Clever Josh.

The only thing that pulled my attention away from the flow of the story was near the end the change of the lighting in the car was too gross... like from mid-day sun to late afternoon sun.
Following that the interior car lighting for the two actors was also poor.

Everything else seemed fine. So maybe a little polish up on your lighting would do it.

"All the Women I've Loved" by Byron Harmon, based on his book, published by Simon and Schuster. Premiered in New York City to a rousing industry audience of 400. Rights to feature were purchased.

"Before Twelve" by Milton Dewar, based on his short story, and feature project.

"Autobiography of a Suicide" has been broken into three parts. "Ring Toss" and "Free Walk" and "Blood Porcelin". Part one and two being submitted to festivals.

All of the above were filmed on the Canon XL1S.

Enjoy.

"One"

I just started working on this project. Its just for myself. Once I heard this music track, I knew I wanted to create something like this. I wanted to see what everyone thought. This is only a preview. There is much more to come. Thanks for checking it out.

From birth, childhood and beyond, full of different emotions. We come into this world alone, we leave it alone. "One" is someone's life flashing before them in a series of brief memories.

Hey, Derreck, I looked at the trailer from Before Twelve. I thought there were really interesting things in it, but sometimes it cuts a little bit too quck, and at the end it's like a little slow for a trailer. Although I really was frightened, when before the end that woman suddenly shocks out of bed :-)

What did you do on the movies? DOP? Cut the trailer?

Good luck!

EDIT: sorry Derreck, I saw you where the DOP.
I thought the second trailer, of the woman, really wasn't good. But I have to admit that could have good be because I REALLY don't like that music :-) :-)

Good luck :-)

You've got to love Sigur Ros :-p good music choice.
(I actually commend Godspeed You Black Emperor, they also make lengthy filmic tracks, but more apocalyptic and more complex. Sigur Rus is smooth music, perfect to dream away and to fall asleep (in a good way). Godspeed is more music that very slowly goes to a climax.
Anyhow, maybe you already all know this and I'm just repeating things for you :-p

My comment on the thing is: I liked many shots, but not the ones with the blond woman. I thought they kind of made the special poetic mood to go away.

Good luck, some very fine images!

Mathieu,

Thanks for checking "Before Twelve" It is a horror/drama.

I was director of photography on both pieces. "Before Twelve" had a very raw Lowell DP Kit, 3 Open Face 1000W w/ Barndoors, and a couple of additions.

"All the Women I Loved" I used a Arri Light Kit w/ 4 1000W Fresnels, 2 650W Fresnels, 2 300W Fresnels, 3 Chimeras, and a couple of china globes.

Cheers!

EDIT: Saw your edit, M. The "All the Women..." was associated with music industry professionals.

Thanks and Cheers!

I agree. Sigur Ros is grand.

But, Michael, i think someone already beat you to the punch

Michael, your piece is obviously not a sample reel. I prefer the family images you captured to random "effects" cuts.

Stringing images together at random can of itself begin to suggest an arc of development---of story. Combining music as atmospheric & ambivalent as you chose can pull all kinds of emotional strings in us, but where does it lead?

I'd be interested to see what you came up with to evoke a similar feel for place (home) and time (contemplation? infancy? naps on a gloomy afternoon?) without music. Practical audio effects could be as powerful.

Anyway, just wanted to recognize that you're not trying to sell anything, but make a movie ... maybe even a work of art.

Nice and simple.

I would clean up the text formatting a bit.

Also, you have no header information or meta tags.

Keith,

I'm not much of a web designer so what does "text formatting" mean?

I just don't like the straight arial fonts that you have.

And in your contact page there is an extra line space between one of your headings and the content.

Otherwise, it is fine.
