Portland actors:

WHY DON'T YOU HAVE A REEL?

You're killing me here, Smalls. I have a client that wants talent, I have gone through two dozen actors on casting sites in town and one, ONLY ONE, had a reel and it was four years old. You are missing out on work. Get a website, or a web page, or something. SMDH!

11/18/2019

I am still on the lookout for a location. I really appreciate the folks that have reached out and I am sorry those didn't work out. The client is very specific about their needs.

Those needs being a a house with an open floor plan. Hardwood floors and hardwood cabinets in the kitchen. Lots of space and lots of hardwood. If you know of ANY PLACE like that, please let me know. The clock is ticking for this production.

Thank you!

11/11/2019

Hey folks, I am in need of a location. A house with wood floors, in which we can clean them for a commercial spot. It is a two day shoot, with budget, you get a clean floor and kitchen out of it. Small crew, two days but not long days. If you are someone you know is interested, please let me know ASAP!

I am looking for five cars from the 1990s to use in a music video out in Garibaldi this coming Monday, October 28th. They have to be 1990s models. There is pay, not just the warm, fuzzy feeling of having been part of something grand. If you know anyone, please have them contact me. If you can share this, that would be great.

Hey folks, Kevin Forrest will be teaching a class on lighting basics. You should take it. Here is the info about the class:

"Hey guys... I'm going to be teaching a basic lighting class in my studio in October. If you have ever been curious about lighting or you want a refresher on the basics then you should email me!
Lighting Basics for Film and Video
Learn the basics of lighting for film and video during a two-day workshop with a local director of photography, Kevin Forrest.
You will learn how to create an effective lighting set up for an interview subject and a narrative scene using key, fill and backlights. Learn how to properly use tools like scrims, diffusion, flags, and bounce cards/reflectors. There will be a demonstration on lighting a scene and all of the safety precautions that go into making your film set safe and professional.
This will be a small workshop on Saturday October 7th from 10:00am-4:00pm and Sunday October 8th from 10:00am-4:00pm.
If interested please email me at [email protected]
Class limited to 5 people. More classes will be scheduled based on demand. This will be a very hands-on workshop.
This may be a great chance for actors to find out what happens on the technical side of things with regards to lighting in a safe environment. My goal is take some of the mystery out of lighting and help people understand what the lights are doing."

Hey there, everyone. Time for a long overdue post.

Galaxy Sailor Productions is going through a transformation. For years now, our goal has been to become a film production company. We have been doing commercials for nearly ten years and worked with amazing people all over the world. However, our passion has been in creating content from our own libraries and nurturing those that wished to create their own stories as well.

Over the next few months, and possibly next few years, I will be working in New York with the company, Public Policy Productions, for the EP/director Roger Weisberg. I will be producing his next film, as well as being in pre-production for his next project to begin filming in late 2018. As an individual, I am excited for this new opportunity and the possibilities it holds for myself, GSP and any one that I can help nurture projects for.

I am hoping to restart the show, Many Failures, as a vlog about the upcoming projects, the transition of GSP and anything that I can offer to help people. NYC is going to be a huge change, but one I am up for. This is what GSP has been working on and focusing on since the beginning.

Thank you for following along with us and being so supportive. I am looking forward to more posts of films and film networking, and I am really excited about showing you more about all the projects that are going to come.

Writer's Conference - Jump Right In! - Erick Mertz - Ghostwriting, Manuscript Editing, Professional Ghost Writer

Hey everyone. At the beginning of August, I taught an intro workshop at the Willamette Writers Conference for guerrilla filmmaking. The class consisted of folks who were predominantly writers that had never been on a set or made a movie. During the class, I went through some points that I thought were key to getting them going, and to prove this we made a film in class. Well, actually two films. I broke the class into two groups, and tasked each group to do a segment from an already released film. I then gave each person in the group roles to be cast and crew, had them rehearse, then gave them a camera and let them go. In all, two groups having never shot anything before, shot excerpts from Se7en and Raising Arizona. I then edited them in a few minutes in real time for them to watch.

The results were captured and blogged about by Erick Mertz. Thanks to Erick, WWC 17, and the entire class for coming out and getting your hands dirty.

A DP Drops a Truth Bomb About Camera Resolution

An interesting argument from a pro. I am in no position to argue this, one way or another. However, this is knowledge in the hand, so use it as you will.

Assume that more resolution equals better? DP Steve Yedlin argues that we are already at peak resolution.
