I understood what you were wanting to do from your blog but I am not quite sure you achieved what you set out to do.

Now don't go getting all discouraged because some old f**t from abroad didn't get the hang of it - others may well disagree with me. What does matter is that you are coming out with good ideas, planning ahead, shooting better than most of the population could ever hope to, then (and most important) standing back and evaluating your work and having the courage to ask others what they think. Good on you!

I kind of had to skim through it as I am working at the moment...but it looked a little dark (may be a combination of my monitor resolution and me rushing)...but good job and great way to make a long process interesting! Do you only shoot in HD, or just on certain projects?

Oh yeah, and nice painting!

Hey Mike,
What a great place to be a videographer, I mean wow! And I just have to say I love Muse. I forget about them for awhile and then they just pop up again. I agree that the shots were a bit long. I like the idea of being judicious with shots, and using them as needed. I heard Robert Allen say once that too many videographers feel the need to use enough shots to end the song when instead they should be using the best shots, and what moves the story along. Good look to everything, and I am jealous of 3 things.

#2 EX1
#3 Muse in a wedding video.
Thanks for posting Mike...

Thanks John.
Glad you enjoyed the video and liked the painting.

And yes, i only shoot in HD now, i figure, i have the computer power, enough hard drives, and the camera to support it all, so i might as well shoot in HD if its available.

Hi Lee,

Intresting work although I would also agree a bit lengthy. I'm curious as to what method you used to do that super fast pull-back shot from the kids face to the beginning of the hall way. Did you use zoom or did you use a kart? That was a great effect.

Hi Paul,

I just watched your trailer. That was great. I definitely like the look and feel. Would love to make it to the festival and see the whole thing, but I can't...:(
Anyway, good luck. I'm sure it will be well recieved.

Violent Jake World Premiere

Hey Guys,

I've been putting together the pilot for an web-based short-form dramatic series for a couple of year now. We've just recently completed our pilot and will be premiering at the Independent Television festival, in L.A., on the first week of August.

Anyone who likes this kind of stuff and is in the area, it would be great it you came out to help support our project.

It was shot on an HVX200 with a M2 adapter and Zeiss Super-speeds, and a lot of moxie.

I cannot display the episodes we've created online until after the premiere, but you can check out Teaser Trailer and some stills at the following link.

I hope to see anyone who can make it. It's going to be a blast. Drop me a thread if you'll be there and I'll save you a Violent Jake t-shirt.

Cheers everyone,
Sam

"Initial"-Action/Drama for 72hr Film Competition

Hello all!

Recently, I partaked in the 72 Hour Film Shootout by the Asian American Film Lab. The goal of the competition (which is standard) was to write, shoot, and edit a film with a 72 hour time span while incorporating a given theme. In addition, the film had to be five minutes or less. The theme this year was "a first goodbye".

If anyone has seen my most recent films, I am very keen on doing atmospheric romances but my team and I decided it would be a good change of pace to do an Action/Drama. Something stylistic, fast paced, and as potent as we can make it.


Cast:
Sarah Yu as SammiJun Naito as Nakayama
Wayne Chang as Timothy Lau
Eddie Wong as Sammi's Boss
Eddie Lebron Sr. as Nakayama's Boss
Hugo Salazar as Earpiece Officer
Eddie Wong as Lau's Client

Written by:
Eddie Lebron, Sarah Yu, Jun Naito, and Wayne Chang

Cinematography, Edited, and Directed by:
Eddie Lebron



Synopsis:
"For two different purposes, a hitwoman on her first assignment and a overly loose canon detective both target and pursuit the same individual in Manhattan's Chinatown. As these events transpire, it becomes more clear as to why the hitwoman has decided to finally make her first kill."

The Film:

YouTube Version:

I must say, I am EXTREMELY pleased with how the film came out. If anything, the 5 minute restriction we had tested my editorial abilities and intuitions. In such situations, you have to cut out and let go of anything unnecessary which is hard when you are married to all the footage you shot but it's important to learn if you want to pace everything correctly.

Please comment and thanks again!

Thanks for the comments!

I seem very keen on tight shots such as close up's, especially for romances. When it comes to interiors and exteriors, I guess it's because I find exteriors more visually appealing and more complex so I tend to have a few more wider angles to create a scale. Interiors seem more intimate so there is no need to use too many wider shots.

Hope more people watch and comment!
