Besides writing for No Film School, I am currently studying at Columbia University.
Yup, and I believe that was Robeson's first role in film, too, which is also pretty great.
Glad you enjoyed.
Agreed. But I think something like this will probably be inevitable.
Thanks a lot, Bryan!
I think you misunderstood my use of the phrase, or perhaps I wasn't being clear, though I hoped the tone conveyed that I was being tongue-in-cheek. I am an amateur musician and have the utmost respect for all composers and musicians and think that ASCAP et al. perform a vital service by ensuring that performers and composers are remunerated fairly. I just saw this, so, um, please know no offense was intended. Also I agree with all the above comments about finding a student. And GarageBand is good but Logic has more functionality for filmmakers. Although any DAW can do the job. Good talk.
I think people rip DVD footage, or they download (using, e.g., a Firefox extension) the video from a high-quality online source (like HD Vimeo or something similar.) Don't quote me, though.
