Looked nice! Did you crop the video before export or not? It looked
liked you wasted some bandwidth by leaving the black bars there.

Definitely not my cup of tea. Also the audio was highly distorted,
so you might want to look into optimizing that in the future.

Hi Rob. You know, I didn't even think about it. I will play around with your suggestion and see what happenes size wise. Thanks again for pointing it out
On second thought, I don't think I can do it because on three ocassions in the video, I have things that spill onto the black bars

Thinking of submitting for a festival. Could use some input.

I have posted this film before but I recieved 3 responses to it. Now I am thinking of submitting it to a film festival and would like some input from you guys as to what you all think. Any criticism would be great. Thanks again.

Lovely imagery in the opening scenes.

Terence Malick fan?

I started to think .. .maybe not .. when we see the scene of the young man throwing away the shotgun. The video audio recording is jarring. I would rather that the music just played all the way through without the on location sound.

But then you return to the imagery.

I prefer it for all of the disconnected shots. I think it has artistic composition. Quite nice.

I really do like it. Submit away.

Mitch,

Are you targeting specific festivals here or asking in general? If I remember correctly (this could be way off base, so sorry if I offend) this was done as a high school project. And assuming you are still in high school, I would definetly say to seek out contests specifically designed for your age group. I could see you being very successul in that. If you're talking about entering larger scale festivals (sundance etc.) best of luck to you but unless you have tons of cash I would try to be very specific and pick certain ones you might appeal to. I know when we showed Detonate (a short us par-t-comers made with a DVX) at an international festival, while extremely cool to even be accepted, competing against stuff shot on 35mm is just overwhelming and we had no real shot at winning anything in my opinion.

I'm gonna be submitting a feature I shot last summer over the next month, and just looked at websites for a bunch of fests and picked the two I thought I had a legitamate shot at getting into (slamdance and cleveland film festival, if wondering). Anyway, this is a long response for something that might not even be helpful but that would just be my two cents.

On the other hand, if you have lots of money to "burn" I say go for it, the worse that can happen is you getting denied.

Also, do you have the rights to Grapes of Wrath? Do you need it for an inspired by project? Never done an adaptation as my focus is writing, but you should make sure to check these out before submitting, 'cause that would suck to get accepted and dq'd.

Stuff looks pretty funny. Kind of like a Jack Black comedy. Was it actually rated by the MPAA?!

In response to your question Glen, my camera that I used was a Sony TRV87. It is a single CCD camera, but has gone a long ways for myself. Now in response to Jeff, you are correct this was made as a high school class that project. As for festivals, I was planning on some smaller scale ones with cheaper entrance fees. No Sundance in my immediate future. I just want to start out small and hopefully work to a larger project. Right now I am in the process of submitting one to a smaller festival in Boston. So we will see how that goes. Thanks again for the replies.
