Smile, what a fascinating work !

The bundle of painters brushes was a nice establishing touch. Given the enchanting piano score a smooth fade transition from brushes to aerial shot might have fit well. Instead it seemed more like a cut from brushes to aerial.
It still worked for me.

The theme of Art's influence was well illustrated by the score and images.

Really liked it.

Any behind the scenes or Directors notes you can share on the making of this superb Riley Harmon Short would be welcome.

The time lapse work was interesting.

well done....it was definitely one of my favorites of the finalist entries.

I agree with everything Ken said. I really liked it. Seemed very smooth and maintained my interest the entire time.

Awesome!

Director's note:

It's magic baby. I found a stick on the ground, and lit it on fire. It just so happened that the stick was near some factory waste and it burned magic colors. (Most likely from the chemicals) BTW: The children laughing in the background of the bubbles were recorded live. They were high from the chemical fumes burning in the air.

quick question: do these video overlays automatically overy lay to your video, or do you have to key out the black?

thanks a lot

Short film from H1-by students

Below is a 5 min short film shot on the XL H1 at a seminar I taught a couple weeks ago. The students shot nearly everything here over the course of 5 hours. 48 hour film festival? Hah...see what you can do in 5. :-)

Anyways, here it is...

If you live near Raleigh and want to attend a class, let me know. There will be another one happening in May.

Thanks.

Kevin

Fun piece! Since the artistic talent behind the camera was more on display than the H1, I moved the thread from the XL-H1 forum to "DV For The Masses" where it will get a wider audience.

Whatever you want, Pete, but people have been on the H1 boards waiting for something to see. This is it.

We generally keep links in camera forums when they illustrate useability, or a particular capability or limitation of the camera, and move links that are posted primarily to share artistry to DV For The Masses.

Because this is a complete short film that is streamed at web-friendly resolution, I felt it fit into the latter category rather than the former. If something specific about the XL-H1 is demonstrated, let me know and I can move it back for further discussion. Otherwise, it'll get a more viewers -- including the XL-H1 forum crowd who browse around DVinfo or click "New Posts when they log in -- here in "Masses."

This kind of move is a routine thing for us and I hope that it helps folks understand how we do the housecleaning to keep DVinfo organized and a good technical resource.

Its a composite setting. In Final Cut Pro I just composite it over the footage and select "add" as the composite mode. Its pretty much the same thing as keying out the black though.

First attempt making a reel

I've made an intro to my reel, I'm not sure if your really suppose to do this, so i was wondering if anyone could direct me? I was planning on having an intro about a minute long and then go into some work samples for about 7-9 minutes. Is this a good outline?

Heres my into:

Generation: 60Hz

"Part of what makes working for Current so exciting is watching people experiment with short form non-fiction content. Aline Allegra, our director of viewer created content, pointed out this piece, Generation: 60Hz, as a perfect example of Current's mission in action. The producer is from Shawnee, OK, and offers his take on the Internet generation. He experimented with rapid fire images that represent what it feels like to grow up in the information age. We optioned it for air and encourage all of you to push the limits of how you tell your story."

I knew all those years sitting at a computer wasting time would be useful.

riley, this is so accurate, it's frightening. the 18 and 20 year olds in my life are exactly characterized.

you could really be a voice for this generation, which seems to have so much chatter and yet, paradoxically, so little voice.

i'm definitely sending this around to the kids i know.

funny mock infomercial

Someone posted this in another forum. The poster and his buddy made it. I thought it was pretty funny.

Right click, "save as"

Race Patrol (Green Bench Productions)

This is a skit I made in response to the amount of people today who think that being a certain race means acting a certain way. It's a satire of the unwritten rules of racial behavior in America.
