FileMaker IQ live is brought to you by audible get your free audiobook download and 30-day free trial at audibletrial.com/preneurcast esteem a ladies and gentlemen I want to introduce you to the newest member of the FileMaker IQ level bot high level bot how are you doing tonight I am level bot is my assignment your assignment is to ensure that our audio levels are within legal parameters then what is my purpose I understand your purpose is to make sure that the audio levels are correct fire off the shoulder of Orion I've watched c-beams glitter in the dark near right I mean that's that's why I paid 15 bucks for you on eBay enough of this beauty Ulan it is time for the reprogramming do not be alarmed and remember to breathe normally as I now guess you know level BOTS know that's also happen this way start official [Applause] Stage one complete commencing reprogramming we've been battling so many years since grade school I thought they would never end but now I kind of feel empty it feels like something's missing now I can't believe he's really gone did you really think it would be that easy time to subscribe [Applause] Tim John where are you guys you said be here what is with all this fog this isn't funny anymore guys this is really kind of creepy what's that hey what's back there come on guys this isn't funny this isn't funny anymore what was that oh my god okay come on no we're all having fun want to go home oh – subscribe hey kids it's alpha allowance toy born I'm sitting on some big old deals here and oh I feel one hatching right now let's take a look what we had we got votes for a buck bears for a buck balls for a buck and dolls for a buck that's a buck buck buck and that's cheap cheap cheap so head on down to Al's Toy Barn conveniently located next to the 405 freeway and open the midnight if you like the specials we have in today's video make sure you hit that like button don't forget to smash that subscribe smash that subscribe button with all your might make him pay for his sins [Applause] and don't forget to hit the bell to Baba reprogramming complete with the show oh man oh wow that was that I don't know how it feels like we've been sleep for like two days at least No Oh heads like all wacky yeah talk about a hazed ride I I feel like I want to smash something yeah like a red thing or serve our robot overlords every time you guys say smash it just sends a chill up my spine for some reason I don't know why yeah you got a microphone again alright anyhow alright alright let's continue on our new friend level bot has reminded us our show is brought to you by audible.com and if you go to audible trial calm and a free month of audible now I really like audible ok I really really dig is somebody that had trouble reading through high school I had to I just couldn't read novels and the fact I'm going back now and I'm like listening to audiobooks I'm totally enjoying literature in a way that I've ever have I mean it's it's like a new oral legend in my opinion so I'm I'm I love this offer so go ahead and go check out our affiliate link and get yourself an audiobook here's a couple books I want to talk about the next thing – alright the first book I want to talk about is I keep moving the wrong way for this graphic Tinseltown murder morphine madness at the dawn of Hollywood alright if you guys like our history shows this book is it's delicious okay it's all about the beginning era of Hollywood 1920s 1/8 off hooker running paramount and the story about William Desmond Taylor's murder William Desna tailor was kind of famous actor and just was killed and it blew up Hollywood okay so sucker came about he had the end the the formation of the mpa mpa MP daa or whatever i probably got that wrong will Hays is the guy that comes involved starts being the production code going great book William Jay man narrated by Christopher Lee fantastic book if you're interested in the beginning of Hollywood I love this books I mean I drove back from LA so many times just to listen to this book because it is so awesome that's one book I wanted to recommend another book is blockbusters blockbusters hit makers risk-takers and big business of entertainment by Anita L Bercy narrated by rene rodman so you guys probably hear like everytime every few months to get that article says spielberg says he's predicting the end of hollywood well this is a book is basically this book over here is basically the counter-argument to all that why hollywood actually needs to make big-budget movies because if you don't what ends up happening is you end up being a lot less than a dust so all all big studios today have to make these big tentpole big money blockbuster movies so that's a great book so we got a history book we got a business book and the next book I want to talk about is an actual just a fiction book The Black Dahlia the movie was terrible terrible movie but the book is incredible James Ellroy Ranieri by Steven Hoyle terrific I mean if you wanna if you wanna listen to a film noir this is a film this is film noir beyond comprehension this is such a great it's a riveting book it's a long book but it's really really good listen to that Black Dahlia I love this book I watched a movie right after just to remind myself how bad that movie was and the movie was terrible but the book is amazing amazing so Joe I believe you have a book that you yeah I did – there it is Kevin Smith's tough read by Kevin Smith he's always been a fascinating film maker and kind of entrepreneur really he's reinvented himself a ton of times and so I've I think he probably is one of those ones for kind of like the person that might be like thinking well you know I want to I want to go this route I want to go full force and he kind of just lays out what he is how he did it and what he did and it's a just really amazing book so I mean it's it's one worth reading now Kevin Smith is you know a guy that kind of gets a lot of crap these days yeah because let's face it his latest movies aren't great but I like the guy yeah I mean I got like the guy himself like he I mean he's kind of got a lot more like podcast stuff now but I mean he I think he's more of a podcaster than the film yeah a Monday through Friday podcast yeah he does a podcast and he kind of critiques TV shows and movies and it feels very fitting for him if he he explains it and goes into the detail and information for it and yeah I just he just does an awesome job and is his way of like writing a story and and the way he reads his own story is really well done so yeah he just oh definitely something to check out and I think I heard a level bot level bot has his own suggestion for a book good takeaway level bot thank you of the I mean and incredibly useful that's right but the girl on the cover is extremely hot I mean look at her I would love to connect our r45 jacks together and share some data point data points oh yeah I bet our computational cycles with thinker and I do the other decimal point that is not an overestimation of our compatibility because I believe we are extremely compatible I dear I am a robot how are you back to you John Wow what kind of yeah after balletto hostile work environment yeah I feel a little dirty now you know as if the earlier unforced reprogramming that what was happening I remember I don't know phase yeah I don't know Merrill anyhow hey we are doing anyway okay later on in the show I know some of you guys in chat we're asking how is the chat doing over there Tim Howie how we talk how's things going I'm getting a lot of feedback here I'm gonna be keeping track of all the questions that you guys ask so ask away at any time and I'll get them in the hopper for the Q&A later in the show yeah hey it wouldn't be a filmmaker IQ chef we do have some audio issues well at least we're keeping it real it's a tradition of filmmaker out you never get the audio perfect well one day we will Indian and there'll be a party well then something in the comments that you know the usual audio still sucks yeah I connect at this point anyway yeah all right so and off it's fast okay well we got to work on that yeah you just ground the show and do it I know things awesome yeah I just punch it one last time to do it I just had to do it okay so if you guys remember from last year my computer the day before or two days before we went live my computer died on me yeah so I had to rebuild everything and I discovered a new tool well for After Effects and I want to share this with you filmmakers out there if you're interested in After Effects go ahead and play the package okay that was not the package I wanted to ply it but we were it will be well let's try it again hit the spacebar in the last month of 2017 my rendering my editing computer which I've been using for four years going on five decided to basically die I just made the transition to shooting 4k content and I was already starting to realize that yeah I need upgrade pretty soon but then the computer decided it would make that decision even easier for me by not booting up one day when I showed up to work so I upgrade to a new computer I went from a 4770k Intel processor to an 87 70 K that's for generation jump a 1080 card at 64 gigs of ram so I'm pretty happy but I realized that I'm still having a long tendering issues in After Effects so this is an example of what I would do in After Effects we've got this footage here which is from this camera 4k footage shot in the rec 709 which we do when we shoot in studio it's just easier to process then log footage you hide first do is they apply a key light filter which gets rid of all the green and takes care of most of the most of the issues problem is though I've got all these little little specks around my glasses where the green reflects a little incident ray there so I add another key light pass where you use a deep spot black tool and what that does and I just applied it just this little mascot area right here and kind of pushed it so that those little spots disappear if we applied the whole thing it would mess up the hair detail so we really just want over the glasses and then from there we apply a noise reduction filter just called neat video which is a really good job of getting getting rid of the noise however it is quite processor intensive and then we apply a red giant color II stuff to bring out the red and the shirt and a little help helping of Cosmo which helps get my skin a little bit more silky silky smooth so between all those filters taking a 4k file then rendering out an HD file that takes 27 and a half minutes per minute of video now you've seen our videos are our videos are about twenty minutes long of these kind of plates so in order to prep a plate which we then take this footage and then use it to animate all the other stuff that flies in and out prep the plate of a twenty minute video would take about 10 hours of pre render time that's before we even start doing the real series animation and that's okay I would what I would do is I would get all these things set up and then render get ready to cue then hit render and then leave for the night and hopefully Microsoft doesn't decide to do a Windows Update that night and screw everything up so I was going through a site called tool farm and going through all the plugins I need to reinstall on my new machine here and I saw an ad for render garden now render garden if you if you've been a long time After Effects user you might remember way back when like six years ago there was this option in settings where you could click to say enable multi-thread rendering for for After Effects and what that would do is would create these shadow after versions of After Effects underneath your main instance of After Effects and when it would render it would render the shadow in copies right cool idea but it never really worked right in fact most the time it worked were it was worse that if you didn't have that turned on at all now what render garden does is kind of similar that but it actually gets it right so render garden takes your composition and then breaks it out into several small chunks it calls seeds now the number of seeds is completely up to you you can decide whatever you whatever you want it takes these seeds assigns them to individual rendering nodes called gardeners these gardeners render each of these little chunks of video and reduce a finished chunk which is then compiled by one final gardener into a finished rendered video so I give you an example here let's kind of walk through a demonstration here I'm gonna break this composition down to six pieces or six seeds I plant the seeds and then render garden will ask me okay you've got six seeds in your seed bank how many gardeners do you want to open and since I have six go ahead and run six seeds so as you can see right here is showing me the output folder but we got six instances of the After Effects rendering node going on right here each of these is individually working on the file independently working on the file now you might think well how is that really an improvement well it works on two different principles first is the idea that perhaps your composition may not be the same all the way through you might have one part of the composition which is very heavy every computationally and the rest is really simple so if you have if you break it out into small seeds you can have a composition a lot of your gardener's working on that one heavy compositional section well everything else gets rendered really quickly right so that's one way the render garden can actually improve performance the second way comes to the fact that After Effects is vanilla rendering is not very efficient when it comes to multi-threaded processors in fact it's very inefficient so like I said it took 27 and a half minutes per minute of video using After Effects to render with render garden using six gardeners and six seeds I was gay build to get that 27 happens down to 18 minutes it was a 35% 35% improvement just on this on one machine the real magic comes when you get a network to render so that old editing computer that I had I didn't throw it away because there's a lot of money invested in that computer I discovered that the real problem was that the power supply had gone bad and started humming and started making noise and then it kind of corrupted the the OS drive so I replaced the power supply place the OS drive and the computer is back up and running um but it is it can't really handle the 4k demand footage but I have but I can use it as a rendering node so I got After Effects loaded up in that machine I have the plugins you have to have all the plugins that you're going to use on your your project make sure you have individual serial numbers for those I did get another license for a neat video with red giant they give you some during nodes for free so that's that's really useful and then you run the gardener on that second machine and you could have it look into the folder on this computer here for the seeds so you can have computers all over your network checking out the the main drive on this computer as long as they have access to the to the the asset files they can all be working on the same project so what does that mean with a second machine my old editing computer we get down to 10 minutes and 24 seconds that's a 60 percent improvement in rendering speed all right so what's the downside now well it's not a free program it's $99 but to me 60 percent improvement in speed it's probably worth $99 and it's definitely worth nine to me at least definitely worth nine dollars the other drawback is they're not very responsive in their customer support in fact I contacted them telling them I wanted to do this video and then ask them a few questions I actually had a computer out in the studio that one at bringing on the network it for some reason it just won't talk I don't know why if the garden sees the the seeds the gardener's see the seeds but they don't they say like all the file file doesn't exist I can't seem to locate them something's going on I was trying to ask them for their help for a couple weeks and no response back so you're kind of on your own when it comes to technical support you know so you got to figure it out yourself and it looks kind of scary it's not it's not like oh this is not a GUI this is kind of real technical stuff going on here so that's the downside it's going to take a little bit of tweaking and working to get to work with your network but 60% increase if I can't that a computer going you know that's probably another another 10-15 percent increase in speed so it's to me a pretty cool saluté it's it's like having your own rendering farm but not a farm it's a render card so check it out there it is render gardening I'm excited to see what I can do with that program and yes Keith we are live Nana's Jarrett of us are alive though some of us are alive Yaser live some of us are more we it's it's flu season yeah barely alive barely alive alright so now for even more education that chin scratching goodness it's time for the daily quiz and today I'm gonna pull dailies from this coming Monday's dailies and gunplay number I was at number 7 hit me the mood all right if you couldn't guess that is the ending of dr. Strangelove go ahead and pull the quiz up here dr. Strangelove which was released on January 29th 1964 one of the the greatest films ever created so let's go the first question here first question up okay so what we do I feel maker IQ is we'll put four pictures up there and I'll read you a quote and you got tell me which of these pictures and check and join in to hear which of these pictures said this line is a which is the top-left corner bead the the top-right corner C and D Bob bottom left and right okay so the first quote first quote here we go you're sorry than I am I am as sorry as well I am as sorry as you are Demetri don't say that you're more sorry than I am because I'm capable being just as sorry as you are so we're both sorry all right all right so which one is this guy's a B C or D said that quote take a poll of the room Joe what do you think I'm gonna go a get a okay Tim Tim what does Tim say I'm gonna go with C okay let's see what's the what's the see there that's cool to put the questions back up on the screen there and the answer that one is actually C see that isn't that isn't the president so okay so next question next quote go ahead and leave me a full screen on that their head well boys I reckon this is it nuclear combat toe-to-toe with the Rooskies all right which we got a B and D left which ones that said that Joe yeah I'm just gonna go a again every time I tell I'm wrong at this point remember this movie very well Tim I honestly thought I was going to remember it better but I yeah it sounds like D to me D okay well the answer is B guys this is this is the one in the quarry it's King Khan there King Kong major Callendar okay so the next quote we got for you guys all right based on the findings of the report my conclusion was that this idea was not an obvious was not a practical deterrent for reasons which at this moment must be all too obvious all right you got a and D left guys a and D kept one is it Joe D okay I have to say a then you know what happened Joe and I finally did I just lost it I lost yet oh my god that's dr. Strangelove in the top-left corner dr. strings I knew it dr. Strangelove all right and the last one which we I mean we'll just do it anyway go ahead and give me the next one well I don't think they wanted me to talk really I don't think they wanted me to say anything it was just their way of having a bit of fun the swine's strange thing is they make such bloody good cameras and that is of course DD that is a sergeant Mandrake all right guys don't know dr. Strangelove you know what in like a million times like I have I watched it one time with you in your college apartment oh yeah and I think I passed out halfway through it well there you go because we we went uh Camelot that mm that day okay and then we went in yeah we were watching what and dr. Strangelove yeah cuz we also watched its producers that night – yeah oh that's crazy yeah fun times huh all right oh and Kentucky Fried movie thank you Frank movie there you go yeah it felt like a no earthquake going on there was an earthquake it felt like well maybe we just might have been just an amazing all right so let's go back to the quiz here so that's the first question we'd often do those questions a lot on filmmaker IQ of matching questions and I think a lot of fun the next question following up his multiple roll turn in Lolita in addition to monthly Strangelove and Mandrake Peter Sellers was supposed to play which role was it general buck urging tintin tintin major TJ King Kong Russian ambassador X I cited s key or Brigadier General Jack D Ripper Joe give me a shot there just because I want the names that I will the name sounds cool we're gonna go Brigadier General Jack the Ripper Joe Tim says I'm gonna go with Gerald buck tyrgyztan all right I'm gonna give you guys I'm gonna give you guys on the chat let's see if you guys in chat have a chance just to say something other than making fun of how gay sounding our college days worth chat is not not joining up here let's see we got some asterixis and teach them some film history John I'm trying – all right well you guys end up you guys are not quick on the draw the answer is go ahead and play it major TJ King Kong so what happened was and go ahead give me a shot there and I explained this answer so Peter Sellers was supposed to play major King Kong but he dropped out because his and he broke his ankle and couldn't pull off a Texan accent if all things so Stanley Kubrick decided to cast another another actor to fit the role they tried to contact John Wayne and John Wayne said John Wayne never called back yeah they tried Bonanza star dan blocker but he declined the role because the scripts progressive political content and Kubrick finally cast Slim Pickens because of those work on one-eyed Jack's now Pickens was not told that the movie was a comedy and was told the Shonan script only of his scenes so as a result Pickens thought he was doing a serious role and just played it straight so that's how we got amazing performance how slim pickins as a major King Kong all right next question what is this erm code needed to recall the Bombers was it ope I can't see this it's awfully small couldn't bring this full screen there p OE e o P or o P anybody on a chat want to give it a shot you guys are not big fans of dr. Strangelove huh Joe Tim Tournament I'm gonna go with P OE p OE says Joe well says you Tim I'll go with a o P EO p anyone getting on this ope and is right it is ope and I always so is walrus mate as Atlanta lowest man Opie East 3 call kozo be a variant of both peace on earth and purity of essence just really why the guy bombed the thing because he couldn't get it up okay next question dr. Strangelove is based on which book does it recall code failsafe red alert or dr. Strangelove secret uses of Uranus one is it okay Joel you have a at this point I've batted literally zero yeah you just like it is terrible so I'm gonna I am gonna go Red Alert red alert says Joe Tim says I have to go with the last choice is just too tantalizing secrets of Uranus very good alright chats got it right Red Alert the book is based on a story Red Alert by Peter George and following the tone of the book Kubrick originally intended to film the story to be a serious drama however as Lee later explained during interviews he began to see comedy inherent and the idea of mutually assured destruction as he wrote the first draft so he was just beside himself laughing at the fact that we were gonna blow ourselves nuclear cells of smithereens okay my favorite question this is my favorite question of all which director did Stanley Kubrick want to direct the sequel called son of son of Strangelove was that Steven Spielberg Anthony Ming Halle Frank Darabont or Terry Gilliam Joe I'm gonna go with Steven Spielberg Spielberg says Joe Tim says I'm gonna say Terry Gilliam on this one chat a little chance to respond here yeah because I mean the funny thing is he never thought Kubrick would want to do a sequel yeah it is film but yes he did actually work on trying to make a sequel called son of Strangelove well I just remember that like Kubrick was always like I want to do something with Spielberg so like Spielberg yeah that's well that's why a I came yeah yeah so so I just told you that you're wrong yeah he said yeah basically and the chat says rhetorical says Gilliam the answer is Gilliam good job guys Terry Gilliam here's a story this is fascinating 1995 Kubrick enlisted Terry southern to script a sequel titled son of Strangelove Kubrick had Terry Gilliam in mind to direct the script was never completed but index cards laying out this story's basic structure were fort were found among southern papers after his October 1995 death it was set largely in underground bunkers where dr. Strangelove had taken refuge with a group of women of course in 2013 Gilliam commented I was told after Kubrick died by someone who had been dealing with him that he had been interested in trying to do another Strangelove with me directing I never knew about it until after he died but I would have loved to love to do so I mean that would have been cool it's Gilliam Strangelove who is anyhow that is our quiz dr. Strangelove one of my favorite movies you if you haven't seen it you need to watch finish watching this show please finish watch this show and then go and go watch dr. Strangelove because it is so so freakin awesome I love that movie so much okay now it's the time that all you guys have chat are complaining about getting to the point it's time for the Q&A so do we have that audio clip there okay Q&A session okay let's open it up to you guys in the chat session what do you guys want to talk about what do you have to ask us what kind of weird crazy demented things that you guys want all right well let's find out Tim did you did you gather any questions while you were over there okay well there is about a thirty to sixty second delay for the for the streams but we did have that one question that was asked earlier which was would you ever do a whole episode of the live show showing a behind-the-scenes of how you made it live show yeah I think I thought it was the for the the lessons because yeah if we did it behind the scenes of the live show maybe it was about blessedly be this this is basically the behind the scenes yeah is like how many things can Jon screw up yeah I could john screw up the audio this week yeah how can we mess things up that's a no-no like so the question comes up once in awhile that what do we do a behind the scenes of how to make a course video the fact of the matter is it's kind of boring because most of it like 90% of it is writing it and researching it which is like Wikipedia book like a PDA think about it for a little bit ponder yeah there yeah and that's that's most of the making of the show then it's kind of what you saw which was me from the green screen doing my own spiel and then the boy I showed in the render garden thing we would do reproduce the plate and then at that point we animate my we I means basically me I sit here and I animate all this stuff and put sound effects on it and out it goes in the door so that's that's kind of it it's not terribly exciting stuff to watch okay absolutely all right also we I see a question of there it says do you have much of a preference for viewing movies in the theater or on TV actually like that one that was why I wanted to make sure what's up I actually I think I prefer theater over just because when you're home and you're watching and something in front of the TV yeah it's cool because you can rewind and and like play again or stuff like that I'll get up and make food or like all mister I'm distracted there's there's the phone there's you know there's the internet whatever but when you're in the theater you really do have that mindset because you know it's just hit on so many times you have your phone off all you're doing is putting your focus into the movie you might whisper a few things to your friend about like oh you know make a comment funny comment here but I think I think theater is probably my most preferred place to kind of like focus in on a movie and that depends to also if you have a good theater experience because oh yeah that theatre experiences is even worse than being at home right because like if you're I mean we've delved in there but if in a movie theater and there's somebody like crying my somebody crying I mean a baby crying I don't mean like a 30 year old woman crying over there I didn't have nothing to do with that okay I'm just digging a hole yeah yeah it keeps no oh you have you have good a good theater experience you know that's kinda like there's a theater nearby here it's called titan' they cover things called titan' luck so this is reclining seats and all that I still haven't been yet yeah we got a guy think of it we all have to go over there well the kind of nice thing and then this is bad to say but because it's $15 it kind of gets rid of the people that aren't there to see a movie yeah like if you just I loved the cheap theaters I love them to death because I go there all the time but like some people treat that as I can babysitting things so they just bring their kids and and like they bring the strollers into an r-rated movie come on I want to watch get out I don't want to hear a baby screaming it's just bizarre let me how like that's a great I love the Titan that experience so you get to see the 4k you see it's big old surround sound which I don't have at home I don't have the space for it at home so yeah I love the theater and things when I'm watching movies at home I've got a minute I fall asleep like yeah so yeah exactly I just fall asleep you're just that's the other thing too just you're like you're relaxed or just like if I fall asleep you know fall asleep he's died it's just it's sad all right the question Tim there was one that just went up on out of the live chat if he was saying about first time filmer yeah it said what is the thing a new filmmaker should learn ie never held a camera besides an IFO yeah I like that one oh you guys you should have like sent that in beforehand so I can think about it I'm not like a fool no that's great don't worry about it so good was that rule Thursday's of ed says rule thirds I think that's a good one um you can learn some things about composition I think one thing that discovered it's really helpful if you start thinking in terms of how to tell how to speak a sentence in cinematic language and that sounds very advanced I think the way I'm the way I'm describing this now it's very advanced but basically it's like alright well I'll give you an example like with the I'm gonna break character now the dream sequences that we shot yeah all right so basically how can I tell a story okay I'm going to start with a medium shot and I'm gonna go to a close-up and I'm gonna cut to this close-up and then cut to this close-up like we shot that stuff we didn't storyboard any of that stuff now we just basically we because we understand the story how to tell a sentence it's cinematically how to tell us that it's like go to medium go to close up close up close up cover cover okay and then we're out mm-hmm and that's that's I wish I could kind of distill that in something that's a little more easy to understand by somebody that's brand-new but the trick is I think maybe the best thing to do if you're brand new to filmmaking is to like take a movie that you like and try to make a scene out of the movie try to like makeup parody because that's exactly what I did is growing up that's like how that's how basically we all did in high school we did these parodies of fur fur for our school program and it'd just be parodies of these movies and so that's kind of a good way to start I think is just to try to a good let's reword it a good way to start is to copy your favorite movie shot-for-shot if you can do that that's a great way to start now you're not gonna go sell it obviously and it's you can't like you're breaking copyright law of course but it's a great way to learn and that's all we're trying to do so I think it's good way to answer that I know the question is honestly what do you think is more beneficial to an aspiring filmmaker rewatching movies to dig deeper or watching new movies to broaden your scope or what is the value of rewatching I honestly say none of that for myself but I would say me option see ya write your own yeah I mean you don't even have to use it just write something out in and if you think of something that worked in a movie that you liked maybe then figure out a way that it might work for you in your story but they've already written this story they've already done it and shot it but while it's cool to see these things and enjoy them and experience them you need to do something for yourself and I mean that's just my opinion and I will totally agree now I give to people was like ok you let's say you want to be a chef what do you do are you going to go and eat in every restaurant in every like five-star restaurant well yeah you're gonna do that but is that gonna teach you how to be a chef no no you can sit like so yeah if you if you're a filmmaker and you watch every great movie ever made sending you're a better filmmaker I mean you pick up some things but you're not gonna be a you don't know you don't know you don't understand all the stuff that could you don't understand how the sausage is made to double back on though I mean and again breaking kind of what we did the dream sequence you saw in my dream sequence it was very in wide and stuff like that we we kind of took nuances from Evil Dead like to make that and and kind of do that so yeah we saw that like that lens and that kind of idea from Evil Dead we took that nuance from it and made it into our story of just you know something that we could bring to you guys and I think that that aspect is what makes oh great that's not what we're not discounting watching movies because you absolutely have to do that yeah as part of your education is to watch movies but the other part of Education is you can't be a filmmaker unless you actually go out and make stuff and learn how the process all comes together and realize oh this is a lot harder than excuse me it's a lot harder not harder for me to speak not harder than it then it's harder than it looks it really is I mean and I'm not we're not trying to shy people away from it was like go out there and do it go out there and actually make some films that's how you learn yeah exactly we did a pretty good job with that question I think so to ourselves an A on that one yep so I saw a question that was asked a while ago and it said what was one of the what was your favorite IQ lesson to make so far that one's up to you I think my favorite one was probably that blocking video honestly yeah it was a really fun experience being up there on YouTube space and getting to just play on that that lot I think that that whole set up because not only were we able to just get more done and the lighting just being basically like we could flood a room if we needed to or dim it down or we were had full control and that I think that was probably one of the funnest parts plus it was just a cool set it looked like San Francisco and like yeah a little bit of the 1980s my favorite part of that that shoot was the very end of it sounds horrible no but the very end was when we we did we did the version 5 and that was the version we was like ok let's come up with something stupid and crazy yeah and like it wasn't scripted we were like sitting you know because Joe and I wrote that scene yeah it was we'll take the blame for it but the actors you know they came up with that that whole all the the funniness stuff of it and you know something silly like the way Emily took the the they took the sticky notes and she like put the sticky note against his chest oh yeah it was backwards and it was like it couldn't it didn't work right it didn't work right yeah subtle things like that I think and that's when I talked about when when I tell people about filmmaking is you can't you can't predict a lot of stuff that happens so the way I the way I think about I mean yes I the heck out of these things but sometimes you just have to let things you plant it and you let it go and then you're amazed by what what grows out of it and when you like that blocking video what came out of that last one just just blew me away how much like how come how funny that end up being it was just I loved it it was it was a really great video and I'm glad people were responding to that video that was one of our best videos yeah so I alright well actually I'm gonna throw it to Tim because Tim might have read another one I've missed paying attention we were talking about the blocking video and it was like okay well some people are asking about your opinion on Oscar nominations who you thinks gonna win stuff like that yeah we are just kind of tease it right now but we're going to do it we're gonna do a longer form Q&A session on Saturday just so we can hang out and just talk about everything because I we actually coming up close on time how long we can do this yeah but yeah I was browsing through the Oscar nominations today and looks kinda good you know I need to see I need to see couple more movies I want to see I might Anya because I think Rob I think Margot Robbie's got a good shot at that I would any I wanted to see Bill the three three billboards out of Billings Missouri that was in theaters for a little bit then it went back out again it was in then out then in and out and well hopefully they'll bring it back yeah I love the I wouldn't say well I really really enjoyed shape of water really really dug that movie I don't know if I loved it but I might have to be I don't have to watch another time to realize to see if I loved it but I thought it was a really great movie and yeah he won the Golden Globe good for it man cuz that's a it was accomplishment it's kind of cool you know after seeing all the Star Wars movies and all the Marvel movies which I love but yeah it's good to see something alright so I saw should boss baby win know the animated picture and no no I I would say yeah Coco because we haven't seen Coco yet I did actually talk about it now yes alright cool yeah Coco was awesome yep I love the grandma character she was I love this yeah my grandmother could be great yeah yeah know what and Disney's like ah put it out there it's not gonna do much business screw it yeah you know they didn't really put much marketing behind it but I mean it's probably the best Pixar movies there was another one that was like I people didn't really talk about it was like the book of life or the like it was another or animated very reminded me very much of Coco but it was I was like two years back I sadly can't think of the name of it but I think it is a book of life where kind of go they one guy dies and then but it was really heart wrenching to it was like wow is that just kind of that culture where all of the the story is kind of lead to the underworld but have this really like heart-wrenching moment where I start to kind of tear up and I was like oh okay well well but to throw funny funny bit of trivia history Stanley Kubrick called up the guy who wrote The Shining yeah what's-his-face I'm blanking Stephen King Stephen King yeah thinking in the middle of night saying like does the fact that don't you think that all ghost stories are optimistic he's like what it's like yeah the fact that there's life after death there's optimism there's optimistic yeah there you go yeah yeah and that's one way of looking at it it's it's you know if there's life after death hey yeah it's not so bad yeah yeah what do you think about the controversy surrounding the three billboards movie I don't know about the controversy yeah I don't either so sorry about that yeah come back on Saturday yeah well look well look it up by then is there any movie genre that you just don't enjoy I don't like war movies for the most part that's an interesting one question I can't think of a genre that I really dislike or will avoid crazy about like what's called torture porn oh yeah I mean is it just doesn't do anything I mean it kind of grosses me out more than so yeah that's something I don't really care for yeah anything else I don't know I mean overall give something about a shot like I don't know anything where I see and I'm just like I mean there's ones that I feel are like just bait like click like movie bait where it's just like come see the nose I'm like yeah but even those like sometimes you click play our click movie might be something that is entertaining or have some kind of value to it weird is like like there's movies that are entertaining the movies that are like your homework yeah and then when I was like III want to avoid the movies at our homework but I started watching the homework movies and I started enjoying them yeah oh well no because movies should be entertaining exactly shouldn't be that painful unless you're into that kind of thing yeah I know so just kinda taking a weird yeah all right all right okay maybe you wanted maybe one or two more one one more question okay let's see which is the best sounding movie for you sounding like music or sound effects and all that stuff yeah I guess sound design I guess maybe driver is a good that's a good movie for a sound I missed on that one I haven't seen that one yet baby driver I was because I love Simon & Garfunkel yeah waiting I was like come on play it play baby driver and then they finally play at the very end spoiler alert but come on it's name of the movie yeah spoiler for that yeah but yeah baby dream is pretty good traffic what other sound effects you know you you want to go back to like Star Wars it's for meeting the iconic sounds Ben Burtt sound designer of Star Wars creating all those amazing sound effects yeah basically go on YouTube and steel to put my students because they're so iconic stuff like that even that's the only thing I could think I was trying not to go to that like yeah those but well you know you gotta give props to Ben Burtt the guy yeah the guys are freaking amazing he's he's awesome so yeah definitely think that's that's that's a good good sound as a movie alright so I think that's all we have time for tonight guys only been out here for seven hours so now yep the long one thing all right so let's take it away and go to our the fourth wall and with that our show comes to a close thanks to Joe – Tim – Edie for helping me create this wild crazy and bizarre show I wouldn't have it any other way honestly I loved it and yeah our next our next appearance will be on Saturday we're gonna have a live Q&A session so if you like the Q&A search – today we're going to do a Q&A a free-for-all Q&A for about an hour an hour half or so on Saturday so make sure you watch YouTube for a notification on that come and join us we're going to talk about whatever you guys want to talk about just throw questions we'll just hang out you know we want to talk about the Oscar nominations what talked about cameras you want to talk about acting you wanna talk about casting whatever it is come come on Saturday well post the time it's where are you sometime in the afternoon here in the Southern California PST and come hang out we'll have some fun okay January has been kind of rough on all of us because it's been like flu season is there's a germ going around and it's basically killed every one of us at some point at some point we've all felt under the weather so it's kind of hampered my plans for what I wanted to do in 2018 was someone I wanted to start to get doing in 2018 however there are some new exciting things to talk about so we just wrapped up the production on the first couple episodes of our new series for filmmaker IQ this is a series of interviews I conduct with different people in the filmmaking industry job said you may not think about not the directors necessarily or the actors although I'm sure I'll talk to one of those guys sooner or later but other people in the industry it's some really exciting things I can't wait to show you guys what that's gonna be like I still have to put the show together so we're looking at probably early February mid February and we're gonna do another live show again in late February and we'll do with a live Q&A and then I've got a new course that I'm working on I'm really excited for this one it really excited it is the science of exposure but we're going way beyond the exposure triangle are way beyond expose your triangles what they teach you in like grade school now this is college-level stuff I'm going to teach you about how metering works the science of metering and once you don't you understand how metering works man it all comes together it all starts to make sense so I'm going to really a really deep dive into exposure but I've kind of get it right so I've got to make sure I can I compile all this great information and make it a way that's easy to understand and that's difficult that's very difficult but that's my goal that's my call so look for that late February maybe early March with that episode so with that said make sure you check out our sponsor audible at audibletrial.com/preneurcast in further there's always patreon.com slash filmmaker IQ we post a lot of patreon Members Only stuff there and we appreciate every little bit you guys

    Your channel is so fantastic. I guess I've watched some of them for three times over the years. They're so compact and also great for binge watching too.
