Hi,

Impressive work, mate.

Is this shot in 24 FPS? Or how many FPS? And for the first clip of the hero, how many FPS was that? It looks smooth.

I wanted to congratulate you, it's people like you that take the initiative to get out there and make your film... but you're also really showing what can be done with the right talent.

I loved the whole thing to be honest. The lighting as everyone is agreeing really is great. It reminded me immediately of "Children of Men." The feeling in this movie is (agreeing with others) as good or better than "Blade" stuff.

I can easily see if you worked on your story and character quirks to be a bit more natural and believable you are going to rise quickly out of the Indie crowd. All the Best!

Impressed

I am dumbfounded as to how you were able to pick up those colors with the XL1s. I have an XL1 and I suppose the XL1s is a big improvement, but really I think you did a fantastic job. I'm wondering a few things, such as what you used to edit, what you used for digital effects, and although you mentioned that you didn't use lighting, did you use light reflectors? Did you adjust a lot of the colors in post?

Really, again, I'm very amazed with what you were able to do with that equipment!

Sorry for the long delay with checking this page !

to your questions:

@Jasper:
Its shot with 25fps in framemode. Some of the shots like the walking in the begining or the first fall in the MTV style head chop scene were enhanced with slow motion shots done with Motion Perfect. As the shots most of the time arent really perfect some masking and animating of stillframes was done in After Effects to hide parts of the image which were not calculated good.

@Daniel:
A lot of color correction was done in the postpro - there is not one single frame which is not somehow changed ! For the XL1(s) I think its best to shot at cloudy days or areas in which not a lot of contrast is .. this way I get the best out of it, coz afterwards you can add contrast, but still got a good colorrange. Doing something on a sunny day with shadows is hell for the XL1 and the footage looks a lot cheaper.
I did not use any reflectors or anything else .. just the sun or lights which were available and I didnt change any of the settings of the XL1s.

@Everyone else:
Thanks a lot for the nice words. Its really cool that you have some fun with the short !!

Take care and have a nice weekend :)
