"Thank you. I love my milk machine and it didn't get the screen time it deserved plus I had to digitally remove the sign and shorten it and that made it evn worse. I am sure I am going to redo this jam as everything survived and i haven't had to…"
"I'm sorry James I forgot to answer you.
"jib crane.. what that wasn't a slider then.. is it just instead of using a tripod is it.. why not just use a cheap tripod then?"
Yes it is a full crane mounted on slider rails. The head can spin and rotate…"
"Cryptozoology - Found film of Bigfoot, newly discovered footage of Loch Ness, or maybe new footage of a brand new creature. Transitions could be the awful spinning newspaper or a book page turning, a book of movies?
What about a black and white…"
"I like the idea of a party, then maybe the transition could be something happening to the camera, as in it gets knocked over goes to black or something spills on it and goes to black.
Under the sea is also a cool idea then the transition could be…"
"I had planned on creating a behind the scene film with Dragon Frames new multi camera feature but got into too much of a rush.
My kids are all grown and out of the house so I have taken over the entire basement, about 270 sqft., all for hobby stuff…"
"Storm Warning was originally called Milk Run and I keep a spreadsheet of time spent and it was over 442 hours. I spent 134 of those hours on three props, 38 hours on the hover board, 52 hours on the robot, and 44 hours on the milk machine. These…"

At this point I have neither. I'm editing as fast as I can go to try and turn this train wreck into a watchable moment. I should be able to make the deadline, I just won't be a…"
"I like it. You even followed your own rules of "crashing into the camera" for beginning and end. Will you do paper animation or actually build models?
I have made four of these projects and each has had an animatic. "Spring Fever" was hand drawn on…"
"Finally starting to film. Life keeps getting in the way. I figured I would do very little testing and instead i spent a month trying to work out camera moves. Already did a re-shoot of the first 3 seconds. Did I mention that robots move very clunky…"
"I can't be on the zoom call today so here is a quick update on my progress. The set is at 80%, the puppet and his accessories are finished, one major prop just needs painted and some minor set decorations needs started. I am adding at least two…"
"Blender 3D is free and you can add sound effects and music and anything else in it's video editor. It allows you to clip the sound effects and move them to the correct frame and add multiple layers of sound. Plenty of tutorials online. My last…"
"I'm glad the deadline has moved. I wasn't going to ask but would have gladly second the motion for my time. My puppet is done, my set is half finished and 1 of two props is done. My plan to start filming on May 1st was being pushed back at least a…"
"I hope to click my first frame on May 1st but I am so far behind. Funny, just because you write it down on a spreadsheet doesn't mean it will happen that way. I had the perfect color coded plan and schedule that has all fallen apart like my last two…"
