Hooray for Filmmaking: Part 2

I got to see the rough cut of the fiction project today. It's freakin' awesome! It's got comedy, drama, suspense, a twist ending, and some really nice camera work by yours truly. Heh heh. I'm excited.

The final screening is on Friday night, so I'll have access to the tape after that. I'd like to put it online like I did with the documentary. However...

For that project, everyone in it signed a release giving us permission to use footage of them for any purpose. This project didn't work that way, and a couple of the actors are really self-conscious, sometimes to the point where they can't even watch the scenes they're in. This is what happens when film students get in front of the camera.

Anyway, I'm not sure if they'd be too happy about the film being on the Internet, but since we're screening it in front of 50-100 people this weekend, I doubt they'd mind a dozen more seeing it. And that's a generous estimate. Besides, what they don't know can't hurt them...right?

I'll have to think about this one.
