Don't get me wrong, I LOVE talking shop, but one thing that's surprised me a great deal about this board is how rarely anybody shows what they've been working on. I engineer and produce music and am on a messageboard for music engineers, and we're constantly sharing clips of our music and dissecting them, asking 'how'd you achive X or Y effect?', 'what mic did you use with that setup?', 'what process did you use during mixdown?', etc.

I guess I'm just curious as to why we don't do that more? I just shot some footage of my friends and I jumping off our sailboat and I plan on posting it as soon as I get it telecined, and asking for critiques - watch focus here, see how it's overexposed there, etc. In the pursuit of actually becoming a better filmmaker.

I know lots of you are professionals, and it's probably not kosher to be showing the dailies from your latest feature, but I can't be the only one here who's a hobbyist/enthusiast. Or am I?

While it's fun to pontificate about pushing Super8 to its max or the differences between Super8 and 16mm, sometimes it seems like we'd all learn more if we talked a bit less and shot more!

Hi,

Maybe they don't work so much!

You do run into copyright issues when trying to show stuff online. We are granted permission to show our work on a limited basis and then only for 'self promotion.' And you can only show once the work has already been publicly released.

I would love to see more of other people's work as well as post more of my own, but since I rarely do the post-production on the stuff I shoot it can be a pain to get screenshots, etc. I will make an effort though.

There are issues even with ameture film makers. I can't put up my 'Sleep' short when it is finnished because of film festival rules (wouldn't want anyone to think this counts as 'internet exibition')

But I got you covered, I will have some dailies posted on it (for the final film, you will have to go to a film fest, unless one decides to put it on their website. apparently its ok if they do it.) look for them mid oct, early nov.
