FREE Screening of HD100 originated film March 29 at Hollywood HD Fest

I received an email reminder from director Jonathan Robbins about a screening this weekend in Hollywood of the first short film I shot with the HD100. He wanted me to pass on the info of the FREE screening to interested dvinfo members.

The film has also apparently been nominated as "Best in Genre" at the festival.

The film is about a desperate girl who falls into a pickpocketing partnership only to find that it is a bigger operation than she knew and she's tired of being used.

Your Ex-Lover is Dead has screened in Toronto at the Thor East Film Fest, and the Wildsound Short Film Festival, and will screen in June at the ReelHeART International Film Festival.

It's U.S. premiere will be part of the International Digital Video (and High Definition) Festival. The screenings are held at the Fairfax Theatre in West Hollywood (Beverly and Fairfax) and are FREE on a first-come, first-seated basis. Preceeding the film is the feature OTIS, starring Kevin Pollack, Illeana Douglas and Daniel Stern which begins at 6:30. Following Your Ex-Lover is Dead will be 2 more short films and then a Q&A.

I hope to meet some of you at the festival! If you'd like to view a trailer of the film, you can do so at

Unfortunately I won't be able to make the screening, but I know there will be some technical questions regarding the film so I'll try to tell you a few details as I remember them.
We used a total of three HD100U cameras (non-A), shot 720p24 on ProHD tape and used a m2t-to-Quicktime AIC post workflow via FCP5. (Post occurred before FCP was able to capture 720p24.) I "think" I had the 13x3.5mm Fuji wide lens in the arsenal when I shot this film, but I could be wrong. I know that we definitely employed the stock 16x5.5mm lens on our B-Camera and sometimes the C camera.

Jonathan did the color-correction on his own with FCP's built-in 3-way. There are a couple of scenes that were intentionally shot day-for-night in-camera and some that were turned into day-for-night as an afterthought. I have some still shots in a thread somewhere with the technique described.

Some of you may remember the night-for-night tests I shot for this film with available street light. Some of those tests have made it into the final film.
