Humm, right... A whole short keyed.. and not that great keying...
You could have taken a fan to make his hear blow alittlebit, would have made it more realtistic! The angles wasn't the best.. You can work some of the sound.. and the end was to short...
I get the point of it all tho! smile

it had to be 30 seconds long. no more, no less for the contest i was entering. we had a huge fan, but his hair was too short, and gelled, so it wouldnt blow in the wind. this was shot and edited in a couple of hours. once again, our first video.

That won awards. Im sure... confused Saying stuff like that doesnt help the ratings

I didnt like that. Bad keying, you could have made the shots more realistic with fans and stuff, and it wasnt my cup of tea I guess. I like Matrix ReTarted, whcih you subliminaly put in as high quality wink. I guess thats why you call it Dont FallFor It heh.

i actually did win awards for it. i entered it in a local film festival and won under the 'public service announcement' catagory. personally, i dont like this clip. im not very proud of it, but i decided to post it on here to see if anyone actually liked it, or had suggestions.

Hmm, when the guy is falling, he looks oddly animated. maybe if you made him straighter falling..

Big sigh ...

What's to comment on? Teenager falls off roof and any potential sense of reality is shot by the sheer fakeness of the compositing.

Better quality than Matrix Retarded, but still ... nothing to it. Award winning? Really? You seem really keen to convince us all that you're the bees knees and I look forward to seeing you award yourself another 5.

I'm immune to embarrasment, but, you're quite right. It was a presumption on my part and I apologise.

Well I thought it was the comedy hit of the year with your satire on how lame many of these public service notifications are. I was cracking up when I saw the jumper's face on the close up. I like the idea that by jumping off a building, you either turn retarded or get the feeling that you are taking the world's greatest crap. I was crying laughing.

Well, I am glad that someone made a comedy satire of lame announcements. "Life is a Gift, not a choice." That was great. Too funny!
