    CS6 subtitling 

    POST : Then you could use the “Closed Captioning” function of Premiere to show the files in Premiere.

    If You need to burnin subtitles take a look at: PT ImportSubtitles for Afeter Effects. You can render SRT-Subtitles with the AE Text Tools in AF and then send a Dynamic Link to your Premiere timeline…

    Preset Detail – t-rox:3 – RED GIANT PEOPLE.

    Can we ever have enough of particles/light coming together to form a title/logo/thingy only to be destroyed in a highly expected explosion with much shakiness? Probably. Did that stop me from making this? Obviously not.

    Uses Trapcode Shine, Form and Quick looks. Also uses Optical Flares.

    Do you know what the gospel is?
    Do you know what it isn’t?
    Are there temptations now to sin? (to idolatry/pride)
    Are temptations to sin coming thru me unto others?

    film is not necessarily about WHAT you see – but it’s almost more an exercise in what you DON’T or CAN’T see. The best Directors and DPs show you only what is relevant to the story and never introduce a random shot or character if they can at all avoid it. I’ve always preached that a director or photographer should INCLUDE elements in a frame or shots that add to the story, and EXCLUDE elements or shots that detract from it.

    Maybe great is what happens when ‘very good’ gets tired.

    Self consciousness will turn the prettiest face ugly and make the mist vivid personality dull grey. The hardest thing to do is to be yourself. When somebody says just be yourself, what do you do? Especially if you don’t know who you are.

    Books to Read 

    I would start with a writer whose beautiful and supple prose influenced me as a child and continues to influence me as an adult writer: Ray Bradbury. Pick up any of his short story collections (TheMartian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, etc.) and savor his sentences. I think you will find him less daunting than some of the more classical masters of prose. After Bradbury, move on to C. S. Lewis. His sentences tend to be shorter but no less rhetorically effective. Start with Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity. G. K. Chesterton is another prose stylist, whose sentences are a bit more complicated than those of Lewis. I’d suggest Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man.

    I’d suggest you then move on to some of the great Victorian prose stylists. Try Newman’sIdea of the University, John Ruskin’s The Stones of Venice, and Matthew Arnold’s Culture and Anarchy. Then treat yourself to Dickens’s A Christmas Carol; read it slowly and savor the prose. If you want a taste of American prose, try Emerson’s Essays or Thoreau’s Walden.

    Finally, challenge yourself with the Sermons or the Devotions upon Emergent Occasions by John Donne. Donne is a master of baroque prose, and his sentences are truly works of art. Along with Donne, try Milton’s “Areopagitica” and Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. When you are finished, perhaps pick up a novel by Ernest Hemingway (For Whom the Bell Tolls or The Sun Also Rises) to experience a very different, deceptively simple prose style.
