This picture looks great but the quality of the pic seems to be of higher end than the camcorder is the pic from the camera or was it taken separate?

Looks cool. Though I've said this fifteen times today;

Don't use songs with lyrics in clips with people talking.. It's disturbing, no matter volume of the song.

Still, looking forward to watch this one smile

Great work on this. I understand this has taken months for you to create and you finally did it, was it worth it? By looking at this episode, yes.

The start had mediocore acting in it and the quality and grading wasn't to good. Somehow I noticed the quality became better near the end. I came to enjoy the adverts for a while but a bit of indication would have been nice, E.g. (fade out with portal logo in bottom corner).

The camerawork was quite good as well so well done on that and also well done on some of the VFX. Looking forward to see the rest, great work.

What is you guys budget. Cause some of that show is pretty good. I would only suggest more lighting, and some more work on the effects. but the grading for the most part it good so keep it up. I don't get why you give us 3 episodes in one day but oh well. and good music, it fits for the most part

It's only one episode, i just have to cut it into 3 because of limits. And our budget is what we can save up. Whatever money we get from DVD sales we are gonna put it into buyin a mic and some lights.

Thanks

Is it bad that the first thing I thought of here was a movie about the second best videogame ever, Portal?

Just out of curiosity, how many episodes are you planning on making? Also, I have a movie in the works called The Portal, which is entirely different from your stuff. Check it out when it's out!

The cinematography is decent. The editing is okay....



But the Sound quality problems were abysmal. Honestly, it ruined the episodes to the point that I couldn't watch them even 2 minutes without getting annoyed and turning it off.

Are you a big fan of Supernatural(the show) cause your show has some resemblance. I'm not saying that it's the same, but the editing, the songs, the opening titles, the "then" and "now" thing and the main characters reminds me of Dean and Sam. But the story is different though keep the good work.
