« Heart of Gold Guerilla Masterclass Approaches | Main |'s Stacey Parks interviews me! »

March 16, 2009


QC now goes through a computer that measures the rate of flashing (for those who suffer epilepsy) and all sorts of other parameters. It then prints out a report. Supervised by humans it can produce results that don't match the reality of the situation.

Reminds me of when the BBC showed 2001: A Space Odyssey. They 'letterboxed' to not chop off the sides, but to avoid 'confusing' viewers (their words) they filled in the black top and bottom bands with stars ONLY when the spaceship was travelling. The rest of the time the bands remained black. Howls of protests followed. So... don't put up with any rubbish from the engineers, they really don't connect with the creative side of things!

CHRIS - Great Post Alex. Yes I am saying its all creative and seeing what they come back with. I remember that 2001 screening. I was only a kid then but remember thinking, 'What on earth is that all about'? Bumb dumb dumb!

    About Chris

    I am just like you. Passionate. Crazy mad. For movies that is. Can’t get enough. Watching movies. Making movies. Talking about movies. Drives my girlfriend Lucia nuts! So yep. Passionate, crazy and mad. And yes, I am a little schizo too. Thing is, I love making films as much as I do teaching film making. Hence, Make Film, Teach Film. I have spent my life making films and sharing what I have learned with those who, like me, have been infected with the 'film virus'... I've made three feature films, action thriller ‘The Runner’, serial killer thriller ‘White Angel’ and paranormal horror ‘Urban Ghost Story’. I also co-created and authored The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series, and currently there are six editions! Most recently, I made the multi-award winning and Oscars shortlisted ‘Gone Fishing’. I run film making workshops and my offices are at Ealing Film Studios where I am currently plotting my next big adventure…
