    Where can I find free film editing software?
    I really need free film editing software, to put together a film I am making for school, but I would prefer it to be quite professional, as I have some idea's which I am not sure of how I am going to do them. I would like the program to let me be able to make custom opening and ending credits.

    Where do you develop your rolls of film in Dublin?
    I have just found out that Spectra don't give out free films any more. Do other places do?
    Why do you answer this serious question if you have got nothing to contribute?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, I am not sure about Spectra rolls of films but as a photography graduate I can help you with good addresses of photo labs in Dublin.

      I find a great high street photo lab is Gunn's on Camden street, small family run shop with great prices and student discounts on film processing, rolls and all equipment. John Gunn and his daughters offer great and friendly service and are always ready to give you pieces of advise for a shoot or any technical difficulties you may encounter.

      If you're looking for top notch quality processing and printing, then I would advise you to go to professional photography lab, Photolab, on Lennox street, which offers an irreproachable service. You can choose between having your work hand printed or automatically processed. They offer great service at reasonable prices. This is probably the best option for a final year project or work you're going to sell.

      If you're looking for the cheap option and decent quality, then Boots, in Jervis Shopping Centre, definitely does the trick. I've rarely been disappointed and they offer reprints if you're not totally satisfied.

      Good luck with your photography work :-)

    Can you suggest the best way to use limewire?
    I want to download free films and music but want only those which the artists allow to download.
    Can it be used legally?

    • ANSWER:
      Agreed, Limewire is full of viruses, and since the uploader can change the file name easily, you never really know what you are getting unless you preview the filed during download.

      Rather try using a torrent client of sorts eg BitComet, and get your files from a torrent site. Most torrent sites allow for comments to be posted on all files and follow strict rules regarding content.

      Hope this helps.

    Can anyone recommend a really great free online film school?
    I want to take some free online film courses. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      I would recommend going to youtube or googling this stuff. There are lots of online resources and step by step information available to you. Even documentaries on filmmaking sometimes have great tips.

      I've personally never heard of a free online course... you're not likely going to get professional tutoring for free, especially from a film school. If you really want to learn this stuff, you need to invest the money and time. Definitely better if you want to learn the technological side of filmmaking.

      Here's a list of film schools in the US that offer online tutoring. :)

    BUT on the other hand, its still a good opportunity to make connections and they shouldn't be paying someone who has practically no experience because it would be like free film school for me. & it could lead to a paying job.

    so what do you think?

    I got 2 of the free short films and they are downloaded. My itouch is plugged in already. How do i get the vids on my itouch?

    • ANSWER:
      iPod can only support mpeg4 video,so you must make sure the video is mp4 format ,you need to have a 3rd party tool to help you to convert dvds and video into mp4 or h264 format, add them into itunes library, then sync to ipod.

      Try DVD to iPod + iPod Video Converter Suite,it support convert video to iPod directly. Some other software need two steps: 1. convert video to avi; 2. convert output avi to iPod. That solution wastes lots of your time. We need only one step, direct convert video DVD to iPod. So this converter speed is far faster than others

    How to get random peeps to volunteer for film project? What are good places to find barefoot people for help?
    I'm a free-lance photographer/film artist (soon to be Film student) and I've been working on this short that I call "Idle Feet." Basically, what I'm aiming to do is capture a person sitting in a relaxed state, but with their feet propped up, as I'd be using the soles of their feet as the main point of focus... What I want to do is scout around and ask the help of random people, rather than use friends or family. I feel that by doing this, I get the perspectives of different people... What's really bugging me is how to go about asking random folks for their assistance. I get that people are sometimes uncomfortable in front of a camera, so I was wondering what were some ways that I could go about asking for volunteers, without coming off like a creeper or a weirdo. Plus, the other thing that I'm having trouble with is finding good places to actually find people that happened to be barefoot that I might could work with... Any suggestions on either topic would help... :-)

      OK! I know the answer. U can also download blu-ray movies. Ok. first of all, download a torrent software thingy. For example VUZE or Utorrent. There both good. Then, after u install it, go to either:

      and seach in the box for what movies u want (u can even download software or games etc. u can download ANYTHING and u can get ANY movie). Then download the torrent file which then opens up on ur torrent software. Then it starts downloading and ur download will automatically go to the Downloads folder:)

    How do i get the sims 2 free time film and literature membership?
    my sims has full enthusiasm for films, but no man has come to give his the membership to the secret lot. any help???

    • ANSWER:
      I know why. I've had the same problem!

      You don't have to make his enthousiasm 10, it has to be 5! Make it five and just go on with your life, then after a while the phone will ring and someone will tell you that if you keep up the good work, you'll receive membership. After that the head of the club will visit you and it's done!

      You can change your sim's enthousiasm by entering this code, while you're in the neighbourhood screen:
      >>> Boolprop testingcheatsenabled true
      >>> Now go back to your house and you'll see that you can drag all bars (including mood bars and relationship bars)
      >>> Make his enthousiasm for literature 5

      To set the boolpropcheat off, enter: "Boolprop testingcheatsenabled false"

      Good luck (altough you won't need any)
