Two Minute Superhero Short On-Line

Hey guys,

I just put on-line a little short I did last summer. It's a fun, goofy little thing I did with some friends. It's about two very different superheroes who foil a robbery, and it's called "The Continuing Adventures of Loveman and the Guy Who Finishes Other Peoples' Sentences."

I shot with the XL1 in about four hours. Let me know what you think.

Thanks.

The look and lighting is very nice.
Did you use any adapter and what did you use for Color Correction?

Eniola,

Thanks. No, it is the stock 16x lens. I may have done a little color correction just using the Premier Pro effect, I'll check.

Eniola,

I checked - no color correction, what you see is right off the tape. I did some level adjustments on the credit sequence to crush the blacks down, but nothing on the film itself.

Pretty funny! The lighting was good. Do you happen to remember what it was that you used for the gun?

Oh, yeah. Can someone tell me how to make a new thread? I'm a new newbie. :D

Nicely done. Was that shot at the bar at the end of second street right down from the hill? I'm pretty sure I've played the drunk character there before.

Thanks for the kind words.

The gun is an airsoft pellet pistol I bought on ebay for $0.99. No kidding. Then like $10 in shipping and handling :o. It's tiny and plastic. The sound you hear when it hits is me dropping a pair of vice grips in to a wooden box.

The bar is The Wonderland Bar and Grill in Columbia heights... 11th and Kenyon or so. It is small too, but not too small.
