Hey, so I'm editing a video for my friend (it's a First Person Shooter with guns (toy guns) explosions and all that) and I'm days into editing it and then I notice that all of the muzzle flashes have disappeared. I know they were there before because I've been editing them for days. I've saved multiple times and closed the program multiple times.

According to Company Town, the upcoming Tom Cruise flick, "Knight and Day" is expected to have less than stellar numbers at the box office. In order to make sure that does not happen, FOX issued sneak previews before the opening weekend. According to the article, Sneak Previews can be risky in the web 2.0 era.

Unless in the script it says "Cliche." It is probably best to avoid them. According moviecliches.com, many cliches go unnoticed but to make some of these easy to do cliches more real life focused, might just be the thing that makes your film just that much better. Take a look.
I have been doing a lot of research recently and I have been finding that color schemes are playing an increasingly more important role in films. "Max Payne", for instance, was a film that really took a step forward from its predecessor "300."
