It was ok.

I liked the grading, that helped it look really good. The soundtrack was aaaaalll screwed up, to the point where it was annoying. The action was good, the shot following the person in the woods wasnt to shaky. It was confusing though. I didnt get it smile

Good Mini, theres potential,
Tim

Nice work. Strange concept, but executed well. As everyone else has stated, excellent grading.

I loved the soundtrack, but I'm a sucker for power/prog metal, so that could be just me.

My main problem with this would have to be the chase sequence. It looked like you slowed it down some, but kept the same frame rate from the original speed, resulting in a choppy image.

What the... I'm confused.

Although the grading is nice and the music would be good if the quality of it wasn't utter poo. smile

So uh.... I think this deserves a 3 because I'm really not sure what it's supposed to be.

Aculag,
He shot that with a Panasonic GS-400. I bought one a few months ago, and I agree that it produces some nice filmic looking 16:9 images. Here's a short clip I shot this winter. No FX, just a camera test.

and a close-up test

Freaky,
Sorry to use your space to pump the GS-400. I enjoyed your short. Was he dreaming all of that? Hmm?

Those are great looking clips. For a while, I had thought that I would stick to Canon's for my moviemaking needs, but after seeing a lot of panasonic stuff, my mind has changed. My next camera will be a Panasonic for sure.

End of taking up space in this thread.

Um so I didn't really get it at all. It was kind of weird, but I agree with Aculag it did look good.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Yes I used a Panasonic NV-GS400. It works very well.

I worked alot to get the right look that I wanted. So it feels good that the work wasn't to wast smile

Yea, the quality of the soundtrack is not top, but thats because it's recorded in my basement studio and it hasn't the absolute best stuff. But I love the music, maybe because I like heavy things.

You say you didn't get it?
That's good. Cuz that's more or less the point, to not actualy get the hole thing, it's gonna be a little bit wierd. The audience must think little by themself what actualy happend, did he die? did he dream? was the hunt real? did julius ceasar miss he's apointment at the dentist?...uhmm, maybe not the last one but...
It's wierd, it's gonnna be wierd, not understandable.

LMAO! I didn't get it until you explained, but NOW I understand!
The room he was sitting in was really the inside of a Dragon's mouth!!!!

Great work! You might want to invest in a track, because some of the shots could have been a little smoother in the kitchen/dragon. Good look for the whole thing.

But as a tree-hugger, I must say your blatant "tree-kicking" was like a dagger in my wooden heart. Damn you. Damn you to hell.

(I'm kidding. I like to see trees get abused. I was once bitten by a tree at an early age, and harbour resent and disdain towards all coniferous varities.)

Well i can say that I didn't really like this that much. I can agree that the images did look very nice, but the camera work was a little bit choppy. Some adivce for the tracking woods shot.....I don't know if you were filming on the road, but if you can find some one with a truck, put the camera on the tripod and place it in the bed of the truck and have them drive along....it works out very nicely. Work on storyline, write something out, make it a little longer, and i think you'll have something nice.

Good luck

I don't get it. If I don't get the answer, I really won't mind. The shaky camera thing looks fine. Not every shot needs to be perfectly stable. In fact, for something like a chase, I think a shaky camera adds a more intensity to the chase rather than some smooth side scroling shot.

Yes, but when you have a shot of someone sitting at a kitchen table, and it's TRYING to be smooth, shaky cameras will ruin the suspension of diebelief and take the viewer out of the story.

Wow. Sure do look at every little detail in these clips. I honestly ddin't even notice any camera shakiness for the table scenes. When I was watching it, I was wonderinghow he kept the camera so still.

Looked nice and was a fun wee film.

Although I felt that the shot in the woods, was a bit too fast to see properly, in fact I missed it. I only saw it when I paused it during a re-run..smile
