Handguns

Rarely do I make a serious video ... This is another example of that.

Unfortunately, we shot this on a whim back in June, and one of the guys is out in California now. Thus, we couldn't redo the audio. I guess that's what I get for sitting around on a video, huh?

Nice effects. The title and premise is pretty clever.

That was good. Their hand motion really made it look like there was recoil, and the rocket launcher at the end was awesome! Really well done.

This is an example of how to make a really SHORT AND entertaining film for very little money (at least i don't think much was spent). (This is a compliment) It looks like cheap video but the effects and whole premise is extremely entertaining. And take this from someone who is extremely critical.

My tip to others. Worry less about "how it looks" and make a compelling film, regardless of the genre. The "look" can be achieved with a good DP and some practice. Its a tech issue, not a story issue. Story and performance must come first in my mind. This film succeeds and I couldn't care less that it looked "cheap." Now since you have some fun and entertaining ideas that you know how to execute well, you can step up and achieve a better "look" next time.

PS. Sound can easily be fixed even if you just do a voice over which I would suggest you do. No one cares who is speaking the lines.

You guys did a great job.

Thanks, I appreciate it. Unfortunatley, I wasn't behind the camera for this one, so all of the shots I was basing off of luck in my eyes. I was thinking about adding filters over the whole thing, but then I though, "Nah, I'm done with this. Time for the next project." If anyone has ideas, let me know. I usually just think of something and do it all myself. It makes for some long days, though. Again, thanks for the feedback.

Again, thank you. I wasn't going to post the thanks this time (not that you don't deserve the thanks), but I had to comment on your signature. I love how everyone has all their specs listed, then you had a commodore monitor. I was like, "What? They're still in business?" Then i googled it under image search and almost woke up my wife laughing. Nothing like editing amazing footage on that bad boy, eh?
