Not bad for a 2nd attempt at a live band. I agree that you really need a stable location for the wide cam and a slightly tighter shot would have been good. Did you have a nice heavy tripod? I think the weight would have added stability if so.

I liked the shot you tried out at the end with the light behind the guitarist. If you would have had some more of those shots to use throughout the piece it could have added some emotion that was lacking from the performance.

Might be a good idea to add a pre-recorded track over it, but you will have to do something about making it seem like the performance is live. Losing the natural room sound will hurt it's credibility as an event. Well you can always add another track for that.

Cheers, and keep shooting!

An Experimental Horror Film

An experimental film that focuses on pacing more than visual quality. This film had virtually no budget, and compared to other no-budget films I've done, I don't think the camera angles are as good, but the pacing may be better. Any comments?

I like the moon zoom thing at both ends. It would be good to steady that somehow, the wiggle detracts from the effect. Maybe zoom into it, pause then pan down to the actors as the dialouge fades in as if they are entering form the left. Zooming out at the end then fading out as the credits fade in would be cool too.
The dialouge i think didn't work so well. It's hard to come up wth natural sounding script that doesn't come off as improv sounding.
Faked the stabbing well. Believeable and scary.
Keep up the good work.

The WW's serious tone and attitude regarding something so absurd as cheetos.... was hilarious. But yeah, when he went off later could have been a bit shorter. Less is more kind of thing.
very nice production.

I liked it a lot. I'm not familiar with the sgpro, but I'm just now starting to look into all that stuff for the first time. Where can I find more info on it? Was this the DVX100, a, or b? I liked this a lot. It had a sad feeling of 'goodbye' to it.

PJ, Your footage looks great. I'd like to know more about the film. What did you shoot it on? What was your budget? What did you edit it on, etc.

Nice video, how did you do the effect at the end? What did you shoot it on?

Babelgum.com Online Film Festival

Hello Everybody. I just wanted to inform everyone that our short film EYE FOR AN EYE was accepted and is currently competing for the Babelgum.com Online Film Festival - Looking For Genius Award. Please check it out and vote for it. The direct link to the film's website is - http://www.babelgum.com/html/clip.php?clipId=112672. What you need to do is download the player, install it, then register to watch the films. You can always type EYE FOR AN EYE in the search tab as well to find out film. When you pull up the media player and the play the film, move the cursor over to the right to rate it. Five stars is the highest, and that rating would be most appreciated.

The film was shot with a Canon HV20 with a budget of $27, please forgive the compression. I sent them the film in 720P, but they heavily compressed it for online streaming. The actual film looks much better in HD or even on DVD. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

HD greenscreen interviews for local non-profit

Hey Guys:

I've been very busy shooting and editing this spring, but wanted to show my latest work. I was contracted by a local non-profit, the Boulder County YWCA, to produce five short videos for their Hall of Fame Awards that were presented last night.

Here's the quarter-rez vids in Flash: http://www.browncowvideo.com/YWCA/videos.html I'll try to get some HD ones up on Viemo soon.

I hired a guy to assist me with a second cam in the shoot. He has the Sony V1U and I have the Canon A1. We captured in 1080/30p and I did the rough edits in PremierePro CS3 at 1280x720 then brought the footage into After Effects for keying with Keylight and adding various effects. I made the opening/closing curtain sequences with the Fractal Noise effect.

I shot the five background plates at the historical Chautauqua Park up against Boulder's famous Flatirons formation. My favorite one is the Dining Hall with the flag-waving and leaves rustling. Plates were blurred appropriately with Fast Blur to mimic 35mm film DOF.

Here's some full-def screen grabs:
http://www.browncowvideo.com/YWCA/fernwide.jpg
http://www.browncowvideo.com/YWCA/ferncu.jpg

I presented the videos last night on my Optoma 720p projector to about 500 people at the annual fundraiser/awards banquet. Files were 1280x720 10Mbps WMVs and looked pretty darn good on a 12' screen. The videos were very well-received and likely landed me more work.

A HD multi-cam greenscreen shoot is sure not something I want to do every project, as it's a major workflow challenge and ties up a lot in rendering time, but I'm very happy with the results.

Enjoy,
Brian Brown

Hello, thanks for the feedback guys, now to answer the questions. I shot it on a canon xl2. I'm not much of an effect guy.. but here's how I did it. I shot them all with her in the frame, then she leaves the frame. So I cut out the part where she leaves... and I told the rest to stay still. and then I added a simple transition.
