Telly Award (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Ever wanted to make a movie, but don’t have and money or place to put any fancy green or white screens? This video explains in a clear and smart way how to make your own whiteroom cheaply, and with little space. The silver Telly Award winning video of 2009 explains that using massive amounts of bright lights, a camera, a garage, and an 8*4 textureless piece of paneling will create a seemingly infinite white background. That way inspiring movie makers can start experimenting with whitescreen in their own garages.

The materials and prices are listed below:

  • 15 clamp lights = $105
  • 2 floor lamps = $20
  • 21 CFLightbulbs = $60
  • 8*4 paneling = $10
  • 2 Gallons paint = $20
  • Canvas Dropcloth = $20

All together that is $235 including stuff the guy already had around his home like spackle sandpaper, a paint roller, and PVC pipe.

This video provides an inexpencive way to experience a portion of a proffesional greenscreen and is great for anyone who has an interest in filming and greenscreens.

This article from cbc states that Apple, one of the most valuable and profitable companies in the world today raised it’s total income 93 percent! The main cause for the massive profit increase would be their Iphone sales. The Cupertino, Calif.-based company said it sold 35 million Iphones in the past 3 months, or nearly double the total in the same timeframe last year. Iphones now account for 58 percent of Apple’s total revenue. 3 years ago they were only 27 percent. Most of Apple’s sales have been in China, and will probably stay that way for a long time concidering how many people reside in China. The article also explains that Apple’s Mac sales have been below expectations by 4 million.

This article really frightend me. Technology is growing at such a surprising rate. I continue to wait for Apple’s next release.
