Blood, Milk and Sky

Folks, I shot his six months ago. It's been a pet project, so it took a while to do all of the post work. Please check it out and comment, good or bad, I don't care. Of course, I hope you like it.

When I started, I had no idea that Rob Zombie had written the words.

It was shot in five hours. I used three 5DM2's, one was on a Stedicam. All of the audio was done in post, and the difference between the raw footage and the resulting video is tremendous. I will post a video that shows this later.

If anyone has questions, I'm happy to answer them.

Before anyone asks, the Stedicam camera had a 14mm lens from Russia. It's not the sharpest thing around, but I like the look of it. We could have swapped lenses on that rig, but we didn't really have time to re-balance the rig.


Cheers,

Sterling.

Re: Blood, Milk and Sky

First thing I noticed was the sound design. Great job on the creepy voice and the ambient noises too. The little girl was a good voice actor too.

As for the rest, there seemed to be a lack of story, which is really the only thing that counts in any film. I felt like it was just too many shots of the zombie walking around and not enough progression in the shots. Each shot should build on the one before it.

Re: Blood, Milk and Sky

Trent, thanks for you thoughts. I don't disagree with you, but this was a spur of the moment project. I happened to have some extra gear from a "real" shoot, and I thought I'd take advantage of having the equipment. This came together in a day. All I could think of at the time was about a lonely zombie wandering around the streets of LA, so with no time for real prep work or to write a script, I Googled 'zombie poems' and up cam the lyrics to a White Zombie song. Of course, I didn't know the origin of the words, until I got into production.

This was serious run and gun work. Shot in five hours, in the middle of the night.

It may be lacking in plot, but I enjoyed playing with the visuals. I will be posting another version so people can see how much was done in post.

Cheers,

Sterling
