View Full Version : DSI Movie

December 18, 2003, 07:52 AM

Hey guys, PT here, bringing you, an all new topic!

Back in high school I made a pretty cool Improv Movie. I did it in the style of a documentary, like Ken Burns, but funnier! I would like to try to do the same thing with this company! Yet the only problem I'm facing right now, is whether to do it at all! I have some ideas, and it's best to describe them, only in person. Sorry, IMing and anything Text Type annoys me when trying to get an idea across, you understand.

If anyone thinks this is a good idea, please sign the poll or reply! I enjoy making a film now and then, hopefully others feel the same.

If anyone wants to help, then by all means, please do, any ideas, any...well anything would be awesomes to hear! I love having cameramen and other people working with me as well. It's a lot of work to do and it takes some dedication, but with me directing, I'll take most of the burden.

When I finished the HS film, it was well worth the time! It took me 6 months, and the film lasted 15 minutes! Yet to remember now, I was tangling a 5 day a week job, paying for a house and trying to graduate and hanging out with friends, whew!

Long story short, I believe, if this is to be done, it would be fun and very engaging. If anyone has a problem with being on camera (which is wierd, because we're all comfortable on stage!) please let me know.

This is PT, signing off for now! Let the rain pour and the snow float.

Cor, so many projects! First, we gotta work on the radio show. Ross has some experience with improv movies too, dun 'e?

Well, Sr. Scronce,

There are a lot of people in DSI...we probably even have enough to delegate some people to the radio project and some to the movie project. Frankly, I'd love to play with both, but I'd start with the filmy guy. So, I'm sure if enough people were committed to both projects, we could get them both looking awesome. Sweetness, and I'm spent.

True enough Bryan. This film is gonna be like rockin' the suburbs, only without Ben Fold's! Hmmmm, Ben Fold's, that might be a good addition?

Just when I think ppl at DSI can't possibly come up with another cool idea....I'm proven wrong. That sounds cool.

Thank you Dana, at least somebody out there loves me.

Does anybody have equipment...expensive cameras? Places to film...I'm close friends with people in the Carolina Production Guild on UNC-Chapel Hill campus...they helped me film a pornography...um, we don't have to talk about that though.
What do we want to do a film about?
I'm sure there are a hell of a lot of questions to ask before doing this...but, I might as well pose a few of 'em now :).
Shalom, baby, shalom.

To answer a few questions, this willl be a documentary film. It will be broken down into a number of individual parts. For instance, a piece on Mister Diplomat. Another on Tony's Pony, and other teams of past and ideas of teams for future. Some pieces will be on an individual, like a piece talking to Ross and Zach (but Zach will be hard considering he doesn't live here yet) about how DSI got started and where the ideas came from. A good piece will be talking to the coaches who teach Improv. Camera wise, I have one. Yeah that's it, if anyone else can contribute to another, awesomes!

Bryan you say you have the connection for good camera's? Awesomes! But remember, no nudity in this film, sorry to give up your hopes, but this will be a good wholsem film. Except if Scott wishes to get naked, then I have no power to stop him.
