Thank you very much for joining the Facebook groups and we hope to help experienced filmmakers as well as emerging filmmakers get their projects off the ground. Do not hesitate to e-mail us directly or via Facebook for any help, technical or administrative, to complete forms or applications to attain funding from around the world.
The income achieved in Malaysia from broadcasters have not changed for the last 20 years and inflation has escalated beyond recognition. In order to make a product of substantial content it needs to have many cuts which requires numerous camera set ups (and lighting adjustments) and editing execution.
Watch any American film today and you see a cut every 2 seconds. Long takes should not exceed 5 seconds though you may revert back to the continuation of the subject after a 2 second cut.
This is the cheap skate way to save money Eg. You interview a talking head which is all you see and you must cut to something else after 5 seconds even if the the cut is only 2 seconds and then you can revert back to the talking head for another 5 seconds at the maximum. It looks better if your reversion is trimmed down to 3 seconds. Then you cut to another visual of 2 seconds so in 10 seconds it will appear that you have 3 separate pictures.
Most emerging filmmakers attend exhibitions of hard ware in various trade shows or shopping centers and drool at the new equipment. RED CAMERA is dead and is often too costly for most young filmmakers to use. The playing field has been leveled. The new Nikon and Canon 7D will make our filmmakers have facilities as affordable as Hollywood. For further information, we suggest you subscribe to HD Video Pro Magazine and American Cinematographer.
If you want to be professional you have to keep up with what the pros do and look at their solutions which maybe affordable to emerging filmmakers today where your funding is below the required sum, you have to beg steal and borrow to get the minimum requirement.
