Re: #57 - "And Then We Made A Movie"

I love that I still get random shout-outs during the outro, despite not having worked on an episode in ages and being absent from the forums for so long.  I miss my LA peeps, especially when projects like this come around which, had I stuck around, I would no doubt be helping with in some capacity.  I hope someone shot some behind-the-scenes, making-of footage while all this was going down, because it sounds like the story of making the thing is as cool as the thing itself.  Regardless, I look forward to seeing the end result, and to the episode which will inevitably follow its release.

Also, I watched this one on YouTube and as someone who is usually working during the live shows, I'm digging being able to sort of be there, albiet after the fact.  I would, however, suggest that some consideration be done about lighting, as Teague is mostly blown out.

Re: #57 - "And Then We Made A Movie"

I'm blown out on a fairly regular basis, captain.

Oh YEAH! It would be like the end of a Jackie Chan movie! Eddie getting hit in the head with a ladder.... Brian taking a trash can lid to the face.... Teague falling off of a motorcycle.... That would be awesome.

Warning: I'm probably rewriting this post as you read it.

I think technically that would qualify as a blooper reel, but I'm not picky.

And since when am I captain? Don't make me captain, I'll pull one of those "Hey, watch this!" stunts and sink the whole damn ship.  I mean, I'd blame Teague of course, but still, probably not a good idea.

Re: #57 - "And Then We Made A Movie"

I really enjoyed this episode  big_smile

Dorkman mentioned converting the footage to 24 fps and how he'd planned to use a motion blur added in post to compensate.

What frame rate were you shooting at and why the decision to output at 24?

Re: #57 - "And Then We Made A Movie"

The short consisted of shooting interviews and verite at 24p, and featuring some archival at 30.  I made the call to output at 24 early on, I just wanted that look.

Re: #57 - "And Then We Made A Movie"

Ah that makes sense!

It sounded like you were shooting at different frame rates.

Thanks Eddie!

Re: #57 - "And Then We Made A Movie"

So we should know within two weeks whether or not we made the top 12.  Either way, once we do, we can go public with a link to it.  Hold tight kids.

We sadly didn't make the top 12.  But we'll always be top 1....in your hearts.  Here's the movie!

Killer. This might be the first Kickstarter I find a way to give money too.

Re: #57 - "And Then We Made A Movie"

Bravo Eddie et al.  Knowing almost nothing about MMA I got to the end of that and genuinely wanted to see a longer version.  The fact that it all came together in such a short time speaks to the talent of everyone involved.  Looking forward to the Kickstarter pitch!
