Making A Science Fiction Movie On A Shoestring: Where Can You Cut Corners? I'm surprised that anybody would suggest shooting on film in an article on doing it on the cheap; film has so many hidden costs that digital lets you avoid ... the most significant of which is summed up in the term "Dailies". With video, you can check what you're shooting *there*. On *set*. With low-cost film gear (meaning no video tap,) that's impossible to do ... which means that if something goes wrong and you don't notice it right then, you have to go back to the location, get your actors back, dress'em up again, and all that ... or forego the shot altogether. There's a reason why Red-grade cameras are getting more and more popular, even in Hollywood. Plus, there's the wacky, wacky fun of getting the film into the editing program - because you do NOT want to edit on a flatbed. @capnrob: She said if you can afford it. @Shaftoe: aaaaaand this is why I started off with the phrase "on an article about doing it on the cheap." @capnrob: I don't disagree. Oh and I checked out your blog.

Below are two videos, the first is a conversation with Ridley Scott about his own storyboarding work, and the second is a commentary with Sam Mendes and the late Conrad L. Ridley Scott on Storyboarding: The next one is a bit long, but it's absolutely fascinating to see masters of their craft talk about the storyboards and final shots. Sam Mendes and Conrad L.

How Movie Marketing Works" It's three days before Christmas and you're out doing some last-minute shopping downtown. Sitting at a traffic light, you see a bus drive by with a huge ad for the latest Disney movie, something about a purple unicorn. You saw something last night on TV about the crazy special effects they used to make the unicorn fly. Huh, you think, maybe your kid would like to see it. At the mall, it seems like that unicorn is everywhere. Back at home, you turn on the TV and every commercial break has a different trailer for the unicorn movie.
