    P.s. Really though, don’t let audio be an afterthought, it’s so important. You might have a beautiful film but if the audio sucks the viewer will be taken right out of it. Editors can only do so much in post. Trust me.

  6. All my friends know how excited I was to see “Monsters” at the LA FILM FEST this past year. I was even more excited when the director, Gareth Edwards gave a Q&A after the show and I found out he did all the special effects himself in his basement. BIG KUDOS TO HIM!  

    Here is a short video talking about how he managed to create some of the effects. 

    As a horror/sci fi nut and filmmaker to boot, “Monsters” is one of the most inspiring movies of this year, onscreen and behind the scenes.

    It’s currently been pre-released on Zune via XBOX. Seriously, go watch it now. 

    Happy Halloween Everyone!
