Rob, there are no other sites. I hope you'll be able to see it and I hope the fact that you have to register is not hindering anybody else.

Post your work and I will see it whether I have to register or not.



Peter,

I'm glad you have the DVD. Thanks for checking "Bert" out and seeing our film.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

Derrick

Well, I actually did register and went through the whole download and then it told me that I need to "update" my digital rights management software and I told it to go away.

If you want people to watch it, you should put it up somewhere else.

It looked okay. However, I would try to increase the contrast a bit
with some color curves (shaped very slightly like an stretched S).

Thanks Rob;

Lighten up man! the Laura short was like a knock knock joke, Victor Logan (the author) is like that, you either find it genious or stupid.

My intention was to give a message in which people could access all shorts, it would be a tad difficult to customize it so it would fit your particular experience. Plus I have a screen grab from each short (or I try) so you can skip what you have seen already.

About Lesson 2, I shared the same oppinion, I voiced it to Ian, the director, and he told me that he actually changed that part. A new version should appear online shortly.

The reason its Zipped is so it won't be streamed from the site, instead of renaming the extension I decided to zip, there are some computers in which you can't change the extension, depending on your Windows setup.

Thanks again.

Looks like Ice Cube.

However the video left me a litte 'starving for action'.

I think it falls into the same trap I fall into during music videos - it just becomes the boring watching some guy rap/sing. Not much story. No cool choreography/dancing.

However the video was well done and put together.

How many other music videos have you done?

This was my 4th music video. I am not content with the rapper just singing to the camera type of video, developing a storyline and having some additional special fx is something I definately need to work on in the future. I guess you live and you learn.

Yeah I just finished my third one.

I really thought it was going to be good while I was in production, but now I severly dislike it.

I thoroughly convinced the only way to make a good music video is just to keep making them and making them...


The persistance will pay off!

The film is being submitted by the producers to various festivals and is being looked at by the big cable companies for their program line up.

I was hired for the piece. The producers are handling the submissions, publicity, and viewing venues. "Bert" should be available for your viewing at a later date.

Thanks for taking a look and your support.

Cheers!

Derrick

I totally understand where you coming from Brandon. But you got to learn to crawl, before you walk, and hopefully we both can be running with this filmmaking thing in the near future. Where can I see some of your work?

I will try to post it in the next couple of days.

It was the first one I was able to lead the production on instead of just edit.

The band is very happy with it - so I guess it was successful.

I guess the more I hang out around here and view some of the incredible things being put together I get more critical of my own work.

Do you have site hosting your previous videos?

Thanks for the reply Rob.

I'm afraid Professor Blacenco was a bit long winded. All of the characters are based on people I know and I suppose part of the humour requires you to know these people. I'm sorry it didn't interest you enough to stick it out till the end.

The major problem I saw with the film after making it is that it really doesn't play out like a story. It kind of rambles on as you say without any real climax

Nevertheless it managed a much better response than I ever expected on the CBC website. Within an hour it had 4 votes of 5 stars and was number 1 in their ranking for a few days. Someone must have liked it despite its many faults. This was certainly encouraging for me to keep at it.

Regards,

Geoff
