It was okay, but I felt it you showed too much, which in turn dulled my
interest a bit. The dressing for example might not be needed?

Didn't I see this somewhere else here on the board as well?

I thought it was okay, especially the beginning. The "hiding" and fighting part
felt a bit too slow though, could use a bit more speed and cutting in my opinion.

It was a nice little movie. It was way too small though (resolution wise).
I'd imagine your actors weren't too pleased with that frozen river?

Thanks for watching it. Strange, from other replies i've got they said the exact opposite. That the beginning was too long and the espionage and fight scene was too short. I guess i can't please everybody. But this was just an experimental little short with no script. Im gonna start working on a 10min short with a script in a few weeks, im gonna post how that turns out. Anyway, thanks for the reply.

Color Guard Ad - 1 minute

For entertainment purposes only... ;)

The color guard instructor wanted a 1 minute teaser ad to recruit for next year's guard. Used No Survivors from FreePlayMusic as the background.

Vid with VX2100(except last, which was a Sony 520 D8 cam). Liquid Edition 6.1 edited.

Gemberling Episode 4!

Hey guys...

The latest installment of our no-budget sci-fi comedy epic, "Gemberling" is up for viewing on our website, www.cowboyandjohn.com

We filmed on XL2, edited on Premiere pro and did the effects in After Effects. We're well aware of the cheap-o quality....it's (mostly) intentional!

It's in the media section, episode 4. Check it out if you get a chance!

Thanks!

-Curtis

I wasn't the one that came up with the idea of filming this during winter. It was the writer's; the guy who plays James (the rober). I tried to convince him to do this during spring or summer but he couldn't wait. Both of these guys are climbers and they love the thrill of danger. The editor made the small file so I could preview it over the internet. I'm still waiting on the bigger version.

I'm very prouds of the shots I was able to get in top of the river, hopefully you cought that!

If anyone uses triggerstreet.com...

I have my first short film on triggerstreet.com called "Just Before Noon". I shot it on an optura xi and edited it on FCE. Super simple, but that's what I wanted my first short to be. Any reviews would be great (I already have one on there that is blunt and harsh so be honest)!

Lon, congrats on the new camera!

Overall it was clear of the effort involved, good job!

It's not necessary to have created a short to know what is entertaining on the viewers end, it only educates one as to the amount of work involved. You put some time into it, that was obvious. Cleaner audio and a fresh storyline is all I saw, your camera work and editing looked fine.

I sort of agree with Rob. There wasn't enough story/action in the first part. The fight was OK, but too short a payoff for watching the beginning.

Oh yeah..
The fight sound effects... Don't steal sound effects from video games!! :)
They are really bad, and drew me right out of the movie (unless you are going for comedy). Cut them out, make your own, they'll be much more natural.

And *poof*.... we are back on topic.

A note to people who post criticism, please post within the context of the media. Saying something is crap is not criticism, it is being an a-hole.

I can't really recall those shots (but then again, I do see a lot [of movies]).
Let us know (in this thread please) when a larger version is up and I'll take
a second look!

Would you happen to have a direct link? Time is limited for most people and
I doubt you will get much if any viewings this way. If that is not possible
you may want to consider putting it up somewhere where you can link directly
to the movie (or the page it is on).

Triggerstreet, eh?

Hey Riley,

I watched your short. I liked it. Interesting camera angles and the split-screen worked too.

It was nice and short and mundane. Until the end. hehe.

Keep it up. I look forward to seeing what else you can do and it was nice to see what that little Xi is capable of.

sincerely,

ian
