Remake


#1

hi everyone im new here and me and a about 20 freinds are goinna remake reservoir dogs.

ill keep everyone posted on how we are goin.

we have got all our props and costumes and we are going to start filming on tuesday.

any comments or tips would be greatly apreciated!


#2

here’s a tip: try not to get sued :wink:


#3

were not selling it or anything its just for us to watch plus were just making for a practice before we start on our own material kind of like a test.


#4

I’ve actually thought about doing that. Good luck with it.


#5

Sounds cool but if it’s just for practice you guys might be better off

making original short films and evolving into bigger projects. That way

you guys can practice your writing as well. But keep me posted it sounds

interesting.


#6

yeah short films was my original idea but when we showed my freinds the reservoir dogs dvd they got really into the idea of remaking it!

we got all our locations today so filming will start as soon as possible!


#7

we filmed the walking scene at the start of the movie today it was alot of fun and we got some good footage


#8

What about your technical abilities, what kind of camera do you use and such? I hope it’s not all filmed with a hand held digital camera, haha.


#9

I hope it is. Wasting a high price camera on a remake would be nonsense.


#10

sounds fun! nice idea, good luck :slight_smile:

if you perform “kind of like a test” with a soapbox, you’re going nowhere.

unfortunatley we are using dv cameras we have 4 of them it was my choice to shy away from them but since we had a quantity of them we decided to use them.


#13

Sounds like great fun for getting your feet wet & seein’ what’s what 8)

Best of luck!


#14

Yes it is the point.



Um…it’s just a test like he said, I don’t get why he should waste money on something unoriginal like that. It seems he’s just doing it for fun, and applaud him for doing that. It seems like a fun idea.


#16

yeh its basically for fun to see if we like filmaking plus word got out at college and our multimedia, and audio design want to mark us on it! unfortunatley we dont have a spcific video class


#17

dont waste too much time on this, try your own shit i think its funner creating your own movies to showcase your ideas to the world


#18

As long as it’s for fun and nothing more, I don’t see anything wrong here.



Question: are you remaking the entire movie? Or just certain scenes?


#19

we were gonna do the whole movie but at the same time we got our original screenplay close to being finished so we are gonna do some key scenes


#20

you should post a scene on youtube
