My Film is on the Web

Postby abschwar » Sat Jun 10, 2000 10:45 am

<FONT FACE="COMIC SANS MS" COLOR=RED><big>My short comedy, <A HREF= "http://www.ifilm.com/films.taf?film_id=128526">Hank's Big Vacation,</A> is now streaming on the Web! I'm not getting any renumeration for it, and there are certainly more elaborate productions on the same site, but seeing my film up there is a confirmation that I am a filmmaker, and that's very nice indeed.

Adam: The only audio player I have is Real Player, but when I clicked it, it told me I can't use that. Is there something I can download that will allow me to play it? Congratulations by the way. I can't believe you were just talking about this a short time ago, and here it is. Good for you. Image ------------------ Julia

<FONT FACE="COMIC SANS MS" COLOR=RED><BIG>Julia, are you trying to watch the film on a Mac? I can never seem to stream films on ifilm on the university's Macs, so I use an NT (or PC, or whatever they're calling them these days). Also, see if your computer has all the qualifications, such as amount of disc space, that are listed on the RealAudio download site. If nothing works get back to me and we'll find a technohead to help you. Thank you for your sweet words of praise! <I>Adam ------------------

<FONT FACE="CENTURY SCHOOLBOOK" COLOR=GREEN><BIG>Whoa, there! I was talking about two different videos. The "opportunity" referred to one I'm just in the early stages of doing. The one on the Web I produced back in May. Hey, I'm only human--like everyone else. <FONT FACE="COMIC SANS MS" COLOR=RED><big><i>Adam ("Late Bloomer")Schwartz ------------------

No, I don't have a Mac, we're talking Pentium I with 366, not sure how much disc space, but I'll check on Real Player site. Haven't had time to do that this weekend, but I'll check it out tomorrow! Thanks. I'll get back to you. ------------------ Julia

WWEELL DONE Adam!! The first time I have seen anything like this on the net. Thank you for having it so readily available with one click! I loved it. Really "down home" style. I too liked your choice of music. The characters were so genuine. Way to have your name in lights. I also rated it tops. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. ------------------ TTFN (Tah Tah For Now)

Adam, I'm a new member (older than you & still trying to find my real passion so I can make a midlife change) thus I am just catching up with members of this web site. I read your original letter & I congratulate you belatedly for such intimate sharing and, above all, for the wonderful accomplishments you have achieved so far. You could have caved in, but you kept trying to learn something new....good for you. I would love to see your video, but I am on Webtv and cannot do so. I live in Providence, R.I. where we have 2 film festivals. I know a professor who teaches film here at RISD (RI School of Design.) Do you want me to get yu his phone number and /or email address? ------------------ shelley

Greetings Adam! I am in a funk today and thought I'd check into the success forum for inspiration. THANK GOODNESS your film was there. Please don't be offended when I say it was "cute" and just what I needed to get a little smile on my face and in my heart. I hope there are new productions on the horizon. Again, Thank you very much! Janet
