The whole series of these

180 DEGREE RULE

FAST & SLOW CUTTING
http://www.sonnyboo.com/onlinemovies/fastslow.htm


These are aimed towards complete beginners and will be marketed to High School and early colleges for sales with this type of video in a series on DVD.

We shot in HDV with the JVC HD110 camera in both 24P and 30P modes and I edited in Avid Xpress Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 along with some work in After Effects. Mike Tavares was the shooter for me and the BMW was on loan from Buzz Productions. The crane shots come courtesy of Sean McHenry & Deep Blue Edit, plus TJ Cooley helped a lot on the shoot.

Thanks all.

Mock-Infommercial "The Wangtastic"

Hey folks,

A quick short I threw together with a couple of friends over a free weekend last summer. There's some obvious things I'd like to fix . . . however, since it is a mock-infommercial we wanted to retain that cheesy feel. This certainly made for a lot less pressure in the trying-to-make-it-look-really-cool department.

Would love to get some feedback. Here's the link. Thanks.

Hey I've written, produced, and directed lots of infomercials. Comedy is the hardest thing. I think this would be better if it was about half as long. I liked the notion of connecting him to the vacuum cleaner. and i appreciate that you didn't find the need for graphic vulgarity.
Kudos to whoever picked the music--it's perfect--we use to spend days mulling through that kind of generic garbage. It makes my skin crawl hearing it.

Here's an opening for a infomercial i did for a recliner. I was trying to be funny.

And here's a mock infomercial by the morris brothers that I think is funny/silly.

They've got a REALLY funny one on that sight called reginald santori. I think the guy who stars in these videos is a genuine comic talent with potential hollywood chops.

How did you render it? file size? resolution? etc

Hey Brian,

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, again, I saw an opportunity for a lot of things to do different . . . one of which was to tighten it up and make it shorter. We really wanted to preserve that goofy feel that a lot of the infommercials of even a few years ago had. Ridiculous invention, crappy acting and cheesy music and scenes overall. I definitely wanted to keep it "innocent" so to speak. Even though it's for a very personal product, I wanted to keep it fun and relatively PG.

On the subject of the music. That was all done by Chris (the co-director) in his home studio. It turned out phenomenal. He did a great job and he took the music in a different direction than I originally thought, but it ended up being the right choice.

To your point about the length, I should've kept it to :30 or 1:00 max in keeping w/ traditional infommercial length. May try recutting . . but then again this was kind of a quick exercise.

Did the all the cutting in Final Cut. Rendered using Sorenson Video 3 and compressed the audio w/ IMA 4:1. If I remember correctly, I think we ended up with about a 40 meg file (320 x 240). The site we posted to capped it to I think 50 or maybe 80. So the nice thing was we were able to keep a nice amount of detail.

My 2 cents...I liked your reel, the only thing is I feel like you went too long on the music video part. I got it in the 1st 30 seconds. I had to wait too long to see what other kinds of work you do, ie...commercials and promotional video.
I also checked out your website. Very nice. Easy to navigate and find contact information. Nice job.
