A lot of it looks really quite nice. Loved the coloring on the narrative part.

I know it was deliberate but the lens flare coupled with all the hand held shots of the band were distracting.

Unrelated to how the video looked...The song was okay but the lead singer was awful...awful awful awful.

Nice looking footage. I've been waiting to see more XL2 imagery with a 35mm adapter.

Damn fine work in my opinion! Suddenly I get a rush of joy in my body and soul, knowing that I am about to purchase an XL2 PAL with mini35-adapter myself =)

But yeah.. the singer sucked =)

great job mate...
I love fastfast cuts, and this one have dozens of them.
mini35? well, image is really great...
maybe a main character is a liitle bit overacting at some points, but, it's just me - trying to give at least some criticsm... :)

Nice indie video for a forgettable band. I like the cuts and colors, lots of good shots in there. Try some more focus moves next time, take full advantage of that shallow DOF.

Well I think it is perfect =) Great job, man =) Inspiration comes a'flowing ^.^

Since I am planning on getting the same gear (i.e. XL2 PAL and Mini35) I was also wondering what lenses you use and if the lenses show the "appropriate" image when you switch the camera to 16:9? No complications there?

yeah, you can shoot in 16x9 and their is no problems.. its exactly right through the viewfinder while shooting. The lenses used in that vid are a 24mm at f2.8, 35mm f1.8, 50mm f1.4, 105mm f 2.0.

hope this helps.

great video, the singer does need some work, he does have a good scream though.
