I have a .mac

But sorry to say Apple made iLife 08 for only newer macs. My Powerbook G4 which is only about a year and a half old will not run the new iLife. Looks like a cool program.

"Ain't Got Much of a Smile" Music Video

Shot in my backyard with a "home-made" green screen made of poster boards using only natural sunlight. You be the judge and see how the results came out.

I gotta tell you, artbeats footage rocks!

dude, that should be viral. I don't know why that's so freakin' catchy. It's not my style, but I'm passing it along.

That IS too bad. iLife '08 is the perfect companion for the .Mac account.
That's a TRUE BUMMER.

Thanks man, we appreciate your help in passing it along. It was a departure from the videos I usually do, but it was lots of fun, going way back to childhood memories to dig up ideas for this video.

Damn, what happened !?

The sound effect at the end also needs work.
I just watched it my self to check, and there is something completely wrong with that sfx! In both my 'Om The Hoek' movies btw...

SPOILERS
That fx is supposed to be a gunshot (obviously), but for some reason, it sounds like a little puff machine..!?

I don't understand how that happened..!
I also just checked the same movies on my DVD, and there, the sfx sounds like it should be. So I know I didn't just accidently delete the fx before uploading...

Any help, or suggestions ??
Any of you had this problem before ?

Advice for my Trailer?

I have a unique situation, in that my 90-minute film (which is almost complete) is a compliation of 10 short stories. I am having a hard time coming up with the most creative way to do a trailer. There is a narrator character (ala Rod Serling of The Twighlight Zone), so I was thinking of having the narrators voice speaking over the trailer -- possibly showing bits and pieces of each story. The stories really don't relate to each other, other than the narrator character is the "story-teller".

Does anyone have any "outside of the box thinking" on this? If I use your idea, I will give you a credit in the film.

Thanks!

Thanks for the review Mike.

Unfortuantely I can't do anything about the angles in the edit. However, I have managed to fix the sound a bit and (i hope) make the edit a little more interesting. If you get a chance, please check out the remastered version of the film at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kf57RFKs-HU

Thank you everyone for your reviews. I tried to take all I could into account all the suggestions I could when I re-edited the film over the last two nights. I hope you all get a chance to check out the new version and let me know if you think it is any better/worse/same

The feel is a lot better, in my humble opinion . I really like the flashback/cutaway segments that you added and the way that you used the masks in post to separate them from the current action. The difference in the color process also set the flashbacks/cutaways apart really well. I really like it.

The one thing I think was better in the original was the end look on his face on the line, "In the kitchen." I don't like the blacks crushed quite so much. I understand that it's the same color timing as the rest of the piece. I just think that his eye sockets are a bit too dark.

I know that sounds knit picky. But the piece is really well done and that's the only thing I could think of that MIGHT make it better. Emphasis on MIGHT. This is by far not a breaking point for the piece.

Well done...

Kevin

If it were me i'd think of a concept and shoot something purely for the trailer for example a motorway under pass (like the one in the origional terminator where she puts the bandage on him), theres an old tramp sitting next to a fire and he's the one telling the stories, you could get some nice close ups through the flames and creapy shots of the woods etc (opertunity for some dolly moves) and just add in some clips from each story.

If thats too cliched for you another option is to use text, think up something clever to write about your stories and put the text between clips of your stories.....something along the lines of humans inherant need to tell stories or even the patron saint or greek/roman god of story tellers (if there is such a thing).

These are just off the top of my head.

Andy.
