Only cinetone and contrast?! That's it?! Man, I always do that with my FX1 and it doesn't look like that at all. Your colors are so saturated and you don't have that harsh video look. Frankly, I've seen a lot of FX1/Z1 footage and yours is among the most film-looking. Level with us, Kyle. Share the love, brother. What's your secret potion?

Two Online Docs

I just posted a couple of new projects on my website.

1. Psalm 5: Nicaraguan poet and Sandinista revolutionary Ernesto Cardenal reads his rewrite of the Old Testament Psalm.

2. Why Are You Here?
An experiment in an interactive, online mini-documentary on the May Day immigrant rights protests.
http://www.prolefeedstudios.com/cata...ay/mayday.html

Nothing fancy editing-wise, but I thought it might be of interest. Comments welcome.

Yes, this does look very nice for video. Nice editing skills and there are some great shots. I admit though, it got dull about half way through. You need something more to captivate out attention other than editing and the picture quality, the content. The one liners were obvious and it was stuff we pretty much already know, but I can understand how that isn't your fault.

well I dont shoot at night or indoors. I cut a lot of the crap out of my videos. you watch about 5% of the footage. that be my guess. also I zoom in all the way for DOF

i liked it ... and i liked that i was surprised at the ending ..
the streaming quality is a bit low so it's difficult to tell but i would have to say the lighting is so-so ..
IMO the light needs to be shaped ( as in you add light to a shot then you need to start taking light away in areas ( shape it - using nets , flags , barn doors, black wrap ) .. again it's a hard to make a call but the light seemed harsh ( could be just the low quality stream, you light try "opal " gel on your lights ? ) .. there's hard light and then harsh light ... i liked the shadows on the walls of the band (members) ..

Short Suspense/Horror

Here's a little something that took about 10 days from concept to finished DVD, called Night of the Headsman. I referenced the hospital hallway scene from Exorcist 3, it always scares me. Shot with Canon XL2 and Pro Mist 1/2 filter. Hope you enjoy it. http://web.mac.com/esquared14/iWeb/Site/Welcome.html

Thanks for the reply. I don't know too much about lighting (this was my first attempt). The indoor stuff was the hardest to light as we were only using flood lights and plain light bulbs in homemade box lights (wooden frames with a metal around the bulb for reflection. We also used a single photo light (can't remember what it was now) The outdoor stuff of the band was lit by a 500W halogen lamp, a 250W halogen, and a 100W flood. Like I said, no budget. How was the editing and cinematography and editing?

If this is indeed your first attempt and considering the lack of resources as far as lighting gear, this video is impressive. You're on the right track. I like the way your laid out the story. As far as the music, well, I've already tasted it, swallowed it, digested it and evacuated it---in the '90's! Sorry, I happen to be a music producer too, so i couldn't resist commenting on the music.

Way too long. You really only need 20-30 seconds maximum for this type of project. After the text showed up it was just the police lights for like a minute which I really don't get. The font design and texture for the title 'swat' was corny looking, and the name itself is very generic. I think it's a good concept and I am not sure if you are going to cut it down or whatnot, but those are my opinions.

My best advice would be to keep it simple, it is a great way to start a feature film but unless you really know what you're doing it shouldn't be so elaborate.

Why 3 minutes of music to sustain 25 seconds of visual? Go to another shot about 4 beats after the "T" disappears or end it. Liked the smokey background and the soft focus rooflights, not too keen on the font and colour used for the title graphic. Strongly suggest you reduce the bass substantially in the music - a strong base line is one thing, having all the melody completely lost underneath the bass is something else again.
