I have the first screening of the film coming up this week at my university, so it will be the first time anyone bar myself has watched the completed film
I just wish i had the money to travel- i'd love to come and see this at your uni- the dvd also sounds good- have you got any plans for selling it on a website or owt? I'd definately be interested in buying one!
Thanks for watching, glad you enjoyed the film Stormy. The 'give me a hand' was a mistake - but i also liked it so i left it, I wrote the part of Mark for a two handed person, and only found out that the actor had one hand on the first day of filming - i didn't make anything of it, just quickly went over the script in my head and saw no reason to change anything - i decided to just leave things as they were, as his sister and cousin would be used to the matter i didn't need to address it until they met with outsiders. so only minor changes were needed - but the odd thing slipped past my revisions.Daniboy, what part of the audio were worst affected by the noise? I had many audio problems in the production - the first 8 minutes of the film was recorded with a Rode stereo videomic attached to my camera, which was my back up audio recording. We recorded the whole film with a boom as the primary mic, but on the first 2 days of filming we had a issue with the Tascam recorder and I had to boost the back up volume + denoise it a lot, I'm no audio expert, in fact i hate editing audio, but i did my best with what i had. The beach scene was also problematic, as the boom picked up background noise (odd considering the mic was very directional) - and the last thing you want to have is some family/ odd old woman talking about the beach/ rocks in the background of a supposedly abandoned beach.I had a strict deadline to meet, so i had no chance to ADR the problem scenes, and a few of my actors were not local, so it would be impractical and expensive to re call them.
So did you use any FXHome products in the making of your film Darkest Days?I did not see any mentioned in your list.
Im actually making a short post war(modern day war) film my self, using your film as an example to work from . Just for visuals and stuff, I really liked the colour grading.
I think its a great scene. However.... I find however that it might not integrate very well with the rest of the film. Where exactly in the film would it go? After the fight at the derelict buildings or?
