Hey Joe, isn't this the first person who noticed we had no light to work with?

I agree 100% with you Chris, but unfortunately we were restricted to whatever light we could bounce onto the subject due to various conditions. Oh well.

Yeah. Gotta get me some lights, man! Chris, did you download one of the MPEG versions? The Quicktimes were artificially brightened a bit so you could see things better, but the MPEGs were not. The DV version was not brightened, either.

Interesting..., although I don't agree with the premise, but I'll get to that later.

Sounds like your looking to start an on-line community of video makers that influence each other through their work. Its a nice thought, I know I've dreamed of something similar (not an on-line community, but a small group of people who work together on projects and influence each other...) I've had to conclude through my own efforts that what I wanted wasn't really possible. However, I believe the on-line community you propose is quite possible. It would only take a few people who were dedicated to it to make it work, and you have a much larger pool of candidates on the internet. Let us know when your ready and lets see if there is anybody out there.

Back to your original premise that, "the BEST thing any of us can do to better ourselves as "film" makers is to watch other people's productions and learn from them." I firmly disagree with this point (yes, it does have value not to mention other benefits, don't misunderstand). Other activities will increase the value and quality of our films far more. Such as looking to the other arts for inspiration and exploring uncharted (in the film sense) areas of human endeavor.

Joe and Brad,

So which one of you guys had the task of rewinding that tangled mess of film? Bet that cost one of you a few beers to convince the other one to do it.

No one repaired that mess of film. It went straight to the garbage dumpster. Thank goodness for old reject reels that are never picked up by the depot!

Joe, I'm doing this from memory...I'm downloading a copy of the clip again but it's taking awhile...anyway, wanted to ask you a question on the finger pointing thing (when you point directly into the camera). Is that a fisheye lens...what types of lens' did you use during the filming?

That was nothing more than the XL1 with it's optional wide angle lens set at maximum. The camera was moved closer to Joe to obtain the exaggerated effect and framing.

Cool. Good thing to know. I haven't had much experience with that. So pretty much that's what would happen with a Wide Angle Adapter as well. Just have the camera close up.
