This was shot with a GL-2. It was a really spontaneous project that just popped up on us, so we quickly shot it.

Ian, Thanks for the tip about the voice being a little too low. We'll take that into consideration. I appreciate it.

LOL yeah I totally agree with you!! They make us say all that crap but most of us realize how obnoxious it is so we only do it when the manager is watching. Thanks for the feedback!

Joy Ride

Hello All,

This is my second attempt at a film. I'm learning by trial and error and would love to hear some honest critisism.

The film is a romantic tragedy and is meant to present a harsh view on the world.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Geoff

It's at http://www.onelastkill.com

Thanks a lot!

Not real big on using flash intros on sites.

But overall I guess its decent. Try adding some more info, maybe a blog for your progress on the film.

Do you have a trailor? That would probably be better than the flash intro.

Actually, I'm doing a little guerilla marketing, in that I'm creating the online presence in the guise of this being actual footage.

Of course, I realize that anyone with minimal sleuthing abilities can easily determine that it's a production, but I like this angle for the initial interest.

The website will grow to give more details about the "event," until the joke is finally over. Then I will turn the site into a real movie site, with information on the creation of the short, the production, etc.

We shoot the rest of the piece on April 9th. After that, the trailer and all the goodies will be posted.

Interesting movie. I enjoyed it.

Not much for her accent though.

Overall a good production though.

Wow.

Amazing work. The guy in the bear-head-thingy seemed ... so lost. Lost in a big place. A place with bushes.

Is it because he's going through an existential crisis of some kind? It's all so ... open to different interpretations. Does he shy from the new because he's afraid of life? Or it is that the furry hat blocks his peripheral vision?

You've obviously been studying Antonioni. I detect a healthy dose of Murnau's influence too, especially in the Pirate's sudden appearance. Why does he dance? Why do any of us dance, when death and destruction threaten the world on a daily basis?

I need to just take a moment and let this very subtle work sink in ...

There. Thanks. I'm better now.

Good movie, but I think the story was a little bit dry. Other than that, good editing, music matched well, but the other thing, the opening shot with you talking on the cell phone, that was one shot... and it lasted quite a while. You might want to do some different angles for that scene where it is just your mouth. Those are my 2 cents!

I thought it was funny! The only critique I would have is that the sound difference between cuts is noticeable/slightly distracting...
so different cuts of the same scene have different "noise." Perhaps you can use some low pass filtering to smooth it out...
But I liked it... acting was pretty good too!

Thanks guys for the comments.

I agree Swiss German speaking English leaves much to be desired. But Swiss German on its own has a Gaelic quality to it, as you might hear in the Scottish highlands, that I really like the sound of.

Regarding the film I was trying to evoke in the beginning that feeling that someone has when they have a strong crush on someone. When that person is saying "sure I'd like to go out with you but ..." you don't hear the "but ...". To everyone else it is obvious they are rejecting you. And I guess that is what I also saw in the film afterwards that it was obvious from the beginning what was happening.

I'm wondering if perhaps a video stutter on the positive statements of the girl might help emphasise what my character is hearing. But I realise it is difficult to make this story have a surprise ending.

Thanks again. I figure I need to work on the suspense elements in my stories a bit.

Once again I appreciate any comments as it is a learning experience for me.

Best Regards,

Geoff

First I would center the flash on the page. Second I would at least (!)
cut the time in half by speeding up the words (they are too slow)
and/or combine them so there are less "pages".

Also the design of the text etc. on the "more" page isn't that great
in my humble opinion.

Also it may be wise to add a skip button in the intro for if someone
has seen it already etc. etc.

p.s. it might be worth it to know how to craft HTML with hand or
get a better editor than Frontpage. For example, dump the larger
fonts on that "more" page and add something like:

<table width="100%"><tr><td width="10%">&nbsp;</td><td width="60%">
.... text ...
</td><td width="10%">&nbsp;</td></tr></table>

To line it out better in the center. You could then add a style
section to the head block of HTML to nicely justify the whole text:

<style>
p { TEXT-ALIGN: justify; }
</style>

Music Video I did for a contest...

I did this video for the yellowcard breathing music vid contest, I didnt make it in the top 5 because i didnt have enough votes. I am curious to hear what everyone here thinks about it.

The main camera used is the optura xi w/ a bunch of accessories and for the "home video" footage I used a canon zr45
