Thumbs up New CG Film-Making Forums

Hi all,

We're proud to announce that we have new forums for CG Film-Making. As CGTalk has grown immensely in the last 2 years, we've noted an increase in the number of forums and support for the creation of 3D and 2D stills, but have not specifically catered much for members interested in CG film-making or animation. Our hope is that these new forums will cater for CG film-makers and animators, fostering growth in these areas.

Moderating the new CG Film-Making forums are Sam Chen, the Director behind 3D Award and SIGGRAPH Electronic Theatre-winning short film 'Eternal Gaze', and Jason Schleifer, Senior Animator for The Lord of the Rings who is currently working at DreamWorks.

Specifically, two forums have been started:
- Screenwriting and Concept Creation
- Cinematography and Directing (and Editing)

The moderators agonised over which forums should be added, as the film-making area is huge. We decided to go with the above to get things rolling, and will monitor the situation as time goes on.

Enjoy the new forums!

Leonard

Cool

Me too, I wish this new forum the best.


P.S.

The question is, aren't these forums: WIP/Critique: Animation and Collaborative team projects supposed cater to (short) CG Film-Making? Or better yet, move these two instead under this new cg-film forum?

Would name CG Short Film-Making be more specific instead of the just CG Film Making?

I couldn't wait for this forum to open

If any of you are looking for a nice little screenplay program...check out RoughDraft . It works pretty damn good and it lets you convert your script directly to html. Well worth a little donation.

Hope to see this forum flourish.

Excellent! Me and a team are working out file conversion problems, then we plan to get started on a short film. This will be a great resource.

Oh, so Jason switched over? I knew Dreamworks was doing some hardcore recruiting...

Exactly my thought.

How about a WIP short film forum?

Right now, after the reorganization of the forums, the thread about the short film I'm on, "Paul and His Bananas" (shameless plug) is listed under "WIP/Critique: 3D Stills", which is not really accurate, as a 3D still is not my ultimate goal and I'm posting a lot of quicktimes in there.

Thoughts?

Awesome dude,
I am currently working on a short-film, and the people in this forum can probably give me some suggestions regarding to the story.
We could write the ultimate script

PS: I would prefer a WIP forum for the film section too. that gives us the ability to get some critiques on our films. I think the WIP forum that already exists isn't really fitting for short-films
