One area of producing that many times is left to last is stills. Often times by then it's too late to get some of the images that would have made promotions easier. Getting a photographer involved early on is money in your pocket in the end. Don't overlook this on your next project.
So to go in this direction I have for you an interview with a unique Photographer. Cathy Browne will make you laugh and show you how overcoming obstacles to follow your passion always pays off.
Here is a dynamic fellow we thought would be a great addition to the program. Eric Lamirande is a young dedicated artist. You can see the passion he has for the creative process in general. He is up for anything I think. Listen to what he has planned for the future.
Please join me in welcoming Jared Cheer to our Backstage community. He is a recent Film School graduate. I just finished editing his first Backstage contribution as a matter of fact. He would love to expand his cinematic experience so send him an email if you have a need he can fill.
Thanks Jared for your contributions. Check him out:
Paula Hoffmann is one of the people that make our Indie community strong. It was my pleasure to hang out with her again and chat for a while.
Have you ever wondered how animated characters get their voice? I found out Paula does voice overs. She shares with us how this works. We also talk about the last Vancouver Web Fest. All the deadlines and dates for VWF 2015 are passed on. You really shouldn't miss it next year.
I would like to introduce you all to Jared and Roland. They are joining the team here at Backstage.
Jared Cheer is a new film school graduate. He is joining us to do Camera Op. He has a nice Canon DSLR setup. He's eager to get his name out there and get tons of experience. That much we can do in spades.....:)
Roland Corkum is a dear friend of mine that has a ton of "on air" experience. He has had a lot of film industry exposure and a history working for CBC radio. Being a natural in front of a microphone, we figured he would shine as our News Reporter.
