The inexperienced operator alone could have been manageable, but there were several other problems with the second camera. It would not focus properly for most of the time, so the operator had to hold it on one person for a long time to get it to focus (couldn't use manual because it was to dark to easily focus it). But the big one is that the battery did not work at all, so it was tied down to a gigantic extension cord, so whenever the operator moved the camera, they had to to drag the cord out, which made the motion of the camera quite jerky. All of these problems should be fixed with he HV30 though.

Jamie Scott: Dichotomy

This is a short film I made about a man with multiple personality disorder. I tried to do a David Fincher sort of suspense thing. Looking for feedback! Shot on an XL2, obviously. I'm considering entering it in a film festival here in San Francisco called Epidemic.

You can download it here: http://media.beta.samuraifilms.org/movie_files/two.mov

or watch it here: http://samuraifilms.org/#Jamie%20Scott%3A%20Dichotomy

Hi Sam,

The video is okay and the audio/music is nice. Your weak area seems to be the story. The story starts off quite slowly, plot points and character development seems lacking. But if your target audience is restricted to friends and the art houses, some will enjoy the diversion.

Good luck, Michael

The rotating camera thing is the coolest contraption I've ever seen, hands down. I'd have never come up with that. F'ing incredible.

I only watched the cinematography reel. My thoughts:

You didn't show a non-timelapse shot until 1:00 in, and I thought that was too long.

The whole thing could use some color correcting, but I don't know if that's a product of the encoding.

Finally, your best shots were all in the last :30. Show me what you've got up front, so I keep watching! End on one of those sunset timelapses.

Great reel!

Haha, I should market my short as "something to watch while rendering." Thanks for taking a look Carl!


ALSO: I realized there was something weird with my audio mix after the QT compression, so I fixed it. At least in the downloadable file, can't really fix YouTube.

It looked good to me.

I had to laugh when guest speakers were mentioned right when it shows the three turkeys in the background.

Looked good.

Short PSA for Church

I just finished this last night and am looking for some feedback. It's just a fun thing I did for an upcoming event at my church.

It's shot 100% on a Fig Rig, with a Canon XH-A1.

Thanks for checking it out!

Latency - short film

Hello all! I submitted a short film to this thread a few months and was very happy with the response I got from all the experienced folk here at dvinfo.net! The last film I submitted was called "chasing Ghosts" for those interested.

My new film is called "Latency". The images below are raw grabs from my Canon XL2 footage. My plans are to submit this short film to a Film Festival in Dallas, TX mid-May. I'd like to get a little feed back on these stills, please. I'll check the festival rules and ask if I can upload the film before the festival in May. If not, I'll def upload it after the festival.

New Music Video! The Road Known too Well

Hi! So we shot this music video in one day, one very long day. I edited it in two days. But I still think it turned out quite well. I would like to know some of your opinions! Many of the opinions on the first music video I posted up here were helpful.

Here's the link:

Could use some color correction, IMO, but not bad.

Looks good. In particular i like 3 and 4 shot. The only thing are those vertical lines (but maybe is the compression) on the background.
