Kellogg's Commercial (Comedy Sketch)

Me and some friends got together and improv'd a Kellogg's commercial that is just plain down right silly, but filled with tons of fun and laughter and unexpected twists!

Simple equipment used. Oktava and a Rode camera mounted mic. Was a blast to shoot. Don't ask where we got the strawberry suit from. :D

Hah, nice commercial.
Pretty funny.

Only the audio drift bothered me sometimes. Owkay, sometimes they are meant to be harsh and sometimes they work, but sometimes they should be smoothened a bit, I feel.

Official Film Trailer "THEO"

Shot partly with JVC HD100 and HV20 with Redrock M2 35mm adaptor.

Official web-site is not up yet, but you can watch the HD video on Vimeo:

http://www.vimeo.com/825323

Compression is not too bad, but isn't great either.

Alternatively you can check out this direct link for 480P HD video stream:

Thanks for looking.

My film shot entirely on a Canon XL2 "The Shadow Asset" - DVD now released

It has been a long time since I started this film. I learned a lot from the Canon XL2 watchdog forum. I found some great tricks and I posted some of my own that I used to get a real theatrical look from the Canon.
Well now it has all paid off.
The movie has now been released on DVD. Check out my movies website to find out more.

Thanks to everyone who shared their filmmaking tips.

Reel Question

Not sure what to do about this one. I want to put together a reel for commercial production. Exclusively for post work. My question is should I cut together clips of my work with the mix of the project or should I cut it together to a soundtrack. Now I understand that if you are a DP you would cut to music. But if you want to be an editor in this field shouldn't you include your mix of the project as well? So the client can grasp that you can handle the whole project? Or should I just cut it to music as well? Any feed back would be great on this one.

I've always found cutting to music works well as it gives you the chance to gel a number of different works together in way which delievers a bigger impact, however at the same time bringing occasional audio elements from the original project is what i believe to be key to making it stand out. They do this alot in film trailers, where they have a music sound track playing the whole time, but on key events they will let the dialogue rise above the music to add a sence of extended drama and intimacy.

Sometimes i think it's more important a client goes away feeling 'emotionaly influenced' rather than 'technically informed' by a piece of film as i have found people will generally go by what 'feels' better regardless of how it was achieved.

Hope this helps

Great look and pace to this, it really creates a 'feel'. Well done.

Well done Wes, looks excellent. What sort of DVD/distribution deal deal have you got if you don't mind sharing?

Thanks I see your point. This gives me something to think about. I am really going for something short and sweet. The music I have chosen is only about a minute and half long. Does anyone thing I need to make it 3 minutes like a standard reel? If I did I could bring more clips in and let them linger so I would have time to bring up the audio.

This just occurred to me. Now if the piece I am showing has music as well and I bring up the audio then the soundtrack is no good. Which could create more confusion.

Now What?

In that case, I would see if I can find the audio recording without the music mixed in. Easy to do if you still have all the working files, not so easy if you don't.

If you can't isolate the voice audio, then maybe you shouldn't use that clip for the demo reel.

If you want, your demo reel doesn't need to have music throughout, maybe at certain parts. Then at the parts where there is no sountrack, you can use the clips with music mixed in with them.

Just make sure if you use these clips with audio, when you chop them up in the timeline to have the audio blend between them, so that you don't get sharp audio jolt sounds between shots.

Nice, looks like a good film. The cinematography was especially attractive. The volume for the voices is a too low compared to the music, sometimes I had trouble hearing what they were saying.
