Spooky Promo

Ok - plucked up the courage and posted my first 'short'!

A friend of mine asked me to put together a short promo for his company at short notice, so I had to utilise footage I've collected over the past view years from various locations. We didn't want to scare clients so I went for a more mysterious tone.

The colour and B/W footage is shot with my XM2 and VX2000 (still can't decide on my favourite!), and the IR shots on Sony single CCD cameras. Because of the nature of the work a lot of shots have to be handheld, and lighting is, er, what I can carry!

Just over 3MB .WMV

Constructive feedback appreciated!

Short promo

Congrats on the awards Jeremy, that's great! Just checked out the film and thought it was awesome - hard to believe you managed to put all that together in just 2 days!!! That is talent indeed. It had a very polished look to it and kept my interest throughout.

Say, what mic did you use to record the audio? I'll be in the market to buy a new mic soon and I really like the sound in this film.

We used a Shure boom mic. I don't know what model though sorry. It was about 3 inches out of frame at a 45 degree angle. We ran it to a mixer than out of the mixer into the camera.

The Watermelon just got accepted into the San Diego Film Fest.

I'm happy and excited. The writer, the executive producer and the lead actor are all from San Diego so I decided that it might be good to submit and hit the road locally. Anyway, here's a trailer for those of you who haven't seen it.

Wow, nice work. Footage quality was excellent, nice shots, smooth camera movements. I liked the ambient sound as well - very clean track.

very nicly done. I like the concept you were getting at with the first date. I think we all can relate to that. well quality is very nice and the audio sounded good. shot selection was okay. i think you could hVE DONE little better with a few shots like the one with her leaving the bathroom. i think you stayed with it a little to long. and maybe the last shot of them driving way. would have liked to see them get into the car. maybe show him opening the door for her being even more of a gentleman since he got the rose for her..

But overall very good short film i liked it
