I liked it!! Was it filmed w/trv30? If so it gives many a sample of what can be produced w/ such a camera, no need to go out and get all the bells and whistles like my dumb@#%$ self did just to play. In any event now I know what I can do w/ my pd-150 and trv20 as a camera "B" and a few Heineken's. Good Job!!

Hi Jamie,

Yes, it was filmed on a TRV30 (PAL version), just using the natural light from outside.

But what about the Heineken's?

I love to have few darks before I start a creation, it helps me dig deep into my thoughts after my boring day job.

I was entertained myself, especially at the disappearing items. You guys really know how to use your editors well. I wish I knew how to use Vegas to it's full capabilities.

You really push that Sony camcorder well, I'll say that. I have a GL2 and have not really used it yet from lack of a good script/idea/actors/camera crew.

When I was 17 of course I had a crappy camera, but was full of ideas and I had 2 friends that could do stuff. That was high school. Now, I'm 30, got a great camera and have my girlfriend, that's it. Life can be cruel in certain ways.

So I have to not only shoot, write, act, and edit, but add music as well. I can really only have good shots when I am filming because no one else can really copy my exact style, because I'm not always sure about what I'm going to do until I do it. If I really wanted to have help I'd need to explain every shot or have a story board.

Oh, I knew it was the same dude right away. Thus, I wasn't shocked when he acted the way he did. I might even be a bit more crazy if that was to REALLY happen.

Good job man.

You're right: it's not the expensive equipment that makes your movie. Although I would be interested to see what I could do with a Panasonic DVX100...

Despite of your cruel life, you still have lot's of possibilities. Just find yourself some friends again ;-)

I liked it alot. It was well done, and drew me in. The opening shot was great. I almost wanted him to zap the whole room firsst before he zapped the protaganist.

I would have liked to see the ocean scene punched up a bit. An overcast day and water can still look great with the right filters. Maybe there is something you can do in post a bit.

What is that thing sticking out of the water behind him?

I think it was a marker showing where the end of the spit is. So boats know where it is really shallow or marking one side of the entrance to a cove. But then again I don't really know because I don't live there.

That thing in the water is the submarine periscope of a long lost German U-Boot from the 2nd World War. I rented the submarine to give a feeling that you are being watched, even at this desolate spot at the end of the world. It is a hidden feature that contributes to the overall theme of the story.
