In the 80s a TV station in Montreal, used to have a fireplace on screen
when it was off the air.

Too much zooming, arbitrary pull-outs. Especially at the critical moment that the plane flew over, the camera pulls out wide for no apparent reason. Shaky handheld also. Editing could be a lot tighter as well. No reason to keep the location audio (which is primarily wind noise) in there all the time, just pull it down whenever there's nothing else on the track.

My first short "Chasing Ghosts"

I shot my first short film a few months ago. PLEASE PLEASE give me some constructive criticism! I used a Canon XL2 on this project. As for lighting; I used natural light and a home built lighting system using florescent bulbs. The only thing that REALLY REALLY bothers me about this short is the slight venetian blind effect I got on the shots where there's allot of movement... next time I will be sure to clean the heads BEFORE filming! Anyway, please let me know your thoughts on composition, editing, lighting, plot.... and anything else I'm leaving out! All shooting, editing, scoring, and ADR work for this short was complete in two days.

Production time: 7 hours / Post Production time: 12 hours

Thank you for the lessons.

You are saying what I knew, but I did not think you would see.
the shakee is mostly because the camera is held with my arms extend
over my head because of the fence. overexposure because I was scared of being overexposure so I underexpose to much.

Justin,

Your link didn't work. I think it got abbreviated.

This should work: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...deoid=16218204

That "venetian blind effect" that bothers you is your video interlacing. Somehow your odd and even lines probably got switched somewhere in the render. I don't know what you edit it with, but you could probably go back and change that. Or just deinterlace the whole thing. Especially if it's just going to be for online distribution.

My constructive criticism would just say that you could probably tighten up parts of the edit a bit. It felt like I had to wait a little too long to get the reaction from the other person during the dialogue scenes.

Other than that, I'd say you were pretty successful at producing a "cheesy black and white horror film!"

Hmm, it looks eye-level to me. Perhaps if you had positioned yourself next to the fence, you might have had an easier time shooting the craft landing?

You set yourself up a little bit, Martin, by labeling your video "the definitive clip". This would imply that it beats out all others, including those done presumably by the local/national media who were there, so the level of expectation is high.

There are a few rules-of-thumb when shooting events, such as avoiding zooming and then zooming back out again unless new information is added by doing so. Even if you had this on tape, you can simply eliminate the repetitious part of the shot when you edit.

Outside of the actual landing, if you do choose to build up the piece with other footage, it should tell some sort of story. I'm not sure what shots of the cars driving along the highway contributes to that, but I might have liked to have seen some of the excitement and interest in the bystander's faces.

I absolutely agree! I bet if I trimmed the clips a bit, that would solve the dialogue problem! I'll def have to try to deinterlace the footage! Thatís good news! lol I thought my footage was ruined. Anyone else have any constructive criticism to offer? ....... Feel free to tell me about the parts you liked too!!

Congrats and good job on your first short!

As far as constructive criticism, it seemed like there were some issues with dialogue sync in the room when he's tied.... could be myspace tho. I agree too that some of the dialogue could be tighter as far as the cuts, but all in all, great job for your first short film!

Justin i really enjoyed it, its an unusual film and the mix of the private dick feel and the supernatural feel is interesting. There was something about the guy in the chair when he spoke he remided me of the character from twelve monkeys, you know the voice in bruce willis's head.

Good Job, Rodriguez would be proud.

Andy.
