Marvel Scene Recreations update.
The costumes have arrived for the next set of Marvel Scene Recreations!!
And with this, comes an update: Many of you that I have had discussions with on this forum, probably won't find this as much of a surprise: I'm taking a break from Filmmaking. Planned to be for one year but it could end up being longer.
For the last 3 1/2 years, I have been trying to hit a new level in Filmmaking and uncover some secrets to the Cinematic Storytelling Craft that I have been missing.
As of today, with the end of a e-mail discussion with an author of Screenwriting books, my final question has been answered.
As you can see with the picture above, we have had amazing improvement since joining the forums.
Special thanks specifically to @DafterThings @Rutxer and @Polacono for all the tips on improving story, lighting, and the help on the program It'self. (Just finished Robert Mckee's Story about a week ago and it was certainly an eye-opener.)
Also, the Gotg trailer recreation is my last project with Hitfilm. When I come back I plan to switch to Adobe After effects and get into more advanced vfx techniques to help build up my skills.
Hitfilm was a great starting program and I appreciate and thank all the software developers who put it together and none of my projects would have been possible without it.
Lastly, this post is also, a goodbye to the FX Home community. You might see me every once in a while but I don't plan to be constantly on the forums giving feedback and advice, and whence I switch to the Adobe Suite I'll be gone forever.
Thank you FX Home forums community. I appreciate every one of you, and the times spent discussing things with you will always be remembered.
And that's that. Time to spend some time just living and making things up to people. (Don't think my family has liked having an angry disconnected frustrated Filmmaker around the house for 31/2 years straight.)
(Thanks for reading and being a part of this journey in my life.)
Sincerely: Dustin Johnson, aka Xhan47.
