Original title: De svenska tigrarna
Team: GurkoWorks
Genre: War/drama
Plot: Germany attacks Sweden during the 2nd world war and a swedish group of soldiers tries to survive the attack throught woods and farms.
Status: Pre-production (writing script and collecting very realisitc props)
Length: 3-4 episodes, 20 minutes each.
Estimated release: First episode, fall 2004

This is GurkoWorks most serious and big project ever. The only film with a script in hand before the production of it. The swedish soldiers is about 8 persons with the original uniforms from the 2nd world war with the real weapons (Swedish Mauser m/96 and swedish kpist m/37) and equipment. The german uniforms is converted from the swedish model beacuse they resemble the german uniforms. The only thing you have to do is re-sew (or sew again if that's correct) and buy helmets and marks. We strive for a very realistic film with real effects (not to much digital) and more realistic sound effects (like no swish before a punch sound and no unrealistic punch sound either).

I'd love to.

Now with an ambitious film, be prepared to let it take a while. I've been at this for almost two years. We'd got so much stuff done on those first days it seemed we'd wrap it within a few months, not so. Take it day at a time, scene at a time, shot at a time. The moment you start thinking about all those thousands of shots and complex pieces, you start to panic and drown in a sea of tape.

I use two cameras now, but we shot most of this with one, it all comes down to planning, know exactly where you're going to put each camera in your head, off by heart. Get it all calmly laid out in your head to precision, know exactly what you want. If you wing it, then you'll most likely have to reshoot it (if you're a perfectionist that is, like me.)

It's a good Idea to break each shot down, if you're doing action sometimes it works to shoot these lengthy pieces with numerous chorographed movements, the problem is that's more stuff to go wrong, so it's a good idea to break it down simply. I do this too much I forget I'm only an amateur and start taking it too far and get out of my depth. Same with dialogue shoot the lines practically individually, if you shoot a whole exchange it'll take longer, require more takes, and by the end of the take the performances are tired. (Unless you have really good actors, but the chances are you'll be using your mates, who may not be that good.)

Wide angles lenses rock.

Take it easy, you're not proffessionals, don't have really long tracking shots, which only tracks or a steadicam could do if you don't have any of that stuff. I get carried away thinking we can get it, but it's near impossible to get a smooth moving shot for anymore than a few seconds/ a few steps. So break it down again, take it easy, it's the same with stunts, use as much padding as is possible, get vast amounts of it even for simple stunts, use way too much. Don't start off with this whole, "I don't need padding" bravado, I do that and it just takes up time, and hurts more so you don't get as many takes. For an untrained guy it's all psychological and if it looks like there's no way that could hurt, then you get a better stunt and more takes of it.

The biggest problem you'll face is unreliable people. Try to build each scene around using the least amount of people, just making it look like there's more if need be, you can get some great effects that make it look like you had about 5 guys around, when you only had three, just be being clever with camera placement and editing. (I do this in some action scenes when all the stunt guys have their faces covered, so I can use the same people again and again.)

Give them an investment, once I mentioned to the least reliable actor I had, that the film may be screened in a cinema his enthusiasm rose and he turned up more, even though he wasted months worth of filming, single handedly, before that. Have the fewest characters possible, this means the least actors, try to get rid off all those "passer-by" roles they'll just soak up more actors.

If you have a big complex scene, get it all planned out perfectly in your head, know how many people are in each shot, list them out either on paper or in your head, "shots that we need 2 people for", "shots that we need 3 people for", "shots we need 4 people for" etc. you get two guys turn up, shoot the shots that you need two guys for, maybe a few weeks later you manage to get 3 people, shoot those missing shots. This is an efficient way to do it, providing your up to it. It'll all be way out of sequence but at least your getting them captured.

So just keep calm, know exactly what you want, take it easy, dont' get out of your depth and if you've got any questions, then I may be able to help you out there.

Have fun. smile

Some production stills of a new project of mine








As well, i put up a little behind the scenes clip. It's slightly comical. We did a setup to do a shot (this is about halfway through, the lights were next)...and then the cam on the crane died...and we ended up having to move the setup elsewhere to get the camera charging and shooting. Wasted about 20 min.

Thanks for the advice, TGS. But all the stuff you mentioned was already in my notes. Thanks for that, though.

I'll be working with a theater group on the following idea:

_____________________

Title: Corrupt Data (WT)
Genre: Fantasy/Thriller
Length: 120 page script...
_____________________

I don't know when it'll begin and I won't be making any other films. It's this one and then who knows. Don't know when it could begin, could be as late as next year. Maybe even August 2005 cause the theater is pretty busy. *Sighs* So during my free time till then, I'll be figuring out all I need to know with AlamDV2, attending a digital film course at the SAE, working my script into a 3rd draft and then I'll sit and learn After Effects. And of course do some tests including music.

I've been developing this idea since late 2001 and it was only last August that I had a happy 2nd draft. All the ideas really came together for that one. The first draft is pretty bloated with info. But my friend kindly made sure I didn't rest on that one. And the ideas I've been putting in for the third draft are major changes. Hats off to www.theonewhoflew.tk! biggrin

Anyway, that's all. Thanks for indulging me.
Adam.

projects for the year ahead... hmm, my wedding, my honeymoon.. who knows..

as for other filming... well.. Maybe

The heating appliance.. who became a slave.. who had a fight... who defied an emperor...... RADIATOR.....

Or a story about a car that when it gets to 88 MPH can travel through time... but only to about 15 seconds ago... Back to the start line ?

I might even do a fingerman tribute movie, with lots of fingermen, in a western or WW2 setting.. saving private ryans index finger...

OTOH I might just do a few lightsabre tests and maybe a bullet time test or two without coming up with anything original...

Hi everybody,

This is my first post here on fxhome (Allthough i've been
visiting this site for about two years now )

The reason for this is that I havent been working with film
for the last four years. The last time i held a camera was when
i studied film in school.

But now I belive I have the time and energie to make something.


The film i've started working on is a classic horror movie
with a few twists and turns.

Title. Within the woods
Tagline. never wander to far...
Length. 30-45 min

Im wokring on a website for this film, where you will be able
to follow the project as it develops (i hope).

At the moment the only thing I've done is a teaser poster
check it out here and tell me what you think.

2k4 isnt't over yet, I changed plans big time, did some shorts, lan more shorts, finishing a 20 minute short, and am planning a 45-60 minute film, maybe longer. See details here: http://cpostudios.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=56

I'm planning on a few movies. One which is in post production. They'll be in this order.

1. Star Wars- Comedy
2. Roman like movie
3. (Maybe) LOTR parody
4. The Lagend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Star Wars comedy, (Planet of the Clones) is almost done, but the filming process wasn't that great, I have learned a lot of things on that part of filming, but post work is very pleasing. I wish I could go back in time, refilm with a better script and my current skills, but keep the post production work.... The Roman movie was for a latin movie project our teacher never assigned, and LOTR and Zelda never, and never will happen, bad idea.... I was young back then.... smile

In italy theres a satanic sect named "beasts of satan".
They killed many ppl since 1996.
Because of Journals and TVs, now italians believe that Dark Style and listening to metal music are synonymous with "killer".

I'm making a short film named "Darkwords" which is based on these events to prove that ppl judges by appearances.

I'm still writing the screenplay.
Hope to start filming soon and finish before April 2005


Another film (this time is only in my head, dunno if i will ever make it) is Star Rats, a comedy based on a famous italian magazine (Original title: Rat-Man)
Do a little search on gooooooooogle about Rat-Man, its a to-die-for magazine

"Sunset in a Beretta's Eye" is soldiering on, getting closer, may have a trailer during the first half of this century... maybe. But we're getting there shot by shot, take by take.

My short romantic comedy drama was completed and shown in a cinema.

My full length romantic comedy is still being written but my mate keeps giving me loads of great inspiration.

And the huge sci-fi epic this guys been writing for me to direct may have it's screenplay sold as it's real good, if it's sold then I'm off the project most likely, but I'm doing production design for it still though. I'm putting a nice original twist on the sci-fi film with it.

We've got alot on our plate right now.

"The Friendship"
A movie about two teens in the woods, and one falls off of a 10 foot cliff, spliitting his leg open, getting infection, hallucinating, and eventually goin after his friend. The script for this was done and most of it was shot, but we've decided to restart, so right now I'm reconfiguring the script. It should be an hour long. We used 18 locations for this movie.

"Hitman and Maletti"
A dark comedy about two hitmen who get hired to do a job which requires them to be at five houses in one night.

"Promo"
We're still working on ideas and concepts for our promo. We haven't started filming yet

"Atom"
This is our most ambitious project. I've been scripting this for about a year, and though the final script should be about 100 pages, I've only written 50. I'm still trying to find the right actors for this movie, and I'm currently trying to work something out with Rawree about the FX for this movie- Rawree, sorry I haven't got back to you on that, real busy lately. Its a toned down sci-fi flick about a guy who gets injected with an aborted drug for Parkinson's disease. He then of course gains special abilities as a result of the drug, etc. Atom is slated for production to begin somewhere in early 2005.

"Ready"
A quick movie about a guy who wakes up and gets ready for school, only to find out its Saturday. Quick little movie.

Okay, well that's all for now, we have a couple more projects, but nothing worth mentioning now. Alright then.

Good Luck Filmmaking, Ben.

Hello,
Long time reader, first time poster here. I've started working on a crime comedy in the vein of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and Bottle Rocket called 'Unfortunate Circumstances'. The story is basically about three guys whose lives are stuck in a rut until a fourth friend of theirs (who is a career criminal just starting out on his own) convinces them to help him in creating a criminal empire. As always, wild hilarity and violence ensue. I'll try to put up a trailer or teaser footage once I actually get the money to get AlamDV and my SGM-X.

P.S. Good luck to all of you in your endevours! All of the movies that I've seen from the site are awesome.

I'm thinking about doing a film based on my grandmothers family owned bed and breakfast. She used to tell me stories about when she grew up there, about it being haunted by three ghosts (Mother, Father and small child). I have always wanted to do a horror / suspense / thriller kind of movie and after reading these forums and checking out the demo versions of this awesome software I may just go ahead and do it.

It would be a sort of "sixth sense" type movie with limited Special FX and a microbudget but who knows. I'm actually getting excited just thinking about it, lol.

It's nice to finally find a community like this on the net I have been looking for one for some time.

I'm now making a film based on my recent experiences with opium dens in Asia. It features graphic violence, strong sexual content (lots of concubines), and of course, prominent drug use.

Well if i finally buy chromy and Alam, this is what will be made at Impossible Productions (crew of 1 because my far fetched i deas have never gone far and noone has the faith):

The Cup: An ancient golden goblet that was blessed by a dead holy man in 1356 AD is trying to be found by 3 orginizations. The one that the movie focuses on as the good guys is SA-37, a covert branch of the CIA. They attempt, in 2004, to recover the cup before anyone else can use the powers for evil, for the cup's mysical powers are the strongest in the universe; they can create life, destroy life, and, used incorrectly, can cause the world to go into a intersellar paradox and implode from the begginings of time.
