3rd place in Iron Filmmaker 2007

Last Thursday at 10am began our Iron Filmmaker Challenge. They gave us the ingredients and we had 24 hours to turn in a short film based on those ingredients.

This year the premise was that the town totem pole had been desecrated and a curse had been placed upon the town. The rest was up to us.

Here are a few stills. I will have the short up when the editor finishes with the extended cut (we had to cut out a ton to make it into the time limit):

Immediately after the screening, we were approached by a guy who just finished producing a feature, shot it on the XDCAM and wanted to know how we got video to look like that. He said he almost thought it was film and then talked about the XDCAM for a while and how much more like film it looks, etc.

But we got a really great reception and though last year we placed higher (2nd), that's still two consecutive years in a row we placed, and I still think we can eventually walk off with first.

Here is the video:

Also, here's our entry last year, we took 2nd: http://www.jlboyce.com/video/Murder_My_Kitten.mov

Hello Jason,

That was an interesting look. How did you achieve it?

Hey Mike,

We used Barry Green's Bronze Scene File w/ +6db gain and weather that was just on the verge of raining (it wound up doing so a few hours after we finished, in the middle of editing)

The Bronze Scene File sort of simulates the skip bleach effect on 16mm, and the gain adds a bit of noise that looks close enough to grain.
