Bikini clad aliens at my place last weekend

I'm guessing many people up north are getting a touch of cabin fever so I'll post 2 poolside clips from a production I was shooting at my home last weekend.

These particular scenes were bikini clad aliens who seduce and kill unsuspecting crew members after transforming into aliens. You may recognize the big guy if you have been to the Indiana Jones show at MGM Studios (aircraft mechanic who fights). He was also the terminator at Universal and in a few tv series.

The second day we had a makeup crew from Orlando come in to transform the girls to look like klingon like aliens. The makeup crew worked on the girls for 3 hours. Rick Gonzales is a great makeup artist who has done makeup for numerous hollywood movies. Here's a link to the makeup clips if anyone's interested:

Two days from 7 AM to 5PM turned out to be a lot of fun with a great cast and crew.

Critique my Spec Commercials

Greetings all! I just finished shooting and editing two spec commercials. One is for Starbucks coffee called “Morning”. The other is for Frosted Flakes called “Opera”. I’d love to hear everyone’s feed back.

Excellent job Yohann! I really enjoyed it. The subtle way you play with focus, the creative composition of simple two shots, intresting colors, moody atmospheric music, ect. Great all around. I don't even speak french and I think I understood it perfectly because the actors comunicated so well.

You might want to conisder subtitles just so more english speaking people will want to watch it. The films deserves it.

Only question: What'd you shoot it on?

Good work.

Hey Michael. Nice work. I'm not sure what the "meaning" of this peice is but then again I don't think it matters as it's clearly more about tone then a literal interpertaion. Some of those shots are georgous, and the flicker effect is a nice abstract touch.

My only criticism is the war memorial. It all seemed very quiet and personal and intresting until that part, which seemed a little too forced in terms making us feel a certain way with an image that will always draw people’s sympathys. The other images were more intresting to me.

All is all, this peice seems like sections from a film that has yet to be plotted. I was waiting for someone to start talking and a scene to begin, which is cool. Maybe that's what you'll make of it.

Good job.

This music is becoming quite a bit of a cliche in modern shorts or demo reels. I think it's the 4th or 5th time I hear it in one...
It just doesn't have the same impact anymore.

Thomas, the music is untitled but it's track #3 of the Sigur Ros album called ( )

Jake, the frosted flakes one cracked me up. I loved it when the guy started crying after that one measly flake fell out...

BTW: What camera did you film those on and where did you get the music for the commercials (and your other stuff too)

Thanks a lot Aaron! We used the DVX 100. The music for Starbucks was David Bowie, "Queen Bitch" and the Flakes spot was Pavorati. I don't have permission for either one, (Yikes!) but since they're spec I'm hoping the powers that be won't mind.

Thanks Again.

2min Promo Intro

The local Youth Coalition hired me to make a short promo intro video for their Youth Speak Out Forum. It's a day where kids speak their minds on community issuses and they wanted to play a video before the students speak to kind of rally them.

Yes, I know sigur ros is being used alot lately, but if the shoe fits, wear it, right?

PS...I just turned 18, in case you were wondering how old the creator was.

Thanks for looking!

It seems a little slow to "Rally" the kids. If you were pulling at heart strings and asking for donations, cool, but "rally" or "pump up", I didn't get that feeling. To preempt a speaker you usually want something that grabs attention quickly and leaves the audience wanting more.
It's nice though. I've looked at some of your other stuff before and I want to tell you, you do nice work. Quite nice.

-I liked the guy in the trash can too!

Two Thumbs Down

That was the most boring clip I've ever seen posted on here. Please, for the sake of everyone else, cut it down to 30 seconds. I watched it all the way through hoping I'd see some hot booty, but the payoff wasn't worth it.

I hope you cut your movie a lot better than that.


The person sitting beside me as I watched asked me if it was a set of a porno movie.


I like your pool though.
