About Me:
I have been coming to this site since it was called cinescape and subscribed to the magazine of the same name. I have been into scifi/fantasy ever since I saw Aliens and then Terminator 2 as a kid. I saw Terminator 2 when I was in the 3rd grade and it changed my life. I knew then I wanted to work in film. Recently I went back to school and got a degree in computer graphics and 3d animation and am learning that you can create some unique worlds right from the comfort of your mac and PC. I'm hoping to have a youtube channel within the year and once I get that up and running I will update my profile with the info so you guys/gals can check out my stuff.

Hey Shac...

Alrighty you don't understand what the 50% level means to Exhibitors. It's the point at which a exhibitor or movie house is taking in roughly half of the cost of paid admissions. In other words it is no longer costing them money to show a movie. I could tell you haow this works into the bidding and play/screen agreements, but that's for another thread. This can be good or bad depending on how many people are actually still attending scheduled screening. Typically in the US it works out to be something like this:

1st Week = 5% to 10%

2nd Week = 10% to 15%

3rd Week  = 15% to 20%

4th Week = 20% to 30%

5th Week and beyond 40% to 75 %

Of course any of those numbers can be higher or lower depending on agreements (Not sure about IMAX)

Avatar is awful. Abosutlely none of my friends said that they really enjoyed it. I would have to agree, it was just about some of the worst storytelling and weak acting I've ever seen or heard.... Well maybe not as bad as The Phantom Menace. All my friends and I agreed that the CGA, all gussied up with modern 3D techniques made for a great day to be at the movies.

As the comment I mad implied; I am worried that film makers may start making more of the same with more time and talent devoted to the craft rather and less time on the art of storytelling.

I can think of many films that used groundbreaking techniques and had insane amounts of media hype, but still crashed and burned or did not perform as well as expected or as a prvious attempt had. As I clearly said: "You can't argue with success".

 Shac my email away! i love blender its the only thing i have ever used. I was going to start a cgi business a year and a half ago. but my terabyte drive died with 1/2 a terabyte of models in it...rrrrr... so I got discouraged and a few mo. ago I decided to start over and download 2.62 version and its completely diff..  lol So I am learning all over again...I would enjoy a blender buddy if you will to keep me honest and focused if that makes sense?

I do not have any family above me and I always wanted to leave my kids with stories about my dads family which they never got to meet! A animated family history told in the bizarre morbid sense of humor only us Hookers share! lol :).....and I have some other stories I wish to tell! I hope you had a good day, I tried to get on but kept losing my messages today and I got frustrated so gave up! yall were funny and wish I could have participated! 

Hooker out!

Enjoy your day my friend!
