After another successful Ramboesque mission in the epic "hoosiers" saga, Hoosier One faces his most unique challenge yet - an attack from his own clones.

Awsome Quality of this! Excellent Camera work, In angle and movements! Really great actors and a great location! Although the effect didnt really fit in!

Great!

What camera did you use for this movie? Was it a DVX100? It loooked very nice and had almost a filmlike quality to it, IMO (Maybe it was the lighting, good camera work & acting).

Ok, I haven't seen this film yet, but I would like you know why you used the word "Hoosiers." I am a resident of Bloomington, Indiana which, if you're into NCAA basketball biggrin , will know is the home of the word "Hoosiers." heck, our University's team name is "The Hoosiers." razz So, are you from Indiana too, or is there some other reason?

-Just wondering,

That was really well made, great camera angles, a fantastic set, wonderful use of light in the tunnel (not sure if that was natural or cgi), and good acting. I also enjoyed the score, was it original?
One thing which i think you could do to improve the alam added effects is to light up the surrounding area, such as the person using the glow, and the ground around him in the colour of the effect, as without that it looked a little too composited (which is what alam does afterall). That should help make the effect look more like part of the scene in the dark areas.

another "awesome" from me biggrin

Although you can allways improve films - they're never just pefect.... The ALAMDV effects were good but you should have added lighting to go with them. I think someone above said this....
If you film a guy with a pistol who shoots and add a muzzle flash with alam dv... fine.. it looks "OK"... However, if you add a screen flash or burst of light it looks far far more natural. You should have done this in your film.. but to be honest I can't fault it in any other way biggrin

Thanks for the comments guys. The camera was a Sony PD150. Here is a cover story from a local newspaper magazine that gives a good background on the original episode and the "hoosiers" saga overall.

Not much that I can say that hasn't been said already smile. I think you did a great job using the effects at your disposal, and the lighting was phenomonal. I'm from Elkhart, Indiana so I'm happy to see a movie with the word 'Hoosier' in it also biggrin

The score is from Jerry Goldsmiths "13th Warrior", for those who want to know.

Just downloaded this. You edited a lot of nice looking shots out. I thought your loation and the way you used it was great, shame there is so little to see of that in this version. sad

Will you put the full version online too? With the rest of the shots?

Funny you should ask Marco, the main actor/martial artist asked the same thing. I had to create a three minute version for the Canon Digital Video Contest. Being an SFX web site, I thought you blokes would prefer to watch the condensed version, which does eliminate some cool shots and dialogue as well as the credits. The short version is also under 3mb for folks with dialup. My plan is to encode the full version (6 minutes w/credits) next week.

Sollthar what do you think of the SFX editing - lol?

Ah, alright, I understand. Having the full version too would be great. You surely made some fantastic shots in that and the longer dialogue gives it much more depth. Would be a shame to miss that. smile


Heh biggrin

I did actually add a bit surrounding light, maybe it should have been more.

Hey! That was a good little piece. Amazing location! Great lighting. Nice framing and composition. Truly enjoyable. And a mini plot to boot! What's not to like?

A few downsides: main actor's acting - very weak. The colonel is much better, more believable.

The FX - more work needs to go into compositing. That was the most amateur part of the production, besides the acting. Everything else looked professional!

Great work!

I dunno why people vote so low on this one. This is at least a 4!!!!

Cheers!

C.

Edit: When I watchd it, you had a below 4 rating. Seemms like the situation rectified itself! wink

Aight this is the first time i could watch it,. each time its been timed out. All i can say is that was amazing. the action was first standard. you had come real nice camera work going on. everything was i think planned and shot very well. The editing was class. aswell as the right location.

I must admit though. i didnt really feel the clone part fight. for me it started to take the serious side of things out of it. and got a little repeative. i guess because i see alot of fight scenes and so on, with clones on this site alot. it gets a little boring after awhile. But then saying that. you used the effects well. I cant wait to see the film. some real good stuff. keep it up!

I really enjoed this and would like to see the full product.

The problems that I had with it which were minimal was the power that the main character had. Now of course since we didn't see the whole thing there is more than likely a reason to that but I thought it kind of felt like that movie The Last Dragon. I was hoping for the main character and the clones to go at it.

That was the only problem. The location was great, the lighting was good also. The effects I thought you did well with. I understand what people are saying about lighting the individual to match the effects but still very good. Your sound was good.

Can't wait to see the whole thing. biggrin

Finally got to see this one and it was excellent from a production POV. I liked the lighting alot, the location was very nice, it just goes to show what a massive difference those two factors make. Nice!

This teaser has good camera work and locations. Hard to tell what it's really about, but that explored in the rest of the movie.

Fine acting from the Colonel(sp?), a solid performance, he will be missed.

Good acting and interesting effects.
Nice clone job too.
I'd be interested in seeing a sequel.
