Articles from 'Two Adverbs'

Found a couple of useful articles on, one on writing loglines and one on writing pitches.

Although these are written with screenwriters in mind I think they will help me with festival submittions etc.

Lightroom pics

I processed a 249 pic photo album in four hours yesterday thanks to Adobe Lightroom. Can't stand putting images online without processing and so have never made albums of more than 20 pics when using Photoshop. I love this program!!

Hangrip solo shooter rig

Made this solo shooter rig using most of the parts from my Hangrip V8 kit and an extra baseplate and rail. Had to use the extra base plate to allow the lens to clear the follow focus mount. Haven't tested it in the field yet, my main concern at this point is that the weight of the shoot 35 cinefocus might cause it to shift. Might have to invest in some 15mm rails too....

Checkout for their excellent configurable camera grip solutions.

Scotsman Arts review: Dundee degree show 2010

Many thanks to Susan Mansfield for her complementary review.

'Here is a strong pack of young artists, not afraid to be large in their vision, to explore other worlds, utopian or dystopian, and to look back at our own world from the vantage point of another. And nowhere was this more clear than in Time-based Art, where a strand of ambitious narrative film is led by Matt Cameron, who seems to have enlisted most of his classmates as the crew of his short film, Meta. The result is a gritty sci-fi drama of parallel worlds and life-sapping addictions which would stand comfortably alongside professional low-budget films.'
