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.

Saturday 10/9 - Split Screen Revised

Last night I watched Hot Fuzz. Awesome movie. I love how Edgar Wright's movies have all those crazy quick cuts. I liked it enough that I revised the split screen clip so it's faster and awesome-er. Check it out.

Do you like it more than the original?

Also, I CAN type with two hands, if I lean over the keyboard. Yay.

peace.

  5. I think the original was better. Harder to focus on what's happening here. I'm not a fan of the ADD inspired quick cut, so much information at one time.

    Good to hear about your arm.

  12. The original "Thomas Crown Affair" used the split screen technique more languorously.
