I'm thinking of adding "battle noise" in the background behind the music...

Good or bad idea? I'll try it and see how it sounds.

Thanks,

Mike

All right you asked. Looking at the intro I’m guessing you made it in some version of AE. First it’s to long for my taste; you should either go for more of a fast pace intro or slow intro. If you want it fast paced the moving lights aren’t enough. At least not right now. If anything in any kind of motion graphics you always have to keep things new and fresh.

If you want a slow dramatic intro, the movements of the lights are too sporadic. There ought to be a more thought out balance of where they move. I know I’m kinda bashing you, but from the look of the intro, your new to whatever program your using. So keep at it, either make it slow pace or fast. If slow the music is really what’s going to carry it, if fast always keep new things movin.

If you are to leave it as is I would make one suggestion, during the whole clip the lights are always moving, but as soon as the lights stop it fades out. Either push the fade back or make the movement a little longer, but keep the lights moving during the fade. Its long enough that everyone gets the title, no need for the lights to stop over it. It will look smother if they move during the fade.

My cent and ½

Great advice... I had planned on making it shorter so I will probably speed things up. I was also wondering about how to end it, I'll try your suggestion and see how it looks.

Yes, I'm new to After Effects. :)

Yeah, I liked it too. Experimental is not really my thing, but you had some nice imagery going there. Reminded me of Steven Soderbergh for some reason. Nice work.

I liked it too, but I perosnally would have cut it down in 1/2 to get it to the next level.

Halloween Movie...

So here's a Halloween movie that we made for a competition.

http://www.billsfilms.com/storage/Halloween_Small.mov

^Right Click, Save As^ 32 MB, Quicktime, Sorenson 3, almost 9 minutes.

Made in less than 36 hours, in the freezing cold night.

Tell me what you think.

I thought it was hilarious. I love your logo. Not sure about the music in the opening. Maybe change that.

How did you do the opening logo? Very cool! :)

Looks like you guys had fun...

It was a little long, and some of the edits need work...
Not bad though.

I made this for a 36 hour film competition over at theforce.net. I wrote it, shot it, and captured it in one day, and then yesterday, I edited it, and rendered it out as well. The night we shot it was FREEZING cold, we were really rushed, and the daylight faded faster than expected. Good times.

The logo was made and animated in 3ds Max. Yeah, the movie is kinda long, but it had to tell everything that I wanted it to. I fixed some of the jumpy edits, and rendered out a 480p version, which will be uploaded soon.

Thanks for all of the comments, and yes, we did have fun.

Oh, it was shot with a Sony HDR-HC3, and edited in Vegas 7.

Generally speaking it was easy to follow.

The birds were too loud and repetitive.

The rumble drew attention because it was the only sound in the room.

We're using it http://dvestore.com/dvgeartalk.html
The new Publishpod from Brightcove is pretty snazzy. It's software that compresses your final movie into .flv and automatically uploads it your Brightcove account.

It's all still very new and a few features need to be worked on but everything is still moving along in the right direction with Brightcove- this stuff is revolutionary!
