Beautiful pics, Hannes. I thoroughly enjoyed them. Congratulations also on the authentic clothing. Very interesting.

Good luck with the shooting.

my car security commercial

This is something we shot and edited in about 4 or 5 hours one boring summer day. Check it out, and give me a ring if any of you guys are interested in our security service ;D.

small version (1.8 megs)

large version (6.1 megs)

right click either and "save target as" -- encoded with divx 5

I like the idea. Would have liked to see some more violence though. You can never have enough violence... people eat it up. :)

Anyway there seems to be a lot of headroom on both the top and bottom of the screen that could be done away with. Letterboxing it might have helped. Check out this hack job I did really quick to give you an idea:

Click here to see the JPEG

What I did was pan the original image down a bit and then letterbox it. Composition and framing are really important when you want to direct the viewer's attention to something. I found myself looking at the street, mostly. Live and learn! :)

Yeah, I liked the idea too, it was catchy and funny, more voilence would be good, heh.

Was it really shot on a XL1 though? Don't take this the wrong way, but it looks pretty bad if it was. The whole car was pretty much blown out, the sky was unusually dark, and it was pretty noisey, it wasn't the compression either. :D

For future use, you should of either:

1. Had a different (darker) color car.

2. Took the exposure down a bit.

3. Found a different location/shot it when the light source (sun) was in a better position, such as early morning or late evening.

That's great! It's wonderfully simple and pretty damn funny too. It has all the right ingredients to be a real commercial.

Great concept. Do agree with Alex on the exposure/quality issues. Keep up the good work.

The Egg Incident

Here is something we did for fun over two years ago. This is an attempt at random comedy.

Click here to download 31.3 MB Quicktime

I am aware of the overexposure, unsteady camera, dirty lens. But hopefully you'll be entertained by this all the same.

I was wondering if people who download this on a broadband (anything better than dialup, actually) could, in addition to whatever they think about the Quicktime file, tell me what kind of average speeds they were getting for the download and if that comes close to your top-rated speed. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

105kb/sec on a DSL. Got it in less than five minutes. My bandwidth really fluctuates so I can't tell if that is good or not.

Haha that was funny.

Mine spiked at 120k/sec at the start, then slowly went down to around 70-90.

Locus et la Machine - Short film

Hello all DVi and DV enthusiasts! I just finished doing the subtitles for a short film my team and I made back in may for school. It took us maybe 70 hours. We made it in one week.

It's called "Locus et la Machine"

Shot with Panasonic AG-DVX100 NTSC
20 Megs. Quicktime

I like the opening shot, very nice!

Is the flickering in the prison scene editing or was it flickering light? It creates an interesting effect but it's tad overdone IMO.

I love that one shot in the bathroom when he's looking in the mirror and those two guys start fighting. Good eye!

There's a humming in the court scenes, was that an air conditioner or something?

Your composition is great the whole way through. Well done!

<<<-- Originally posted by Alex Taylor : I like the opening shot, very nice!-->>>

Thanks alot! Even though it looks warm, it was shot on a freezing may mourning :)

<<<--Is the flickering in the prison scene editing or was it flickering light? It creates an interesting effect but it's tad overdone IMO.-->>>

That was a flickering light.

<<<-- I love that one shot in the bathroom when he's looking in the mirror and those two guys start fighting. Good eye!-->>>

Thanks :) With the AG-DVX100, it's easy to pull a focus changing shot because it is numerised. You look at your point A and memorize the number then look at point B and memorize it's number... then all you have to do is change from one number to the other.

<<<-- There's a humming in the court scenes, was that an air conditioner or something?-->>>

Unfortunatly, we borrowed the city court for one after noon and we weren't well enough equipped for the audio. You've guessed right, the humming is the air conditioner.

<<<-- Your composition is great the whole way through. Well done! -->>>

I'm glad that you took the time to watch it and enjoyed it! Although the quality of the video on a tv screen is a thousand times better, the story and some shots can be enjoyed on the internet :)

Thanks again, Alex, for your comments and suggestions :) It's good to have critiques around to give advice and opinions so that our movies can get better.
