    Hey bad asses, this is Kip from Swashbuckler Films. I have like 5 short films in various stages of a "work in progress" type situation. I had been working on this, I guess experimental film, (what ever that is) called "Loves Me Not", and put it to the wayside to work on other projects. I am OCD and I hate starting and not finishing, so I am going back to finish it. The screenplay was written for convenience, it evolved from people I am around everyday, I figured if I have to look at these people everyday, I might as well put them in a short film for practice and kill two birds with.... what ever I could find to bludgeon them with:) Twisted Evil

    The screenplay was designed so I could virtually make the short myself, cameraman, actor, writer, editor, score ect. Anyway, I may still need 2 actresses, one to play a teen mother of twins back in the 60's and the other to play a victim of a serial killer for the opening sequence. Both would have to get a little bloody and both would have CG done to them to make it look like they have had their eyes cut out.(awful huh?) If I don't find anyone soon, anyone interested post here and we can negotiate:) Peace Kip Cool

    Update.... Ya, I filmed the opening scene to this short "Loves Me Not". Lots of blood splattered and flower petals:) Having a little bit of probs keying out the blue screen effect, for some reason the actresses white shirt is being effected a bit. I'm having typical computer issues which are slowing me down (I am not a tech, most issues I figure out how to fix eventually but forget how I did it after awhile.)

    The film is about half shot.... it looks ok. I have to bring it more to life in post. Take care....Kip Whitaker jocolor

    I am filming 2 scenes today, both have babies in them. You know what they say about filming animals and kids:) My boy Ash was very good in his last scene though, he is 1 year old and he had to look like he was trying to play chess, he was really good:) I hope he does that good today:) Going to try to film in the morning also if I am not too busy with real life and procrastination.....Smile jocolor

    I only got to film one scene. Ash was great once again (Surprisingly, he's kind of a bad boy alot of the time:) It wasn't easy, he was all over that chess board immediately, I shot what I could when he let me:) It got too dark for the other scene, I will do that later I guess. I am doing a couple of voice overs and post stuff today. I am running out of HD space so I have to edit as I go. I have 3 other external drives but my Premiere hates to pull vid from them, I need more RAM, I have a gig of RAM but it's never enough:) jocolor

    I am still having problems keying out a blue screen effect. It won't tweak quite good enough. I am going to put 1 or 2 more filters on it and give it a surreal look to solve the problem without re shooting and lighting the scene and throwing blood all over the place. I don't want to re-shoot, I want to move on and get it done. It's not like the short is that important, they all are experimental at this point. I don't know who I am writing this shit for....probably just myself, but that's ok, I like reading about me;)

    I spent 3 hours editing 2 scenes and they looked pretty cool.After I rendered them out one started freezing here and there. I just thought I was low on memory but something else happened. I have to capture one of them all over again, I hate wasted time.

    I put the scene together again and it turned out ok this time and it seems pretty cool. Each scene was one continuous shot so I was just really playing with the sound FX and music. Also I had to lighten them up a bit and they got a little grainy in places, but it looks stylistic a bit (what the f*** am I talking about?) Unfortunately the scenes ran a little long making a planed 8-9 minute short to possibly 14-15. That's ok though, no one will probably see it anyway Shocked

    I transferred an AVI of the blue screen effect I was working on onto my laptop. It looks like s*** on the laptop, the filters I used to make it look pretty cool on my desktop looks like crap on the laptop, terrible. Maybe I don't have enough resources, RAM and power to tweek it. I would scrap the scene but it's important to the plot. The girl will do it over but I am going to try a few other tricks, a re shoot will be last resort because I have 3 other shorts I want to do this year. I thought I had the first 4 scenes in the can, now I don't know what I have. jocolor
