    Well basically the character who you think is good but then reveals herself to be the villain, has a voice over flashback and the voice overs that the audience would hear is a brief conversation between her and another character that was also introduced before. This would explain her motives and what is in it for her, for the audience to understand. It's not...

    Oh okay. Well in The Usual Suspects, all the lines you hear in the voice over flashback were said before in the interrogation. But if I have voice over lines, that were not said before, in order to keep the surprise a surprise, would that be distracting to an audience, if they have not heard this conversation before, and it's done as a voice over flashback to...

    Oh I just meant to show no visual flashbacks at all, and after the audience finds out who the villain is, the audience is going to want an explanation as to why this character is the culprit and what was in it for them. But instead of providing a visual flashback, I thought maybe I should just do an audio flashback only and just voice over only to explain the...

    Okay thanks. Actually I read some reviews of tripod dollies and some filmmakers say they are too jittery and not as stable, compared to a gimbal or a slider, if that's true?

    Oh okay thanks. Do you think that maybe a tripod dolly that hooks onto the bottom of the tripod, along with some flex track would be better, noise wise?

    I was told I should just use a wheel chair as a dolly as it's cheaper, however, when I tried some tests, I noticed that their chair makes noises that the microphone can pick up. But since the wheelchair is a popular DIY alternative, do I just have one that happens to be louder and perhaps most wheelchairs are quiet enough that they will not be heard from the...

    A filmmaker hired me to do production sound and editing for a feature film he would like to make and I wanted to be a part of it for the experience, but also for something to do, job wise. He has made two attempts to get a whole cast and crew together, to get funding. The first time, pre-production already started with sets being build, costumes being made,...

    I like the movie. As for that situation, with Joseph Wiseman not being Asian, you don't go to a James Bond movie, expecting political correctness, and I just go in it and have fun. Since the movie came out in 62, without wanting to be a serious social statement of any kind, I can't complain too much to fault the movie over.

    Okay thanks. I'll just put some blood on them with hole in their shirt then, and see what I can get, or something like that. Or I can try the film riot way and time the reaction as best I can, and edit it the best later, if that's better.

    Well that works for minor characters, but when a major character is shot, I want the audience to feel it, so I don't want to cut where he is already falling, I want the audience to actually feel the hit more with major characters. In most movies, they make a bigger deal and show more when it's major characters. Like in a movie like Bonnie and Clyde for...

    Well basically the actor has to react like the bullet is pushing them back, so the push has to come at the same time the bullet enters though, doesn't it?

    I was going to do this method, the second one in the film riot video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANXcNihpiwY However, the problem I have is that you have to pump the pump a few times in order for the blood pack to burst. Where as I cannot get it to sync with the actor's reactions to being shot. I need to be able to sync it exactly, like on the...

    Oh okay, well I thought that the blimp was only used if you have to, as I have never seen it used indoors, and indoors they always use a smaller cover in comparison. So I thought it was only use it if you have to, otherwise there might be slight muffling, but this probably only with the deadcat on as well. If blimps should be used all the time, then why do I...

    Basically in order to save on locations in the budget, I will want to use the same locations for multiple scenes if I can but not sure how far I can push it, before it starts to feel forced, like you are doing it on a budget. For example, there is a scene I have when the police are interrogating someone, in an interrogation room. The prosecutor wants to know...

    I find that the windjammer has a slight muffling sound to it, when I have done tests. Basically it's like hearing someone speak, while wearing a nitcap over your ears. You can still hear a person clearly, but you can hear more clearly, with the nitcap taken off of your ears, if that makes sense. When it comes to shooting my own projects outdoors, I won't...
