Ash,
Thanks for replying. Agree, sound is blown out in a couple of places. The camera was unmanned (on tripod) and I screwed up the setting of my lav mic. As for the hand-held shots...we were going for the "24" look so we used a mixture of handheld movements and short cuts to raise the pace and suspense. The music was created using Cinescore (Sony). I have to give my son (the spy) the credit for the music, editing (in Vegas Pro) and much of the direction. We are re-mixing the sound and music based upon some "sound" advice from Mr. Victor Milt (award winning producer). Will post the new version later.
Thanks again for your input.
Randy

2 Projects I Shot - Reviews Please

Hey all.
I have two projects that I've posted on my myspace site that I'd love to get some feedback on, constructive hopefully. :)

The first is titled "A FAIR PRICE." This is a Grindhouse inspired trailer that was fun to shoot and edit and is really meant in the spirit of over the top entertainment coming from the exploitation point of view. It was shot on my JVC HD100 camera and edited using Vegas 7 and Adobe After Effects/Photoshop.

The second is a 15 minute piece called "A STEP TOO FAR." This was the first 13 pages of a feature length script that I co-wrote that was entered in the Creative Screenwriting screenplay competition. The script grabbed a "Considered" grade in the contest, so we went out to make a marketing package to include this piece. Again, this was shot using my JVC camera and edited with the same setup.

These are the first two things I've shot. I have more stuff coming. 2 new shorts I'm getting ready to shoot and a music video/CD promotion that I'm excited about.

Please let me know what you think and thank you for viewing. You can see them on my myspace page.

Hi Heath,

I did not have the time to watch both. I think you might find 15min's is a bit too long for someone to review here!

These are my thoughts on ' A fair Price'

I found the titles difficult to read, and the general font not great. Maybe it's just a you tube thing!

For a trailer it would not inspire me to want to watch the film. I thought the voice over was very poor!!! this can make or break a trailer.

Also not enough variety. Too many cuts with girl shooting from her gun and not much substance in between.\Where is the atmospheric soundrack? Please take this as a critique and not personal. I am sure others will have their different viewpoints on this.


Cheers.

not sure what will happen still. I`m trying to start up a small video production company to try and get out of my crappy day job that pays squat. I need to estaablish myself enough that I could support us before she could live here. I already tried living there...but no BA degree makes it impossible to work legally, and the penalty for getting caught is minimum 5 year no-rentry. She will come here for 2 months next year and try it out and go from there I guess...just sucks waiting another 5 months to see her again :(

Looks awesome.

The Footage is really clean and actualy quite steady considering you're in a boat cruising pretty fast!

Well done.

Hello.
Thanks for taking a look at Fair Price. I guess you didn't read the blog I posted about it, so understandable. This was to actually be a 15 minute short, but after I got into the editing room I noticed that a good 85% of my footage was out of focus. So what we had to work with was pretty much that footage. If I'd have had more to work with, I'd have used other stuff.

Thank you for taking a look and giving me the feedback. I really appreciate hearing all viewpoints on my stuff. It definitely helps me grow as a film maker.

Brad - i just purchased a right handle pistol style grip that still photographers use. It was only $12 and someone who does a lot of filming like that suggested it, saying it helps. Cant wait to try it out.

Devesh - Wow!

Very cool. Good actors and editing. I'm not a great fan of hand-held, so maybe a tripod would have helped. The voice on the phone was hard to hear, but I was able to get the message. Good work - keep it up.
