I love how some folks are still jumping in here assuming that I wouldn't be informing the police that I have fake guns, though I have said many times, I would be.

I sent a fax of my crew list, my props list, and my approximate time-ins and time-outs... never even had an officer drop by to see how it was going.

As for a small to medium budget film, if you need guns and need a field to use 'em in, go FAR up north and find a patch of land with no one in sight.
Thankfully, I still fall within the realm of 'student.' Though I am done film school (humber), most of my crew are still currently enrolled. Wow, were you within sight of the 400 with those guns?!

And don't worry, I already found my patch of land (that being, sod property covering almost ALL of Alliston), and there are many places without a soul in sight. So long as the police in the air are aware, I'm safe.

i enjoyed the animations and had a little laugh. i like how the sounds were timed appropriately with the syllables....one thing...the sounds themselves were a little irritating...nice scenes though and i like how you put it together!

You should be alright, just make sure that the cops know what's shakin and as well that the land you're using is either not owned by anyone, or if it is, acquire a release form from them. F*ck, i can probably pass you up a couple of templates, i had to go through a shitload of them with my latest film (which is now in post... AVID editing rawks.)

My buddy Dave shot a WW2 film up in alliston with deact M1's and some guy apparently had an airsoft Tommy... Film came out nice and crisp, shot on an XL2.

If you need any help, advice etc. please don't hesitate to PM me.

GiordanoWC, dude, the land is indeed owned I already made a deal with the farmer. (I've had to say that about 50 times now, lol).

The XL2 has a nice picture by the way, and I like how it has native 16:9. I own a DVX100a.

Yeah, they grow on you. But I also worked on making their voices a little less harsh and jarring in Ep. 2
