DVX short film made using a home-made 35mm adapter

I recently uploaded a 4min short on www.triggerstreet.com. It was shot using an original DVX and a home-made 35mm adapter.
The film is entitled, Life Against Memory. Check it out. Thanks!

James, First your work is excellent.I would like having the possibility of seeing a higher resolution version.
Just a comment.
Your character starts with a red tie and suddenly he has a black and white one.
Try to correct that in AE or Combustion and re-upload it.It is easy and will correct that silly discontinuity....
Hope this helps...

Checked it out - very short, but it gives the idea that you have a vision.

Bring the whole thing out.

Bye.

Re: DVX short film made using a home-made 35mm adapter

Can you post some technical details about how you made your adapter and maybe a couple snapshots of it? Thanks :-)

I was kind of late in the game geting feed back, I agree that the movie looks awesome, I think that the beginning is a little tedious and that it might go over better if it was either shortened, or some foley was added to the VO. (personally I would add the foley and keep everything teh same length. The last shot appeared to haeva little vinetting on it but that's being nit picky. Other wise really good, just add some wind blowing or footsteps, or cecada's or whatever they have that makes noise out in cornfields these days.

James and Team congratulations on a remarkable DV effort and a really great short film! I very much enjoyed this and have been further inspired to raise funds for my own DVcam and begin making a 35mm adapter!

So GREAT!

Thankyou.
