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!!!

Hey man you're never too old, I've always wanted to get into film making from a very young age but like you kinda lost my way! I've spent the last couple of years getting to know it again as a hobby and have found some great communities like this one along the way, I look forward to seeing you in the arena!!!  I'm 45 by the way!!! smile

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey everybody! My name is Damon

Having the hardest time "writing through the suck". I have two projects that mean a lot to me and have not been able to get past page 60 with either of them. I will constantly revise or re-steer the story. I haven't written a screenplay by myself in over a decade and was hoping that by joining a forum, with so many brilliantly, creative minds; I could find the answers or the inspiration I needed to get over this obstacle.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hello. I'm Andrea. I'm new to film making as well as this site. I've always wanted make films but was didn't know where to start. I kind of figured if I don't give it it a try now then I'll never do it. I did take a film class in high school and basically we never touched the cameras and the one time i did it was for a good 5 minutes. So if anyone has tips i'd greatly appreciate them. Thanks for the time to read this.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey people, I saw this mentioned introductions so I figured I'd start here.

My name is Gabriel and I'm located out in Long Beach, CA. I started getting into film at a young age, through drama and a/v club in high school.  I began editing AMVs (Animated music videos) at around fourteen or fifteen and I've been writing my own narratives ever since I figured out that letters are for more than school. Anyways this is running entirely too long for an intro so let me sum it up by saying I'll be starting film school in a few months (I'm twenty-seven but I figure you're never too old to learn something new) and I figured if I wanted to meet people who are open to collabs or need some help with their work, this would be the place to go.

Also, ty Indy Mogul for introducing me to this awesome and inspired website.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hello all!

My name is Nick and I am currently a student filmmaker. So far I've directed two short films.
If interested, here is a link to my Youtube account. It doesn't have either of my short films on it yet, however, it does have all my different class assignments. Any feedback on how I can improve will be welcomed!

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Introducing John and Ann Shaw.  Our passion is preserving personal histories on video.  But, we are getting into weddings with some personal history woven into the final product. 

I (John) was using digital video way back in the mid 1990s.  I used a Media 100 system with 9 gigs of storage on four arrayed drives.  It was expensive!  Well, I swerved away from video into programming database driven web sites for several years.  Then I got mobilized stateside and in Afghanistan for several years.  Now, I'm back to video and loving it.

Annie shares the love of history and video.  She has spent the past year or so learning Final Cut 7.  We haven't moved to 10 for fear of another learning curve.

So, glad to be here and looking forward to meeting you.  We live near Weirton, Wv in a tiny town named Colliers.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hi Everyone!

My names Simon and I'm part of Eighty Five Films. I've been a long time admirer of the site and we're now finally entering our first entry. I, like a few others have said in the past, have wanted to be a film-maker since I was at school but lost my way. I attended Uni for a year to study film at age 21 but had to leave due to personal issues. Then finally just over a year ago, I met up with an old friend and got re-involved in the film world by joining his independent production company - Eighty Five films.
I'm 28 now and looking forward to making lots more films in the future.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Greetings Everyone,
I have recently competed in a film fight so I figured I might as well say hello.  I am currently serving in the United States Marine Corps (12 years so far) and this is just a small hobby I took up for fun.  My inspiration for my current submission was from James Rolfe of  Particularly the "Mr Bucket" and "Dream Phone" videos that he made.  I started making game review videos on my channel (only have 1 completed) then I turned to my film fight theme which turned out to be a bigger project than I expected.  I have come to appreciate the work that goes into film making so time will tell where I go next with my project.  See you guys in film fights!

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey, everyone.

My name is Jason J. Phillips. I'm 15 years old, and I've been making little movies in my bedroom probably since I was 10. I used to do a lot of stop-motion animation with LEGO, but lately I've been really into a lot of the live-action stuff.

I'm currently in pre-production (script, budget, etc.) for a project that I'm working on called Letters to Kara. As I just got finished with the school year, I hope to have a lot more time to work on films. Here is a link to my YouTube channel if you want to check out what I've got. There isn't much, but I hope you like it.

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hey! My name's Aidan and I've wanted to be a filmmaker. I've never had chance to my work anywhere until now. Let's by the time I'm out of school, I'll be a filmmaking pro! Probably not, but hey, I might as well keep my hopes up!

Yours Truly,

Re: Introduce Yourself!

Hello -
My name's K. Shawn Edgar and I represent Decapitated Pitchers. I started shooting video and super8 film while at Oregon State in Corvallis. At KBVR-TV I produced a show called Northwest Morose and participated in others' shows. We shot everything from VHS, Super-VHS and Super8 film to miniDV tapes and raw digital. More recently I've mainly done short movies and political commentary on YouTube and Vimeo. Mostly create projects on iPhone now. I'm hoping to meet a few fellow video-nut-film-geeks in the Seattle/Tacoma area, and am working toward getting better audio equipment. Thanks.

Simple pictures, simple pictures.
