Six months later...

I'm sorry to say I've been neglecting my blog over the last six months. There are reasons to this, mainly because there was four months of summer thrown in the middle and I didn't do all that much; then I started third year of uni, when the workload suddenly spiked. This is basically an update of what I've been up to since April...

Next Xbox

So the next Xbox was officially announced recently. Since I'm a massive gamer, this is big news for me. The reveal is set for the 21st May, and is going to be streamed on Xbox LIVE. Obviously, I'll be watching. I just thought I'd write a bit about what I'd love to see in the next Xbox (not necessarily the games), and my opinions on some of the...

Finished

So everything for Digital Distribution is finished! You can check out all of the videos via the link on my homepage. Only the last three are part of the assessment; the first two are camera tests we did before I decided on what I was going to do for the module, and the third is one that I filmed as a part of the series, but it wasn't really...

Final Editing

A lot of editing has been going on. All of the videos for my Digital Distribution projects are either in the last stages of being editing, or are finished. I've got a couple up on the site, so head along to the Matt Can't page under Videos to take a look! 

There's a trailer that was made fairly simply using an iMovie trailer template, and is a...

Editing

I've had a busy few weeks. Our main drama film has been taking a lot of my attention lately: recces, casting, general logistics. We've got a boat, which was the major problem in my eyes; now we've got to get a hold of some actors. Despite having a casting call, we had five (six if you count a dubious Skype audition) for one role, with...

Other Challenges

If you read my last blog post, you will have noticed that I forced (ahem, asked) one of the guys on my course to do the cinnamon challenge. This was a part of a module about digital distribution, and was one of four videos I'm making for it.

Over the weekend, I filmed that and three others. They were waxing, the saltine...

Cinnamon Challenge

First off, no, I didn't do the cinnamon challenge. If you've taken a look at my videos, you may have seen a couple titled "Matt Can't" do something. The eponymous Matt did it, in a new video titled "Matt Can't Do The Cinnamon Challenge". Incredibly original title, I know...

Film Noir

Just a quick post for now. We made a noir film over the weekend which we've been keeping quiet until we had a chance to show it. We're all fairly proud of it and quite a lot of work has gone it it. Especially since it was only supposed to be a quick one minute sequence...

Decisions

This last week a lot of decisions have been made. For the documentary, I've managed to convince my lecturer to let me do the second idea from last week: a parody of traditional documentaries, where instead of showing off his skills in an area, the subject is terrible at it...

Ideas

I haven't posted a blog in a couple of weeks, so I've got quite a lot to talk about. Probably going to try and get into the habit of posting more often, but shorter blogs. Basically, I've been working on ideas for two films lately, one drama and one documentary...
