And now for something extremely retarded...

So a few years ago, I flew to Texas with a friend of mine to pick up another friend and drive back to VA. While we were there we were bored and filmed a stupid short with sword fighting in the backyard (total time of prep, filming, and editing: -1 hour). We called it "Lords of Sito" (Sito being his nickname, and the swords reminding us of Lord of the Rings)

We are doing the sequel, and I made a trailer for it. But since I shot it with the XH A1 I figured I'd post it for all to laugh at....

haha thanks Jason. Once I showed this to everyone who was there that day, they were crying laughing.

The song is from a movie called Requiem for a Dream, its called "Summer Overture" by Clint Mansell. I used the remix.

I use Final Cut Studio (Final Cut Pro).

On a side note the last shot I used, I didn't zoom with the camera. I did it in the editor. I'm very impressed with how much detail is kept when scaling HDV compared to DV!!
