To me the camera work looked pretty good and the music choice really helped set the mood.

For a first work that you submitted for judging and review I think you guys did good. The visuals worked, continuity and flow (which is really hard to make work in a 3 minute limit) went smoothly.

Audio was mentioned by others, all I'll try to do is offer tips. If you're stuck with the onboard built in mic or are doing a voiceover try to boost the voice level in your editor. Don't know what you have available but some editors allow you to boost or reduce the audio track to some extent as needed. I assume you music track is separate and although you didn't have a music level problem here be aware that in future projects you want to insure your music does not overpower your other audio.

Keep with it and I'll bet we see you guys come up with better and better stuff. I'm 68 now and would sure like to be able to go back to your age with the gear and opportunity we have now.

Live it to the hilt, guys!

SoÖare there any LARPers who arenít delusional to one degree or another? (I'm kidding, of course!) :)

That was lots of fun, Gabriel. Next time youíll have that audio monster slain, and Iíll be able to laugh at lines like, ďIt was just us swinging our PVC sabers around in the street like the dorks we are.Ē LOL!!!

I really liked the idea of this one. I'm kind of a geek, not into larping but I definitely know that us engineer types can really get into big 'debates' on accurate details...

It was cool that you included this 'geek accuracy' as I'll call it in the memory section, I've found that to be true in my life!!!

Haha,

Very fun

Attempting to add lightsaber effects is why compromises in the audio were made. I had been working on adding the lightsaber effects when I did the math and realized that it would have been impossible for me to finish the effects in enough time for the contest. But even with that realization we were quite pressed for time, and scrapping the lightsaber effects, we still had to rush the overall project.

Lol, thanks! We started to ad the lightsaber effects, but then Kenneth did the math and found out that it would take 8 hours to do it. and we only had 6. and it took about 2 hours to get a "good" version of the video that could get downloaded without waiting forever. So yeah, maybe some time we will go back over and do that...

Thanks for the comments!

Keep up the good work guys, then you guys can be the Yeager Bros. :P
Check out videocopilot.net if you haven't already...amongst the multitude of after effects tutorials there are some light saber tutorial videos that might intrigue you.

That was fun and for those of us out there that are real freaking old, we remember D&D and sitting up till about 3am rolling 20 sided dice. Been a long time since those days but I remember them.

Looks like you did have fun and you are learning. If you want to do this film and video thing for long, you'll notice you get much better really fast because of these little challenges. The fantastic prizes are a great bonus but we would probably all be here anyway, practicing and learning how to do all this better.

Keep at it guys. You have a good start.
