As long as the title isn't 'Mangina' you're golden.

Dustin R. Rogan
06-02-2011, 03:52 PM
That was actually in the running for the Title :D but we thought that might be too harsh for some folks

Rogan

for those who are reading and keeping up...first scene shot edited and such... now we wait till June 25th to film the rest of this

Rogan

Chris Messineo
06-06-2011, 02:06 PM
It has been a little quiet. I blame the lack of Fat Monster. Hopefully, as we get closer to the deadline it will pick up.

Congrats on getting the first scene shot and edited - best of luck with the rest.

Dustin R. Rogan
06-06-2011, 08:27 PM

HELLS MUTHA FRICKIN YEAH!

UPDATE:
less than 24 hours till shooting and I thought I'd go ahead and announce the title of this film....(drum roll please)

THE DUSTIN ROGAN PROJECT 2

This should be interesting, half of the film is being shot here in Waco and the other half will be shot in New York.

I added everyone as of now that will be or has been involved with this film and what they are doing. I'm pumped and hope this one is 1000 times better than the first one. Anyways, heres to a smooth shoot tomorrow both here and in NY

Rogan

Chris Messineo
06-24-2011, 04:06 PM
Very cool!

Are you coming to New York to shoot?

Dustin R. Rogan
06-24-2011, 04:11 PM
No Jason Spinos-Johnson and Rodney Smith are taking care of that for me

Rogan

Dustin R. Rogan
06-26-2011, 04:56 AM
Well not sure how to approach how yesterday went...

Did it go the way I had planned? NO. Had a main actor bail on me and had to just go with the flow and give his lines and make the story go a slightly different direction...well not so much a different direction but a different vehicle to get to the destination.

I hadn't slept yesterday b/c we were to start at 8AM, everyone didn't show up till 9:30AM...so I was getting frustrated, b/c I knew I had said actor till 11AM then to find out said actor now needed to leave at 10:30AM now...So we start shooting and finally ready for the actor and he said I gotta go...well bottom line we got the film (Waco part) shot, not the exact way I had planned. But we got something at least. I started editing what I did have, and there might be a few laughs...wish I had more time to go back and use said actor before, but just seems too busy to shoot with us :(

Heres hoping NY crew gets too shooting soon

anyways BTS coming soon on front page

Rogan

PS I am sunburnt

Chris Messineo
06-26-2011, 07:09 AM
It's never easy is it? But, I'm glad to hear you persevered.

I'm looking forward to the BTS.

Hawk Teflon
06-26-2011, 08:09 AM
Man that sucks. Looks like we both would have our required element had this been BailFest. Glad you were able to get it shot!

taylormade
06-26-2011, 08:11 AM
Wow! Did you use another actor or rewrite the script on the spot? As Chris said, it's never easy.

Dustin R. Rogan
06-26-2011, 03:12 PM
Wow! Did you use another actor or rewrite the script on the spot? As Chris said, it's never easy.

a little of both, rewrote part of it to fit, and basically ended up where i wanted to just through a different character...make sense lol?

Rogan

Dustin R. Rogan
06-27-2011, 01:44 PM
added just a couple of BTS shots, more to come (this weekend I believe)

Where is the BTS? I get "removed by the user"?

Yesterday I got called into the GM's office at work, and to sum it up, I had to remove the reporter that was in my movie/BTS...so I removed the BTS to put up a later copy that didn't have him in it. It'll be up later tonight or tomorrow...sorry MAH, soon sir very soon :D

GM didn't like the fact that at the beginning of the BTS one of my guys dropped the "F Bomb" and then he shows up...and basically said I am refraining from firing you, Dustin you know better, just think next time and I don't want the reporter anywhere near this! so i removed him luckily he was just at the beginning of the film and it actually got my file size down from 50.1MB to 48MB so lol thanks to him I got it under the required file size! :D And i kept my job!

Rogan

ASchear
07-06-2011, 02:18 PM
Wait, is the file size limit 50 MB? I've been under the impression it's 100 MB and couldn't find anything in the rules thread.

Hawk Teflon
07-06-2011, 02:19 PM
Yeah man, unless I'm wrong they upped the file size a few fests ago. It's 100 now. I have no idea how I'd get mine down to 50.

SPOILER REVIEW:

I have to say that I felt like there were a lot of inside jokes in this that I didn't fully understand. I got some of them from watching the first TDRP, but for those that haven't seen that this will probably confuse them quite a bit. And since this is a stand alone entry, I should imagine some of the first timers will be scratching their heads. I do have to say, though, that your audio has come a long way. SO much better. AND for working with a 2nd until hundreds of miles away, you did a great job.

SPOILER ALERT:

ROOOOOOOGGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAANNNNNNN! This was hilarious!! Good job and very creative not to take yourself too serious and Jason did a great, great job! Things to fix would be the audio. Sometimes the audio was clean like it was done with a boom mic and then other times it sounded like the on-camera mic, especially in the bathroom scene. The other thing that was distracting was the shot of Jason on the bench in the beginning. The shot of him from the side - he kept kind of going out of frame on it. Other than that, this was very entertaining and made me laugh and smile.

This was really funny, typical Rogan. Great use of NYC and all the scenes and vignettes at different locations, pretty epic actually. I gotta watch it again to really figure out what the hell is going on. lol. but i thought it was a blast.

This was fun to watch. Def a film for the insiders.

There were sections of audio that I could not hear without turning the volume right up so that could do with a bit of post levelling.
And the shots in the park had too much ear in them. Peoples ears should not be center screen :)
The variations in the camera and finish were also a bit distracting.

Def fun to watch, well done.

Not really my kind of film and i think there were inside jokes that i just didn't get. I still found myself wanting to see what would happen in the end, but (to me) there didn't really seem to be one.

Sorry, but this seemed self-indulgent to the extreme. After wading through the entire film for the ending – there wasn’t one. The poor sound and color grading along with the choppy editing made this tough to watch.
It’s not easy to pull together a two location shoot like this in a short time period. Kudos for giving it a try.

Thanks for the compliment Marlon! I just wanted to say that I'm not sure what happened, but somehow in using the footage I sent him, Dustin lost some of the sides of the frame. In Rodney's original framing of me in that close up, my face was completely on screen, as opposed to going out of frame.

I notice that most of the people who "don't get it" or "self indulgent" are noobies to the forum...and werent here for the spirit of the first one. Where it was about us making a film. Thats ok, say your piece ye film experts of DVXuser

this "mysterious ending" that no one gets...Jason hacked into dvxuser, and corrupted the download (aka the static and error message) to try and stop me...whats not to get?...man i miss all the old school people who'd get this....i think. Yes i have audio issues...don't very good at fixing audio, color grading...eh i'm trying but thanks for watching.

I think its actually kinda funny people ripe me a new one with 4-5 lines of what i did wrong and try to sweeten it by saying "oh you tried at least....kudos" HAHAHA

I haven't read others comments but I think this movie is pretty funny. I laugh out loud just when the damn title comes on with the music, it's just funny.
It did take me a few views to understand it all because i think some of your dialogue gets lost in the music or whatever, and that's what made me not initially "get it".

Your villain is over the top excellent and all the self referential "Rogan" stuff is hilarious, you immortalized yourself here.

You do have some inside jokes (Beans, your WestFest entry for example), but overall you remind me of Kevin Smith in your humor and dialogue. And that's a compliment.

Matt Harris
07-10-2011, 02:48 PM
oh that's Jason the who as the villain, i knew i knew that face! Dude you did a great job!

Well... I've been around long enough to get the jokes (I don't know if that's a good thing?), so it works for me!:)
Enjoyed the film and as we all know, robot's don't wear pants & I'm REALLY glad you kept yours on this time.
Is it much better then part I? Yes...yes it is.
Were there technical faux pas? Sure, but who cares... this was a fun film.

Jason did a great job as did you and the rest of the cast & crew. Can't wait for Part III!:beer:

I know you guys have way too much experience for that. It made me think at first that you had to film yourself and had just set it up on a tripod and I know how tough that can be. Anyway, again, great job. Rogan, I did get the ending just fine. I think for people that know you guys this was super-funny, but some of the funny jokes others might not see as much. Your films are always entertaining so keep 'em coming.

I hesitate to respond to this but I'd like to make a couple of points. I've been a DVXUser member since 2003. I'm sorry that I didn't join in on your unique status here or become part of the Justin Rogan fan club. I didn't know it was a requirement to comment on the films. After reading your thread, I took the time to watch your first film before watching part two. I didn't care for it, but then I'm one of the few that thought "Dumb and Dumber" sucked. You have over 2000 views on this thread, far more than anyone else and the most pages of comments - and everyone but two thought your film was hilarious. That means well over ninety percent of the folks here thought it was great. I'd think you'd be overjoyed by the reaction, but you seemed to be pissed that TWO of us didn't go into convulsions of laughter.

I assumed people were looking for honest criticism. All the films have been receiving it and the filmmakers seem to be responding with measured and thoughful responses. Some films work for people and some don't and I notice that a film one person thinks is terrific meets with a more negative response from someone else.

I meant it when I said trying a two location shoot was a tough setup and that you had the guts to gave it a shot. Sorry you find that an insult rather than a compliment. I never claimed to be an expert, just another viewer commenting honestly on what I saw. Trying to improve on technical issues is fine, but pointing them out is part of the review process. I've received comments on my film that didn't exactly warm my heart, but it's interesting to see people's reactions and it's part of the learning process.

I too hesitate to respond to you....
a few points...

The name is Dustin Rogan...not Justin

And it was the spirit of the film from the first one the whole 3-4 months of the build up and then the appreciation that the first one had, these days seems that Dvxuser fest are a ghost town compared to previous.

So you don't like tongue in cheek funny...your opinion, of which you're entitled to sir. Am I pissed, not at all. Glad the hand full of people (compared to last TDRP) loved it. Was this film made for DVXuser? and wouldn't stand alone outside the site? yes.

Sir I simply wanted to relive the spirit of the last one


If you have time go back to the original thread and you might...might see what I was talking about

AS soon as it started... it was over. When does the extended cut come in? I liked all the inside jokes.

This was a lot of fun.

It reminded me of the early Fests, when there were so many more films and many of those films were made in this same style. It wasn't just about the craft of filmmaking, it was about having fun shooting and entertaining the other members of DVXuser. I could create a list of technical things that aren't perfect here, but I don't think that's the point.

I love all the inside jokes here. I love the energy of it. I wish there was more of that spirit in the Fest.

Thank you for getting what I was doing! Technically wise was very lacking yes. But like the first it was spirit i was shooting for

You are one crazy, dude! :)

Enjoyed all the inside jokes and loved Jason's performance. Especially when he went on about what he was remembered for. I LOL'd at that.
Really good stuff. I can understand why some people didn't get it, don't beat yourself up over it.

This was a lot of fun. Good job on getting another one in.
I would have complained about the technical stuff but I see that's all been covered and I also know that in a way that's what this entry is all about.

Cheers!

I broke my DVXuser cherry on TimeFest so I remember the first one and Beans. Some of the jokes I got. Was hoping for a$$ cheek...disappointing. This was fun. Only gripe is I cringe when people use lines that are part of pop culture. (My Name is Earl - "...hand on snakey") Kills me as a writer and comes off as lazy and unoriginal. But this was a sorta a mockumentary and we like to quote movie and TV. Also, kudos for coordinating a collaboration across the country again.

That location looks great. Turning up the contrast and saturation makes the corn background look amazing. Haven't had a chance to see the film yet. Will check it out soon.

OK so when I heard you were submitting I bowed out for fear of my ultimate destruction. I was sure we would see the return of Rogan's ass. To my dismay no ASS. I kept hoping that you would travel back in time and kill Jason or something. Of course I can only say that us oldtimmers are indead your target audiance and I wish I could have pulled one off for this fest. I am hoping i get the band back together and kick some ass next fest. Loved it man.

First of all a Big congrats to the finalist, well deserved!

If I may explain, if it wasn't clear about my movie...the "random corn field" shot was my dream of making a film and in kinda a way my inner self being chased down by the masked man...aka foreshadowing... Jason masked man...me the fat guy running through the cornfield...the dead vegetation represents the "quality" that Jason's character thinks of my characters work...Fun times looking forward to the next fest.

I did laugh and it was with you not at you so, you win. Unconventional, but it was better than a sharp stick in the eye. Points for a dope BTTF shirt and an original concept.
