The trailer had very much tension, great opening shot and timing.

Keep up the good work.

(What the hell, a budget of 50 dollars :-)?)

Great trailer, AGAIN ;-)

Especially acting performances looked very good.

What did you shot in on?

Good luck, you're doing great!

My Atari style site for my DV & Film work.

Hello,

First Post here. I'm putting up a site to show my work in DV, Super8 film and music. If you like the Atari 2600, you will probably enjoy my site.
I was wondering if anyone could check out the site and see if you like the material.
There is a preview in the downloads section. Any feedback on the site would be great as well.

Thanks,

-Arman

VERY nice.
I loved the way it looked and I am wondering if it was possible to get a copy to Denmark in some way?
Also what was the budget of the picture?

I couldn't tell if you wanted comments on just the content, or the site itself...

Very Atari. Cool. I miss Pole Position! It is clear how to get through the site and is fun to see what little animation will come up, encouraging users to explore more.

One thing you might want to do is have the section button stay highlighted as you navigate through its parts. For instance, when in the Music section, it is clear I am on the Analog page, the button is yellow, but it is not clear I am in Music anymore...

You might want to use the blockier, serifed font you use on the page, or maybe make the text below the buttons part of the images as well and do a block pixelated font yourself...

One question to ask yourself is by going with an unrelated, Atari theme, is your site reflective of your work? They seem to have a very different style. And if you're cool with that, I know I am... but then, Atari invokes a lot of positive memories for me! :-)

Thanks for the feedback. I shot the film on the Panasonic DVX100A.

The budget was $400, and consisted of mainly parking tickets & food, as the cast & crew all worked for free. I'm just a college student, so I can't afford too much!

I do have DVDs available -- 2-Disc special editions which include a behind the scenes documentary, casting featurettes, a short film, trailers, and more! It costs $12 + $2 shipping.

They are available here: http://www.blueboxlimited.com/store/index.html

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll might try a different font for the buttons. I need to keep them as one of the few internet friendly fonts. If I use some kind of custom font, I could get unpredictable results on other peoples machines.

Did you check out the movie preview. I know it's kind of random, but it is representative of my early work.

As far as the relevance of the Atari theme, I have used atari computers (2600 & 800XL) to produce sounds on two of my albums and I was very inspired by the minimal, imaginative graphics. I even wrote a joystick controlled sound generator program for the 800xl that is on "Analog"

Looks great.

I would buy if I weren't living in Belgium (with taxes and shipping costs too expensive, as I'm on the edge of a project myself, and I'm also a college student so :-))

Great to hear you are doing so well :-)!

Filmmaking Podcast - Skinny Bones on Air

Hey all,
I spent this past summer directing my first feature and decided I'd go about sharing my experience via podcasting - if you don't know what it is check out this link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast

Well, things have picked up heavily from there - we got a mention in the Guardian UK and TIME magazine. However, I was wondering what other indie filmmakers think of the podcast, so I invite you to check it out -- go to

http://sboa.skinnybones.net

or subscribe to

www.skinnybones.net/rss.xml

with whatever podcast aggregator you use. Listen to a couple of episodes, and then please e-mail me at

podcast@skinnybones.net

with any questions or comments.

Thanks!

Why the democratization of video is bad.

See this is why you shouldn't give certain people, like myself, video cameras. (click here)

The website's not completely up yet, but I thought I'd share a couple of silly videos.

Feedback on my preview....

Feel free to leave a review on my sites message board or right here on this thread.

I'm interested in feedback on the movie preview for "Four Films", but I'd welcome any thought on the other material and on the site itself.

Check out the downloads section.....
