No real implication of a twist... try a drastic music change with a reaction shot or some sound design (forboding sounds with a stark dark finish).

New technology themed internet show

Hi there friendly dvinfo members. I recently shot a test/pilot episode for a technology themed internet show I am working on. Unfortunately I had to host by myself, but next time a good friend of mine is going to co-host and I hope that it gives it a much more casual feel.

Take a look. It's kind of a rough cut. I'm planning on sweetening the audio up tonight. There is a some nose from the laptop's fan in one of the segments but I think I can get rid of it with Soundtrack Pro. We'll see!

It's in mpeg4 and you can download it here:

My first bike stunt show feature video

This is my first time filming a bike stunt show, for one of my friends, on my own with no time for second retakes.

Please provide me with some feedback on what you think as I'd like to improve on my future videos. I know I blew out some of the scenes and the color is a bit too saturated, I think. Excuse the profanity from the music used; I had a tough time choosing a song first of all.

My only complaint is when I encoded it to *.wmv the video looks significantly darker than the uncompressed avi file. My settings was 2-pass VBR; Avg Bitrate was 1900 and Max bitrate was 3000. How do you guys get such a good quality when you encode it to *.wmv? What are your settings?

I used a Panasonic DVC30 shot in the Cinema Gamma scene setting.

Any comments will be appreciated, thanks.

The look is totally fine. The editing and music need to be more dynamic, all dissolves just gets a little boring. Generally a dissolve is to show time lapse or for emotional impact. You have lots of great wide shots, try mixing in some tight shots as well, mainly to help with editing as you will want to be wide to show the tricks. Not bad for a first effort....

I gave it a look. Pretty cool. I don't mind the dissolves so much, but maybe a few quicker cuts could liven it up a bit.

I just got them to work on my other pc... nice work! -- for a single person, the animation is certainly nothing to laugh at.

Very nice, I'm currently trying to find a course where they teach Maya animation right now, and since I'm still in Grade 10, I need to find somewhere to train me for that kind of stuff after school. (and it must be in vancouver) I need suggestions. Art Institute of Vancouver? BCIT?

Newbie submitting work to the masses.

Got my xl2 about 4 months ago. This video was only the 3rd thing I filmed with it so I'm still getting accustomed to the camera and all of the magical things it can do.

Check this out and give me your thoughts.

Sheridan, I have not viewed your work (downloading now) but the best board to post this is our DV for the MAsses board, that's where everyone posts his work:
