New short made with homemade MINI35 kit.

Hi everybody,

we’ve just finished our first short movie using a homemade MINI35 kit (based around a Nikon F-2 and a Canon XM-2/GL-2). It’s freely inspired by the movie Fight Club (but it’s not the point of the movie at all). Our budget was about 400$, mostly spent on food and tapes. A lot was done in post, color-correction, stabilizing, degraining,… We hope you’ll like it. If you have any question, please just ask, we’ve a lot of “making-of” pictures if you’re interested. A last thing, it’s in french, excuse the quite crappy subtitles, if you have any correction, please tell us, thank you very much.

The stills look great, but the I keep getting the message "file does not exist" when trying to download the movie.

I haven't had a chance to watch the whole thing yet, but jumping jehosephat, you've got a great look to all the footage!

Your server is very slow though, it seems. The download took forever.

Wow - great looking footage

Do you want to post a how-to on how you built your Mini35, did the post and what lenses you used for the shoot?

Yes.

Yes, that is a great thread - just wasn't sure if he did anything different from the standard way of doing things.

thanks for the link

No, the server is very unstable. I just downloaded it with a special
download manager and it had to reconnect something like 1000
times before the file was completely in. The problem with right-
clicking and saving is that it stops if the connection is broken and
you can start all over again. Intelligent download managers just
wait till the file is available again and resume from were they left
off (much better).

Besides being unstable it is also a very slow link.

Great job. I liked the tone. Definately saw the nods to shots and scenes found in Fight Club and sensed a little bit of a Amelie influence as well. Two of my favorite films. Technically speaking the hot spot, in my opinion, actually usually added to the feel in this particular film. I noticed that you were able to get rid of the "problem" when you showed the commercial montage. Also a very good choice. Technically what did you change with your adapter setup to remove the hot spot problem? Please share with us the breakdown order of the componets in your adapter. Thanks again for posting. Wouldnt mind seeing some more frame grabs but this time at 720X480 high res. jpg's.

sorry again, both servers should work but it seems there are too many connections at the same time, so please be patient

you might care to run your footage through vignette plugin

http://www.theimagingfactory.com/dat...ducts1.htm#vgt

it works inside after effects and may remove the mild vignetting from your footage
