How stupid is this idea.

How about a DV film festival? This is my thought. Take a few very expensive ads in magazines and such. Have a very low entry fee. Use the money to cover the costs and a cash prize. I could have the local media people (as well as the auidence) judge the videos and and award winners.

Yeah, I know the money thing could be a problem. Money will always be a problem. If the numbers don't add up, everyone gets their fees back and I look like an idiot, again. I'm comfortable with that.

I need to know, what are DV makers looking for in a film festival. Do they want to get feedback and have a chance for their work to be shown? Or are they looking to get "discovered" and rushed off to Hollywood on a flying carpet. I don't want anyone to think I'm going to give them something I can't.

Anything would be a help.

To me, anywhere, where you can show your work to a bunch of people, would be good enough...I don't think many people are expecting much more...

Nothing stupid about this. This will equalize all the entries, to some degree. No more "wow this looks better than all that other crap, cause it's shot on 16/35mm." I don't know if that happens, but I'm sure it does.

I like the idea. However, where would the films... er... movies, be shown and showcased? Internet or live?

What catagories are you going to have and who will be the judges? Develop it alittle more and I think we will have something.
I'm all for it.

Car Music Video I edited...

I participated in a Auto-X event this past weekend and I decided to bring my GL2 along for the ride. Please right-click and save the target as.... Don't stream the clip as it's a big 45 meg file. Comments are welcomed...

Download Right Here
Right-click, save target as.....!

I know it's a huge file for 3 minutes, but it's about the content, not the file size...

Thanks,
Gilbert Xiong

Even on ADSL I'm not gonna download a full 45MB AVI for the sake of it.

Well I did :) and it was entertaining. I bet if you cut out everything except for the faster action bits, and bring it down to about 1 minute, it'd be a lot more fun to watch. Neat footage though.

Made me wanna start hotrodding around in my Jetta...

If you would of encoded with WM9, you could of gotten the same quality, in probably less then half the file size...

Anyway, it was pretty cool. I don't want to start nitpicking, but I will anyway, just for good measure. Some of the shots had the extra-shakey-ness to them, that could be worked on, and I also noticed some handling noise in the audio, other then that it was pretty good.

We used the Studio1 MiniDV Shoulder Brace... But I found that when I was zoomed in 60% then there is no way to stop the shakyness.

Thanks! I'm still a beginner, your comments are appreciated.

It must have been late at night when I looked at it. Don't know why I didn't see it the first time.

Anyway, I just watched the trailer. It does not make me want to buy the movie. The movie looks right up my alley, and I thought about buying it, but the trailer turned me off.
I'd redo the trailer. Instead of showing just flashy scenes, give a little meat of the movie.

It looks really good, and it looks really bad. Just what the doctor ordered. I'll force my wife to watch it. I want to send you a US M.O. for a VHS copy. Please post your mailing address here, with total amount I should include ($20 + Shipping to Vancouver Canada). Hey, I'm not kidding. I collect these types of movies for my wife to watch. I also take her for those free "B" movies. It makes her crazy. :)

Besides, a few minutes ago I got outbid for a $30 lens on e-bay---like during the last minute before the auction ended. Oh well....
