The Dental Assistant

This is a short film I just completed. I put it online for a short time to show around and get some feedback. It's about a woman who falls in love with a man with less than perfect hygeine. I'd thought I'd share it here since previous to becoming a fan of mini-DV, I did everthing in film.

This isn't quite the final cut (what ever cut is the final cut).
3 Things are left to do.

a. Color correction
b. Pending rights on the music
c. Running it all thru Magic Bullet

Be Brutal.

Here is the site for it:

The Glove (digital short film)

Hi all,

Been a long-time visitor to the DV Community and wanted to share this short that I worked the visual effects for (hopefully I'm posting in the correct area)

"The Glove" (11mins)
http://www.ifilm.com/filmdetail?ifilmid=2473802&cch=

Just a little background....
- We used 2 XL1 cams and 1 GL2 (just for one pickup shot..)
- Crew was about 12 people, 4 actors (all unpaid)
- Budget was about $4,500 (mostly for food, locations)
- Total production time (from pre-production to final DVD pressing) was about 15 months.
- About 7 days of shooting (including setup, tear-down, green-screen shots)
- Combustion 2 was used for majority of visual effects (there were over 35+ FX shots)
- Editing on Premiere
- We had an EXCELLENT gaffer that really made our film look better than it should.
- No post effects were added to footage (some scenes were color corrected however)
- This was our first short film.

I'd appreciate any comments/questions on the short. Links to the visual effects are below as well as the official web site. The only thing I can't really answer are camera settings and lighting questions (since I wasn't in charge of those areas) however on our XL1's we used the 3X wide angle lens, 16x IS II lens and the 16X manual zoom lens (for our one focus pull shot).

HAHAAHAHAHA, that was awesome dude.

Not only was the shooting/editing excellent, but I loved the story, overclocking and gaming, heh, I do plenty of both.

The guy who did the lighting did a amazing job from what I can see, so was everything else, from the acting to the camera movements, the visual effects were great too.

Great stuff.

Excellent stuff. The lighting was superb. Looked like film rather than DV. Thumbs up!

I wished for a moment that I could go back in time and erase this message, but I'll live with it standing as a test to humility.

One take Music Video

Hey guys...

I worked on this video with director Gi young Rhee and it has just been posted.

http://www.eassemblyline.net/01/music%20videos.html#

We shot using three cameras.... XL1 shooting in "frame mode," DVX shooting in 24p normal, and the VX2000 shootin in normal interlace. The set-up for this video was intense so the entire body of this video was shot in one take. The main character was covered in wax and had tubes connected to his body with a latex vest type thing. He had to peel it off during the song so multiple takes were not possible. This was shot for a contest so it gave the director a chance to be a bit more experimental. The video is not for everyone, but I think it turned out quite well and is very interesting.

Some behind the scenes pics can be seen here:

http://www.eassemblyline.net/01/emergestills.html

Becuase of the extremely fast cutting, this video didnt make it through the encode very well. But its good enough to check out so let me know what you all think.

I have a video in post right now that i directed and it was shot on the new SDX900 (I know people have been dying to see some footage from this new camera), it will be posted soon.

Kind of neat, yet kind of disturbing... It looked good, especially with the different cameras and different modes.

I thought it was pretty cool.

But then again, I am a slighty warped individual.

"Few" framegrabs from a stupid/comedy video about cats I am doing.

I was bored and I thought "why not do a stupid video about cats, since theres about 12 of them out in my driveway everyday?" So I am doing one where it's (probably me) a dude that looks crazy talking about cats (interview style), just describing what cats like to do and all this other stuff, and then it would be mainly composed of animal planet channel style footage of cats doing stuff (sleeping, eating, pooping...etc), some of which I shot today.

So, here's a few (many) framegrabs of some of the video.

The low resolution of my $350 camera is apparent, but other then that, the video looks awesome. When I shoot more I'm going to try to find a way to use a tripod head on the ground or something, since all this video I shot was handheld laying on the ground, it's shake free though. You'll probably notice some bad focusing in a few (along with interlacing artifacts) but it's hard focusing with a scroll wheel and a terrible black and white viewfinder while laying on the ground. :D

"Color corrected" in Vegas Video 4.0.

Ah, cats. Gotta love 'em. Thanks for sharing the frames. I love #10, and 6. Gorgeous everything. And 9 is right in there, too. What's with the ears on #11?

Good video idea, too. My sister in Kansas wants me to do a companion video for a book she's trying to finish about cats. Would be loads of fun for me if she ever gets her part done.
