Is filmmaking discussion welcome here?

So, I'm about to buy my first entry-level professional camera. I can't decide between getting a Panasonic GH2, hacking it and buying some lenses or getting a GH4 with a single lens.

People online worship the hacked GH2, and I've seen some amazing results with it (Upstream Color by Shane Carruth being a hell of an example), however it seems that the GH4 truly is the future of DLSR entry-level cameras, with my only problem being the $600 difference in price.

What do?

Shot my latest on a GH4 and my previous with a hacked GH2


SAND BOYS - latest. Two men who exist eating only sand - comedy



I will download and watch



Well done! First I thought it was 5deep9me but soon it all made sense.

The creativity of this project stands out for me. How did you develop the sand language? Everything looks great, especially some of those giant clouds near the end.

Your accent sounds a bit mid-atlantic .... have you spent time in the states or maybe watched a lot of american movies?



would you mind telling us which beach you used? it looks like a nice place.

Have any of you shot footage with a drone? I always think about buying one but I don't know if I'd have enough opportunities to use it. Thoughts on the DJI Phantom?

Otherwise post any cool drone clips you've seen

fellow lainanon here, mainly for /lamda/


I never paid attention to lainchan

how true is the ED description

> A site for wannabe hackers into cyberpunk. The owner, kalyx, has no standards - begs for money for his apple shit. Their mods are power tripping asswipe faggots (despite the site claiming they're not).


On this subject where is the dedicated bunker of /film/? When 8ch was hacked I didn't know where to go... Endchan was totally dead for the couple days besides one other anon. I think that 8ch is heading down the shitter and a dedicated backup might not be a bad idea.



Kalyx no longer owns it so that's inaccurate.



The bunker for /film/ is on Endchan, yes. That doesn't mean I want to go there permanently if 8ch dies. It would be easier to use 8ch.pl since it's built on the same software as 8chan.

Most of the time I watch films by chance. I go to a list if I want to watch a particular style/genre/country


If you liked Face of Another, you might like Seconds

As for parajanov I would like more ideas too. Countries like Ukraine and Georgia have a very interesting aesthetic. You could try Yuri Ilyenko and Tengiz Abuladze. I think both have been mentioned before on /film/ so I'm not bringing anything new



What style/genre/country are you currently interested in?



I'm not focused on anything specific right now. So I will watch things mentioned on /film/ or elsewhere that strike my interest

I thought about watching more Parajanov, perhaps one of the documentaries about him, but I'm disappointed to discover that 'not one of his films are on BD yet

Is pic related a horror film?


Gozu and Tetsuo are a trip. Have you seen Shinya Tsukamoto's more recent horror film Kotoko? Riki-Oh is fun.



Pic unrelated. I only saw Tetsuo trilogy by Shinya Tsukamoto.

But, films like Vengeance trilogy, I saw the devil, The Wailing, Audition etc. are welcomed, if you want to recommend.



>Have you seen Shinya Tsukamoto's more recent horror film Kotoko?

Didn't knew that one, thanks for the info, it's on the list now


So does half of Miike's movies count? Ichi the Killer is a must and his collaboration with Park Chan Wook was decent, 3 Extremes was called i think, haven't seen it sober thou

Nice quads


It was an appealing little thing, nice job. The only thing I'd say is maybe invest in a tripod, but really, you should be proud of this.



I'll watch yours if you watch mine, OP.

Shot in 4 days for £180. One man film crew.

Two men who exist by eating only sand. Black comedy.




solid concept with lots of potential for material.

What did you film this with? An iphone or a DSLR from before 2011? The aesthetics seemed very plain and dull. Did you film this using automatic mode?

Why did you use handheld shots then switch to tripod shots for CU? I already know the answer but you do realize that if you go back and forth between static and dynamic shots, it can be jarring to the viewer. In this case, it was obnoxious because it wasn't done proper.

Next time get an audio guy as well, or just buy a cheap smart lav and hook it up to your iphone. You *need* proper audio gear, camera mics are *never* an option unless your established or an its arthouse.

Read Five C's of Cinematography too.

Almost three years later, but I'll offer some of my own thoughts. You really need to either get a handheld rig to reduce the annoying jittering. Also learn how to light scenes, because it looks like you relied solely on natural lighting for shots that need set up. The blonde kid should have been yelling, not pretending to yell. You need to really focus on the different elements and hone them in. There were some funny moments, and you should be proud that you completed the project but strive to improve.


Nice cinematography, what did you shoot this with, and how much storage did the footage take up?

Thanks, I already started watching some works from Fassbinder. Do you have anything from Kluge to suggest? What about Haro Senft, is he good?


I haven't seen it yet, but i have been recommended Willi Tobler by Kluge, looks really interesting as well



I think Yesterday Girl is another important one from Alexander Kluge. It's more of a political film, somewhat like The Tin Drum.

I don't know much about Haro Senft unfortunately.

No, it's not that. I said it was foreign, probably eastern european or something. That movie is pretty harsh by american standards, but I am talking FULL nudity.

I saw a webm of it on Librechan before it went down. Even for a foreign movie, that's pushing the boundaries.

Fucking French...




Yep, that's it. I did not expect it to be on YouTube, what the fuck.

Fucking French make me sick, I don't how the fuck they get away with shit like this, though even this is pushing it. Out of context, it looks like a clip from an actual CP or snuff film.

Just, what the fuck is wrong with France. You could easily do that scene without showing anything.



I have not watched the whole movie but I can't imagine how that would fit with the rest of it



How did you find out about it then?

Hey, /tv/

Does anyone here know how I can find the book of concept art for Mad Max: Fury Road without ordering it over amazon? I've really wanted to get my hands on this book, but haven't found a single torrent with it. Anyone have a link to a torrent site that has it? Anyone got it uploaded?

The art looks really amazing, can't wait to read it.


this is not /tv/ but your best bet is a comic or ebook tracker

i'm not on any so that's all i've got


Just buy it and stop being such a cocksucker.



>watch in amazement as each page becomes more and more generic and hollywood



Any films where this did not happen? I totally agree, looking through the design suggestions in any art-of book tends to show this trend. What's the point of hiring all these highly skilled artists when you'll just use whatever's always worked(case in point-major animation houses)?



1. to sell art books

2. to pretend you did a lot of work, and whatever didn't make it in "we'll save it for the sequel"

Hopefully you missed this board--at least a little bit.

Codemonkey was able to recover most threads and posts after the site database was deleted by a hacker. Some post elements are still missing but there are ways to fill the gaps. If you notice anything that needs to be fixed, please reply to this thread.

For reference, /film/ is archived in two places:

Official: https://archive.8ch.net/threads.html#!film

Internet Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/*/8ch.net/film/index.html

I'm able restore embeds by editing individual posts. Images with a /file_store/ URL can be restored if the same file is uploaded anywhere on the site. At least I hope that works. Older images with a /film/src/ URL cannot be restored because I cannot edit post attachments.

I'm disappointed that many flags are gone. Country flags have been part of the character of this board since the beginning. Unfortunately there's not much I can do about that either.

Perhaps you visited the endchan bunker during the downtime: https://endchan.xyz/film/ . We also own https://8ch.pl/film/ . For now these boards are backup options just in case things don't work out here.

OK that's it. Welcome back everyone. I hope we haven't lost too many people.

> 8chan's alternative sites are mostly about politics, video games and anime

This site is dominated by those topics too. I'm convinced there are a lot of other interesting boards on 8chan, but there's no way to quickly check them all. You have to visit each board individually. Since niche topics have slow boards most people don't even bother. I wish 8chan had a customizable multiboard - view all your favorites as a single board.

Also it'd be cool to see a notification when one of your favorites gets a post. For example you'd see /film/ (1) in the topbar.



I totally agree.


I did miss the board, even when i haven't picked up my speed to post something relevant here, but


>And it's on 8chan

After some events last week, saying this became not very good at all, not good at all in my personal opinion due to technical and moral reasons regarding the staff and their intentions

While i doubt they would care about us, share threads that last well over a month can get noisy for them, those who have lied and played with others to remove or even dox users

Politricks aside, glad this one is back



I've been unhappy with the 8chan administration for a long time. I don't want you guys to think I have loyalty to them, given their duplicitous behavior and general apathy toward improving the site. I gave serious thought to leaving during Infinity Next (which I hated). That's when I started making alternative /film/ boards. Leaving will always be an option, but I'd want a consensus from people here.



If anything, no homo intended, i've only seen you and maybe the guys at /bane/ and /polk/ being the only decent BO's around here, so no hard feelings perceived here so far. Quite the company too

This last event did bring a lot of heat in plenty of folks, some outsider boards revived with traffic, and long-term ones as far as i've seen (8.pl, the /a/ bunker, spichan did get some users)

Doing a consensus vote here might be difficult, for starters it seems we don't even need one due to the pacific nature so far. If we get heat from that one thread, that's when things get shady. Kinda what happened with the old painless /rs/ back in the day

It will all depend if a specific search for a movie redirects people here, which doesn't seem the case, i tried 5 movies from the request thread and the de-listing from Google works (only brings results when one puts the name of site explicitly)

tl;dr All looks OK here, for now

It's not but most people here are American so I try and use American slag if I can.


Did that it was fine my mum likes the film.


Kubrick was more of an example he is very entry level and anyone can really enjoy the Shining, I was more getting at how to get normies out of just watching Hollywood and a few very popular non Hollywood films.


You can't, simple as that.

Most normies have zero artistic sensibility. Beauty flies directly over their head, as does meaning.

You could present them them with works of pure artistic genius and they would have the emotional response of your avarage brick.

Do not bother my man. Normies have no soul.

t. virgin loser



legit question

how can you enjoy an art film with themes of romance, love, and sex if you're a virgin? I mean you can admire the composition/use of color/lightning/camera movement but you've never actually experienced what's going on onscreen and what it is portraying, you can't get an emotional response from it, unless I'm mistaken

also I'm not saying virgin equals unloved or unloving.


File: 8ae4f4a046187e0⋯.jpg (Spoiler Image, 26.24 KB, 511x428, 511:428, feel.jpg)


Well, I speculate about how good being loved must feel based on my knowledge of how bad it feels to be unloved.

Also it's not as though the images don't speak for themselves. However I must admit that I always find some melancholy hidden in films dealing with love. So there's that. Now that I think of it, I can't recall any love film that was a pleasurable watch if not in a masochistic way. Maybe that's what you meant. So while I'm able to "get" these films in the sense of identifying positive emotions (only a total retard or autist wouldn't be able to do so), these images do not necessarily resonate with me in a positive way. But they do evoke strong emotions nonetheless.

Here's his most famous student film. It would become the basis of his first feature film.


And here is an interesting article about the Star Wars prequels.

What do you guys think of this man?

Personally, I think that he's the most misunderstood person to ever direct a movie.

Every single film he's made has been worthy of study and interest.

From his earliest student films to Revenge Of The Sith.

Seems like everyone did, i heard the same with Serge Silberman, or was it Ran/Dreams?

Bizarre that Kurosawa needed any support from anybody other than publishers, taking into account his extremely strong reputation

Haven't understood the whole financing issues with his 80's projects, maybe publishers avoided him due his supposed arrogance/him being an old man

It's about how man is out of step with nature in a bad way (we move too fast), but how nature is still much more powerful than we are.

Notice speed. The car zipping by. The camera focusing on the filmmakers in the desert (after it had been on the animals), followed by sped up footage.

Then it stops dead, and shows us the power nature has to wash away our works, and to turn out the lights.

And this was a STUDENT film!

I can't stress enough how overlooked George Lucas is as a filmmaker. It's almost become an obsession for me.

I am very saddened we will never see what George had in mind for Episodes VII, VIII & IX.

Too bad a rather vocal part of the ‘fans’ caused him to end his film-maker career early, and sell Star Wars.

I suspect a growing number will begin to re-evaluate their opinion on him and his work in the coming years. You don’t hear fans of the OT only mention that ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ got mixed and even bad reviews when it came out.

I watch many films that most people would consider bad. I do not mean overproduced films that critics hate, like Transformers, but just movies that most people dislike for objective reasons. I think watching movies that are of lower quality really inspires me and keeps my brain engaged, thinking of ways to improve the movie, what the director could be thinking and why things turned out the way they did.

Isaac Asimov said that the best source of inspiration for him was through watching mildly interesting movies.

I believe an important part of being a connoisseur in anything is to consume a lot of shit. Do you agree?

Tinto Brass? I celebrate his entire catalogue. It's more "erotic" than hardcore




Please tell me this is what it looks and sounds like and this is the same guy as in "Monella", and he actually made a series of movies where he's a rich guy irresistible to all women with a 3 foot long dick. I want to believe.

Any chance you can direct me to a good download/torrent of all or some of his films in decent quality?
