EMERYVILLE, Calif. (PRWEB) March 11, 2008

    FilmClick has many quality features, separating it from other video-hosting websites. FilmClick seeks true films as opposed to the viral videos found on many popular websites. The video quality on FilmClick is much higher than that offered on many other video websites, including full and widescreen capabilities, giving viewers a more enjoyable experience while viewing films over the Internet. Also, there are no restrictions on the file size or the length of films users can upload. FilmClick wants all filmmakers to take part in this online community and have their works seen by a global audience. FilmClick offers a free, mail-in service for conversion to digital format for films currently on tapes, reels and other media.

In addition to hosting films, FilmClick serves as a social networking arena for everyone interested and involved in film. FilmClick believes that everyone contributing to a film, not just actors and filmmakers, should be recognized. FilmClick welcomes and encourages behind-the-scenes crewmembers to join the FilmClick community. Those not working in the film industry but who enjoy watching films are also welcomed to join and view films, all while being able to connect and interact with those who worked on the creation. Users can create FilmClick profiles, view films, upload films, add friends, post comments, review films, create groups, join groups, and much more. It is not required to register with FilmClick to view films, however registration is recommended to explore the full services offered by FilmClick.

Upcoming features to the beta version of FilmClick are the FilmClick Production Planner and the FilmClick Profile Directory. The FilmClick Production Planner is an online, centralized application intended to simplify the film production process. This feature includes a calendar tool to display production schedules, coordinate film shoots, make important announcements, and is accessible to everyone involved in the shoot as administered by the production moderator. Coming soon the FilmClick Profile Directory will allow users to browse all user profiles not set to “private”. This browsing feature will allow FilmClick users to get noticed and increase their ability to collaborate on future film productions. FilmClick strives to deliver a platform for everyone interested in film to share their works and credits to an online audience.

FilmClick also announced it will be sponsoring and hosting an online film festival, with entries being accepted through June 30, 2008.

Donate to LGBT Film Project and Win True Colors Tour Tickets











Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2008

An enterprising filmmaker is using the Internet to enlist the help of the gay and lesbian community to complete an independent short film. By donating to the film project, people can gain a film credit and possibly win 2 tickets to Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Tour.

Jennifer Medvin, the writer and producer of the film which has the working title of “Gaydar,” announced a fundraiser for her latest LGBT independent film project this week. “Films can have a great impact on the world,” Medvin, who recently produced Helping Hand with Paula Marshall, passionately stated. “It is still extremely difficult to locate funding for gay films, so it is very important for the community to support each other.”

All donations are tax-deductible through Power UP and should be made before Sunday, 15, 2008 to be eligible to win the True Colors Tour tickets. Power UP is a non-profit 501(c)(3) film organization comprised of women and men, gay and straight.

The short film, which will be shot in and around Los Angeles, is about a lesbian who continually falls for straight women. She employs the services of “The Master” to teach her how to harness her gay sixth sense, otherwise known as gaydar. It is a spoof on master/student films such as Kill Bill, Karate Kid and Star Wars.

The cast includes Erin Cardillo, Gregory Zarian and Eric Martsolf, including a popular star making a cameo appearance. The remainder of the cast will be announced soon. Karen Wilkens, a three-time Emmy nominee and DGA Award winner, will direct the short.

For additional information about the short film, visit http://www.myrinafilms.com/donate.html

Promoting Your Business With Short Film

By: kerst sasnett
Posted: Dec 23, 2010

By now, you find yourself knee-deep in the network marketing world. Muddling through the debris, hoping to take your product to the next level. Whatever your product is, whatever it might do, you need to figure a way to sell more, attract more leads, and make new contacts. You certainly would rather like to have interested buyers who discovered your product, than you being interested in forcing the product on friends and family members.

My first point of advice for you, the Marketeer? Examine your product. If you’ve bought into one of those internet marketing scams where the thing you are buying is the same thing your selling, I urge you to cancel your membership immediately. Your either not going to make money from it, or your going to make money from other people who aren’t going to make money from it.

I would also advise you to bifurcate your business strategy; and have separate ads for recruiting and for actual product sales. If you are drawing a question mark as to what your business sells, you should immediately quit, and try to get a refund. But if you are in one of the few MLM businesses that sells a quality product, bifurcate your advertisements. Have three sales advertisements in circulation for every one recruitment advertisement. Even if you would rather focus on a recruitment strategy; you should be able to point to a line of at least modestly successful sales. And if you can’t do that, then you’ve bought into a failing business.

Lastly, if your looking at this to market and sell your own product or service business of your own creation, I commend you. Your efforts will be hard, and you have a lot of hard-work ahead of you. However, statistics show that your success figures will be small, and many of you will fail. Do not be disheartened, continue, and learn from the process.

Okay, onto short film.

Imagine if the video you are about the upload to YouTube is a commercial. That’s what it is, however, it isn’t syndicated and isn’t guaranteed to gain an audience just because your talking about a product. In fact, if all you have to offer is a video of yourself opening envelopes full of cash, your only likely to generate sales from people dumber than you are.

How To Promote Business With Funny Animation Stuff?

So, the first issue. Like anything else on the web, content is King. You need to develop a video that exists past the advertisement. In fact the whole program should be able to come to life on its own. The commercial aspect can be interjected afterward. So even though it might not seem likely, you might even have dreams of a future for your project, even though it was originally conceived to promote your business.

What kind of content do you need? Relate it to your product firstly. If you have a travel website, maybe take trips to local area tourist attractions, and take quality photographs and video of the site. If you sell comic books on Amazon, maybe interview and document new comics coming out. You’ll find a lot of business owners around you are willing to work with you, simply because of the publicity.

After you drum up your idea, you need to set your budget. While it is possible to make a good short film on less than , remember that the end result, your production, will reflect your budget. The content and its attractiveness to consumers will reflect your budget as well. And if anything, if you’ve got a business entity, you can rightfully claim the expense as a tax credit.

After this is shooting. I won’t cover that here, I would recommend you seek out someone who is well-versed in producing and editing short film, hire them, and create your film.

After you’ve created your movie, now you need to market it.

I cannot stress the importance of your initial release day. This will help add some viral capability to your film. You should be talking about it and discussing it in Blogs that are associated with the film. You could even start a blog dedicated to the production of the project itself. This makes for a great showing, or should, if you market your blog right.

Also on the opening day of your production, utilize social marketing. As many people as you would think might be interested in the production. And hopefully, being friends of yours, they will take the time to tell a friend or two.

After that, you should go about traditional marketing techniques. Articles like this, hyperlinking and forming contacts with people who have sites related to your content. It shouldn’t take very long at all for you to get some notice to the project, and a percentage of those will be interested in the product your interested in marketing.

And very quickly, your film will be a useful tool in marke

By: Eddie Dantes

It is a one-of-its kind film festival in the world where the best films belonging to each genre are screened. Moreover, you will find only that kind of film buffs here that you always wanted.

Premiers

Classics

Short Films

The world has never seen such a celebrated extravaganza of films. Each year from the past 16 years, the festival has created a record of sorts. This year it is not too different and 200 movies are being screened at the famed film festival. The film festival is special because it promotes originality and promotes new directors who have it in them to make to the very best of the film world. To celebrate the art that is film-making, the LA film festival 2010, brings to you the critically acclaimed Pat Tillman documentary – The Tillman Story.

Year after year this film festival has been the testimonial to smash world-wide hits delivered by the film fraternity. For example, it was here that the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” was premiered which went on to become a super-hit world-wide.

The very famed and names of the most acclaimed directors of the world will surely make you understand the kind of response and cheers the festival is met with. This is perhaps the only film festival in the world where the height of anticipation exceeds the film-makers enthusiasm! No wonder that this place is considered as the Mecca of launching new and bold directors and filmmakers.

You can log on to the official site to have a glimpse of what the film festival has in store for you. The magnum opus would surely be the film made by the 10 independent filmmakers of Mexico – together!

Needless, to say, this year it has all the fanfare to already be a history in the making. The participation has seen a record turnout and if the marketing gurus are to be believed, the ticket sales would fly through the roof on the opening day.

If you’re looking for a welcome change from the films that bore you and overly criticized, this is the place to be.

It’s Like the Cannes Film Festival: Only Shorter













New York, NY (PRWEB) October 20, 2004

Doug LeClaire, show director says, “Asbury’s mission is to share the magic of short films with movie enthusiasts who are looking for more than what the Hollywood formula offers.

These shorts were carefully picked from more than 200 award-winning submissions by the worldÂ’s elite filmmakers that were honored at prominent United States festivals, including The Academy Awards, The Seattle International Film Festival, Cannes and Sundance Film Festivals.

Tom Mooney, president of Headquarters, the leading commercial film company in the United States, will host two hours of this wildly entertaining, dynamic, sexy and thought provoking event.

It’s Complicated

The most recent high-profile film to come out of Santa Barbara was last year’s Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin romantic comedy It’s Complicated.

The film’s director Nancy Meyers chose Santa Barbara for a definite reason that any Santa Barbara vacation rental film enthusiast will be able to relate to. In an interview with Santa Barbara Magazine, Meyers said that “Santa Barbara felt right for so many reasons – the natural beauty everywhere you look, the state of mind I feel when I’m there, the calm…It feels as close to the good life as you can get.”

It’s Complicated is a beautiful film that seems to show off our fair city to its finest advantage.

The operative word here is seems. Most of it was shot on a sound stage in Brooklyn in the middle of winter. Only three brief scenes were actually shot in Santa Barbara.

There’s a scene where Jane is jogging through her Montecito neighborhood and her architect friend Adam pulls up in his car. This was actually filmed in her little burg, as you can tell from the unique wooden street signs. If you want to walk in Jane’s Montecito shoes stop by The Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore, which may have been the inspiration for the hotel where Jane and her ex-husband had their aborted rendezvous.
When Jane lies in wait for her therapist at the fictional Santa Barbara Medical Center, she is actually lurking at the Anacapa Street back entrance of El Paseo, an outdoor Spanish-style shopping arcade.
While Santa Barbara is home to a dizzying array of Farmers Markets, the one Jane shops at was actually set designed for her outside the 1920s Spanish-Moorish style Santa Barbara County Courthouse on Anapamu Street.

Sadly, there is no such place as Jane’s luscious and comfy-looking business Village Bakery. The set was built inside Picnic House in Brooklyn. But folks staying in a Santa Barbara vacation rental will be able to find close facsimiles at Jeannine’s or Xanadu (temporarily closed until April, 2011 due to a fire) in Montecito or Renaud’s in downtown Santa Barbara.

Sideways

The wine-tasting buddy picture Sideways was a sensation when it was released in 2004. Filmed primarily in the Santa Barbara-adjacent Santa Ynez Valley, it spawned a whole new appreciation for wines (just not Merlot!) from the area, and a cottage industry grew up around people who wanted to retrace the footsteps of the film’s questionable protagonists.

Santa Barbara vacation rental guest who are fans of this movie often search for “the Sideways Map” which will lead you on a car tour through the movie’s highlights.. Many of the destinations even have a sign bearing the Sideways logo. If you want to travel by bike, the Sideways bike map will help you find the sites.

Different locations in Santa Barbara Proper

Santa Barbara vacation rental guests are often curious about film locations, and with good reason. There are a lot of Santa Barbara locations that crop up in movies that aren’t even set in the area. This is because of the profusion of beautiful features in the area that blend so seamlessly into other locales.

Stearns Wharf is a 19th century landmark, located at the bottom of State Street. It is the oldest operating wharf on the west coast, and the second longest pier on the Pacific coast at just a hair under 2,000 feet. In the 1940s, actor James Cagney and his brothers were part owners of Stearns Wharf. It has appeared in A Date with Judy and My Favorite Martian and the 1966 version of Batman. “Some days you just can’t get rid of a bomb!”
State Street features many familiar landmarks. It has appeared in the movies Cutter’s Way and Steal Big, Steal Little, among countless others.
The Old Town Clock at State and Haley streets was featured in The Pelican Brief.
Santa Barbara County Courthouse on Anacapa Street was also in Steal Big, Steal Little.
Mission Santa Barbara was in Sunset Boulevard and Cruel Intentions 3.

Different locations in the Greater Santa Barbara Area

Guests at our Santa Barbara vacation rental homes know that Santa Barbara is so much more than just the pretty red roofs of downtown. One of the reasons the region is so popular with filmmakers is its almost infinite variety.

Cold Spring Arch Bridge – Steal Big, Steal Little.
Lake Cachuma – The Postman Always Rings Twice
Gainey Vineyard – Seabiscuit and Of Mice & Men.
Downtown Los Olivos – Return to Mayberry.
Paradise Road – Seabiscuit and Star Trek Insurrection.
Gaviota Coast – Spartan.
Gaviota Trestle – Of Mice & Men.
Gaviota Tunnel – The Graduate.
Guadalupe Dunes – The Ten Commandments, Hidalgo, GI Jane, Pirates of the Caribbean III.
Santa Maria Airport – The Rocketeer and The Best Years of Our Lives.
La Purisima Mission – Seabiscuit.
Jalama Road – A Walk in the Clouds.
Surrounding Ranchland – Of Mice & Men.

Faking Santa Barbara

Sometimes a production may be set in Santa Barbara, but for whatever reason they can’t film there. In that case they may use a few stock footage-establishing shots, like the pier and tower seen in the TV series Psych.

In the movie I Love You, Man a wedding scene was supposed to have taken place at the fictional El Encanto Spa & Resort of Montecito. It was actually filmed at a private residence on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Sorry, a Santa Barbara vacation rental concierge won’t be able to make you a reservation at El Encanto, but they’ll be able to find you a nice alternative!

Sometimes, scenes are shot with certain geographical liberties taken. In The Graduate, the scene of Benjamin driving south to Santa Barbara shows his car heading north through the Gaviota Tunnel, in the wrong direction. Even the Santa Barbara church he banged on during the wedding was nowhere nearby. It is actually located in La Verne, east of Los Angeles.

Television Loves Santa Barbara

Moviemakers aren’t the only people infatuated with the area. Its glamour beckons on the little screen, too. Countless TV shows have been set in, had special episodes located in or just mentioned Santa Barbara. There was even a nighttime drama in the ‘80s called Santa Barbara.

More recently, our fair city has been featured or mentioned in episodes of Gossip Girl, Entourage, Victorious, Beverly Hills 90210, The L Word, Baywatch, Melrose Place, Privileged, L.A. Law, Zorro and Oceans Away.

Kind of Santa Barbara, but Not Really

Then there are the productions that are located in places that sound and look suspiciously like Santa Barbara, but are never overtly established as such. The television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a classic example.

Buffy’s hometown “Sunnydale” is described as being a coastal town, two hours north of Beverly Hills – check. Sunnydale and Santa Barbara are both homes to branch campuses of the University of California. The architecture of Sunnydale looks like Santa Barbara. Both towns abut the Pacific Ocean, and suffered devastating earthquakes between the two world wars. Sunnydale was also described as being the home of the Chumash tribe who were indigenous to Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, and many of the show’s establishing shots were of Santa Barbara.

Most convincing of all is the fact that on several occasions throughout its seven-year run, characters used maps of Sunnydale that were in fact of…Santa Barbara. Now, we want to assure anyone staying in a Santa Barbara vacation rental that there is no such thing as a hellmouth lurking under our utopian city. But you might want to bring a garlic necklace if you plan to wander around a lot after sunset.

Santa Barbara’s 100-Year History in the Movies

2010 marks the 100-year anniversary of a lively and thriving film presence in Santa Barbara. Starting in 1910 the Essanay Film Company made regular visits to Santa Barbara from Chicago in search of better weather and appropriate locations to shoot their wildly popular western genre short films. They were followed in July, 1912 by a permanent western branch of Flying “A” Studios, which was also looking for better weather and relief from the stranglehold of the Edison Trust in the east. They chose Santa Barbara because they could find both urban and rural locations so close at hand.

Flying “A” took a big hit due to the combined effects of World War I, the flu pandemic and the beginning of the Great Depression. But Santa Barbara was already well established as a choice filming location. In 1923, Cecil B. DeMille shot The Ten Commandments on the sandscapes of Guadalupe (also used in Pirates of the Caribbean III), once again launching Santa Barbara back into the movie vanguard.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Coming up Next from Santa Barbara

The entertainment industry is alive and well in Santa Barbara. Last June, the cast and crew of a new film called No Strings Attached set up shop at All Saints-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church and The Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore. Billed as a romantic comedy, the film stars Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher and is scheduled for release on January 21, 2011.

There are a lot of famous filming locations to visit. If you want to go out exploring on your own, SantaBarbara.com offers three different itineraries that will lead you through the area, scoping out locations from some favorite high-profile films. And when you’re done for the day, you’ll have a Santa Barbara vacation rental to return home to, living a life the movie stars envy.

Directed by John Kennedy & Ruairí O’Brien. Produced by Divamedia in association with the Irish Film Board.

A few nice hollywood film images I found:

NCIS: Los Angeles
hollywood film

While passing through San Pedro on a location hunt for another movie, I came across this filming of an episode of NCIS Los Angeles. To be honest with you, I had never watched more than two previous episodes of this show. I love all the CSIs NCIS, Criminal Mind type shows but I just couldn’t watch this show with any seriousness. It is the little old lady boss that I just can’t get into. Anyhow, I did my best to get some shots of this set. This was shot on Jan 14th so I imagine that it will air sometime in February or early March.

I didn’t realize that this was LL Cool J’s car until I got home and showed my wife. I am still kicking myself for not getting better photos of this machine.
