Okay, no comments on the first one - very bad sign.
Here is another quick attempt at the Heinz Contest before the deadline.

Got it in just minutes before the midnight deadline. Whew!
It was so tough to get a good take the kids -especially at the same time (the hot dog missed a few takes as well), but I tried anyway.

Forsaken - The Forgotten Orphans of Malawi

This is some pre-production test footage I shot with a Canon XL-H1. It was shot in PAL 25f and downconverted for web compression. Its too bad you can't see the beauty of the original footage (due to compression).

This is not a film trailer, just footage shot in a lighting test. There are no lights used in any of the shots, everything is natural existing light. No reflectors, etc. All footage was shot hendheld with the stock Canon lens.

New(ish) music video

Hey guys,

Thought I'd post this link for a music video shot on a Z1 with Wayne Kinney's SGPro adaptor.

I directed and cut it at the beginning of the year. Shot on location in the bands local pub (where they formed).

The brief was to do something that captured the lifestyle / tone / rough 'n ready sound of the band - which was all we could do with what we had available.

We had zero budget (everyone on camera is a real pub regular) and 8 hours to get in, set up, shoot and get out before the pub opened for real.

Would be great to hear any feedback you've got.

Click on the 'watch video' link on this page to see it:

Best,
Marco

It's only Youtube, but...

I would really like some comments on my movies..
I've been studying film for 5 years now, and since some of you guys are pro's, it would be great to have some insight from you.

Most of 'em have no dialogue, but the ones that have, are in dutch (I'm from Belgium), so.. Just so you know.

The films that I've uploaded so far are just a selection of what I've done, so there's more to come pretty soon..
(the link is in the sig.)

I thank you in advance!
Grts.

You got some really moving/emotional footage there and it ties in well with the interviews. I almost didn't get to catch it though because I was just about to click away before the action footage began.

You only have moments to grab the attention of the viewer and I think the footage you started with was the least engaging of all your shots. It give the impression that we are about to watch 8 minutes of some people sitting around a table talking.

Great work... I'd definitely be interested in seeing the whole film.

Like I mentioned in my YouTube comment, I like the styling and music. Definitely you need to pick up a stabilizer of some sort. I have a monopod that I picked up from walmart for under $20. It is GREAT, can't remember the brand off hand but there is none better for under $100. I haven't seen the same thing anywhere else either, for some reason. So you can stabilize for cheap. I carry my monopod to places where I might not have the time or space to set up a tripod (or the ability to carry a 15lb tripod even).

Since you are not in the USA, I have no idea what store to point you to for low-price monopod.

Good job with the DVX for your first video with it. It takes a long time to learn all the settings on that thing, I learn more and more with each video I shoot. Check out the book "The DV Rebel's Guide" by Stu Maschwitz for some great tips specifically for the DVX.

amusing commercial I DP'd

Okay, DP'd is probably a strong word, as they had it shotlisted/storyboarded/scouted/etc. before I came onboard, but I had input on composition, exposure, DOF, those types of things.

This was done in completely available light, save for one shot where I used a reflector (I don't even think this ended up in the final cut), on a slightly rainy overcast day.

We used my XL2, on the factory default settings, 24p, 4:3.

violent, but i like it! gets the message across and the incident is so sudden its actually funny to me; considering that i dont like super-violent commercial spots. Great work! and the lighting was perfect for the feel-good atmosphere.
