Do what feels right or DIE


Hey hey I'm talking makin films here not real death... so "death" would be failing to complete it or making complete fail... It can be so confusing and GUT, FACE, and MIND wrenching to make a feature film... while like a good one... or maybe even a great one... there's so much crap out there about screenplay structure, pacing, story elements etc etc... that your always like WAIT am I doing this right? Does my film have what these "great" films have? WAIT AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?!?! ^ ^

There's a BILLION different ways you can go and there isn't ONE or even FIFTY rules for success meh thinks not... BUT if you DO follow all the rules you'll probably just end up making something safe and mediocre.... not bad but not great...ultimately forgettable... to me that is fail...

SO yeh after all teh madness and research and constant reevaluation and editing I have to say that you just need to do what feels right... the real films inside you are NOT going to be like other films IF you are being yourself and channeling your true individual into them... SO the only thing to do is DO WHAT FEELS RIGHT because your the only one that knows... your the only one... so trust yourself...

LIKE with HSM I'm always like THIS IS FUCKING CRAZY?! Its like comedy one moment then evil as FAWK the next then its like elegant, beautiful and graceful then its psycho WHILST always being in control as far as the ultimate narrative goes... there is no other film or formula I can compare it to so I just have to trust myself.... because if I try to force it into being something else it will fail...

Live by the strange... die by the strange says I....

  2. hey m dot do you use pyro cluster at all?
    cause I'm rendering this super short little thing where a bunch of pyro cluster fire spins around an emitter using the turbulence and attraction and rotation effector things
    and iso far it's taken 20 and a half hours of rendering and it's only on frame 217 out of 500 o.0
    so i was wondering if there was something else easier on the system to make fire lookin things
    (in c4d OBVIOUSLY lol)

  3. Kinda unrelated but I have a question, A render node is just an extra computer right? Cause I got a old winXp laptop and I was gonna see if I could turn it into a render node but I haven't the slightest clue how...Guess I can google it too ^__^

    Glad bag, lols.

    That was awesome dood. You're so natural about everything you do.

    That mic is pretty sweets. I'll be doing some voice overs soon, do you recommend any semi-cheapy mics out there? Or would just like a headset suffice for decentness?
