Their Previous movie was very good. University Heights. I will be ordering this one too.

If your interested in seeing the end result of what a DVX100 can do & since the selection of DVX100 produced DVDs is limited to: Dixie Chicks Concert, K Street, Art History, Market 175, University Heights & some documentary about planes This is really a niche market :)

Plus they are from Iowa!

I actually have several microphones, including a Sennheiser ME66 shotgun with boom pole, but for this little movie did not use it, as it was not scripted. We were just fooling around and often times I find that when making a movie casually, the technical stuff can get in the way. We just wanted to film a little short and throw it together in an hour or so. Thanks for your suggestions, and perhaps in the future we will script something and use all my equipment!

So Corey, what settings are you using on the GL2 to get the filmic look you wanted? (if you don't mind sharing)

I liked the story and the special effects.

The echo was probably only noticable to my untrained ear because you pointed it out. I don't think it dramatically detracted from the film.

The only thing I didn't like was the two camera angles which you switched between. I became a bit dizzy after a while. It would have been nice to have a few more angles.

Regards,

Geoff

Let's see...I do remember taking that video into After Effects and applying the S-curve, however, the video had a pretty good film effect right out of the camera. For the opening shot I had a pretty high shutterspeed so I could get the colors of the clouds and the silouhettes of the people, and that was pretty much it. For the Beach sequence I did the same thing, only I zoomed in so I could blur out the beach in the background and focus in on the silouhettes. Other than this, I didn't do anything but the standard white balance and shutterspeed adjustments - always making sure to have the most open aperature I could, and zoomed in as much as I could to get a good DOF. Then the after effects dealie really took care of the rest.

Whoa that's so weird. I was in this play about 4 years ago. I was part of a comedy theater festival and this was one of the plays I was in. I was the character you have staged on the left. I thought this sounded familiar when I read your description.

Small world.....

Cheesy comedy about the telephone

To free up some band width on my website last night I uploaded my first film "The Review" to the ZED website and was suprised at the fast response of people. I had hesitated to do so before as it is a bit cheesy and full of obvious technical mistakes.

But if you are interested in taking a look the address is:

Although it is old I'd love to hear any comments you have.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Geoff

A little bit late with the reply, but I thought it was interesting. Some
nice shots in there and the old damaged look was very nice!

Didn't follow the story too much though <g>

I thought it was well done for a first piece, however it went on
too long for my liking and I didn't watch most of the last 25% of
the movie. The "joke" wasn't too funny after a while etc...

That was not a "film look", this was shot with TRI-X and PLUS-X black & white super 8 film and telecine'd by THE TRANSFER STATION in CA.

There is no story. It's just a random assemblage of bad footage set to music to convince people that maybe I did have some kid of story in mind, when in fact it's just all the underexposed, out of focus shots from another movie I did.

It's art for art's sake.

Is this film available to watch somewhere else? I don't want to
register to yet another site just to watch someone's work! From
the lack of response I'd say others feel the same way....

First: why did you ZIP these? It only complicates matters for people
who want to watch your stuff and it really didn't help in the filesize
department except for the Laura episode.

On to the movies. I thought the Laura episode was interesting
looks wise, but the story etc. could've used some work in my
opinion. Small and simple is good, but this wasn't enough <g>

Lesson 2 was nice, I liked the mirror idea. However, the more
cheesy effects lateron where a let down.

I have seen the Mojado before.

Doing a search I see you have posted these before:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...threadid=35749

If I where you I would just post a link to a new movie when you
create one. Otherwise a post feels overwhelming if people see
you have multiple movies and it waste some time as well if people
have already seen earlier work (like myself).

Looked cool.

All of the words reminded me of the seven deadly sins theme like in Se7en.

Looked cool.

How'd you do that monster voice effect halfway through?

Simple "Flange" setting with Adobe Audition (formely Cool Edit Pro) audio program.

I used to have fun with Adober After Effects to creat title sequences for no apparent reason.

Thanks all!
