I&#39;ve been working in the film industry for over 5 years. Last year, our team started a new sound effect creation service <a href="http://diforb.com/" class="bb-url" rel="nofollow">http://diforb.com/</a></p> <p>On our website, you can find a large amount of free sound effects &ndash; gunshots, explosions, and sounds of different animals. Also, we offer lots of other ones that are perfectly suitable for movies and animation. Our service can be helpful for the indie film-makers as it allows to select and adjust desired sound effects effortlessly.</p> <p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/sound-effect-maker" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/sound-effect-maker#comments Movie-making Techniques Fri, 13 May 2016 10:30:57 +0000 VictorSound 1056766 at http://www.dvforums.com My original music free for everyone http://www.dvforums.com/forums/my-original-music-free-everyone <p>Hi everyone,</p> <p>I&#39;m an indie filmmaker who also enjoys creating music for my fellow artists and media creators.</p> <p>I&#39;ve created a site with free music that you can use in your projects...commercial, noncommercial, personal, whatever you like.

Any hints? http://www.dvforums.com/forums/my-cameras-cant-cope-supersaturated-colours-produced-led-parcans-any-hints <div> I&#39;ve shot two shows recently which have been lit with LED parcans. One was theatre, one dance, but both resulted in oversaturated colours such that my cameras - Sony EX1s, and Sony Z5Es recording to Ninjas - just couldn&#39;t cope with the bright blues, and I&#39;ve ended up with something very ugly indeed. Even lots of post-correction couldn&#39;t fix it.</div> <p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/my-cameras-cant-cope-supersaturated-colours-produced-led-parcans-any-hints" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/my-cameras-cant-cope-supersaturated-colours-produced-led-parcans-any-hints#comments Movie-making Techniques Wed, 16 Jan 2013 19:24:49 +0000 Mark M 1055266 at http://www.dvforums.com
