Site for the Short Film "Winning Bidder"

Hi all, just wanted to post a link to the site I'm working on for a short film I recently completed. Nothing fancy, not too flashy, just the basics.

Having some success so far with the film - it won a local film slam held by an indie theater in downtown Orlando, and as a result it'll be showing this coming Sunday again for the yearly finals. Also just started the fest submissions, so hopefully there's some more good news to come soon, knock on wood.

Thanks for checking it out. There are some sample scenes on the downloads page.

Looks very interesting. I would like to see it. Unfortunately I cannot drive to Michigan. Good luck with the premiere!

It's really hard to say anything based on the teaser. Usually teasers and trailers are made to spark some interest but here we just see a bunch of characters walking or doing something + yeah, needs deinterlacing.
With the teaser you should make us want to watch your movie!

Looking at the trailers, the film is okay. Problems are with the black guy (african-american if you will) who is overplaying a lot, and the main actor is too (whe he meets the girl, besides that he's good). The composition is good too, except one scene when the black guy says that the place is not exactly the best one, we see some part of the main character's body and then the whole black guy's body with some space to the right of it. Need to turn the camera juuust a bit to the left so they both fit.That's little details but I guess I noticed them.
Lighting and the color is great - that's what I liked about the film (although sometimes characters are "overlighted", to the point when we can differentiate the 'real' lighting and the one setup. Life the cafee scene, everything is relatively dark but the character's face is bright, Maybe they were sitting close to a window..)
Sound's good too. Again, except in the very beginning of the 1st trailer. Seems that mic was too far away from the characters.
Need to see the whole thing to evaluate it :).
I hope you didn't get the impression that I'm the ultimate filmmaker or something. I'm pretty sure that I'll make similar mistakes sometime, but I notice mistakes equally in my and others' films.

BTW, how are you going to screen it? I mean, where to get the budget to transfer it on film? :) Or was it shot on film right from the start?

Christmas-style mockumentary...thoughts?

Hey all,

Made this with a buddy over christmas break last year. It was just intended as a fun project to mess around with, so there's definitely some colorful language..... anyway, critque away..

Hey thanks for checking it out. Some of what you say is very true - good eye - but some of it is the fact that the samples are in pretty compressed Flash video. Does some odd things to the audio and contrast unless you really bring up the bitrate, which I didn't really do. The micing definitely was tight in that scene - it's the audio on the Flash that's a little whack. I guess I should make them better, though I'm more focused in getting a menued DVD for it done right now for all the people involved. We had some 3 tapes full of behind the scenes stuff we shot which I have to wade through.

The press kit and screener DVD were my main first goal to finish and those are done and I've started sending 'em out to the fests. As far as screening we have a digital indie theater in town, plus a couple of "film nights" here and there. No reason for a filmout though - it's not good enough for something like that. Fests will get it in BetaSP.

Thanks again!

Yeah, that makes more sense when the quality is descreased.
I think, you shouldn't save on the quality though. You can upload smaller in length but higher in resolution or quality clips.
After all, there shouldn't be that much traffic so that you have to pay extras for bandwidth. Although it depends on the hosting plan you have.

Good sites for feedback?

I am wondering if you guys know some good sites that involve uploading short films and getting feedback/critiques from lots of other people. I would really love to be able to upload my first film to Triggerstreet and get some feedback from them, but seeing as how my film was a student project and uses what is most likely copyrighted material (an old Japanese Tohoscope logo and various drums/flutes from The Hidden Fortress), I am afraid of uploading it there because Triggerstreet is considered a film festival type deal I believe, so using copyrighted material is definitely a no-no.

I am looking for some non film festival type sites where I don't have to worry about that sort of thing. I am glad I came here to ask this because I had forgotten that I could also get feedback from you guys. So I will in fact post a link here soon to my first short film, but please, any other sites that you guys know of...let me know so I can get as much feedback as possible. I would greatly appreciate it.

I would try going to www.studentfilms.com they appear to host films there. I've watched a couple and the quality is pretty decent but I don't know what it takes to get a film on there.

Hope that helps.

I think all you have to do is pay a fee per minute to upload and be enrolled in some sort of 'school'. I've seen loads of films from Studenfilms.com, and it's a pretty good resource - you get to see a lot of good and bad shorts, know what mistakes to avoid, etc.

I think the best thing to do first is to use different/original music, because no matter where you upload it's still infringing copyright. Better to just change it now, then you'll have complete freedom over where you screen it. And you'll feel really good about having a 100% 'home-made' film too...
