Have you tried the Canon EOS camera ? They are good stuff to make movie .

1st . EOS camera is very cheap .
eos 550d = 600 dollar
eos 60d = 1100 dollar
eos 7d = 1500 dollar
eos 5d mark II = 2100 dollar
I think you’d better choice eos 7d

2nd . you can change the lens by you different needs

3rd . the beautiful color as film . yes I am taking about film.

I have no belief that a sequel would have flopped. Especially without any attempt of making it only because the star ran away with fans love in the face of the crew who just prepared the role for him. Life is short, fuck you. Just take American Reunion for instance, it was made almost ten years after the last one with the originals and it turned out to be the best, because the cast ruled and respected the fans. They didn’t have to but they did. I don’t mind how much work you’ve done to show respect or the movie you are making. You owe no rights over the penis you put in your ass.

By: Kriss Hoffman Sat, 12 May 2012 21:15:23 +0000 It’s not a moral quesiton. Lucas, speilberg… DGA (director’s Guild of America)… everything they do is going to be union. They DON’T do it because they are not allowed to. If they did, they would lose their SAG signatory status on the production and then not be able to use the actors that they want to.

So… James, being and indie is perfectly allowed to do this…

It’s not a matter of morals… it’s a matter of making the film…

Leeman: he did shake hands… but if you think that you would deserve it for being on set, then you are wrong…

By: brandrone Wed, 09 May 2012 05:46:06 +0000 I know this is an old thread, but this is the internet and I had to throw my $0.02 in.

1 – I was an extra on set Saturday and Monday and both days James took time away from what he was doing to thank he extras, and personally shake their hands. Maybe you were too eager to get off set to meet him, that’s not anyone’s problem but your own.

2 – I understand that some people make their money from being an extra, and people volunteering to do it for free “devalues” their work. The fact is, that’s life. If someone wanted to do my job for free I’d be out of work, but my job sucks, if you want to verify insurance all day for free hit me up. Get a new job if you hate being an extra so much. Just because it is Hollywood doesn’t mean you have to be an actor. I am a musician and I end up paying money out of my own pocket to record, go on tour, or manufacture merchandise, and I am signed to a label (Season of Mist) . Just because people can download music for free doesn’t mean I don’t want to play music. It just makes it harder to make money.

If you hate being an extra or thought sitting on your ass all day was too much work, remember one thing, this was a “volunteer” basis. Maybe look that up and get a new job or “agent”.

By: leeman7957 Tue, 08 May 2012 00:45:38 +0000 I dont know …. A hand shake I dont think would kill james especially for free labor.

By: Sigmoid Mon, 07 May 2012 10:36:39 +0000 This is an interesting moral question. Sure, if James has enough mass appeal to get free background in his movie, he’d be crazy not to do it.

Then again, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg or even Uwe Boll could do the same. Do they? Well, no they don’t.

Sure there is the small budget, the lingering garage-ish fandom nature of the production, but ultimately, it just seems somewhat wrong.

“Jacob you just said it yourself: It’s a JOB. It gets boring? Guess what, so does every job on Earth.”
Yes, but usually you get MONEY for doing them.
Apparently Jacob is a professional background actor, which means he gets PAID for it. If someone went around looking for people to do MY job for free, or “for fun and just the kicks of it, but we will not be held liable for the lack of kicks OR fun, all rights reserved”, I’d be pissed as well.
Because it would devalue my job in people’s eyes as something that is essentially worthless, or at least so abundant that paying for it seems almost absurd.
