Hey there

I have been working and saving money for new video and photography equipment since the summer and I came up with a win-win scheme and I want to see who is interested. I am planning a summer movie that would be a lot different from anything I have done yet and would resemble closer to the theme and look of my photography.

The purpose of this project is simple, to gain experience in creating films so I may persue this as a career in the future. I can use it to build my portfolio so I have a better chance getting into better film schools when I am done high school.

I want to get out there and just do it! If it sucks, it sucks, the point is I made it. However I need to make some funds to pay for some equipment. I have my eyes on a Panasonic DVX100B, external mic and I will create a 35mm lens adapter to achieve a more 'film look' on a DV camera. Any extra money would help me get these things. I am developing a script right now but I am not ready to discuss the plot yet...

So here's my idea with you guys. A lot of people wonder how I edit pictures, so I will make a video explaining some techniques and how I do things. I can record the set-up, execution with my camcorder and then use a screen capture program to record exactly what goes on on my computer screen in Photoshop. I'd do a fun narroration too. I would make it interesting, funny and enjoyable, but also provide lots of great information in photoshop to benefit you and even some challenge entries... ;-)

For this video I would ask a donation of $25. I've seen this type of video thing here and there and I know this is a very generous price, especially since mine will rock. ;-)

I am not afraid of people 'stealing' my techniques or anything, I just thought I would share a skill that sells so I can accomplish this goal of mine.

I have already a few people interested that contact me via e-mail, but I'd love to see who's interested here on DPC.

So... Who's interested? :-)

Interested so far...

I'd buy one. Great idea, by the way - and good luck!

04/23/2006 02:06:47 PM · #3
Sure I´ll buy one too but not really for the video (don´t get me wrong, would like to get one) but mainly to support you dude, just promise you´ll spend it wisely and not on booze and chicks :)
04/23/2006 02:08:39 PM · #4
Would be interested as well-to learn as well as support. PM me if you get around to it.

You'll have to start a separate thread for the booze and chick donations...

I'm in when you get to it, PM me, or give a shout on the IM.

Yeah for sure man, thanks a lot. :-)

And I don't spend money on booze and chicks, the photos usually cover that enough... ;o)

And thanks everyone!

My friend Sarena is going to help out and be in the video and be the 'model'

Hi Joey - I'd buy one. I really would like to learn your technique. And, I hope we get to see the movie when you're done.

04/23/2006 09:21:19 PM · #14
I'd be interested, but I need to buy CS2 first since my 30 day trial is about to expire. So, count me in but down the line a little. K?

Count me in, too, Joey. I'd love to learn your technique, but mostly, I want to support you. :)

04/23/2006 10:38:22 PM · #17
i might be interested as well
04/23/2006 10:40:36 PM · #18
I would definitely buy one. My daughter took a look at your portfolio today and all she could say was "WOW!" She never says that about my pics. Sob!
04/23/2006 10:51:20 PM · #19
Put me down for $50. Thanks!

Include a couple minutes of your work behind the lens in a photo session and you've got my cash. Your PS talent is clear but you've also got a good eye and interesting ideas about shooting angles so I would appreciate seeing some of the pre-computer magic.

Thanks for the interest so far guys!
I'll hafta make it extra good or something... ;-)

Yes sir, I've already said in my post that it would include taking the picture as well. ;-)
04/24/2006 12:49:42 AM · #22
I'm interested too;)
04/24/2006 12:53:10 AM · #23
I'm intrested, you can put me down for one. Good luck.
04/24/2006 09:45:53 AM · #24
gentle *bump* in support of Joey for the morning crowd...
04/24/2006 09:55:04 AM · #25
Following the bump :O)

Put me down, Joey. I applaud you for your determination to do what it takes to get to where you want to go!! Two fold here. To take me beyond my current knowledge and to support your undying efforts!! Great job, Joey!!
