Just entered the 'Murphy's Law' fight. Hopefully one day my films will be up there with the heavyweights!! tongue Great site. Keep up the good work. I'm so excited to be getting involved.

Welcome to film fights! Can't wait to see your entry and am looking forward to competing with you in future fights.

Hi, I'm David. Not much to say about me except that I like to make movies, but I never seem to get around to it. I'll report back if it changes, maybe.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hi!
I popped up here without really introducing myself so i thought now would be a good time to do so smile
My name is Joel (obviously) and I'm a 15 year old Swedish boy who have been into filmmaking as long I can remember.
I'm a member of the group FourHand, which make all kinds of videos, mostly action, but we do completely different stuff every once in while. We reunited just a month ago after being apart for about 6 months.
I found FilmFights through IndyMogul and I'm a great fan of both Justin and Erik.
Anyway we look forward to entering lots of fights in the future, but for the moment you can see our previous work on our channel, and on our website (which we'll launch sometime this month) smile

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hello FilmFights!  My name is Harry Pound, I'm 15 years old from the Minnesota/Wisconsin boarder area.  I like to think that I've made films since I was 7 or 8 but I really took an interest in it when I turned 12.  I created a series of stop motion animations using Lego bricks as the median.  Recently I took an interest in live-action and found this site.  I'm liking the layout and community!

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey guys my names Simon and film making is a hobby for me, something I do just for fun! I've into it for years and in 2009 I got a 15 second claymation shown on BBC3 TV here in the UK as an intro for 'Family Guy'! In 2012 I got Silver in the Indy Mogul Games DIY Project video contest and also was a winner on Film Riots Monday Challenge: Reverse Effect contest that year!!! I've just entered my first fight, the Whistling Past the Graveyard' one and I made MiddleWeight which I'm happy with for my first entry, I look forward to getting to know people here!

Thanks, Simon.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hello! I suppose my handle on this website is "Ephialtes," but my real name is Geoffrey.

Currently, I'm a graduate student in the department of physics at the University of Kentucky. I did a lot of theatre in college, but I never did any film, so this whole thing is brand new to me. I just bought a relatively inexpensive camcorder and downloaded a copy of Lightworks and have been playing around with them in my spare time. As lonely as it sounds, I made an entry for the "Worst Trailer Ever" fight by myself in my apartment with a bunch of socks and blankets and pipe cleaners. But it's very exciting to be receiving largely positive responses from people.

This website seems like a pretty cool and generally positive, supportive place, so I look forward to entering more fights in the future. If there is anyone in the Lexington area who would be interested in meeting-up and talking shop sometime, let me know.

-Geoff

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey I'm Jack. I've been making videos since 2007 when I started making stop-motion animations in my basement. Since then I've gotten into Live-Action videos but still enjoy making stop-motion animation videos in my spare time. I recently finished a short film which will be released on my youtube channel on May 5th which I'm very proud of and other than that I have a lot of other videos on my channel. Check me out and give me some feedback if you have a chance. Thanks!

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hi, my name is Jon and I am a filmmaker. I run a youtube channel called giant mutant robot (youtube.com/giantmutantrobot).
I have been out of college for a year now and I am still trying to improve my film making skills. So far I think I have improved greatly from my very first short film and my most current ones. I am currently located near Dallas, TX. I am really looking for some good criticism (by good I mean giving good helpful advice and pointing out something that I may not have noticed). I plan to try to make as many short films as possible. My overall goal is to make a feature length film that I can take to a festival and maybe get it released on Netflix and Amazon, and hopefully theaters. Please check out my channel and please be constructive.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey guys! My name is Mike, and I joined FilmFights in order to craft my videomaking skills. Although I've been taking classes on making short videos here and there, I haven't really been able to put most of what I was taught into practice; I'm hoping FilmFights will give me the oppurtunity to do so. I already have a YouTube channel which features my original music and short videos; you can check it out below:

Cannot wait to enter my first fight =]

P.S.
Am I allowed to upload my videos onto my YouTube channel?

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hello,
I am Will and I am a young budding film maker and photographer with specialities and interests in graphic design and stop-motion animation.
I first heard of Film Fights through the awesome YouTube channel Indy Mogul and started looking at some of the competitions and entries that were there. They looked great and fun to do, so earlier this month I signed up and submitted my first Film Fight film which awesomely made it into the middleweights.
With more practice (and with Film Fights help - both from comments and film challenges) I hope to improve my knowledge, understanding and skills in film.
In short this is awesome.
You should totally check out and subscribe to my YouTube channel...

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey you guys! (The Goonies)

Ryan, 29, UK. Media class 2003/4 forced to pick up a camera and make a music video http://youtu.be/Wa94ZZtL8BQ the rest you could say is history.

Early-mid 2000s Jackass/CKY was pretty big in UK so spent some time mucking about but have grown up since then. Spent years since then shooting short films, music videos and local events. If you watch any of my shorts you can tell I'm a Troma/horror fan.

Crimbo 2012 shot a Crimbo music video for work that went viral and ended up in press but can't talk about that anymore as we got a lot of heat....every little helps.

Want an excuse to pick up a camera again and I've think I've found it...Film Fights:)

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hello everyone,

My name is Garret, and I'm primarily focused on acting now, but I started out wanting to do everything else, and I still am. I've made one short film, and also won a car with one of my videos. (My youtube channel): http://youtube.com/user/4690films

The short film on my channel, The Warranty Department, wasn't me acting, but I did everything else, there are lots of booboos and things I wish I could have done differently, but I was in a time crunch as it was for a class, and for the contest video (the one titled as Bakersfield Hyundai Graduation Giveaway), it was a completely solo project, with a little voice over help from a friend.

I'm currently shooting with a Rebel T3i, along with a Canon 17-35mm 2.8L, Canon 50mm 1.4, and a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8. I've got some basic and very cheap rigging, but I make it work.

I was introduced to Film Fights by a good friend of mine not too long ago (like a couple days ago) when he mentioned FFCon, and I'm super pumped to go. It looks like a blast!

Currrently, I'm trying to get started in the acting world, trying to get with an agency, going to open auditions, that sort of thing.

I'm really looking forward to interacting with this awesome community of film making goodness.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey Film Fighters!

I'm Joe. I'm very new to film making, but it's something I've always wanted to do! I'm 32 now - yeah pretty ancient for a noob. When I was just finished with high school, being a film maker was the one thing I really knew I wanted to do. Somehow I lost my way, deciding to take the road more traveled and try to make for myself a more conventional career. Well that didn't really work out either. Odd jobs, fast times, and a sort of bohemian lifestyle have been my thing all these years. It hasn't all been bad though, I've, traveled far and wide, experienced, lived, loved, had fun, made a buck here and there, lived in many different places, and met so many beautiful people.

I met a wonderful girl who is a costume designer for film and theater, and that has brought me to the land of Hollywood. Reinspired, and FINALLY having some time and money, I bought some basic equipment and am SO ready to jump in head first to what has always been a passion for me.

Hopefully I'll find you can never be too old to start doing what you've always wanted to! I hope I can make tons of great work, meet cool people, and become part of this amazing indy community I've been immersing myself in since I've started trying to learn everything I can about the craft.

I can't wait to Fight you guys!!!

Re: Introduce Yourself!

I steal money from my parent's wallets to fund my films. Not necessarily, because there really isn't any money there. My name is Silas Rowland, 17 years of age at the current cycle of Earth around the sun. I've been making films since I was 14. Started with small skits, now I am doing larger scale projects. My favorite movies are Cast Away, Return of the Jedi, and Stand by Me. My favorite genre to write and create in is Scifi.
