A lot of people know a thing or two about how this industry works, first hand.

And most of them know the difference between tough love and condescension.

"Filming" generally refers to the process of making films, not just the stock you shoot on.

wtf did i do to you? how do i amuse you? i never even really said anything to you if you go back and read the thread from the top.

so based on my question, the fact i used "filming" instead of "shooting" and that i am shooting on HD I am not a real filmmaker?

wow. i heard that.

an hvx is HD. they even used it in the last scene of The Departed where Matt Damon gets his head blown off. i sold mine this summer - martin s even refers to it as having "filmed" in HD. big article on it used in panasonic's press releases. i have an Hpx500 and we'll be using a varicam to shoot thanks to a hookup at the rental shop.

i'll avoid the whole film vs HD debate. long day.

i'm more interested on anything anybody can tell me about how to work with producers. not who shoots on what or your credentials.

so you go on message boards and brag about who's got the biggest d*ck?

you do one knockoff version of the passion of the christ and you're a freaking steven spielberg, lol. get over yourself.

I would contract a good line producer/production manager to take care of all the scheduling and budgets.

If you're looking for a producer to help find a distributor, have you considered a producer's rep?
yea i'm not even sure i need a producer. i've secured all the locations myself and have the crew, etc. if she can put up more $$$ then I guess that would be cool, but i'm not sure we'll need that much more except maybe for misc equipment and rentals. i'm getting a lot of favors from people that are in better positions than i am. i guess i'll just see what she can offer when she calls back.

we may need to look into a producer's rep. thanks!

Juno Styles,

Good luck with your project. It sounds like all is going to work out for you.

The banter here between Juno and vstm is silly. Whether it's shot in HD which can be transferred to film, or an Arriflex which can be purchased on eBay at any time, what's the difference?

You are both making movies, and I admire that.

I intend to see THE OBSCURE BROTHER when I get the chance, and I'll try to catch Juno's project as well. I'll make my own judgement as to how good I think they are, but I'll probably want to pick your minds regardless.

I wish you both much success.

I'm going to throw my hat into the VSTM is a ****ing idiot camp. I've been working in the industry for a long time (you're not the only one on this board on IMDB) and have never heard there being some kind of moralistic stance on it either way. When it comes down to it, who the **** cares? I mean, whatever, tape is easier for people starting out so go for it. It is still a motion picture if you want to argue bull**** (which is what this "film" vs "tape" or "movie" debate is.) I say next step is to talk down to Michael Mann, David Lynch, and other recent "film"makers to go tape.

P.S. VSTM, it is spelled "amateurish" not "amaturish" you ****ing moron.

She apologized. I believe we can all move on.
