I'd love to get some reviews on this...beat it up, I have a thick skin. You can start with the failings of using an unbalanced microphone with cheap floursescent lights, and ending up with hollow sounding dialog from all the audio scrubbing I had to do to them. Then hit Cinematography, lighting, blocking, editing etc.

HIT ME!

Only one suggestion.... leave the text on the screen a little longer for older, slower, folks to read.

Well, I'm not gonna BEAT ya up, but here's some observations.

Good:
Lighting was very nice, except for a rare few instances. Talent was talented. Girl was scarily made-up, which is good. Nice range of shots and the editing was fairly seamless. So you must have had good coverage (rare indeed on a low budget). It was funny!

Bad:
A few times the light shadows on the Dad's face (towards the end). A lot of the b-roll archive footage seemed out of place. Now, this could be fine, if that's your intent... but start rolling it in during Dad's speech, too, so you set up your audience to accept it.

The scene just went on too long, IMHO. Dad's speech could have been way shorter and really place more focus on Mom's zingers.

Ugly:
Audio, like you said. Much of Mom's key dialog is lost in the muddiness. Maybe this is why the b-roll came into being in the first place... to mask your edits and/or script changes. But ADR it or something, since it's so paramount to the piece.

Also, the video took forever to download/ stream. Much of your audience will give up before watching it.

But overall, I was entertained. Which is what you set out to do. So please keep up the good work!

Duplicity for On The Lot (5:35 run time)

Hi!

If you can check out my film Duplicity and leave some feedback it would be greatly appreciated.

http://films.thelot.com/films/28878

"A private investigator takes on a seemingly effortless assignment only to uncover more than he bargained for."

It was shot on the XL2 if you are wondering.

Thanks!

Shot this with a DVX100, hardware lights, and a boom mic. There's no mercy for low budget out here. Let me know what you think.

Thank you very much sir. Hopefully the audio will be better in future productions. My production company just purchased a Canon MA100 and a Used Sony ECM 672 shotgun to replace my Audio Technica ATR55 that we've been shooting with.

Thanks for taking the time to watch, What kind of file size do you generally look for when downloading films, I know some of the sizes on this board are just gargantuan. I'd, obviously, like to make my work open to as wide an audience as possible.

Good work. The pacing was pretty smooth and I really liked the lighting in the last scene. I just left you a review.

I don't think it was a file size issue. I'm used to 50-100MB+ video file sizes, since I have a 1.5Mb connection. It seems your domain server was a bit sluggish, but it could have been a temporary thing. It stalled out at some point and I went along surfing and reading posts here... and your vid finally popped up and started playing like 20min later.

Whatever your encoding settings are, they look great. And it's nice that you've done low-res. versions for folks on dial-up, etc.

ah yes, the server is on DSL. I've traded off server connection speed for unlimited drivespace and bandwidth usage...and price. It's a friends' server, so it's free...I bought him a drive upon which to host my stuff at one point in time. We're looking into faster options as we speak.

Wacky posing routine

This is just for fun. It's clip from a bodybuilding contest that I shot last year. The videography is not exemplary, I just thought I'd post it to give you all a laugh.

I can't believe this competitor had ever SEEN a bodybuilding contest before, let alone been in one! He didn't have a clue what to do! Nor did he have any muscles!!
