Cross-Talk: A 'Good' Hacker Movie

The only thing I can think of would be Hollywood's low-budget flick with boobs that never really had anything to do with technology or cyber crime at all other than a virus that sank oil-rigs. Poop.

Enter Cross-Talk. It's a first for me and movie making so please feel free to tear me a new one if anyone thinks this sucks. All I ask for is reasons other than "This stinks..." so I can make improvements because this is for you guys and not some demented idea of what I think a movie is.

Part2 is right around the corner so check back in a week and check it out! All I ask is that you guys download via my website rather than a direct link.

ZzzZzz.tv - Probably the end of the Internet...

Double-click the Cross-Talk folder and the link is right there. Thank you for your time and don't forget to tell me what you think!

Comments.

- Good music *note, if it isn't yours to use, you can't go too far with using it. Good music choices anyway.
- title fonts are unreadable until the actual title.
- I like that you want to show the reality of hacking
- HOWEVER, no one is going to sit still watching NO HUMAN and just stuff on the screen for the first five minutes. I only did so I could see how it plays out. Title sequence way too long. Even for the beginning of a feature.
- I like the flash cut between the bathroom scene and him doing coke
- I like that you are trying to show the obsessive / compulsiveness of doing something like hacking. Haha Ted Bundy folder.
- But again, seven minutes in and still NO STORY. The first story note is him chatting with his contact. TOO LATE. You need that very early in. If that is your first act, on story alone it has nothing there for the viewer to chew on. I/ the audience need more to entice me to download the next one.
- I'd like to see your next version.

James,

Wow, what a production! Now I know where all the school budget money is going. The costumes were fantastic!

I wish you would have used more of your steadicam shots as they add real dynamic energy. The jib shots were good.

Which stabilizer were you using and with which camera?

I wish the sound crew had mixed in some audience sound as it would have helped with the overall video production.

The streaming worked well! Thanks for letting us look at it.

Tery

Well, actually that was produced by an individual. She has an organization that produces these types of shows and donates all proceeds to local healthcare organizations for kids and various others. There's no way a local school could or would have paid what she paid for that, right at $15,000. She had it taped as a demo for her daughter who played Cinderella and is a model. Of course the other kids got to benefit from it as well. She takes good care of all of them. She owns all of the custom made costumes and sets and has produced several other shows all with their own set of costumes and sets.

The Steadicam shots were done with an XL-1 on a Hollywood Lite GTX, almost identical to the Steadicam Mini. Then we shot the actual performance with 4 XL-1's. So, I guess you could say there were five camera angles to choose from.

Thank you for your input!

The music in there is all from newgrounds.com from their audio portal so there is no worries about any copyright problems. I will pay my respects in the beginning and end once I am sure what's being used.

Not sure what you ment about not being able to read the title font until the title? Could you explain this to me some more?

That spectrograph intro is indeed very long (and no longer funny after 1000 times), if I did something similar but a diffrent and much smaller skit that still had a punchline do you think that would work?

Your very right about the viewer needing something to chew on...I have ideas and will update part1 and put the second clip online soon if not today. Thanks again for your time!

There are two times that the font appears. The second time for the "Crosstalk" title. but before that there is another word I cannot read.

I think if you just cut it down by half that will still give you enough time to have the beginnings of a story.

The first title is "2600 Present", it says that because when I was making that I did not have my ZzzZzz.tv domain/website yet. So I used 2600 hoping that would no offend anything already out there. That is the frequency of old cross-bars and switchboards (more like the entire phone system) in the LA area around the end of the 70's and early 80's, before everything became digital. It could have been like that in other states but I only know for sure LA did.

Believe it or not I already cut the size of that intro in half already (sic). So I'm just going to go with something with much less dialog but still gives that offset/errie? feeling in the beginning.

Thank you again for your thoughts!

Spiritual/Political Film in Nashville

Hi -

We're approaching the one year anniversary of beginning production on a no-budget DV feature related to recent history, faith, and community. It's a slow process, but we're sticking with it. There's a synopsis, stills, clips, and a trailer at:

www.hometown.aol.com/outofthefog2004/LED.htm

Comments, criticism, and encouragement are all welcome.

thanks,
Allan

Live band footage - Sony Z1

Hey everyone,

I put up some footage of a local band I shot a few weeks ago. It was shot with a Sony Z1 with slightly higher contrast and brightness applied in Premier. My friend took a split of all the audio channels and recorded his own audio mix to his laptop. It's encoded in WMV format (Mac users may have troubles with this - sorry!), which doesn't do the camera justice. I'll probably put a higher-quality version up soon.

Feedback is more than welcome. There will be lots of these videos to come.

(if you don't have Windows Media Player, copy this url and load it in Winamp. I think this works.)
