yeah, that does look interesting.

What camera did you use? And how much footage did you shoot? Did you go into it with a fairly well thought out story, or did it just kind of hatch and present itself to you?

There is a lot of fantastic indie music out there, and this generation has produced some really first rate song writers.

Good start Bill! Is there a particular audience or angle you're taking this video? If you want critical feedback, well, that's what I can offer!

The concept comes through, the shots make sense, the editing is well done, and the sound is good. This feels like a video made in the last 80's/90's with a matching-era Hi8 camera. With the abundance of cheap HD digital cameras available, the older camera-look detracts from the video; it could just be the lighting, but I think it's more than that. I'm sure it would have helped had you been able to be the shooter.

That said, if he shot this himself and he's not a trained videographer, it was well done (stable, clean shots that are quite usable).

The sax shot looks cleaner/brighter than the rest - perhaps colour correcting the other footage would assist in bringing together a more uniform look. The still photos that are colour are far more punchy than the footage of the singer.

Good job!

Thanks for the look and comments. Funny you should mention Hi-8, the shots of my sax playign were done with a Sony VX-3. I don't know what camcorder he used, except it was mini-DV.

He shot the clips of him singing, well I believe his wife did most of the shooting, and the lighting was horrible. I corrected it as much as I thought I could, but there was a lot of grain.

the stills, yes, they are pretty clean, I did pump up the contrast a bit, but we were getting close to the contest deadline so I made it "look done" as we used to say in TV news. ;-) I could probably go back and drain most of the color from them. hmmm.

I've been eyeing a Canon HV30 and actually held one the other day and my goodness it's TINY! A long way from the TK76's and Ikegami's heck, even a long way from my DSR250 (at work). Not sure I can deal with something that small, but the budget won't go for anything more "substantial" maybe a used PD150 or GL1 but that is staying SD.

well, I got a bit off topic there didn't I. LOL

Thanks again.

Nice! Thanks for the explanation and detail into your process. It does look done, so that's good.

I own an HV20 - no joke, it is as good as everyone says it is. Get one - I have mine on rails with a matte box, 35mm adapter - the added heft makes it very workable. I've used it without the rig, and it's a bit light, but in stable hands it produces shots that people can't believe it shot. The music video I shot in this Forum area was shot with the HV20 (comment too if you'd like: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/show-your...rformance.html )

I've used the DSR-250, PD170 and, I can highly recommend the HV20!

Blind Sided

This was the 2nd film I made for the Zone Horror Cut! competition, the 1st being "The Bloodstained Moth" (posted earlier). Again it's a 2 minute horror short. It was made principally to give a run out for my new camera, the Canon HV20. In contrast to "The Bloodstained Moth", it was shot very quickly with little light setup.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your interest! The camera I used was a Canon XL2. The film is not yet completed, it's actually about halfway done but we have about 50 hours worth of footage. We had no story at all to start out with, we are basically forming a plot based on what the interviewees say, which to me is a lot more exciting.

I agree that there is a lot of great music out there, and that's what really inspired us to make this documentary. It's basically three people making it, a musician, a photographer and me.

Thank you again for your interest!

My "Mini-reel", I guess.

I made a video for my high school film group. We all just graduated from high school last semester and I decided to do one last production for them. I edited clips into a unfinished "Apologize" music video and it turned out to be a great little final project before I hit college. Read the description that is provided on the page as well. Comments are welcome!

The Wild Horses of Assateague Island

This short video started out only as a weekend exercise in following movement with a tripod but I had a few "happy accidents" along the way. I'm so pleased with how it turned out that I wanted to share it with you.
