Hall Of Mirrors indie film!

I just bought and watched Hall Of Mirrors! What a incredible DV film! Yes DV! It wasn't a XL1 but man it looked great! But I really didn't notice what it was shot with, it was a great movie anyway!
I encourage anyone to check it out who is interested in NO BUDGET filmmaking! This is a must have on how to make a film look!

Automated broadcast systems smashing miniDV cassettes

Hi folks! I want to zero-in on the issue raised tangentially in another thread: Is anyone else experiencing problems using miniDV ccassettes in automated broadcast playback systems? If you saw the other thread you know that we are submitting a program in miniDV to a community access broadcaster who says miniDV cassettes are cracking in their automated broadcast playback system, and they're insisting we switch to DVCAM, simply because DVCAM cassettes are more durable. I asked another community access broadcaster about this and they said "Well, yes, it happens occasionally, but not more to miniDV than to DVCAM or S-VHS or other media, they all crack in the automated system occasionally." Is anyone else experiencing this as a notable problem with miniDV?

Also, I'd again like to ask if anyone is regularly recording in miniDV format on small DVCAM cassettes. This same community access broadcaster says this won't work, although it seems to most everyone else I have spoken with that it should work. I've had one response from our friend in Estonia who says it seems to work for him in an experimental mode -- now I'm looking for any broadcaster who is regularly playing back for broadcast from small DVCAM cassettes that have been recorded in miniDV format. I'd like to know what kind of broadcast playback hardware you are using and what your experience is with using these more durable DVCAM cassettes over miniDV -- but recorded in miniDV format. Thanks one and all!

Can you find out the brand (Sony?) and model of automated unit the access broadcaster is using? If you can, I can get you a definative answer. Without knowing the specifics your answers will be vague and basically useless.

The theater I work at is playing Full Frontal. I haven't seen it yet, but I've poked my head in to see the XL1s footage. From what I've seen so far, it doesn't appear to blow up to 35mm very well. But then, he is using straight out of the box with available light. I'll be going to see it in the next day or two, I'll let you all know how it is.

Hmmm...yes, I can see that that is the case. Margus said something similar to me this morning (more specifics needed). I'll see what I can find out and post again. Thank you!

Shawn, the reason the XL1S video doesn't look very well on the big screen is due to the extreme post-production processes which Soderbergh foisted upon it. It's not "out-of-the-box" at all, but heavily dumbed down. See this thread: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2870

The Chateau

I've heard of a DV feature coming out soon. Its called, "The Chateau." Distributed by IFC. Produced by Greenstreet Films (NYC) and Forensic Films.

You can view the trailers on the movie sites.

I am planning on seeing it. From the trailer it looks good.

I'll find out what it was shot with soon.


Feature Creators, we have work to do!


Cheers!
