    I made a short called Cheerbleeders. It was given a 4 star review in April's Gorezone Magazine.

    Here's the trailer:

    And here's the full movie. It will only be up for a limited time:

    Here's the link to the full movie if the embed doesn't work.

    The boyfriend's short animation, 'Fourteen'. It won't embed on here, I guess cause it's not youtube? (Yes, I used the video/mp3 button)

    So it's not MINE-mine, but I did help him cut out some of the figures so I'll claim a bit of credit. Plus I want everyone to see it.

    I don't really have any shorts up on youtube, but I do have a couple of "commercials" I made when I decided to try out stop-motion animation for the first time since I was eight...

    I like the end pop gimmick a lot!

    You tic tac commercial gave me a seizure. After it passed, I killed a man and stole his mints. Then I wept and wept and wept (but I had FANTASTIC breath!)

    i could post my london sci fi 48 film challenge entries which are, to be fair, absolutely ridiculous.

    does anyone really want to see 5 minute film made in 48 hours?

    I made this in high school for a "science communication" class. I'm mostly behind the camera. I drew the dodgy little godzilla "animation" too! :D

    ...what, it was this or my Evil League of Evil application :P

    EDIT: Okay, embedding fail, have a link

    I like!

    The only thing i'd say that has nothing to do with the story and stuff is
    that bizzarely most modern Black and white films are slightly "tinted"
    and are not in fact black and white at all.
    lotsa of desaturated "bluey"
    films out there. Especially black and white archive footage done up for TV.

    Also in black and white you can get the flat grey...
    in other words because it's black and white you got to
    somehow separate the characters from the foreground and background
    more strongly.Which is why old black and white films have
    ludicrously over lighted scenes to get separation and
    sculpt the people in the scene.

    Sometimes you can getaway with using your curves
    in your image processing/ editing program of choice

    There are people who've written a tonne of books on lighting,
    i'm not one of them. Just don't fall for the traps.

    Looking forward to more!

    @PaulBurke beautiful animation, sorry about the edits, I got an animation grant from the Ontario Arts Council here in Canada but they don't stick there noses into the creatve process, they just want to see something completed and magnificant.

    @Oldhat really wild, hope you explore some more of that

    I've posted this in the Role Call thread too but in case you (whoever you are) haven't seen it yet...

    These are some old test animations I re-edited and scored this summer. They are going to be projected outdoors during this years Nuit Blanche festivals in toronto. I'm currently in the middle of a much more extensive project that I hope to share early next year.

    Nice stuff people!

    Can't believe we only got what, 12 filmmakers on whitechapel ??!!

    I count animation and experimental stuff with video as
    film making. So please guys don't be shy in coming forward.

    @ sillypunk - yes, I want to see 5 minute films made in 48 hours: that's endurance and I want it; it's mad and I want madness...please. :)

    So, I missed this post and have just stumbled on it - I'm a filmmaker!

    At least...I will be. :)

    I'm currently making video installations but have written the screenplay-libretto and am acquiring funding for a short film-opera [yup, you read that right] that we hope to begin filming before the year is out. 12 minutes, 6 actors, lots of papercraft.

    After that, I'll be stepping up to a feature film. I like challenges.

    I'll give you more details when I have them but until then I thought I'd say YES(!) and check out your works - I've really enjoyed what I've seen, all so keep 'em comin'.

    I'm just discovering this threat ... Since a few months ago, filmmaking was mostly something I was forced to do at school, work or even for a wedding !?!? You couldn't imagine the piece of shit I worked on just because I "like movies so much, please help us".

    And last year I made a piece for a website in echo of a published photography and somehow I liked it (the one called "HANDS"). So now I'm starting from scraps again with a few exercice in low-definition. In a few months this stuff may be starting to get interesting ...



    Sorry, I wasn't able to embed the videos directly ... how did the others do it ?
