Filmmaking Stuff - How To Make, Market and Sell Your Movie
Turn the telescope towards your target area and center on the target star you selected earlier. Look through the camera and make sure that there are no obstructions such as trees or buildings blocking your view or immediately below. Once you are ready, select the B setting on the camera and attach the cable release. As you do so, note the exact time. This is important because if any streaks appear in your film, you will want to compare that track against a satellite-tracking program to make sure you have not imaged the ISS or an iridium flare. When you are ready, open and lock the shutter. Take an image that is anywhere from five to fifteen minutes in length. The maximum length of your exposure will be determined by how accurately you polar aligned the scope and how much light pollution is present. You will have to experiment. The longer the exposure, the easier it will get to find an asteroid. There are two reasons for this. First the longer you expose the film, the fainter the...
Causal listening Causal listening, which Bohme (2000) refers to as object orientated and Metz (1985) calls the sound of what , is by far the most important form of listening in film. Everything that can be seen on the screen, that can make a sound, potentially has to be heard without imposing upon the dialogue. So the first thing any sound design team does is to list the sounds that are either essential or might enhance the film. This proves often to be of great advantage to filmmakers, as it can transform the artificial into the real polystyrene rocks can have weight when rumbling towards the lead character, plywood doors become solid oak, and painted backdrops can appear animated. These sounds are commonly synchronised with the action, and provide all of the physical cues about a sound generating object, such as its mass, velocity, composition, and vibration. The film director, Robert Bresson, states that he will replace an image with a sound whenever possible as a sound always...
Greater expressivity may be achieved under these circumstances. The expressivity of a visual technology often arises from ways in which its spatial representations do not match vision. This expressivity has two aspects the ability to convey meaningful information, and the ability to promote a particular relationship between the viewer and the representation, such as by altering their emotions. Informational expressivity is a measure of how much the user comes to know about the depicted scene, while affective expressivity reflects changes to the relation between the user and the depiction. These two kinds of expressivity are often closely intermingled. Omission may be as expressive as inclusion. For example, filmmaking relies on omission, the framing of images and selecting of shots, for its expressive power. In informational terms, the suppression of detail in a picture, or the adoption of a nonperspectival depiction, may make an image more informative as well as making it more...
Early history of film, as when perspective was introduced into painting, many techniques were tried on a pragmatic basis, some to survive and others to atrophy. Salt emphasises that early filmmakers did not, as it were, know what they were doing experimentation led to many inventions, only some of which survived in the mainstream (Salt, 1992, p. 40). Salt himself points out the parallels with Gombrich's notion of how progress is made in picture-making, where ad hoc improvisation by each picture-maker lays a foundation for future practice (Gombrich, 1977, p. 304). It tends to be forgotten that early filmmakers explored configurational approaches to filmmaking as keenly as they experimented with the pictorial. This is perhaps surprising, given that pointing a camera at a scene effortlessly produced an image in pictorial mode, while to construct configurational images required difficult extra work. However, such images were certainly made. Williamson'sAreyou there , of 1901, was probably...
If you are using film, consider two things. First use the fastest film you possibly can get. Second, store your film in the freezer until you are ready to use it. Freezing the film will push its photographic speed to double what it could do ordinarily. This is important in long-exposure astrophotography because you don't want the exposure to be any longer than it absolutely has to be. There are two reasons for this. First is that every second the shutter is open there is the opportunity for you to make a mistake. Secondly is that reciprocity failure will begin to set in if you leave the shutter open for the kinds of time that it might take to bring out the faint moons of Uranus and Neptune.
As discussed above, PFSS models are generally unsuitable to describe the time evolution of the global magnetic field. They have nonetheless been used in the fashion of cartoons, many images make a movie, far beyond the realm of physical applicability of PFSS models. This approach, of course, neglects crucial physics, but its physical meaning can be shown to be equivalent to a situation in which the timescale for magnetic dissipation, or reconnection effects, rRec, outpaces the typical timescale of the evolution of this structure, rEvo, or,
Named in memory of Frederico Fellini (1920-1993), one of the world's greatest film directors. He was called 'the maestro of the Italian cinema' and was an inspiration to a whole generation of film makers. Fellini's first film was Lo Sceicco Bianco, released in 1951. His first success came with I vitelloni, and in 1954 he won an Oscar for La strada. Further Oscars followed in 1957 for Le notti di Cabiria, in 1964 for Otto e mezzo and in 1974 for Amarcord. In April 1993 Fellini was honored with an Oscar for his lifetime achievements in film. (M 23137) Name proposed by M.-R. Visscher.
In 1990, noted American filmmaker Errol Morris became interested in doing a high-budget television special about Hawking's life called A Brief History of Time. It debuted in 1991. The 80-minute film included interviews with Hawking as well as many of his immediate family members, neighbors, classmates, professors, and scientific colleagues. Although the documentary had the same name as Hawking's book, the film included more commentary about Hawking than it did about the physics of his work. In summer 1991, Hawking and his
Named in memory of Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999), filmmaking genius, whose 1968 rendition of Arthus Clarke's see planet (4923) novel, 2001 A Space Odyssey, remains the definitive science-fiction movie. At least half of his 12 other feature films, from The Killing (1956) and Paths of Glory (1957), through Peter Sellers' performance in the brilliant Dr. Strangelove (1964), and on to A Clockwork Orange (1971), The Shining (1980) and Full Metal Jacket (1987), explored twentieth-century culture in a manner that was unprecedented in its artistry and its longevity.

Excavation began in the summer of 1990 and found a remote well, together with towers, rooms and artefacts from at least 2000 BC. A Los Angeles filmmaker named Nicholas Clapp brought the possibility of using SIR-B to find Ubar to NASA's attention in 1983 and the radar and archaeological exploration confirmed the city - which, according to myth, was 'swallowed' by the desert - had indeed collapsed into an underground cavity. Corrupted, it is said, by the wealth it acquired from the frankincense trade, Ubar's destruction sometime between the first and fourth centuries AD thus represented God's punishment of its 'wicked' inhabitants.
So after millions of years as terrestrial beings Homo sapiens in ever increasing numbers is beginning to migrate offworld. Human enterprise in space, so far, is manifested in both unmanned and manned activities. It is the creative human mind that is responsible for launching automated spacecraft to far-off planets, as much as for the building and staffing of a space shuttle or station. Extraterrestrial human activity increasingly involves artists, architects, film makers and entrepreneurs, as well as planetary scientists, engineers, technicians, and aerospace planners. The
You can also study a given an area over a few days and watch for the star that moves. In either case, you need a good star chart to pick out the extra star in a given area. The third option is to use long-exposure photography. Over the course of time, an asteroid on the move will leave a short streak on your film as we illustrated in Observing Project 7C. If the asteroid is slow moving, it may not leave such a streak but if you take images over successive nights you can chronicle the movement of any faint background object.
You can dramatically reveal this motion using a typical 35mm camera and 400-speed film. Simply place the camera on a stable surface or mount it on a tripod, focus on Polaris in the viewfinder, and open the shutter for a half-hour or so. When you develop your film, you'll see colorful concentric star trails centered on Polaris.
