Just because you can...

doesn't mean you should. mcamason shared a video with us last Saturday (what what?) and I can't get that stupid song out of my head so I made some icons for it. But to make up for that I also made some Big Bang Theory bases (because I love Sheldon) and made an Alaska icon for sarahtoalaska whether she wants it or not.

i love your choice in fonts
i think you're my new favourite film font chooser
how you would you like to work for me as a film font chooser?
(that's a rhetorical question, you're going to help me with that crap anyway, you have no choice there, hehe)

=)

and by the way ..... WHAT, WHAT?

LOL! OKAY!!

are you serious????? because i love fonts!!! i should not admit this because i know some AMAZING font choosers out there and i'm no where near as good as them but when i do these icons i test out about 20 fonts to see which one i like best. then i drag john over and do the "better 1 or better 2" thing. it's pretty sad, really.

but if that's a real job for movies - I AM THERE!!!

and also in any other capacity you need and i really really really want to be the person with the clackerboard, whatever it's called :) :) :)

And this is the first I've ever heard of this term....

I'm sure Raven will have tons of interesting jobs for all of us to do. His movies will quite likely resemble Bowfinger

Actually when I first saw Bowfinger, that's exactly what came to mind: "This is probably what my crap is going to turn out like", hehe.

I guess there's a reason why I admire Ed Wood, Hammer Films, GrindHouse, and other low budget cheese fests.

=)

Btw, the more I think about DarkPlace, the more I like it.
Go Darth Ferengi .... I mean Garth Marenghi, hihi.

darn it, i don't get it yet. what is kerning? i'm going to have to look that up now.

i like words :)
madladyred
Feb. 29th, 2008 11:24 pm (UTC)
for anyone who may be reading this (you never know)
that joke is REALLY funny after it's explained.
thankfully McAmason sent it to me with this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerning

my bad explanation Kerming: is spacing within the word (word versus w o r d) which you do all the time in photoshop moving the letters closer together or further apart for attracive spacing on the icons versus legibility. if you get the letters too close together it can become illegible, as in the r and n really close together look like an m (rn) so you get keming. ha ha ha ha ha :)

i love clever jokes. i don't always *get* them, but i love them nonetheless :)
and also - i learned a new word! yay for words! :)

Yes I'm actually pretty serious about the font thing, cause I get stupid with fonts and in the end, I end up using no more than three fonts, cause choosing them drives me insane (ask Matt about the in depth conversation regarding fonts and lens flare at 4am Sunday morning, at DragonCon last year, hehe).

As for the slate/clapperboard, I'm not sure if it's a real job, of if they have ONE person assigned to it, but it's yours.

Basically the reason they use slates (I call it slate, but there are several different words for it, like everything in the English language, in german it's called FILM TAFEL, meaning FILM SLATE, and that's the end of it, everyone uses THAT word so everyone knows what it means when they hear that word!)

They have really fancy ones these days with digital displays and all that shit, but since it's mainly used for synchronize film and sound, WHO cares if ours is made of plain old wood, as long as it makes the clapping sound and has the film/scene/date/frame/etc. it. Also, if you're going to be the Slater (there, I just created a job title for you) I'm going to make you learn the whole scene/take/date/shot/etc. and how that works, so be warned and don't wear black, we're going to using old school white chalk on black slate (or we might upgrade to DryEraser, not sure yet, hehe).

Either way, as of now, you're the offical Fontchooser and Slater for HerzogRaven Products Ltd. Inc. All Rights Reserved. Copyrights owned by ME. 0 U 8 1 2. All your base are belong to us.

Kenton said it's actually called a clackerboard.... way to go Aps. It actually serves a purpose. It's so you have a way to align the audio and visual tracks. Cool Huh?

Oh, and I think we will have to have a contest for who can be mentioned in the credits the most.

Feb. 29th, 2008 05:20 am (UTC)
Like I said, it has like SEVEN official names, wtf is wrong with ENGLISH!?, hehe.

It's also a good scene marker, so if you're editing actual "film" (negtiaves that is). However, why anyone would do that anymore is beyond me, cause it's a PAIN in the ass to work with that analog shit! Cutting EXPENSIVE ass film by hand, you screw up, you gotta start all over again, no APPLE+SHIFT+UNDO buttons ... screw that, I'm already spoiled by the ease of digitalness.

As for the credits, we HAVE to make them interesting, otherwise they'll be like everyone else's credits ... BORING!

Hey! Damn it, when I posted about the clackerboard you hadn't posted yet. Damn it! Not my fault. Maybe we were posting at the same time or something. Darn it. I was excited to have the answer before you were here.

The funning thing is... I totally would have called it a clackerboard. Because... well... it is. If I had been the person naming it. Seriously however. These are YOUR friends we are talking about. We are going to say stuff like.. "Where is the clacky thing?" Accompanied by the clacky motion. So who cares what it's really called? Of course this IS you... you'll probably call it a Film Tafel. I think you should MAKE the slater wear black. that would be HILLARIOUS.

Oh! Kenton just told me I can make my own font. My OWN FONT. I had no idea. I am SO doing that.

ha!! i thought i made that word up!!! LOL! go me :)
i must have heard it somewhere and it was in my unconsious (however you spell that)

remember the credits in Monty Python's Holy Grail? we should sneak some of that stuff in :)

OH - Raven's movies will become cult classics because of the end credits alone!!
(and at universities they will be used as drinking games, you take a hit everytime certain peoples names appear - which will then add to their reknown...)
