It Ain’t Film or TV
By: Bob Gillen on Sep 6, 2013 at 6:07:00 pm

One of the core truths of writing a web series: it ain’t television or movies. Sure, they have common elements. As Mildred Lewis, co-creator of the web series Etiquette, says, “Good writing is good writing is good writing. Plot, character, setting, conflict, compelling ideas, engaging emotions all remain crucial.” That being said, the audience experiences a web series differently. “On the web,” Lewis continues, “you're writing for a viewer who is going to have a more intimate experience. Most people watch web content alone, often on small devices. Funny has to be funnier! You can't ride a laugh track or...

My First ‘Oner’ Steadicam operator and Local 600 member Jessica Lopez talked with us about her work with Steadicam rigs. Lopez takes pride in what she does. “One of the best experiences on set was shooting my first ‘oner’. It was an eight-minute shot that took place in a one-story house. It involved a wife coming home catching her husband wearing her lipstick. “The shot mainly followed the wife as she scuffled through the house curious, confused, and upset.

Quicktime – Error 46: Could not find or load activex control

I ve struggled for months with this error message from Quicktime Player on our main Windows 7 editing system.

It took me probably 4 or 5 hours across several different days (and attempts) during down-time to FINALLY find a fix that worked. It appears the REAL problem is that virtually none of the well-meaning folks who posted fixes can write accurate instructions.

Her film In Ribbons is now in post-production. Farrell writes her own blog, which includes a series of conversations with Irish women filmmakers.

This week we ll set up to shoot an interview, and look at ways to improve audio recording quality on location. It s easy to focus solely on capturing great visuals while shooting an interview; but audio that s hard to hear, distorted, or runs together between interviewer and subject can quickly ruin a production and possibly even require a reshoot.

Irish Filmmaker Frank Kelly on Storytelling

The Filmmaker Lifestyle has started a new blog titled Creating Story . Recently I’ve connected with a number of people active in filmmaking in Ireland.
