The music is beautiful.
It's very sad to think of all those people who have just died or are struggling to survive as we speak.

It's very hard, considering I went there last summer to shoot this video. One featured video of the quake on YouTube originates from my hometown in Wuhan, China where a highrise was entirely evacuated.

Hey all, I just finished a short film for my American History class. Shot in 2 days and edited in 2 sleepless nights mere hours before the deadline. I liked how it turned out though; it was something different and a lot of fun. Used an XHA1 with magic bullet looks in FCP.

Not perfect I know, as crew was somewhat nonexistent, but some comments would be welcome, more so in the areas of shot composition, editing, storytelling and the general flow. I'm always looking for ways to improve my work. Also, actors were members of the class, so no real 'actors' here, though some of us like to think so!

Enjoy-

Well, it is great for a student film. I wish I had access to equipment like this when I was starting out (we fought for time on the cuts only 3/4" bays).

The story, the acting and the editing are fine. I like the sense of mystery you created.

My only complaint would be the anachronistic elements. The highway, the heater and electrical panel. I don't know what you were dealing with but if you could have adjusted your shots, maybe you could have removed them from the scenes?

But overall, really great work!

thanks!

Well, things are always a work in progress. It's been suggested that I add short flash dissolves before and after flashbacks/character histories. Yay or nay? Is the washed out color enough already for people to tell that its a different time?

Oh, and I'm kinda lying about the "HD," I found that SD uprezzed to 720[ looks better on vimeo than the SD version. Sorry to decieve!

What else is fixable?

Yeah, a real bummer now that it's done. When I started I didn't have any real plans to take the time to make this a quality piece. I was stressed out and low on time so I was just going to kinda do it "good enough." After we got the footage though, I realized just how much I liked some of the performances and the script in general.

Highway really does take away from the whole experience, but the "saloon" location was to good to pass up (especially with a sub-$30 budget)- no way to avoid those cars though, that's a freeway in the background! We shot that scene first, and after that things like the electrical box and heater seemed kinda trivial if the highway was in the first shot. You're correct that I should have been able to frame them out however.

If I learned one thing from this production is that I guess I don't do things "good enough." I'm in it for the production no matter what. Would have liked a boom on the shoot, and an operator for that matter; also lights might have added some, also, more tripod shots; I think I did the whole thing handheld- cept for the last shot where Kit is walking away through the bodies, someone else had to do that one *wince* cause I had to play dead!

I wonder if you can blur the highway to make it less noticeable.

Shhh! Don't be apologizing for that stuff! The audio was quite adequate. Some dialog was a little lower which you can bring up but overall not bad. I did notice some camera bobble but not too bad. Having said that, if ya got sticks, use 'em! The lighting was adequate too.

I did find one fairly major problem with your script though: this website, http://www.nps.gov/gosp/ states the spike was driven on May 10, 1869, although I read somewhere else it was May 15. So I'm not sure what the actual date was.

Its good work that you should be proud of. Now you know what to look for on your next attempt!
