Earlier this year we began production on quite an ambitious short film called Twice,
As a production company we have overseen quite a few large projects including a feature, but this was our first writing, directing, producing, gig. so naturally we wanted to be well prepared.
So we decided to delve into previs. after searching for quite some time i found frameforge to be the one that appealed to me the most, in fact the only critical thing i really have to say about frameforge was how hard it is to find evidence of its power on the net, you have to really search around to see some good results. but find it i did, and i took the leap, bought it, and began to learn it.
after many posts on this forum, and hours of a steep learning curve, im now pretty familar with frameforge, and used it to storyboard this 33scene short film.
anyway to the crux of the matter, we are on our final days of shooting. and i have to say, frameforge has been AMAZING! this production would not have gone the way it has without frameforge. the crew need only to take one look at a shot, and they know exactly what they need to do, but whats more, it allows greater creativity and freedom for the team as it feels like all of us have been working on set for months, im so familiar with the set that when we set up our first shot i was solving problems before they arrived.
i would recommend this program to anybody, its been amazing, and has really added a new level to our production. when im done shooting i plan on showing the previs/final comparisons.
i didnt however use the (recently discovered) power of attaching scripts to shots. which would have been very useful from the beggining, but now i know.
anyway, yeah its been great
