The makeup and overall look reminded me of an H.R. Geiger piece.
Without the nasty teeth that is:).

That was a decent video!

I bet you were pretty stressed for time while you were shooting, (unless the jet belonged to the band?).

If you don't mind suggestions for shots, I have a couple, both from a photographer's point of view, and from a bass players point of view.

You need more bass player!!!!!!!!

Just kidding. It is definately a plus to show what the members of the band look like, perhaps try using more close-ups. The low angle shots were neat, I would of liked to of seen some over-head shots as well though. And the main thing to remember is don't use a shot, just for the sake of using a shot. You will see in most videos, justification for using a shot. Example: show the guitar player during a guitar solo, show the drummer when he/she does a cool fill, and always show the vocalists when he/she starts singing, and during the choruses.

Just my two cents... well, one cent anyway.

I did not get enough night video of the F-18's taking off or flying, it is hard and they were getting ready for a DET to Miami - I shot this on their weekend off. Yes the jet belongs to the US Navy and it was shot on a Naval Base. I was VERY limited with time and use of the aircraft. They did invite me out to shoot whatever I wanted during the day but i cant use that daytime stuff. I was stuck with using what I had of the band.

the problem was by the time we got our low shots, the sun was completely set and the sky was black. I did not have a second day to shoot. I was forced to make do with literally three entire takes - out of about 20 or so!

The bas player was bummed because I didn't get a lot of him on their last live show lol.. I made up for it..

For those of you who weren't able to get your hands on a copy of the magazine, I've scanned it. You can read it here: (Check in the press section.)

Question on linking Lady X


I run a website and I wanna link to Lady X episodes. Someone
told me that I'm _not_ allowed to link directly to the download
site (i.e. http://www.../theater/e09/episode_09.shtml) only to
the main site Is that right? I mean I don't
want to hotlink any .mov file, I talk about the download page.

If thats true and it _is_ forbidden, I would really like to know the
reason since if you put in keywords lady+x+episode+09 at Google
you'll get excact the same URL I'm not allowed to link to (i.e.
http://www.../theater/e09/episode_09.shtml) as result no. 1.

Background: I have a link to the Lady X main site on my links page
but it would be nice to have the other links listed as an overview
of movies I played in.

Have a great day everyone.

If you can dream it, you can do it. --Walt Disney

No problem with linking directly to any page at Lady X.

When we first started up, the site was designed with frames which made direct linking impossible. Now the frames have been removed, so feel free to link to anything.

P.S. Let us know the URL of the page(s) linking to us and we'll list it in the "News" section.

Thanks for posting the article. I saw the trailer a while back, so I was familiar with your work. Excellent job on the film (and the article).

Charlotte Sometimes Screening Washington D.C.

A friend asked me to post this info about his new movie Charlotte Sometimes...

Dear Washington D.C. Area Friends,

Thanks to some key reviews and two Independent Spirit Award nominations,
“charlotte sometimes” is being released in theaters STARTING THIS FRIDAY,

It's been 10 months since the D.C. Asian Pacific Film Festival's screening
of my debut feature, "charlotte sometimes." It was an honor and a
homecoming for me (I spent 5 years in the D.C. area as a kid, and my parents
have lived here since 1990), as well as a sold-out and fun-filled event.

Now I'm back for the Washington, D.C. for Friday’s premiere at the historic
Avalon Theatre, followed by a reception at the new D.C. location of Cafe
Asia. All the details are included below. I’d love to see all of you
there, and please forward this to friends and help spread the word.

It promises to be quite an evening -- the 7 o’clock hour screening will be
followed by a Q/A session, and if you’re hungry, yummy food at Café Asia.
See you on the 22nd!!!!

Yours truly,
Eric Byler (writer/director of "charlotte sometimes"

W A S H I N G T O N , D. C. P R E I M I E R E
Friday, August 22nd
7 o’clock hour screening (exact time TBA)
Avalon Theatre
5612 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20015-2604
(202) 966-6000
**director in person opening night, 8/22 and all day 8/23

Followed by Dinner hosted by APA Film and writer/director Eric Byler at

Cafe Asia DC (new location)
1720 I Street, NW
Washington, DC 20006

Directions from Avalon Theatre to Café Asia (new location):

1: Start out going Southeast on CONNECTICUT AVE NW toward NORTHAMPTON ST NW.
4.79 miles
2: CONNECTICUT AVE NW becomes 17TH ST NW. 0.08 miles
3: Turn RIGHT onto I ST NW/ EYE ST NW. 0.02 miles
Total Estimated Time: Total Distance: 4.89 miles 12 minutes

To view trailer and other cool stuff:

Official website:

"Every once in a while I go to see a movie, out of maybe 400 movies I see in
a year, that with its authority, and its mood, and its tone, and its
tension, simply captures you; totally absorbs you. That's what CHARLOTTE
SOMETIMES did to me...."

"...A tiny film that reflects a large talent! ...Like [Eric] Rohmer,
Mr.Byler keeps his camera at a discreet distance from his actors, declining
the easy emotional emphasis of close-ups in favor of the complex interaction
of two actors sharing the same frame, communicating through glances and
gestures rather than words."

"...Every image is charged with wit, significance and emotion. A work of the
utmost subtlety and perception, it marks the outstanding feature debut of
writer-director Eric Byler, who understands the power of the implicit and
the virtues of simplicity and economy."

It's an intriguing story.

Just as intriguing are the technical aspects of how it looks.

For all of you who are interested in that "film look" from video equipment, this is something I highly recommend seeing.

Check out the website for other screenings.

Hi Agus,

I'm really glad you liked the movie! Believe it or not, we didn't use ANY post effects at all....the movie the way you saw it was raw DV...the look was all lighting. We did however use a soft fx filter for our XL1s (mostly to just soften out the video.) Frame mode was also used, and our frame rate was 29.97fps.
