5 Tips for Creating The Perfect Home Movie Room

home movie room

Movies are enjoyed all over the world. Movie theaters have been around for centuries providing us with the most amazing arts created in film. With this huge glamour of the outside movie theater many have thrived to create their own private movie room as well. By doing this they have found a way to create the same experience as they had before with the same experience they can find in their own home. Surprisingly, the top five factors to having a perfect movie room is reasonably able to accommodate.

Big Screen

Having a big perfect screen or perfect size TV screen one will be able to find refuge in knowing they are experiencing top quality visuals. Usually by going to a sales electronic store you can find the perfect TV for the perfect price. (we suggest a model with a curved screen) Not having a TV does not spell doomsday for a great movie room as the projector is the original form film was introduced. With the projector you can place you film on any vertical or horizontal surface. The magic works by the kens on the projector itself. Being able to widen to extreme measurement this way of watching movies should always be chosen over TV if space is limited and moving is very often.

Comfortable Furniture

Furniture is ideal in watching the perfect picture just as much as the television is in most cases. Keeping a soft and relaxing place to watch a film is vital to sensations during the film. The difference between a comfortable leather couch or recliner and a hard floor is obvious and should always try to be provided for guests. Some sofas come with cupholders already installed inside them. With the cupholders in place most people can just keep there cups next to them instead of possible being tipped over on the floor or table.

Snack Foods

Snacks are amazing especially when watching authors movies. Popcorn and soda pop being the number one selections usually for food while dining. By not going for these two number ones doesn’t make you necessarily wrong it just mean you don’t follow the traditional trend. Chocolate bars and other candies have also made going to the movies a great delight and the reason many cream a movie room in the first place. And some people prefer coffee or iced tea with their movies. Everything is OK when people are fed and some even believes it makes the movie better. Many concessions at movie theaters know this to be true. The fact is found in the sometimes outrageous prices at which they sell their products, yet people still buy them. So, save yourself a bundle of cash and get a home popcorn machine for those movie nights. If it’s a large one, it is recommended to keep it within the confines of your perfect movie room.

Get Alot of Movies

Having a great movie collection is amazing and should always be taken into consideration. When buying your movies make sure to mix up classics with new and current hits as well. This will keep movie watchers very excited about what’s about to play next. Keeping your DVD changer on random let’s the next film to play always be a surprise. This spontaneous selection of movies is the best way to enjoy your movie room.

Great Temperature and Space

Depending on the size of your usual movie watchers the size is very important to relativity of the TV screen and everything. Not having the big TV can be just as important as not having big enough room. A very small room can be seen as not having enough space to keep all the audiences in great viewing position. Having to look besides or over someone’s head is very uncomfortable and could lead to wanting to leave the movie altogether. A great size room is always recommended for the best movie experience.

Site Reboot – Version 2.0

After much neglect, this site is going to start being active one again. Though in the past the site focused on selling a screenplay in Hollywood, my interests have changed quite and bit and it’s actually not a goal that I am trying to achieve any longer. That being said, I am still very much interested in movies, television and the whole industry – just not really making an effort to get into it like I was once before.

Going forward, the posts on this site will look a little different. Well, first off, there will be new posts which is a major change since I have not really done anything with this site for, I dunno, what, maybe three years or so! Gosh, it has been a long ass time, hasn’t it?!

If I come across any script calls, I will still post them here for interested parties, but know that I am no longer actively seeking these sorts of things out. I am a bit more interested in indie films and making movies on your own, so do expect to see some new content geared towards that topic.

As this is just a hobby site for me, do not expect to see multiple updates in a single week. Sure, I may surprise you now and then and throw out a post or three during the same week, but this will not be the norm for the site. But since the site has been dead for so freaking long, it will probably look like a crazy high amount of posts if I just do something new each week, huh?

You will also start to see some talk about movies and tv shows that I enjoy because that is what makes me happy and it’s just what I want to write about. Don’t worry though, I will more than likely just be complaining about the poor quality of the writing on a show or movie….or maybe even praising the brilliance of something that I have just seen…although that is a bit rare for me these days.

And for those of you who have been around awhile – no, I never did sell that script. In fact, I do not even know where it is right now. I just got distracted by greener pastures and never really looked back. Who knows, maybe I will get back on it some day in the future. Until then, I hope that you enjoy the upcoming new content here on!

EOS Rebel T3i: Using A SLR To Film A Movie

updated with new questions, May 2014

A few years ago, I saw on Twitter that Edward Burns was filming a movie using a Canon SLR digital camera. He was using the Canon EOS 5D. Personally, I think the 5D is a bit expensive to use to film your own movie. Especially when you can get a digital SLR that is almost as good as the 5D for under $1,000 – the Canon EOS Rebel T3i.

Both cameras shoot in HD video. My question is thus, have any of you used a SLR digital camera to shoot your own movie? If so, how was the experience? Was the quality what you hoped for? If you have never used a SLR to film a movie – would you? Supposedly Burns filmed an entire feature with all Canon 5Ds recently. Certainly makes movie making more accessible to all of us.

More on the EOS Rebel T3i can be found at: Canon EOS Rebel T3i .

And more importantly, how do you get really great audio for your movie when you are using a camera like this to film your movie? Do you need a really expensive audio recording studio setup? Or can you do a low budget home recording studio type of audio thing like was mentioned on this site here and still get great audio quality at the end of the day? I mean, how many people have watched a movie that could have been great but suffered from really terrible audio? So, it is important to not overlook just how important it is for an indie movie maker to focus on getting high quality sound for the movie.
