Thread: general questions concerning film/cutting

    Default general questions concerning film/cutting

    hi everybody.

    to make this short: i am new here, new to video cutting/animation/special effects (i whish *hehe*).

    so from the perspective of the noob that i am i wanted to ask if anyone has had experience in professional film making, any production knowledge or if you could point me in a direction where to look...

    i work as a graphics designer but have had the chance to gnaw my teeth into animatics for some tv ads in the last few months - and now i seem to be severely hooked...

    yet i seem to be unable to find any usefull information what so ever about where to go to learn some of the following things:
    what are the possibilities in film - camera, special effects, cgi, name it - i wana be able to do these things.

    i have a short film in planning, but that of course is more or less a hobby thing done in my spare time and also to maybe get a foot in the door with some big distribution company

    in other words - i wana work in film. any of you guys have information of where to look for training, internships or something like that? i live in austria and there doesnt seem to be too much i can carve up concerning information about this.

    ok, it wasnt short but i hope to have illustrated my questions

    sorry for some messed up spelling or grammar mistakes that i might have made, my english has gone little rusty in the past years...

    thanx in advance for anything you might be able to toss me

    My advice is to learn by doing and listening to others.

    Get a good book on classic cinemaphotography too.

    hi mark

    thank you for your reply.

    about the learning by doing - i'm on it

    listening to others: theres no people around me - be it work or private - that work in the field of video and/or film, so ill have a hard time with this one.

    as for the books: any suggestions/prefs?

    thanx again!
