Film Production

Dear madam, dear sir, "i didn't shoot sara" is a full-length machinima animated thriller. It means the start as filmmaker for me. There are lots of experiences i have that help me realizing this project: computer programming, photography, videography, editing, graphic design, writing. The only thing i'm new to is marketing a film like this one. Unfortunately i cannot offer a budget. Therefore i'm looking for someone who believes that i can produce an excellent movie ready to bring to the cinemas. As you don't know me, i will give you any information you desire. Firstly, to learn a bit about me just google "kuhrmeier" and you will find me (arthur) five times on the first page. Secondly, there are websites where you can find the movie and the progress of it. In short: the script is finished, the cast is growing, production has started. Simply google "i-didnt-shoot-sara" and check the first eight hits. Thirdly, i will answer any question you have about me or the movie. Though i don't have a budget (yet), i was able to gather a team willing to work on the project accepting a share of the income. When it comes to finances this is everything i can offer. But i believe there is more that i can offer: my strong will to succeed, my passion for movies and filmmaking, and my crazy perfectionism. These are things that don't count on your bank account, but they count in life. I very much hope that you contact me. Just talk to me, give me a chance, and then decide if this project is the right one for you to support. I do thank you for your time. Love and success, arthur

The illusions used in the film, television, theater, or entertainment industries to simulate the imagined events in a story are traditionally called special effects (a.k.a. SFX, SPFX, or simply FX). Special effects are traditionally divided into the categories of optical effects and mechanical effects. With the emergence of digital film-making tools a greater distinction between special effects and visual effects has been recognized, with "visual effects" referring to digital post-production and "special effects" referring to on-set mechanical effects and in-camera optical effects. Optical effects (also called photographic effects), are techniques in which images or film frames are created photographically, either "in-camera" using multiple exposure, mattes, or the Schüfftan process, or in post-production processes using an optical printer. An optical effect might be used to place actors or sets against a different background. Mechanical effects (also called practical or physical effects), are usually accomplished during the live-action shooting. This includes the use of mechanized props, scenery, scale models, pyrotechnics and Atmospheric Effects: creating physical wind, rain, fog, snow, clouds etc. Making a car appear to drive by itself, or blowing up a building are examples of mechanical effects. Mechanical effects are often incorporated into set design and makeup. For example, a set may be built with break-away doors or walls, or prosthetic makeup can be used to make an actor look like a monster. Since the 1990s, computer generated imagery (CGI) has come to the forefront of special effects technologies. CGI gives film-makers greater control, and allows many effects to be accomplished more safely and convincingly -- and even, as technology marches on, at lower costs. As a result, many optical and mechanical effects techniques have been superseded by CGI.
