Here is a site with a long list of "films" shot with various video sources that have had theatrical release: ://www.nextwavefilms.com/ulbp/bullfront.html

They indicate what format was used for shooting the film. For example, they note correctly that "ATANARJUAT:The Fast Runner" was shot on DigiBeta, not DV. Of note, is that it was NTSC DigiBeta, rather than the highly touted PAL.

But watch out if you are looking for rentals. For instance, if you rent the VHS of "The Anniversary Party," you will be looking at the original video version before it was transfered to film. You will be very disappointed. But you were never meant to see this version, instead, rent the dvd to see what the filmmakers had in mind for release. I'm betting that other "films" suffered the same fate in the home market.

(BTW, I would have sworn "Timecode" was shot on DigiBeta. But the list indicates DV.)

Are you saying that there is no naration? If so, do you use background music? For your productions to be commercially viable you will need to write a script and have narration to go with your visuals.

FINAL

Directed by: Campbell Scott
Produced by: Mary Frances Budig, Steve Dunn, Campbell Scott

Website: http://www.cowboypictures.com/final/

FINAL is the story of Bill Tyler (Denis Leary), a man who mysteriously wakes up a patient in a Connecticut state psychiatric facility. Unable to remember how he got there, Bill seems sure of only one thing: that he has been cryogenically frozen and revived 400 years in the future. Ann Johnson (Hope Davis) is the dedicated therapist assigned to help Bill piece together those events which led to his incarceration, and reestablish his link with the real world. As they work together to understand the shambles of his past, Bill and Ann find themselves inappropriately drawn toward one another, an attraction that will ultimately threaten both the therapist's work and her patient's life.

TADPOLE

Directed by:
Gary Winick
Produced by: Gary Winick, Alexis Alexanian, and Dolly Hall
Starring:
Sigourney Weaver, Bebe Neuwirth, John Ritter,
and introducing Aaron Stanford
Written by:
Niels Mueller and Heather McGowan
Website: http://www.miramax.com/tadpole/


Oscar Grubman (Aaron Standford) is a very precocious young man. Although he comes from a family of academics (his father is a history professor at Columbia), that doesn't really explain his passion for Voltaire. And he notices things most high school sophomores never really see, like women's hands. More than that, he can order in French and converse intelligently, certainly a rarity among teenagers. But he does share one thing with other 15-year-olds: he's in love.

For the Thanksgiving holiday, Oscar comes home from Chancy Academy with a plan--he's going to pursue the love of his life. He will follow the passionate advice of his sage Voltaire and win the heart of his beloved. Oh, there is one difference from most boys his age--his beloved is quite a bit older than he. And that's not the least of it. Also starring Signourney Weaver, John Ritter, and Bebe Neuworth.

TADPOLE was shot with three Sony PAL PD-150's. The cameras were set to 4:3 aspect ratio and kept in interlaced scan mode. The film was editted in PAL on a Macintosh G4 powered Final Cut Pro system at The Edit Center in New York.

Starring:
Kyra Sedgwick, Parker Posey, Fairuza Balk
Written by: Rebecca Miller based on her book

Website: http://www.mgm.com/ua/personalvelocity/

Segmented into three parts, Greta (Parker Posey), Delia (Kyra Sedgwick) and Paula (Fairuza Balk) have one thing in common, each struggle to flee from the men who confine their personal freedom. As each story begins to unfold, the film follows their tangled webs of tragic circumstance that ultimately force them into an awakening of their inner selves and an emergence on their own life's path.

KILL THE POOR

Directed by: Alan Taylor
Produced by: Ruth Charny, Lianne Halfon, Gary Winick, Alexis Alexanian
Co-producer: Jonathan Shoemaker
Written by:
Daniel Handler
Director of Photography:
Harlan Basmadjian
Production Designer:
Rick Butler
Costume Designer:
Marie Abma



When a marriage of convenience becomes the real thing, Joe (David Krumholtz) moves his pregnant French wife (Clara Bellar) to a tenement building on New York’s Lower East Side. The street is like a war zone with none of the nostalgic appeal that Joe remembers from tales of his immigrant grandparents arriving in the same neighborhood with a new life. This is the urban frontier filled with a wildly funny mixture of gentrifies, homeboys, dealers and local residents simply bent on staying a float.

PIECES OF APRIL

Directed by: Peter Hedges
Produced by: John Lyns, Gary Winick, Alexis Alexanian
Written by:
Peter Hedges
Starring:
Katie Holmes, Oliver Platt and Patricia Clarkson
Website:
http://www.magiclanternpr.com/films/pieces_of_april.html

"Pieces of April" marks the directorial debut of writer Peter Hedges, novelist and screenwriter of "What's Eating Gilbert Grape."

April Burns (Katie Holmes) is a 21-year-old wild child with a very big problem. Against her better judgment, she's invited her straightlaced family for Thanksgiving dinner. Her boyfriend, Bobby, wants to help, but she banishes him from the apartment while she attempts to cook the meal. To make matters worse, she then discovers that her oven doesn't work. So, while April is forced to ask her eccentric neighbors for help in cooking her fifteen pound turkey, the Burns Family begins a reluctant journey from suburban Pennsylvania toward New York City's Lower East Side. April's Dad, Jim Burns (Oliver Platt) tries to convince the family that the day will be beautiful. Her mom, Joy (Patricia Clarkson) has her doubts and freely voices them. April's teenage sister and brother are squeezed between Grandma Dottie and a bag of snacks in the back seat as the Burns' family car hurtles toward Manhattan and what will most likely be certain disaster

You can just do a search on IMDB for films shot on DV. Be sure to exclude videos and TV programs to sift the wheat from the chaff.

Right, there's no narration. And, yes, I make extensive use of music, though it's not wall-to-wall. Judicious use of titling identifies the locations.

I never was much interested in, "This palace was built in the 15th century after the invading Mongol hordes got mortgages," kind of thing. I'm much more interested in capturing the experience of actually being there, getting a sense of the people, the environment and the culture of wherever I happen to travel.

Quote:
as in if you traveled in ITALY. and i'm about to go there HOW will it help me if i buy your DVD ?
I was thinking about something like this, i.e. if you are thinking about going to Sicily, this is what it's like -- not a "video guidebook," but a sampling of the overall aesthetic of the place.

Quote:
now all the music will need to be cleared
That's an issue. I had been picking up CDs of local music when I travelled and used those. For my current project (Rajasthan in India), I took a long a mini disk recorder and made live recordings of itinerant musicians -- these have worked out quite well, and tend to be of the "folk song" variety, and are probably in the public domain. At any event, absent a copyright registered in the US, I'd have only miniscule liablity exposure if I were sued.

Quote:
then there are all those faces
I'm not too worried about that. I live in a state with commercial appropriation of likeness laws so I could, in theory, be held liable. However, again, the damages for something like this would be negligible, assuming I were successfully sued.

Recent Dogme95 films shot electronically include "Italian for Beginners" (Digibeta) and "The King Is Alive," shot with a couple of PD150's. The first time I saw "The King Is Alive" in a theater, I thought it had been shot 16mm. It's on DVD now.

DV CAM in our Homes

A general question:

Can any of you give me concrete examples of DVCAM aquired shows (documentaries, news pieces etc) that have been broadcast nationally? (I'm talking high end DVCAM aquisition like the DSR-570, Ikegami etc.) I am trying to get a sense of how it looks when it is beamed to our homes. Beyond that, if anyone has any experiences dealing with the national cable broadcasting co's (ie. Discovery, Animal Planet) that would be interesting too!

Your actors are superb! I mean they are really on point. The script is good too. Shot selection is good too!

There is only one thing i want to point out, is the lighting in the interior. the window is on fire. Gotta put some gels over the window (maybe a ND 1/2) To stop it from burning the whole room up.

You could also use some ambient sound in the first shot of him flipping thru the book.

The exterior shots seem fine lighting wise. Kudos
