  • Tape your microphone to a broomstick and hold it just above and in front of your actor's head, out of frame.

    Yeah I think this was great. Just fix the sound issues and this would have been in is my guess.
    Even if you took some tone and then laid that in so the cuts aren't so abrupt. How are you guys doing sound? It looks like you have a mic now. Get a boom and a recorder next.

  • I'm a fan of Bait Kid and I think we fucked up by not putting it in the screening.

    I think the reason it got voted out (it was really close) was because we were all a little nervous about the production quality. This is another step in the right direction, but the sound quality and audio edits are still a little sloppy and some of the camera stuff is pretty crusty.

    Indy Mogul has made some awesome tutorials over the years. I just dug around and found these, which could be helpful:
