Movie made with iPhone 4

The new iPhone has just been out for a few days and someone's already made a short film with it. Shot and edited entirely on an iPhone 4 over 48 hours, "Apple of My Eye" is a gripping tale of ice cream and model train nostalgia. Check out the video below to see the movie and some behind the scenes footage.

I have a idea for a movie

You know how people are remaking movies that had come out a long time ago? Maybe some one has thought about this one..."One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest." Originally played by Jack Nicholson...perhaps he can do a cameo, but I was thinking of John Malchovich as the main character. What do you think?

My friends are making their first movie!

Some close friends of mine are wrapping up their first self made feature length film titled "The Aviation Cocktail" and I have to say what I've seen so far is pretty darn impressive. It's amazing what they've done with the budget they have. The writer/director is the husband of one of my co workers- we've worked together for eleven years so it's really fantastic to see all their hard work finally come to fruition. Dave is an extremely talented individual and it shows in the trailer. The trailer is here- http://www.indiegogo.com/propeller They've set up a website for the film here (no real content yet)- http://www.theaviationcocktail.com/

Any scale- model makers?

Hi, I am the art director on a very low-budget but so-far amazing movie. I want to make an inexpensive but professional looking model of an observatory. So far, I am thinking of using sculpey. Can anyone please help with some leads? I know I could put this together, but instructables, websites, or comments about materials or construction would help immensely. This website is full of resourceful people. Thanks!

Interstellar Movie Tars Robot

Hello! I would really love if someone could make me a replica of the robot from the movie Interstellar. My version of the robot can be much more simple. I have no need for a robot that can actually fix a spaceship lol. I would just like for it to be able to walk (in the movie the robot moves several ways - but one way is enough) and talk (only saying four or five phrases). The below link shows the structure pretty well. Can anyone make this happen for me? https://ideas.lego.com/projects/85614

I need a cheap, realistic, non firing gun prop for a movie...

   Me and my friends are making a movie. I want to make or buy a pistol which looks a lot like a beretta M9 for very cheap. I'd rather not make it out of cardboard, those guns take a lot of skill to make it look remotely realistic. And I don't have access to wood.    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well seeing as instructables doesn't have a movies board (that would make it look like it was a warez site right?) I thought I would ask in here specifically at you techies, and see if anyone has seen Gran Torino? If so, what did you think about the ending? I was a little hurt by that.

Head to Head Challenge: 9

Behold, my second attempt at an instructables contest! This is the second installment of the Head to Head challenges, my first one kind of petered out after one winner. :PThe rules are simple: volunteer members will be asked to create an Instructable based on the movie or the short film 9. Whoever creates the better Instructable (higher quality, cooler, featured, most voted for, etc) will win the patch seen below. This time around, there is no deadline (but try to keep it within a month), and you can compete with up to four different people at the same time. Just remember, only one of you will win. I will allow up to four separate competitions, same as the last challenge.Have fun, hope this isn't too confusing!http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472033/ _x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ )_x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ )_x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ ) _x_VS._x_ (VS. _x_VS._x_ )

ADAM: 2009 movie about the realionship between a boy with Asperger's and the girl that moves in next door (upstairs) UPDATED....

Adam chronicles the relationship between a normal woman and a man with Asperger's Syndrome...Those with Asperger's, ...look at the world in ways that are fundamentally different...The easiest way to tell this story would be to resort to stereotypes and short-cuts and, to his credit, Mayer largely avoids these. A review Another review Update: The way I learned about this was through an interview on PBS radio in my area. UPDATE #2:  I have seen the movie, and I find a lot of it very accurate....but if you are looking for a nice neat "happily ever after" ending, it might not be for you.....it is realistic, and life doesn't always deal us "happily ever after". Just saying....

Interstellar (movie) ScienceFiction

Spoiler alert. The butler did it!!  Just kidding.                 Category: Weird Planets! Water Planet-  How'd they know that the sea was shallow enough to land in? The ship's engines apparently can't run if wet. So landing here was pretty risky. Would you land a plane in a foot of water not knowing if it was 1000' of water? You can't take off if the engines are wet!                         When a big wave hits, (on earth) one of the signs is that the water in a bay will recede. Why didnt this happen when the big waves hit in the film?   Ice Planet-  80% of earth's gravity (IIRC)  Yet a "frozen cloud" can hold up it's own weight. Fun world, very sculptural. Is there any way these shapes can hold themselves up?  Might be more believable if planet had 10% of earth gravity.  Those jump jets also more plausible in low G.                 Category: Black Hole Appearance-  At first, this seemed pretty artsy- bizzare. But i'd read that lots of research + computer modelling went into it. So here's my assumtion explaining the visual:  The black hole has a simple ring of hot debris orbiting it like the rings of saturn. This stuff isn't close enough to have it's light sucked in. Looking above, or below the "hole", Light from the backside of the ring is bent around to our "eyes" by gravity. This causes the illusion of a second ring perpendicular to the first one. If we coud "look"  with some means unaffected by gravity, we would "see" a single ring.                 Category: Demise of Earth IIRC, the crop  blight is "using up" the N2 in the atmosphere??  um...  Overall, a really good flick, addressing big human questions. Of course the human story is the most important, tough decisions face these characters....  but chat on sci should be fun, too.

Circus Tent

Greetings again, Sorry I didn't photograph all I went through to create this miniature circus tent that is my stage for a movie I'm making. It was a difficult project as i work without any idea of how it would work. I just knew that I wanted it to look like what one would think a circus tent would look like. I can give descriptions of how I made it: The tent material is kite fabric that I bought online from kitebuilders.com. I also bought two rolls of double face tape from them. There is the cheap one that worked great for piecing the tent pieces together and one that costs about $16 that I used to add in the roping that ties fabric to the tent poles. For the tent main support poles I bought 2 3' pieces of 1/2" aluminum from Home Despot. Here's how it went together: I made two semi-circle pieces out of triangle pieces of red and yellow fabric. The main tent poles are embedded in a 1" piece of flake board. In order to hold up the tent while I pieced other parts to it I made two circles of 1/4" board with 1/2" holes drilled so they would slip over the aluminum pole and held them up with clamps until I got them to the proper height. The tent towers cam next. These were made with smaller triangle pieces to make a full circle. As the top of the tower would be holding up the entire structure so I used a 2" metal ring at the top. To attach I cut slices at the top and folded them over ring and used the double face tape to secure. So now I've got the two ends of the tent and the two towers but nothing is holding them together. And there is still the center section that has to be made. My next step was to add tent poles at the corners and other strategic positions. I jury rigged all connections with paper clamps, tape and what ever else I could thing of to hold the thing together long enough to force fit. From here I did a rough markup of where I thought the tie down roping should be. I then used some cotton rope (3/16" approx). Once again, simple slices in fabric turned under and held together with dbl face tape worked. I must say I worked through three different ways of doing this until I got something that worked. I left a lot of extra rope between the arcs so I could attach to the tent poles. These poles are just pieces of 5/8" dowels. The towers and the main tent pieces were also connected with dbl face tape. I made two circle frames out of 1/16" steel cable (@ 10 cents a foot) and used a swedge connector on each. This gave me a way to alternate tower and main connections that pull against the cable and not the fabric. Worked great. The last part was to fabricate pieces to add between the towers to complete the tent. You will notice that one side is completely open. That's were I will film from. The last thing I added was a large lazy-susan bearing so the entire stage can revolve as needed. I have also created a stage that fits inside the tent. And, lighting and back drops. I'll show those at a later date. There will be a YouTube video in a few days. I'm editing it right now.

If a movie is ever made about you, which actor would you like to play you?

To start, if a movie is ever made about my life, I would like to have George Clooney as my first choice, Gerard Butler as second choice and Pierce Brosnan third. I share a striking resemblance to these actors (tongue in cheek). My theme song would be Forever Man by Eric Clapton.

Movie Error

I was watching the first part of Generation Kill, its about a group of marines during OIF 1, and I was getting all into it and I noticed an error, a Major error. Well just look at the picture. Normally for a vehicle to go, the engine has to be RUNNING. Tactical vehicles have switches to start them. You have off, run, and start. He has the engine off, but yet the vehicle is making noise and its going down the road. Now i know the vehicle is being pulled by a trailer, and the engine is "off" because if it was "on" it would be a crap load louder and everyone would have to scream at each other just to talk, but come on guys at least rig the knob so that it points up right when driving. What movie errors have you noticed that made you upset?

Movie Question / discussion: the new Sherlock Holmes (2009) (possible spoiler alert if you intend on seeing it)

Mostly I am wondering what  you all thought of the movie (those that have had the pleasure of seeing it, of course). Some things I found interesting/disturbing/unsettling/perplexing: The movie is either set in a time period where Holmes is much younger then is portrayed in the original series, or he has been "remade" into a younger character. I noticed that NO mention, nor even hint of Holmes'  "opium" use  (his greatest vice) was in the movie.  However,  there is a reference to cocaine (even if not "by name" early in the movie - i.e. "liquid that Holmes was "drinking", Watson refers to its use in eye surgery). As true to the books,  Holmes refers to his form of reasoning (incorrectly) as "deductive", and does so when speaking to Dr. Watson also.  The correct "label" for this type of reasoning is "inductive". My life partner and wife found it difficult to follow a story line that kept recursing on itself:  In several  scenes, Holmes describes how he was going to accomplish something (taking down an opponent, for instance) and they would show what he was describing;  then they would show it actually happening.   A few scenes recursed from different perspectives (one example:  when Irene leaves Holmes' residence for the first time after making her first "proposal" to Holmes, is shown getting into a carriage and a beggar stumbling into the scene;  moments later, the scene is shown again, this time from HOLMES' perspective, what happened (when He disguises himself as a beggar) . I do not remember reading in the books and short stories much about Watson's wife, although, brief mentions here and there are made (in the books and short stories) they are almost all contradictory in nature. I thought his "inability to always remain focused" and able to sort out the "information overload" quite intriguing .

syfy alien style gel/liquid controller

I wonder how one could build a controller like the aliens use in district 9 and other movies/games. You know the kind im talking about? The one where you put your hands inside of a gel like substance and manipulate the controls. Now maybe were a long way from the actual thing but i would like to make or see made something similar. like maybe a clearish, strong bag that could hold some kind of thick gel. then using displacement of your hands some how be able to "press" buttons. like move index finger up, displacement of gel causes a button/sensor above to be triggered. all while being inside of a clear glowing stylish case... is this possible with todays tech? i think so, but has anyone an idea exactly how to do it? community project maybe??

I thought it would be cool, though if there was a place where people could share cool effects they made in blender, so this is the purpose of the forum.

Explosives

I am going to be filming an action film soon and I need to some explosives to use in some shots. Anybody know how to make some? I can get pottasum and all that stuff I just don't know how to make it. I also need an electric fuse so it can be set off manually not by having to wait. So if any one knows how to make that too.  I was going to use black powder but wondered if there is a better way. It will be covered with dirt to make a dirt explosion not all fiery.
