Trailer for "Accidental Machines" (an inline video)

Accidental Machines, the new team video from Mindgame, is a unique blend of underground inline street skating and mockumentary storytelling. Join skaters Dustin Latimer, Aaron Feinberg, Chris Farmer, Brian Aragon, Billy O'Neill, Don Bambrick, and Ben Schwab as they work to finish their sections as co-owner, Shane Coburn, struggles to keep the company afloat long enough to release the DVD.

Shot with a range of DV and HDV cams from all over the world, Accidental Machines, is a gritty 56 min. montage of blood, sweat, and tears (of joy, of course). Written, directed, and edited by Shane Coburn.

White flashes

Very nice!
How did you get the variations in the white flashes in the piece?

Haha! Great job! It kept me entertained. Good choice of music, and great job on the editing. What did you use to edit and make the music?
Very nice job on the dolly/Steadycam. What did you use to get these shots, and what tripod?

Keep up the great work!

My two cents:

Overall it was pretty good, but I have thoughts that may improve it much more. Really like the opening, especially the editing. However, after the opening credits and scene it begins to slowdown, too much, to where I found myself not paying attention anymore. Still not sure what it is about, accept anger. BUT BUT, this can definitely be improved to something really good.

1. SOUND. Improve the sound, even if you have to do ADR. Sound is SO important and right now it has "student film" sound. Make it crisper. This is be the first step to make this much better.

2. EDITING. Cut in 1/2. The whole beginning promise a nice cool little FAST paced short, but immediately after lags. You can easily cut it in 1/2 and still keep the idea. Keep the fast passed editing up throughout the film, with cool zooms, pans, transitions, jumpcuts etc.

You will end up with a much better short. Right now you have a real quick interesting fast opening and then a real slow "rest of the short." Anyway, that;s all I have right now. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR PROJECT.

Okay, man, you caught me in such a good mood. I loved this right up to the cereal part. If you cut the cereal part and the muffin under the ice cubes and come up with an ending, this will really rock. I was so laughing. ROY!!!!

Couldn't agree more. After the fast paced opening my attention seemed to drop as well. Speed up a bit from then on. Improve sound by using better suited mics (this sounded like the one on your camcorder) and keep the background music running to 'filter' sound imperfections out.

Very cool steadicam/flycam shots. I like the motuion in your shots. What I like a lot less is the framing you end on with those shots (e.g. your main characters half in and half out of frame in total shots).

Cheesy pop song video

OK, this particular song is really not to my taste but I was paid a modest sum to make this video and, to be honest, we had an absolute blast shooting it.

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oid=1447728753

The video reflects the light and airy poppiness of the song so don't expect too much in the way of deep and meaningful hidden imagery! It was commissioned by the very wealthy father of the performing duo as a fun project for his offspring to get involved in. I'm doing some corporate stuff for him so how could I refuse??

It was shot on one (long) cold October day (with the exception of a re-shoot of the opening restaurant scene, caused by stupidity on my part where I turned up the gain for some unknown reason!!). We used a Canon XL2 and the whole thing was edited in Sony Vegas 7 with the exception of one very brief chromakey shot which I worked on in After Effects. I guess I was editing for about a day in total (with the final render taking the best part of 12 hours on a 3.4GHz, 2Gb RAM pc!). Tons of colour correction!

I'm well aware of the numerous rough edges but to be honest I'm not going to be working on this one any further. The customer is over the moon because they don't need to think about what to get distant relatives for Christmas any more.

Still, this is only my second music video so I would welcome any honest opinions. Always plenty to learn from you guys.

Ian . . .

ps, as you can see, it's hosted on MySpace so quality is at a premium. I recommend you click the button second in from the bottom right to shrink the video to it's original size. Makes it look a lot cleaner, if slightly smaller.

The subject is not something I'd watch, but I sat this one out - short enough and high paced. Nice... Always a gamble if some of the injuries will be lasting, eh? :-)

can I ask did this darken when you uploaded?

It plays as very dark on youtube. a problem I'm having myself at the moment. i was advised to up the gamma before uploading to the net which apparently will help it to retain its original look better... havent done it yet as my editing machine is down but thought I'd pass it on.

Apple Insomnia Film Festival Entry

Hey guys, I probably should have taken the opportunity to post this here a while ago but I didn't think of it until today. I entered the Apple Insomnia 24-hour film contest for students with my brother. We would have had more help but our friends and contacts were just too busy with other projects and schoolwork on the weekend the contest took place, it also didn't help that UNLV had its own 48-hour film contest the weekend before so I don't think they were prepared to do another contest right after the other.

But we worked pretty hard on it and we hope people enjoy it (even though the voice over is a little "blah", it's improvised and edited that way due to lack of time). In any case, here it is:

Yeah, a lot of these guys have had some bad injuries, some resulting in surgeries, etc. One of the riders kept fracturing his foot during fiming and was unable to complete his section...happens. I suppose their lasting effects will depend on each person and how well they take care of themselves as they get older...

That's a nice compliment. Thanks. Even though I don't skateboard, I have followed the video side of that industry off an on over the years. Jeremy Klein always put out great sections, he and Heath Kirchart's section in "The End" being his opus.
