Hey,


Haven't been around in awhile. Mostly traveling and doing art stuff, etc. However, getting back into motion lately. 


I've got a dumb question... I'm trying to cut a teaser movie trailer for something I just wrote. It's all very spec of course, and I'm pretty on my own at the moment and trying to use my own clips. Is there a way we can download full-res clips from our own portfolio without having to pay for them? I'm sure I can find everything I've got uploaded on a backup somewhere, but I was wondering if it's possible to just simply have access to downloading our own stuff free of charge.

iStock does have (or used to have) a little-known policy of providing you with a mailed hard drive of your entire portfolio for a nominal fee plus the cost of the drive in case you loose all your work, but to the best of my knowledge that's the closest thing to what you're asking about.

There's no way to use the front end of the website to download your own work without paying.

Dang, was afraid of that. I've found a few clips of my own I'd like to use, but the naming conventions aren't the same as what I named them for local copies. Will be a chore looking through 1700 clips to just find the two I'd like to use. sad


Thanks for the info!

I thought I read in the forums somewhere that iStock would no long do that.

They don't do that anymore. Lost over 600+ clips due to hard drive failure and no love from Istock (even there was an act of good will) but I broke up exclusivity soooo, maybe you should try...

Always a good idea to have your clips and images in as many HDs as possible, Right now I have 5 copies and scattered in 3 locations.  Still not fullproof but it helps with teh piece of mind.


Good to hear from you Skip!

Hey James!


Luckily, the first drive I checked had everything I needed on it. Didn't even have to search back ups. Had two of my clips that I wanted to use for a teaser movie trailer. It's for a feature script I just finished writing that takes place in Mexico. I'm not even sure what I'll do with it, and it needs to be edited down and a couple other things added... but in the meantime I thought I'd try to piece together some footage to make something that at least had the right mood/vibe. 


Here's the title using the two clips of mine on istock I was looking for. I know there's loads of great stuff in istock, but this project is about as speculative as you can get, so I wanted to use my own stuff I wouldn't have to pay for.

Nice intro. Glad you found what you needed.  Good luck on the production, could do well at TruTV or a similar channel.

Thanks for looking James! It's really not something that would go on that network at all... or maybe I suppose. This is just the title card for the end of the teaser/trailer. It's based on a true story and involves very odd desert characters, dangerous obsession, and near death. There's a spirit world component as well as some psychedelia. Might be more than I can actually do on my own, but I'm pushing it along little by little. 


Need to tighten up the script, and then will use the teaser mostly to hopefully generate interest in reading the screenplay at minimum. It could be the project doesn't get beyond the finished script and teaser though. I'm not THAT delusional.

Cut a quick teaser movie-trailer using some of my stuff and some Kodak flip-cam stuff I shot mostly for blog use. Going to fix up the text with some snazzy Apple Motion and add some effect, but this is just a quick outline I did with just whats available in iMovie wink Should serve it's purpose for now.

Ok so that trailer does shw way more and I get the general idea. Seems to be an experience film with a searching for a way or answers component.   Was that Peyote?  I am guessing, have never seen it live.  In my view titles are better when less is more. Less motion, less colors and a more traditional typeset.  Then again this film looks very tripy so it is probably more Rodriguez than Lean. 


Geat vistas and places, was that a mine for copper or silver?


 


I think what wildacad meant was that since your horse clips are very popular you should shoot more. I think those were with the old trusty HV10.

Oh, I get it now. Yes, was the HV10. That reminds me... I actually still have that stored away somewhere. Might pull it out for that good ol' "video" look. lol


At this point, it's only intended to be put on a disk with a registered PDF of my screenplay. Just to give a very rough idea. Your assessment is pretty close. Probably more of a mix between Lean and Jodorowsky (Holy Mountain), though... Rodriguez is actually mentioned in the film several times. 


Yes, that was "Mescalito" smile

That wasn't a mine, but it's the mine-like tunnel that goes through the mountain to Real de Catorce... an old mining town. They mined several things there, but I believe in it's prime, it was mostly silver.
