Didn't really want to be on google. I dunno. Anyway.

"Microsoft's failure to patch a critical security bug in Windows 98 coupled with their July 11, 2006 decision to no longer support the operating system means Celtx can no longer issue new releases for Win98 users." - From the celtx website.

Windows 98 users can download the Celtx 0.98:
http://www.celtx.com/download-win98.html

Not sure if that will work. If nothing else you can uninstall it. It's not a waste if you can remove it. Waste of time, yes, space, no.

We're on google.
We are the third link on "contacting the donnas". Amongst other search results, I'm sure. Just thought I'd post this.
Oh, I downloaded Celtx, had enough room for it, etc, but it just plainly won't open. So.. yeah. There goes a good __MB of space wasted. Any help here Jake?

I guess you found out Jim.

I'm British.

Sorry Jim, you found out. by cmptrgy412cmptrgy412, 18 Jul 2007 04:08

Totally irrelevant, but Ian Scott, knowing Nathan, came from Scott Ian the guitarist to Anthrax whos now all over VH1. Just thought it was funny…

Funny thing I noticed by drummerdude767drummerdude767, 12 Jul 2007 01:38

Bands on Independent labels, for example Fat Wreck Chords, may not even care that we use their stuff, some of the smaller companies probably don't even have laywers…

One more thing... by drummerdude767drummerdude767, 11 Jul 2007 21:45

Hey, I haven't been on here in a while, but I apparently had the same idea you guys did, use local bands. Like I said in an earlier post, not to seem like I have an ego or anything like that, but I do hold some connections to local bands. I know a lot of good local bands that would be totally willing to let us use their music in a movie. (once again from an earlier post) I got Benedict Arnold's (local band) CD and the stuff on there is reallllly good, I think it would either be good for an opening title sequence, or some kind of chase scene. I don't know if this is what you're going for here but for conversion disorder or maybe even time warp western theres a really cool song called "End of the World" its punk but good. But anyways point is that we could actually ask them in person as opposed to you know going through all that crazy stuff pointed out above. So give it some thought and if you contact me about getting a copy of some local CD's or local bands in generall until I get ungrounded (weekend i think 7/14) you guys can call me.

Local Bands by drummerdude767drummerdude767, 11 Jul 2007 21:21

As a member of this movie/crew and the whole movie being about a band, this movie is going to have to have a great soundtrack, now I haven't been up to date on the whole copywrite thing right now, but an idea I've had is to use local bands. Not to sound like I have an ego or anything, but I do kinda have some connections and know a lot of really good bands that would be totally willing to let us use their stuff in a movie. Even we could do some recordings, granted they are actually good songs. Just for example, about 4 days ago I got Benedict Arnolds new CD and most of the stuff on there is like super good, and they would totally let us use a song, I mean we can even ask them in person, unlike some of the other bands we wanted to use. So I don't know, think about it. And Jim, I really want to work on the soundtrack for this, so we can at least tell Rufkahr I did something… you know… because you wrote the… script…

War Movie, Time Warp, and I'm getting the band back together are all Code Names/Temporary Names. (Conversion Disorder is, as far as I am concerned, the real name of our movie)
I know that the movie will not remain as War Movie, it sounds like one of those stupid parody movies. Scary Movie, Epic Movie, Love Movie, etc.

I think Pat's is the only one that may need green screening. I loaded the program. It's a little bit buggy thus making the company live up to their name: Debugmode. I'll have to ask Patrick if he's green screening or not, though.

I found an Instructables page on an easy and FREE way to add green screen (chroma keying) to videos…

It uses a program called Wax which looks like it may have some other effects as well…

Someone should download this and check it out… :)

… green screen construction tutorial here

I have decided to go for a wes anderson feel…also, i believe that their rival band will contain their high school teacher that randy hates… also also, randy will now make his caree cahnge from photography to indian anthropology during the movie

This was a much better reply than expected. I'll let you all read it.

Neither the copyright law nor the copyright regulations gives a specific length of time, number of notes or number of measures that can be used lawfully without the permission of the copyright owner. It is possible that such a use may constitute a "fair use" of the music, but that is based on a number of different factors. Further information follows:

FAIR USE

One of the rights accorded to the owner of copyright is the right to reproduce or to authorize others to reproduce the work in copies or phonorecords. This right is subject to certain limitations found in sections 107 through 122 of the copyright act (title 17, U.S. Code). One of the more important limitations is the doctrine of "fair use." Although fair use was not mentioned in the previous copyright law, the doctrine has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the years. This doctrine has been codified in section 107 of the copyright law.

Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered "fair," such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair:

(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

The distinction between "fair use" and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission. Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission.

The 1961 Report of the Register of Copyrights on the General Revision of the U.S. Copyright Law cites examples of activities that courts have regarded as fair use: "quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author's observations; use in a parody of some of the content of the work parodied; summary of an address or article, with brief quotations, in a news report; reproduction by a library of a portion of a work to replace part
of a damaged copy; reproduction by a teacher or student of a small part of a work to illustrate a lesson; reproduction of a work in legislative or judicial proceedings or reports; incidental and fortuitous reproduction, in a newsreel or broadcast, of a work located in the scene of an event being reported."

Copyright protects the particular way an author has expressed himself; it does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in the work.

The safest course is always to get permission from the copyright owner before using copyrighted material. The Copyright Office cannot give this permission. When it is impracticable to obtain permission, use of copyrighted material should be avoided unless the doctrine of "fair use" would clearly apply to the situation. The Copyright Office can neither determine if a certain use may be considered "fair" nor advise on possible copyright violations. If there is any doubt, it is advisable to consult an attorney.

RE: Character by J R HarterJ R Harter, 29 Jun 2007 17:00

This is more directed at Nathan, but I would like to know if we are going to hold auditions or if your going to just assign the parts to people let me know.
