don't believe the hype

Hi everyone,



I've shot recently a fake commercial for hoaxbuster.com

Since I don't own the rights for the music, I've made up a fake brand ("hoaxtracker.com") in order to avoid bugging the rights owners (EMI Virgin or something).

One of the two actors is Greg Bouchelaghem, Cage Warrior 2006 vice-champion of the world.


The short is shot with HVX200 + Redrock HD mini 35 kit + Nikon lenses (50mm for the most of it).

The video is here :

Airstream RV Video Blog!

If you've ever considered owning an RV or Airstream travel trailer, you might find my blog of interest:

http://www.thelonglonghoneymoon.com/?p=1

My wife and I bought our Airstream last year, and took it over 15,000 miles around North America. I'm in the process of transferring all our films onto the website, but you'll get the idea.

Cool site, My family is about to head off from Los Angeles all the way to Ohio with our 35ft Motohome and 1988 Jeep Cherokee in tow.

I'm planing on stopping at many places on the path and make it a online series.

Did any of the businesses you went into have any problems with you filming?

EYE FOR AN EYE - Five Minute Dramatic Short

Check out our short film on the Doorstop Film Project at the following link: http://www.thedoorpost.com/?film=c8a...79020529689e2e

It was shot on a Canon HV20 on a budget of $27. It's quick and easy to register and vote, and a 5-star vote for our film would be greatly appreciated.

Not Bad.

Not bad. I thought the cinematography was solid. Nice high contrast lighting. WOW! There were some editorial decisions that took me out of the story. The various insert shots (close up of hands tied, gun, picture) could have been omitted. The duration could have been shorter and the music cut out of the car flashback was abrupt when it ended.

From a writing stance, I'd avoid cliched dialog like "Please God", "You killed my family", "Don't kill me". On the story side, I did enjoy the ending which I felt was the strongest element. Although, the end Voice Over brought me out of it. With dialog, remember, less is more. Use words to tell the story if you must and make them unconventional because as stated above, we've heard all these in movies before.

Overall, the script was cliched but very well executed considering the budget and setup. I think you're talented, just bring up your writing with your technical knowledge and let them grow together.

Best Regards,
-C

Trailer for promotional film

This is a short trailer for a promotional film I am making for the Montessori St Nicholas Charity. It features Tana Ramsay (wife of Gordon) who is a trained Montessori teacher.

http://www.film-it.net/client/montes...ler_v203-1.wmv

It was shot on an XL2 with a Mini35 adapter and a set of Nikon prime cine lenses.

The trailer was very hastily put together in Sony Vegas using a Cinescore music bed (which won't be used in the final piece). The full piece is to be released on 27th June. This trailer is really for the client to see the style of the piece (thankfully they are happy!) and will be put up on their website as a teaser later this week.

Comments welcomed.

Cheers.

Ian . . .

Thank you for checking out the film Chris. The close ups of the tied hands were intended to show that the captor notices the wedding ring on his captive's left hand. The film was actually longer, but it had to be cut down to 5 minutes or less to be eligible for the contest. We also shot the entire movie over a two day period for a total of 5hrs on the sets, with no time for rehearsals before the shoot. Some of the dialogue was also improvised on the set. There were a few things, of course, that I would have changed, but we were done shooting by the time I noticed them. For example, once I started editing, I did not realize the character said "Please God" as many times as he did. Overall though, I am satisfied with how the film turned out. Thanks once again for the feedback, it is really appreciated.

As has been said before the editing could be tightened up a little, you linger just a beat to long on some shots. Overall it was well done and I wish you luck.

But ... and there is always a but ... you know you gave away the rights to your film. I am almost certain that the festival can even sell your work if they so chooose. Read the terms carefully.
