I am a one man band type film maker, that helps parents help their kids realize their dream of working in the film industry. So many parents spend huge amounts of money on their kids acting but never win a role in a film as they have no on location experience. That's where I come in. I use to fill the gap. I volunteer my time, equipment and money. 1983 - 2023 40 years of film production.

New prop build
I'm now planning to build a ice cream bike for the U12 Boys Diving film project. I'm looking for old bike parts, some old plywood scrapes and a set of bells to go on the bike handle.

Not much happening last week. Not much happening this week. I do need to have a meeting with actors parents to give them the diving lesson money. I will most likely film a quick thank you video.

new camera bike convertion
I drove 6 hours round trip to pick up an old trike Michael purchased to convert into a camera bike. I took it for a test drive and wow does it mess with the biking brain. We may need to convert it to a bike trailer to use as a camera bike.

Lily's Ghost Story

Im gathering up all the information I need to write the script with in the limts placed on it. Sloane's mother has offered her privet campsite for one of the filming locations. This will help out alot to keep within the strick budget. I have updated my website to include the new feature film project.

To QHR or not to QHR?
We are currently planning to do a QHR Report with Conan at a Toronto event. It will cost $80 in gas and $50 in entry fees. Parking is free. So $130 is the cost. At 38 cents per 1000 YouTube views it's going to take 342,120 views to break even. Humm

I just updated the website. I added Lily's Ghost Story feature film project to the list of films this year. I will be filming it in May and June 2023. The bugdet is $100. Can a feature film be made for $100. We shall find out.
Saturday, 4 February 2023
I'm just kicking back, watching some movies and plotting script points. I have a fourth script project in the works. We may film it in May. My plan is to try and make a film for just $100. Can it be done?

A Huge Thankyou
A great big huge thank you to DJ for his donation of $500 towards getting the U12 Boys Diving Feature film project. It's going to help out 100% to keep it moving forwTd and helping the actors build their resume' and on set acting experience they need to find work in the industry.

The cast Screening is done so now it's time to move onto the next project. I'm on page 40 of Ghost of Thunder Lake. I have no actors interested in working on this film yet. My guess I will be finding all new actors for the project.
All the actors of Greg's Treasure Map are interested in U12 Boys Diving and Zombie Zone. I'm not quite ready to write the U12 film yet but I'm getting close.
The zombie zone 82 film I have the script outline ready to go but it's always hard to give the caritures a voice. I need to hang around with a bunch of kids to refind how they talk and interact.

We had the cast screening today and the cast really liked the film. We filmed a QHR report on the event with reporter Ezra.

Looking at $3,000 or so for a M2 Mac Mini with 32 GB Ram, 1TB storage and using proxy files for editing 4k that should work fine. Then it's just some kind of 4k monitor. Ugh
For summer 2023
For summer 2023 I should really buy some fast hardrives for editing 4k video. Here is a link recommended buy a YouTuber. There are faster drives but they are huge money and I require 3 drives one for each feature film project. If any one is interested in helping out three of these drive are on my wishlist. My shipping address in on my website should anyone be compelled to donate a drive or two. Thank you for your support. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B079HGSFY5?keywords=lacie+5tb+rugged+usb-c+portable+hard+drive&sprefix=lacie+5tb,aps,85&th=1&ref_=as_li_ss_tl&language=en_US&sr=8-3&linkCode=gg2&linkId=89b7a1efce46c3f21d8ec4103ea3d8b9&tag=lifeprogre097-20

Digital cinema package
Just got an email that the Digital cinema package file I made works fine on the theaters projector. She says it looks really good. That's one huge stress off my shoulders.
Script writing and casting is the next huge task at hand.

One thing we need to help make films is a wireless plug on transmitter for our boom pole.
Or the best idea is a kit like this so the two parts work to get her for sure. Same price as the two parts. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1385591-REG/sennheiser_ew_100_eng_g4_a1_ew_100_eng_g4.html

I dropped the files off at the cinema today for the cast screening of Greg's Treasure Map. It's a private screening. Hopefully the projectionist test works or I will be quickly building a new file.

4K video editing
With the new camera I'm now working on a replacement computer that can edit 4k video. I'm thinking to go with DaVinci Resolve as it's free. I have my old freind Goerge working on putting an old video gaming computer together that can run the software. Hopefully it doesn't cost much as it's all used parts but he may also just give it to me for free. 20 years ago I donated a brand new $1200 computer to his kids so they could play videos games.
