    Okay well my brain is telling me to do the same thing as suggested which was go for the create a 2D object and then put it in a 3D perspective. I used the wheel of fortune footage just for a test, it's not going to be in the short film, but does this look good? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qGQ1j5ybGk&feature=youtu.be

    Okay thanks, I tried a 2D circle and put in a 3D perspective and made it spin, as a test and it worked quite well, and looks pretty good actually. However, for this script, we wanted the wheel of fortune wheel particularly for a scene. However, I cannot find any photos of the wheel of fortune wheel, that are taken from a dead on flat shot perspective that is...

    Oh okay thanks. But this isn't like a house where you don't see the back. Everything you see will still be seen when the wheel spins. For example, the part of the wheel that says "bankrupt". You would still see it as it spins, but the word would just be spun around. So I thought that everything is there to see, just spun around. There is no hidden parts,...

    Okay thanks, but I did have the anchor point in the middle now and that still doesn't help though. Basically I have a wheel like the wheel in wheel of fortune, and I want to spin it like the wheel in wheel of fortune for the short film. Now I watched tutorials and they all say to use 'rotation', to spin a wheel. However, even with the anchor point in the...

    Basically I want to spin a circular object like a wheel. I've watched tutorials and they say to use 'rotation'. But when I use rotation, it rotates the object along it's own axis, and does not actually spin it. The wheel remains still as it spins around an imagery circle if I try that. Does anyone know how to actually spin a circular object?

    Okay thanks. I was going by my experience, more than assumptions. I'm just really surprised you can make a feature for that low. I will try to find more people wanting to work with me for free.

    Okay thanks. Well I can't use my friends as crew members since they do not know how to run such equipment and would have to use people experienced in those areas I think, but people in those areas want to be paid it seems. Like for example, none of my friends have any experience in lighting, but the people I know who do, may want to be paid.

    I finished acting in a feature film and the director told me, he made the entire thing for only that much money in US dollars that is, and not counting distribution. But I was so blown away by that, and wondered how do you make a feature for that cheap, especially since I tend to go over budget sometimes, when things go wrong on my shoots. I was wondering,...

    In my previous short films, people would tell me that they notice the lights have changed from shot to shot, and that is because when the cameras moved, the DP would adjust the light. However, in order to avoid noticing this again, I was wondering if I should have a system, where I would tell the DP that they can only light the scene once, for every shot, and...

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. The director got back to me about it again a few moments later, and said that he didn't have time to redo make up again, if I have shaved.

    Okay thanks. Sorry, I will try to come up with better thread titles without question marks. I already told the the director about it, and he said that he can't afford extra time to do make up twice, so my assumption was right there, but yes, you're right, it was still good to tell him.

    Okay thanks. I thought the director might not go for this, cause if I shave then the make up department has to do your make up over again, which is extra time. I mentioned it to the director and he said it shouldn't be a problem, and he's got a lot on his mind obviously, so he can't really address this problem since the make up department is busy as well. ...

    I met a DP about a project and he asked whether or not, I want to shoot it in anamorphic or spherical lenses, since he has some of both options. I looked up some comparisons between the two. Some people prefer anamorphic for the bokeh and the the flares, but the DP says you also get a much wider field of view. However, is this a good thing, I wonder... ...

    I'm acting a movie that is all shot in one location, and we are shooting about 10-12 hours days. I noticed however, that when I shave in the morning before a shoot, I start out clean shaven, but by the end of the day, I am not clean shaving, and you can see 5 o'clock shadow by then. I was wondering if I should tell the director, in which case the director...

    A lot of screenwriters advice is to write out full bios for your character, so that you can understand what decisions they would make in the situations you place them in. But I never found I needed to do this. I can usually tell what decisions the characters will make and if I'm at a crossroad I will ask other opinions, but I don't find that having a full bio...
