Like Father Like Son – Our Entry Into The 54 Hour Film Fest

I recently competed in the 54 Hour Film Fest in Murfreesboro, TN. It was a fun competition and I had the opportunity to help out a friend by doing location sound for him. Our category was time travel. We had a blast and the replacement director came up with a great way to show time travel. Don’t let me be the judge though. You judge for yourself. Enjoy and please comment below to let us know what you thought of the film.

Cheers! And Kepp Makin’ Movies!

Casting Process and Casting Call Dos and Don’ts – Film Riot

Casting Comments From The film Riot Guys

This is a great video for anyone who is new to casting or just plain needs some fundamental help with the task. There is nothing worse than a casting director with an attitude. Remember, you are dealing with people and people deserve to be treated with respect.
On the other hand, please make absolutely sure that the talent is coachable as well as capable of pulling off the role they are auditioning for. A bad actor or bad choice of actor can spoil your film.

My little tip:

Sometimes, I will ask an actor to do something ridiculous that makes them feel silly or stupid. If they do it and take it in stride, they are more likely to have the kind of personality to take things in stride on set.

Enjoy, and I’d love to hear your comments below. Make sure to follow on Facebook!


Film Riot – Mondays: Character Development & Keeping Continuity!

Film Riot – Mondays:

Ryan answers the viewer questions including character development and Upercut the Butt remixes (my personal favorite). He also recommends the short film Duet directed by Glen Keane. The only criticism I have of the film is the unrealistic lifetime of the dog. What a great animation. It looks like it’s frame by frame art, but I could be wrong. Have a look by clicking the link above and make sure to comment on your thoughts on this episode of Film Riot with Ryan Connolly below in the comments box. If you want to edit like Ryan and many others, make sure to get your Adobe Premiere Pro CC [Digital Membership]¬†and you’re good to go. Once you edit something, send us a clip or trailer and we’ll be glad to feature it here on the site. Until next time, keep making movies!
