Z1 Short Film Done, Criticism Needed

After about 3 months of reading various sites on the Internet, lurking around this forum (a lot) and playing with my Z1 and accessories I produced with some friends and colleagues, a 5 minute short film to submit to the Howard Stern Film Fest* and to in a way, graduate from "Internet film school".

Now that I have completed this project I would really like the community of DVi to give me their opinions and criticisms of the piece and hopefully answer some questions I had about some weird abnormalities in the picture. Here's my first question, what file format (or conversions/codecs) is the ideal format for me to be showing this to ya'll?

*I would have done DVC but Howard had bigger prizes, a couple extra days and someone had a script.

That was really good, especially for your first music video. I love the opening shot really good. I like some of the colour correction better than others but non of it was bad. Although the one shot where you had a lot of grain, maybe you were using a letus and turned the power off for that? I don't know but I didn't like that. Other than that it was good, I thought it told the story well and kept my attention.

for a 5 minute piece, mpeg 1, a nice cross platform format.

QUESTION: wmvHD video distribution via The Web

wmvHD is a beautiful way to distribute good, HD content via the Web...
The codec looks great when the video has been lit right at princ-photog


QUESTION: Why do you guys think it hasn't really caught on with the mainstream web public?

Is it...

1) File size still too big?

2) Computers too slow to play wmvHD files?--- or Monitor/Resolution to small to really grasp the HD concept?

3) Microsoft hasn't marketed the concept/codec enough that people know what it actually is?

4) Not enough video producers shooting in HD/HDV in order to offer the wmvHD content?

Any other ideas??? What do you think??

It is April, 2006 and I daily search the Web for wmvHD content and I am amazed that there is so little of it. In fact...It's mostly still promos and bullcrap.

1 hour of wmvHD would be about 2gigs file size... I think HDTV connoseurs would have no problem waiting to download 2gigs... I routinely download 1gig to 5gig files... Like Ron Popeal says "Just Set IT and Forget IT!"

It can't be the cost of bandwidth...as it may have been in the past... Bandwidth is cheap... I pay about 10 cents per gig of bandwidth transferred... so... sending an hour of video out would cost me 20 pennies.

Look forward to hearing everyone's opinions...

This has come up many times before in different ways. Their may not be one specific answer to your questions but this is what I know.

I don't think filesize is the issue. Pretty easy for a poor computer to store plenty of wmv content. Computer speed is a bit of an issue, joe average still doesn't know what a video card is and why he needs one that isn't intergrated.

MS has marketed WMV for online paid content, just not to well.

The last question is what i would think is a part of the big issue.

-To show HD you need to capture HD, hdv is still in its infancy.
-Connection bandwidth for mass distribution is a lot and no company execpt blizzard wants to jump on the torrent style bandwagon
-DRM, WMV drm requires all sorts of money. Like a server and a someone who knows what they are doing, which is harder than it sounds
-My final one is the HD difference. Most people can't tell the difference between broadcast HD and a DVD and only sees marginal improvement over broadcast digital.

I suggested methods to avoid DRM before by having a dedicated streaming server that you could use like movie tickets, buy it and watch as much as you want for a 2 month window for little more than the price of a movie ticket.

But I also think that people who make movies and people who would put them on the web have a gap in thinking. Movie makers whan HD, 2k, 4k and film and they want the experience to be just that BIG. People who have experience in putting video on the web anywhat costeffectively know streaming and low bandwidth. Most places online barely offer more than 300kbit/s so if someone was to approach these exsisting companies that is what they offer, at most 700kbit with 320x240 or not much better.

The other option is iTunes but they won't jump on the bandwagon of HD anytime soon I don't think and won't even look at indie movies or small time from what i've heard from music biz. You need a company that offers multiple titles to negotiate with them it seems.

Just my take. Someday if I ever make a half decent film I'm gonna setup a log in and streaming setup even if it is a short just for a test.

I would have to go for H264 as it renders higher quality pictures at smaller file sizes.

Did MS get VC1 (wmvHD) included in the spec for HD-DVD? I know Sony rejected it for BlueRay, supporting only Mpeg-2 for the time being. Thats for commercial releases, not data disks.

If they didn't they really screwed up... wmvHD is the only good distribute for the web.

Microsoft also made a HUGE F'in Mistake by not allowing the Xbox 360 to simply play wmvHD files... They could have easily had this as a feature and we would have had a huge distribution channel overnight.

Cory, thanks fot the comments. The grain was intentional, some of it is static. I questioned doing it because some people would think it was a mini35 adapter not spinning. You're the first to notice it, so
congratulations! lol I probably should not have done that, but I liked it. Its basically a static overlay, kinda weird but I like it.
Wes, the flashed are actually Artbeats' Film Clutter. You can find them at:
