I haven't done any color correcting yet, mainly because I don't have a TV that I trust, and I figure that I'm as liable to make it worse as fix it. Odd that you found the in-the-stall shots too bright. They seem way to dark to me. I do plan to color correct the footage before releasing an official version.

Very well done! I think this was probably the best story, although it really makes you wonder what side Lady X is on. Shot well, and even acted nicely, the only flaw was some out of synch dialogue. That may have been due to compression and playback. Good job!

Hey, thanks!

I had some issues with audio, so the synching may have been my fault, or maybe the compression may have made it a tad worse.

I'm glad it made you question who's good/who's bad. I really was hoping people would do that... much like current politics and the situation in the nation today. Being the first US LadyX, I wanted to get across the feelings of polarization spreading in our country today, with everyone questioning everyone else's intentions.

Thanks again!

Just saw the movie. It has an interesting idea, but it just ain't
my kind of movie. So therefor it was a bit hard to watch. Didn't
like the lighting...

I was going to watch your short until I saw it was in Real format.
As a lot of people the Real software is going nowhere near my
system. This together with the fact that you have to be a
triggerstreet member is probably hindering people to see it.

Is it possible to host it somewhere in another format like QuickTime?

I think there are a couple of people here that had their documentaries
bought so to speak. Did you try the search here?

Thanks for taking the time to watch it. What was it about the lighting that bothered you? What are your kind of movies?

Well, the lightning looked like no lighting was used at all. Some
scenes washed out with too low contrast (not that much difference
between the highlights and the darker areas).

I never understood or enjoyed action figures so that easily gets
into the way of watching such a short (no offense to you!).
Personally I'm quite fond of thriller kind of work I think [or just
plain dumb action <g>]

Does this answer your questions?

I love the cell phone salesman, the scenes in the car are great! A bit overexposed though. Also I think you could shorten the bit where the rich aristocrat's wife is talking about the action figure, it went on far too long IMO.

Hey,
I've been having trouble with this video on triggerstreet. I sent in a hi and lo bandwith version. both realplayer rendered with Vegas. The low I did with the 56k selection and the hi with 512k. I could watch the lo, but the quality was pretty bad. I couldn't watch the 512k version with my dial-up connection. I went to my parents house and watched the hi on their computer with cable and it worked fine. Recently, I got DSL. When I tried to watch the 512k video, it wouldn't work, it was just still images with audio. According to some of the reviews, other people had the same problem. I guess my dsl isn't quite fast enough.

Anyway, on to my new problem. I made a quicktime version for you and put it on my geocities website. Then I got a message saying my data transfer limit was exceeded or something. Oh well, here is the link, if the page comes back up maybe you'll be able to view it.

http://www.geocities.com/freakyfamil...ts/shorts.html

By the way, triggerstreet wants videos rendered at 15fps. The only choice I see for the higher quality versions in Vegas is 30fps. Is there anyway to get it to 15?

Thanks

Thanks for putting it up. I thought the concept was nice, but the
execution was not very professional looking. Can you tell us a
bit more about the story and shooting etc.?

In Vegas you can set the framerate for a real movie in the following way:

File -> Render As -> select RealMedia -> Custom -> Audiences -> Edit

In this screen you can fill in your framerate amongst other things.
Might be wise to base it on one of the presets you want to use.
