Hi,

My friend just gave me a nice link: http://vimeo.com/14852606.

It makes you wonder why it all has to cost so much money nowadays :D.

Greetings,
Sigurd

2 hours to film < 3 minutes of footage. Given that time it would take over 60 hours of filming to get ~100 minutes of footage. Post time would go from 1 month to over 30 months.
Also, this guy has the advantage of seeing the transformation effect happen. He didn't have to develop it fully from scratch himself. He also only had 2 actors out in the middle of nowhere and they probably used their own stuff (clothes, cars, etc...). I'm guessing he didn't need any permits or block off a section of that town for his filming. Probably just stopped whenever someone needed to get through, heheh.

Fan film and it still includes the damned red-tailed hawk (http://filmsound.org/cliche/) sound...

LOL, that link is even more entertaining than the film clip. Thanks!

I forwarded this to a friend who, as luck would have it, has busted speakers on his system...

well, to make a long story short, without sound things look and feel a lot different.

His comment, "Uh, bro... there isn't some funky jazz playing in the background of this 'Nekked young men gone wild' video is there?" :question:

I tried to defend it by telling him, "Didn't you know that all young men in that age group run around in slow motion trying to look sultry to one another with their shirts off?". I mean really. Why wasn't he 'in the know' on this one huh?
It wasn't a good defense, but it was the best I could come up with while laughing coffee though my nose.

No, but using their voices for any random bird, ugly alien faces, cars, landscapes (even alien, lifeless ones) is the problem.

I'd like to edit an episode of some sitcom, with that sound effect used at the end of every sentence, instead of a laugh track, and force Hollywood sound editors to watch it, over and over again, until their ears bleed.

Only then will they stop pasting it into every show, movie and commercial.

The ubiquitous hawk cry. They always seem to screech on cue… except in real life. It's as bad as the Wilhelm Scream.

Tell me about it, though "herself" rarely shuts up, even when flying. Would be soddin' useless in the wild, every bunny for miles would know where she was! :p
