Island spokesman Jerry Early told Donegal Daily that those stranded wanted the information to be made public so they can verify with work that their genuinely stuck on Arranmore Island.Early said, “All ferry services have been cancelled due to the terrible weather, the short crossing is just not safe to partake in these conditions and the correct decision was made.“Unfortunately it has left over one hundred people stuck out here on the Island, and many had to get off the Island to get back for work tomorrow morning.“At this time of the year you wouldn’t imagine the weather being so bad, that such a decision would be made, but unfortunately it has and it has left people in a pickle. “The weather is to settle and calm during the night, and we’re hopeful those stranded will be able to leave the Island first thing in the morning.“For the time being they’re being sorted with accommodation for the night.That’s the Irish summer for you.  HUNDREDS STRANDED ON ARRANMORE ISLAND AS ALL FERRY SERVICES CANCELLED was last modified: August 18th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Arranmore IslandcancelledFerry ServicesnewsStrandedlast_img read more

8 Filmmaking Tutorials Every Filmmaker Should Watch

first_imgFrom audio recording to zoom lenses, these insightful filmmaking tutorials are not to be missed.There’s a lot to learn in the filmmaking world. From scripts to distribution, there are a seemingly endless number of skills and techniques to master. This can be overwhelming for both new filmmakers and seasoned veterans alike. So, to save some time, we’ve compiled a list of eight filmmaking tutorials every filmmaker should watch. Even if you have years of experience, these comprehensive tutorials can be a great refresher to help kickstart your inspiration.1. How to Format a ScreenplayTutorial By: Indy MogulWriting a screenplay is not like writing a book; in the industry, there’s a very specific structure in which scripts are formatted. So, once you’re ready to put your ideas on paper, it’s a good idea to have your formatting down. Luckily, software like Celtx can help you format your script with ease. In this quick tutorial, Russell Hasenauer from Indy Mogul shows us a few basics of script formatting.2. How to Storyboard and Schedule Your FilmTutorial by: Film RiotOne of the best ways to convey what you want a shot to look like is to storyboard. Storyboarding is essentially a small picture that shows basic framing and composition. A storyboard can be incredibly detailed or simple. Really, it all depends on the scale of your film – and, frankly, your drawing skills.One of the most common mistakes made by young filmmakers is poor scheduling. Shooting a film takes a lot of time. So, if you want your film to be the best it can be, you need to quickly learn how to allocate enough time to shoot your scenes well while staying under budget. This quick tutorial shows us how it’s done.3. The Casting Process and Casting Call Dos & Don’ts!Tutorial by: Film RiotWant to ruin your film before it’s shot? Cast a bad actor to play your lead. In yet another fantastic tutorial created by Film Riot, Ryan Connolly shares a few tips for perfecting the casting process.4. Lenses, Composition, and Camera AnglesTutorial by: Tom AntosWhen it comes to composition, there are many rules to keep in mind: Don’t cut across the 180 degree line, always move more than 30 degrees between shots, observe the rule of thirds, etc.While these rules are certainly helpful, they aren’t mandatory – they’re only helpful guides to make the whole filmmaking process easier. In this quick tutorial, Tom Antos shares a few of the basic filmmaking rules to help us better understand composition.5. F-Stops vs T-StopsTutorial by: Matt GrangerAs one of the foundational elements of the exposure triangle, understanding your aperture is incredibly important to understanding cinematography in general. Early in your filmmaking journey you probably learned of the F-Stop, a mathematical formula designed to help photographers and filmmakers understand the speed of a lens. But in the filmmaking world, the even more accurate T-Stop is a better way to understand how much light is actually hitting the camera sensor. In this tutorial, Matt Granger shares the difference between an F-Stop and a T-Stop.6. Camera Movement Tutorial: How to Create EmotionTutorial by: The Slanted LensCamera movements have a huge role in conveying emotion and hidden meaning that couldn’t be shown through actors alone. In this awesome tutorial, The Slanted Lens shows us a few camera movement techniques that can be used to convey emotion.7. Basic Cinematic LightingTutorial by: RealmPicturesWant to make your film look more professional? Invest in some lights. Controlled lighting has the power to dynamically change the overall look and feel of your film, but don’t take my word for it. Check out this quick tutorial by DP Eve Hazleton, where she explains some of the basics of film lighting.8. The Basics of Recording Audio for Digital VideoTutorial By: Filmmaker IQIt’s often said that a film is 50% what is seen and 50% what is heard. Audio plays a vital role in any film. Want to find out if you’re watching an indie film or a blockbuster feature? Just close your eyes.

Five Ways to Improve Your Nasty, Foul Attitude

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now Your attitude is everything. (Here’s an attitude checklist)Your attitude is mostly made up of your beliefs, your blueprint of how the world works. But you don’t even need to get to changed beliefs to get a giant head start on improving your nasty, foul attitude.I’ve been working this recipe for some time now. Nothing revolutionary, just highly effective.Get a good night’s sleep: You might be able to survive on less sleep than seven hours. But you shouldn’t. On seven hours sleep I am something close to the Dali Lama. On five and half hours sleep I am about as tolerant as Josef Stalin. If you want to massively improve your attitude, try to sleep seven to eight hours a day. Too little sleep will put you in a crooked mood right out of the gate.Eat clean and never late: The better you eat, the better you feel. Drop the fast food, drop the snacks, and drop the sugar. Never eat tacos and pizza in the same day (ever). Eat mostly lean meats, fruit, and vegetables. Stop eating late at night, too. You’ll sleep better, and you’ll have more energy upon waking. Oh, and for God’s sake don’t wait too long between meals; your low blood sugar will make you a monster.Drink water: No, seriously. Drink more water. The research indicates that 70% of us walk around dehydrated. It effects your attitude, and it is one the primary reasons you are so tired—and grouchy. (As it turns out, coffee isn’t water. I checked . . . I hope to someday be proven wrong.)Get some exercise: You don’t have to go crazy (like Chris Brogan, who has probably finished his daily workout before many of us roll out of bed). A half an hour of running and a twenty-minutes of weights every other day will do wonders to improve how you feel—and it will improve your attitude. You were made to do physical work of a heavier burden than banging on the keys of a keyboard and shuffling a mouse back and forth across the desk.Decompress: Meditate. Get a massage. Take a hot bath. Sit someplace quite and read. Do whatever works for you, but do something to reduce stress (and life is full of stressors, regardless of how well you believe you are functioning). The time you spend recharging is what allows you to reengage with the world with a positive, empowered attitude. If you are in a foul mood, wind down a bit.You might believe that this has nothing to do with your sales or your business results. You would be wrong. Your brain is trapped inside your tired, bad-food-eating, dehydrated, stressed-out body. Your attitude and your energy are directly correlated to your results—in sales and in life.last_img read more
