About

One Man Movie (OMM) is a short, 6-8 minute action flick that is being made entirely by myself. I'm doing the writing, directing, acting, editing, music, graphics, and promotional stuff with no help from anyone else. And no, I did not build the camera from scratch, write the software, create the fonts, effects packs, nor the characters clothing. Those are all props and tools. What's a man without his tools? Despite the the short length of the film, it will be weeks (months?) from now before it is completed due to the technical craziness required in order to have multiple characters played by the same person coexist and interact on the same screen. It shouldn't be a problem though. Just time consuming. This blog will follow my day-to-day experiences on developing and releasing the film, mainly because I need SOMEONE to rant to so I don't leak it to real life people. I started the project in early September, when I wrote the story and created the musical score. From then until late September, I fleshed out the story, collected props, and finally bought a slightly better camera. Filming began in late September.

Welcome to the New Blog

Hey guys. This blog used to be called "BobComboBreaker", where I, "BobComboBreaker" would rant about life and a movie project. Now that the movie project is about to begin production, it's time to shift into 100% movie-blogging mode.

Time to reveal some things.

First, my name's not Bob, it's Dillon. Instead of going by BobComboBreaker, I often use the name "Food" around the webs.

My "movie company" is Foodstuffs Productions, or FoodstuffsFilms, however you wanna call it.
This is the logo I made for the company in Photoshop. I did this in December, and I haven't really done anything movie-related since then (except learn some more editing techniques and show my friends some short edits that I've made), because people suck and don't want to exploit my talents I have weaknesses and I need other people to fill in for them. For now, I have to do things on my own, until I can make something REALLY awesome and really convince people what I'm worth. This is partly why I started One Man Movie.

Here's a very low-res version of the animated logo for Foodstuffs Films that I made in Sony Vegas. What a pain that was. I probably should've used Adobe Premiere or After Effects. I love Sony Vegas though. I also made the little song in FL Studio (FruityLoops) 9.

"We" have a YouTube account but there's nothing on it yet. The OMM trailer and movie will be uploaded there when they are finished.

Anyway, that's Foodstuffs Films. Back to One Man Movie....

I still haven't found the main location, but the first scene in the movie does not take place there, and I have a place for that scene. Filming of that scene will occur tommorow morning.

Here's the movie poster :D


The headline is misleading, but catchy enough to work.

peace.

  3. Great design. I used Vegas to edit some montages for people - and it overall is wonderful at basic editing as long as there isn't a need for over-dramatic effects. I would definitely recommend Adobe After Effects for...effects. :D
