Make Money Making Movies... by Film Anchor  
We are not going to kid you. Making money making movies is hard work and it doesn't come easy. This is the real deal: if you want to make a living from movies if not to be rich, you have to think business. Think about what the audience wants to see. It is NOT about what you want. This website provides a bunch of helpful articles to help you on your way of becoming a successful moviemaker.

Most feature films are produced either by the major Hollywood studios or by hundreds of U Louis Vuitton handbags.S. and foreign independent production companies. The independents range from major companies just below the rank of the well-financed, all-purpose studios, to medium and small continuing companies, to firms that go bankrupt after just one production.

Since the introduction of DV technology, the means of production have become more independent; called independent filmmaking. Filmmakers can conceivably shoot and edit a movie, create and edit the sound and music, and mix the final cut on a home computer. However, while the means of production may be independent, financing, distribution, and marketing remain difficult to accomplish outside the traditional system.

Most independent filmmakers rely on film festivals to get their films noticed and sold for distribution post by haiyan902. However, the Internet has allowed for relatively inexpensive distribution of independent films; many filmmakers post their films online for critique and recognition. Although there is little profitability in this, a filmmaker can still gain exposure via the web.

The filmmaking production cycle consists of five main stages: 1-Development, 2- Preproduction, 3-Production, 4-Post-production, 5-Distribution.

Technologies such as DVD, FireWire connections and professional-level non-linear editing system software make movie making relatively inexpensive.

Popular software (including commercial, consumer level and open source) includes: Avid Xpress Pro, Cinelerra, Kino, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express, iMovie, Sony Vegas,

Popular digital camcorders, mostly semi-professional equipment with 3-CCD technology, include: Canon, GL2 XL-1s, XL-2, Panasonic AG-DVX100/AG-DVX100A/AG-DVX100B , Panasonic AG-HVX200, Sony VX-1000/2000/2100, Sony PD-150/170. Most of these camcorders cost between US$2,000 - $5,000 in 2003, with costs continuing to decline as features are added, and models depreciate.

Additionally, open source software holds the potential for increasing high-level editing capabilities being available for also increasingly lower prices, both free and paid software. I would recommend to take a look at this website /index.htm.

Pearl Jam Rock Music CD Review by Clyde Lee Dennis  
Pearl Jam is the latest Rock CD put out by the extremely group Pearl Jam and they have once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks. Im confident Pearl Jam fans, and Rock fans alike will be pleased with this one.

These days its a very rare CD on which every single song is good or better than the one before it. This CD is certainly one of those rare CDs.

This CD literally grabs your attention right from the very first note with Life Wasted and doesn't let go until the very last note of the very last song Inside Job, which is another great track by the way.

One of the refreshingly nice things about this CD is the way all of the participating artists seem to be really enjoying themselves. Combine that with the overall presentation and youve got one of Pearl Jam most impressive releases ever.

Overall Pearl Jam is an outstanding release. Quite possibly Pearl Jam's best to date. Really sensational from beginning to end post by haiyan902. If you're even mildly into Rock music you'll enjoy this album.

Im of the opinion that Pearl Jam is certainly some of this groups best work in a few years. A totally enjoyable CD and an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up because its a collection that even the casual Rock fan can appreciate and enjoy.

Listen to and I think youll agree that the song choices are excellent, the production is outstanding and Pearl Jam is clearly a group that is in top form.

While the entire CD is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 2 - World Wide Suicide, track 5 - Marker In The Sand, and track 10 - Wasted Reprise.

My SmoothLee Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 12 - Army Reserve. Its a great track!

CD Track List Follows:

1 Louis Vuitton outlet. Life Wasted 2. World Wide Suicide 3. Comatose 4. Severed Hand 5. Marker In The Sand 6. Parachutes 7. Unemployable 8. Big Wave 9. Gone 10. Wasted Reprise 11. Army Reserve 12. Come Back 13. Inside Job

Anniversary party games and printable activities such as Desert Island and Charades will make an Anniversary Party very special.

Regardless of which anniversary a couple is honoring, most people will enjoy celebrating an occasion with family and friends. Therefore, the games and printable activities used at this party should depend on the number of guests that are invited. More often than not, most Anniversary parties are quite small, but others such as 25th, 30th and 50th are much larger. Making an Anniversary Party unique can happen with games and printable activities designed or prepared especially for the party. Desert Island is a game that can be played with two or more couples post by haiyan902. The scenario for the game is that each couple is given a large sheet of bulletin board paper and must pretend they are on a desert island surrounded by water; the only way they can survive is to stand in the middle of the white paper without stumbling into the water.

When everyone has stood on the paper the hostess will then tell them to step off, fold the paper in half and then stand on the island again. Once this has been done they fold the paper again and repeat this step, until only one couple is standing on their island. Most often Anniversary party guests will enjoy playing an assortment of games or printable activities that are interactive.. For this reason, games such as Memory Tray, Charades and various types of trivia games are very popular. Additionally, printable activities are also ideal for this party. From Anniversary Party Word Search to Anniversary Party Create a Word, having printable activities at an Anniversary Party will make the party a lot of fun Louis Vuitton. These simple games are perfect for almost any type of party and will keep the guests involved in the action. Other printable activities like Anniversary Party Find a Word, Anniversary Party Mazes and similar games are also very popular.

Anniversary Party Games and Printable Activities such as these and others are designed to involve everyone at the party in a fun and involving experience.

Don't Make Simon Cowell Do Your Parents' Dirty Work by Bob Craypoe  
Simon Cowell, as a judge on American Idol, has earned himself somewhat of a reputation of being cruel when telling contestants when they haven't quite measured up. People are often shocked at his brutal honesty and (perhaps) lack of tact. But, in some ways, he may just be doing the contestant a favor. One the contestant's parents should have done.

The fact is that, in our modern western society, we have reached a point at which we don't want to say anything to a child that may hurt his feelings; even when it may be more beneficial for the child to be truthful. One word that is seldom used these days when raising children is the terrible word no. Oh, little Jimmy wants an all ice cream diet. Sure he's morbidly obese and already has diabetes at the age of 12, but if I say no, his little feelings will be hurt.

So what ends up happening is that by not hurting a child's feelings, we jeopardize his health. Now the above example is extreme but I think it illustrates a point. The point being illustrated is that telling people something nice for the sake of not hurting their feelings isn't always the right thing to do. Sometimes honesty is the best approach.

Among the harsh realities of life is that, to actually get good at something, you usually have to apply yourself. That includes music. To become a good musician, it may involve some level of dedication and hard work. You may even (dare I say it?) have to practice. You may even have to crack open a book and study some music theory. I know this may seem like a radical approach but there are some people out there that think that this approach actually works.

One approach a parent can take when a child is interested in music is to give a compliment and then follow it with the criticism. A parent could say "I like that, but if you changed this, I think it would be even better." You got the criticism in of what's wrong, directed them towards where they can fix what's wrong but you also made a point of complimenting them in the process. Complimenting them in the process softens the blow of the criticism.

A child needs to know that in order to excel at anything, they need to apply themselves. Telling them that everything they are doing is flawless doesn't achieve that. This could apply to anything we attempt to teach our children, not just music.

Some may say to me "what makes you such an expert on raising children?" I say in return: "I'm not an expert on raising children post by haiyan902." My expertise lies in teaching people about how to play guitar and how to learn music theory. I understand how important music theory is as well as how important it is to apply yourself in order to become a good musician.

In my experience of teaching guitar and music theory, I have come across a number of people who, prior to having met me, had very little understanding of how much they would need to apply themselves in order to excel as a musician. I believe that quite often it is as a result of their parents never explaining to them that applying themselves is a prerequisite to getting good at something. Sometimes the parents will do that with some things but not with music.

Music is often seen as something fun or enjoyable to do and not often seen as work. Unfortunately, if you want to do it as a profession, then you have to actually "work" at it. That means that you have to take it a bit more seriously than the average person who is just playing guitar as a hobby. That's what separates a professional from an amateur or wannabe.

So if Mom and Dad never told you what you should work on in order to improve as a musician, then you may want to do a self-assessment. If you're a singer, tape yourself. Listen to your self and try to be honest. Don't get too discouraged if you finally come to the realization that you're not as good as you thought you were. There are ways of fixing that. It's called practice. If you play guitar or some other instrument, you can do the same. Tape yourself. Be somewhat critical. Are you playing in time Louis Vuitton? Are you playing the notes clearly?

If you adequately assess yourself as a musician, apply yourself and work on your faults, you will get better. There is no doubt of that. And if you do that, then maybe someday Simon Cowell or someone like him won't have to do your parents' dirty work. Maybe Simon will tell you that your performance was great! At least with him, you know he's not just saying that to spare your feelings.
