playing around with the "filmlook"

I have been playing around to get rid of that "video" look.
Pls have a look at my "playback" videoclip.
Footage was shot with a Sony dcr-pc8e pal.

- combining green screen footage

- lighting experiments

- playback synchronization etc...

- Post editing with Adobe Premiere

You can see the Quicktime video here:

All constructive feedback and/or comments are welcome !

Thanks

Marco

Hey that wasnt bad at all.

I liked the "green" light the most. It had a very filmic-feel to it. Actually a little like some scenes in Fight Club.
Also the green-screen effects worked well.
My only complaint, which is minor, is that we could have seen the actors face from more exciting angles. They intended to get a little boring. But ofcourse this was also only a test.

Good Job and good luck in your future projects.

Excellent result! I have a single chip camcorder and very often think about buying a 3ccd one. You proved that with good light and clr correction, single chip owners don´t have to feel so... "depressed".

Could you give more specific details about the lighting and the post?

playback synchronization was a bit off at times.. (or maybe it was the actor not knowing the lyrics.. ;-)
It also became a bit repetitive.. you need more shots.
Framing.. did you letterbox in post? It was a bit iritating that you couldn't see the eyes many times.

But what matters most is how it looked! I think it looked very good! Good lightning/ color correction work!

Looked pretty cool. Some of your lighting looked great.

Whatever else it did, it make me buy the song from the iTunes store. :)

thanks for yr replies and the useful tips! A new "improved" version of this "videoclip" will be ready soon:

with:

- new framing in order to get better close-ups
- addition of a few new shots to avoid repetitiveness

Very good overall. I liked the "film" look.

One thing that I thought would make it a little better, was varying the distance of the shots. Everything was so close to the talent that I started feeling claustrophobic. Doing a few distant shots here and there would make it a little easier to watch. Keep up the good work!

Hi Marco,

Nice work with a single CCD camera. How did you set up the greenscreen? What lighting did you use?
