Dave and Liz - a San Jose 48 Hour Film Project 2009

Hey Everyone,

My friend and I just received our GH-1's last week so we'd thought we go through a trial by fire and shoot our San Jose 48 Film Project with them. We shot dual GH-1's for most of the shoot and added a Panasonic HMC150 to capture sound.

YouTube - Dave and Liz - 48 Hour Version - San Jose 48 Hour Film Project 2009

Genre: Romance
Character: Zach or Zelda Alexander, an exterminator.
Prop: A piece from a board game
Line: "Tell me again why this matters?"

Everything was written/shot/edited from 7pm 8/14/09 - 7pm 8/16/09.

For the Hong Kong style fight sequence in the film, and we were really pushing the 720/60p with a lot of fast pans. I did notice some mud creep in during some extreme motions, but overall it held up pretty well.

My favorite part of using the GH-1's was all the gorilla/convert shots that we picked up at a local mall. When we walked into the stores, I walked past two security guards with the camera on my shoulder and they didn't even blink. My actors loved being able to act in public, it was a blast to shoot.

Thank you for the kind words! I really hope the audience tomorrow night enjoys it at the screening.

I was pretty thrilled that we were one of the cities that made the jump to 720p. I competed in the SF '09 48HFP and was a little disappointed to watch our film in SD. Eager to see how well the 720p will hold up on the big screen :).

Extremely well done and very highly entertaining. I really loved the couple, they came across as completely natural to me.

I hope it goes well for you. Those GH1s sure look good.

Don't you need location release forms signed for your short to qualify for the competition?
