My entry for the Heinz Top This TV challenge
 
This is my entry for the Heinz ketchup commercial contest.
Shot it with the XHA1 in 24f and downconverted in camera to Avid.

Hah, I remember watching this before I filmed mine. It's funny. What file did you use to upload it to youtube. It's good quality.

Scott Saracen August 4th, 2007 08:40 AM

Thanks.
I ended up choosing a large Flash .flv file encoded in Sorenson Squeeze.
To be honest I wasn't that crazy about the quality it produced in You Tube compared to some others.

I forgot to mention that I used the vividrgb setting.
(I'm wondering if we should all start paying royalties to Stephen for this?;)
It's a fantastic custom preset, thank you so much Stephen.

I think the quality's pretty good for youtube. And I'm actually surprised that you used VividRGB. Maybe it's just me, but in most movies that use that preset it always seems like everyone has a red tint to them. I don't know, I don't like it. But you're didn't seem to have that for some reason. Maybe it was good lighting, I dunno. I used the Cine Video preset that came on the camera. I just wanted the film look for TV and I just tried that since it's basically the title of the preset. lol.

Looks awesome... Very well done..

I haven't really tried the VIVIDRGB preset indoors... I have only use it outdoors... Looks like I'll be exploring...

This is the best entry I've seen so far. Nice!

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. It was a lot of fun. My wife and I actually made the table out of old set pieces, painted them and then had the pleasure of watching it get sawed in half.

Nathan Quattrini August 5th, 2007 09:46 PM

Nice..where did you film it? Looks like a museum. I live in Warwick..small world eh?

Scott Saracen August 6th, 2007 05:39 AM

Hi Nathan,
Definitely a small world! I mean it's Rhode Island...we are probably related;)jk
I used an open studio space for it. (That was the only way we could fit a table that large and still have room to shoot).

Scott,

Great job! I like the concept, acting is on key and the cinematography was excellent.

Check mine out, too!

:D
