This is a short I did for my final exam. Most Backgrounds are CGI and Greenscreen. I tried to do it as dark as possible to achieve that certain "oldskool-look" I had in my mind.
Again I was using Premiere, Cinema4D, SndSampler and AlamDV.
I hope you like it, I spent days in editing... smile))

This movie is awsome. Of the 50 movies i have voted on this is the second that i gave a 5 star rating. I think it was well thought up. The imagination of sollthar is flying over the clouds. I especially liked the scratches on the film. Did you do that with you fingernail? smile lol

Great movie.

Thanks a lot to you guys. I really appreciate the compliments and I'm really happy you like it!

did you get the real danny elfman, or was it a track he done for someone else.

the music worked well.
shame about the compression.
invisible was great, and good to see a story on here.

i gave it 1 vote...





just joking.

Sollthar,

I'm ashamed at having been in this community for over a year and just now getting to see this one. My God- that was awesome... I don't know what else to say. Probably one of the best period pieces in amatuer film making. Truly inspirational. You are no doubt THE GRANDMASTER ALAMDV FILM-MAKER. Seriously.

5, without a doubt.

OK- back to work now- Lightwave is calling my name...

Yeah, exactly. I reedited the Sleepy Hollow score.

Didn't have time to compose my own music back then unfortunately and didn't know someone to do it. sad

I have been wanting to watch this movie for sometime, and have now finally viewed. I really enjoyed it. I like alot of the first silent movies (The Golem, Nosferatu,etc. as well as my favourite silent star, Harold Lloyd). This was a cool homage and with the usual high standards of NCC combining well with Danny Elfmans score and, well, it was very cool!

I have been planning an 'old school' film for sometime and will be doing it after my current project. smile

Sollthar,

Excellent work! Since I normally waffle on for 3 or 4 pages, that's all I'll say biggrin


NoClue.

PS,
Out of interest, with the invisable scenes, you said you used a blank background plate and then edited your film frame by frame. There is one point where you are walking up the stairs and the camera pans with you. How did you get the pan exactly the same for both the background shot and the shot with you in it? or am I just being thick again? crazy

Thanks a lot for the comments! It's been a while since the last post on this topic. smile


That pan was used with the remaining material of the image. You know, I filmed 4:3 and cut a bit of the frame off on to give it a 16:9 look. So I have quite a bit of "unused" space that has still video information. That can be used for vertical pans and a bit of zooming.
