Thanks Paolo!

You have to know that because of TC3 somehow i think of you as a distant member of the crew. Even if it wasn't 100% it, for sure you were a strong influence.

Thanks again!

Agreed, an excellent and effective piece! Shows what you can do with very little and a lot of creativity.

The look is fabulous, and except for one shot I wasn't at all sure that the clothes were done in post (wasn't looking for it, though).

Keep it up, and keep tellling us about it.

Any of it shot in mid day sunlight? It's just looks so soft and forgivingly filmic--almost like it was shot late afternoon.

Miltos,

Damn, that's a nice piece of film-making, regardless of budget.

Thanks for sharing it.

We started shooting around 11:00 and we finished around 18:00 because outside that time-window there was a neighbour building casting it's shadow on our roof.

You might say that those are the worst hours for everyone to shoot exteriors but we were carefull with our angles and very carefull with how we used reflected sunlight.

Also, having a storyboard helped a lot to better plan our shooting program and take better advantage of the sun's angle.

Thanks Jon,

TV would be great but i can't hope for that much. For the moment i am glad people can see it on YouTube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mQA5doBC9Y ).

Me, and my friends also sent smaller versions through email around so i guess many people will get to see it and maybe think for a second about it.

I would also like to thank everybody here for the positive feedback. When you don't work for a paycheck this is the best reward you can have and the most valuable.

Thanks,
Miltos

Miltos

This was a very striking and powerful video. Excellent. Thanks for sharing.

I'm still totally confused about the virtual camera thing you used to create the pan near the end. Can you provide (for a stupid person = me) step by step instructions on setting this up?

Thanks



Andrew

Thanks Andrew,

I got many emails on the subject and i realized that there is a lot of intererst on this technique. I could write a step by step tutorial on how to setup a simple shot but unless you are using Fusion or other software capable of camera projection the instructions will not be of any use to you.

However, since it's one of the tools that indie filmakers can use to add a little production value to their work i will write this step by step tutorial when i find some free time.

In the meantime there is a lot of info on the net and a simple google search will bring many results.

Have a look here:
http://www.digitalartform.com/archiv...rojecti_1.html

It's the first that came up. It's much more elaborate to do and you have to know Maya or other 3d software (of which i don't have a clue) but it helps to understand the logic behind it.
