My best work on Vimeo!

Hi all, Ive just started uploading some of our best work on Vimeo, my brother and I own and run Gorilla films - a production company here in South Africa.

http://www.vimeo.com/gorillafilms/videos

Some feedback would be appreciated.

Hi

To me they seem well edited and shot.

I don't know what chroma key studio is. I thought chroma key was like a blue screen but these look more like a real environment.

It's difficult for me to comment on the creative content as I'm not a huge fan of most Hip Hop music.

However all Hip Hop videos seem to look very much the same to me: low angle shots of a performer mouthing to the words and gesticulating. I wonder if there is another way of doing this?

But what the hell do I know. I'm too old to comment really :-)

LOL... "Gesticulating" I like that word.

Only the black&white video is live action, the rest is shot in a chroma key studio - eg. blue or green screen background, then the color is keyed out and generated backgrounds are put in.

Very, very good. Camera work is excellent, audio is excellent. And while I realize that budget is often limited, I would have liked to see a bit more in the way a scene changes in the B&W video. The change to the inside of the car was good though.

I loved it.

Were you matching background movement with camera zooms or were you shooting them full screen against the chroma background and controlling all the camera movement in program? It's hard to tell when the video is formatted for the web and I would be interested in knowing because the end result looks really good.

Outstanding work, those chroma key shots with the generated backgrounds are seamless and the perspective is right-on.

Ye, everyone shot static seperately then virtual camera moved in post.

Awesome work on the Entity video especially, very clever compositing and it's also a very very well directed vid in terms of the composition and 'shot choices' (kinda funny to refer to shot choices in compositing, but it's a similar thing.)
And you certainly nailed the depth of field in a lot of the shots, something that I generally find is usually the clearest sign of a poor composite job over a good one.
