Looks like a good show, I'll watch, BTW. I agree Donkey Kong is one of the best, I'm curious as to what else made the list. The editing looks good, fast paced, fit's the video game style. Nice job.

Thanks, Mark.

The show was a bit on the painful side to get out the door so hopefully it looks better than we felt when we finally put it to tape. ;)

Hi there,

Not bad at all...nice shots in there. One big mistake i ve seen...using the zoom on a tripod(or in every case for that matter...) is a big no-no. It really scream amateur unless it's perfectly done (which is really rare...).

Keep up the good work.

Phil

Thank you for taking the time to view the short and make comments. I really appreciate it.

I must preface my reply by stating that every aspect of the production was done by myself so without a crew or actors it would be near impossible to produce something with a professional sheen. The script was written with this autonomy in mind.

As I stated above I am truly grateful for the comments but it would have been nice to have a more balanced critique rather than just commenting on negatives. Otherwise, it gives the impression that the piece has no value which I certainly don't believe is the case.

I would be very interested in what elements of the sound required work.

Sorry Mark! I didn't have time to write a detailed critique at the time.

I'll have another look tonight or tomorrow...

Chris!

A bit too long for what it has to say, IMHO.

That was great. Excellent use of DOF on a 1/3 chip camera. Pacing was good, and I though the lighting and contrast looked great on the closeups.

You should try messing around with selective channel blending for black and white. For example, the wide forest shots you might use just the red or blue channel for the grayscale image. (you may have already done that on some shots)

Are you looking for something with more spoken word or more of a music background?

Try the moving image archive on www.archive.org. They have lots of old public information films that are in the public domain. Be warned, many of the feature films that are listed as in the Public Domain are such in the US only - I got caught out when wanting to use sound sound from an old British film for a short. when I double checked, I found the rights were NOT P.D. in the UK.

The old Information films should be fine though. Don't think many of them are in Dutch though...

Otherwise, why not just record a production meeting and put some Garage Band or Acid loops over the top, and filter it to make it sound like TV?

New Short: The Day Our Parent's Died (part 1)

tell me what you think. Its sot so much a narrative short film as it is a look at two people who explore the fine line of fate and coincidence. Official Selection in the 5th Annual American Gem Short Screenplay Competition. Please pardon the low quality, this was shot on a Panasonic DVX and has a significantly higher resolution.
Starring: Sam Cori, Joey Scoma-Bertran
written and directed by Austin R. Hartman

and tell your friends.

cheers,
Austin
