Evil In Men

Hi!

I just opened a website for our newest project, a short film called Evil In Men. There's pretty much nothing on the site right now :) but updates will follow.
The movie will probably be finished in December 2007. First teaser will be out on 1 of June.

Here is Sand Castle Event that I taped.

Here is a video of a Sand Castle Event that I shot 2 years ago at the Revere Beach in Massachusetts. I could have shot this year’s event but I didn’t have a professional camcorder available.

I originally planed to tape the event just so that I can get some beach footage to add to my demo wheel so all together I had around 38 minutes worth of footage of that event and the camera that I used was the Panasonic 100a.

A few days ago I decided to experiment using Nero so I edited the footage to around 24 minutes but I still left some over exposed shots on purpose. If I had shot at least 3 hours worth of footage and included interviews, I could have easily made a good 1 hour documentary on the event.

As is, I’m going to show it here for free and yes I’ve already shown the dance scenes in other forums but this version has stuff I’ve never showed online yet.



The video is 356MB and the bit rare is around 2Mbps using H.264 as the codec.

I hope you don’t get too much problems trying to download this big file.

Somehow the playback is only working properly using Windows Media, Nero and VLC player. For Divx and a few others, the playback is very slow.

Rally Websiode Intro/Teaser

Hello, I'm a rally driver, and I have started a little side project for the 2008 season of producing recap/videoblog webisode type production for my team.

Below is an intro piece I have worked on for the first VLOG that will be released once I have some good footage from the first rally with our new rally car (In Apri I believe). It introduces the characters, and the team, and really was a practice for me in editing/shooting. I drive rally cars, not usually film them, but I am trying to do both, and learn about quality production.

It was filmed with an Xacti HD1a (except the older rally footage, that's a mishmash of web vids from 2005). I am trying to produce something that has a little more "production value" than your standard VLOG.

Please let me know what you think. I am more interested in hearing any critiques you may have on the editing/animation/coloring. IE The technical aspect, as I realize there is not an abundance of footage yet.

Thanks!

It was a Mamiya 645 film camera, Joe picked it up, re-attached the back, and no problems!

New Student Film

Hey guys, this is my first post on this forum, but I've been reading your threads for a while and decided to join this great filmmaker community. I'm a student film maker currently going to a community college. I'm currently 19 and haven't done a video since high school. I finally took a film course and worked on my first two projects while I was in college. Anyways, I shot this project with my friends and it was very time consuming. I was taking 20 units and had college applications, but I put this video first. Please check it out and some critique would be cool. Don't be too harsh we have a lot to learn still =D. We used a CB105 shoulder mount for stabilization and used some $20 home depot lights for some lighting. The budget was really low, we used whatever we had access too.

This is basically a music video with a full storyline and no lip syncing.

-Shot with Panasonic DVX100B
-5 days filming
-2 days post production
-edited on Sony Vegas 7
-lots of pre-production

Here are two links.

Youtube (lower quality):

Stage6 (Higher Quality): http://www.stage6.com/user/westscape/video/1977322/

P.S. if anyone is interested we're going to complete more projects in the near future. Thanks alot! =D

Cabo wedding

Happy new year everyone!
This is my latest wedding video
(of course the highlight is when photographer Ben Chrisman narrowly escaped being dragged into the pool by the groom):

Ok, I'll be the first to bite...

You had some great shots in there, comparable to some of the best around, but I completely didn't get the edit.

You went from this effect ladened 3D flying camera picture in picture thing at the beginning then suddenly faded down the song at a place that wasn't a natural break and went into another song and a completely different style of edit. This completely threw me. You abruptly changed a few more times in the thing too. Maybe somehow soften these out by finding a natural transition in the songs?

I do like parts of the edit. I thought you did the whole fun/party/dancing thing well, but again it just didn't go with the pieces around it. I guess if you can take one thing away from this, it's that you might want to work on your flow a bit. Even things out.

It looks as if you're in the right kind of market to make lots of money. Ultimately if they like your work and are willing to pay big bucks for it, my opinion doesn't matter, but I just wanted more out of it cause the shooting was so strong.

Hey Ethan, thanks for the comments, I see what you're saying.

I guess I should explain that the entire wedding video was 48 minutes and I took out my favorite pieces (one from the beginning, two from the middle, and the final song) and pieced them together for the online highlights.

But you're right, there are some pretty abrupt transitions between the sections. Maybe if I use some video with natural sound to bridge the gaps between the sections?

Thanks again,
Vlad

Matt,

What you have there looked great to me. But like you, I'm a driver not a video specialist. Funny that I have the same Idea as you, to produce a vidcast for my 360 sprint car team.

I was impressed with how you included the title graphics into the shots. Well done.

HD footage of Sao Miguel.

I’m leaving to Sao Miguel, Azores today and 2 days ago I’ve decided that I should put together some of the clips that I shot in August 2005 the last time I was their. My trip will be around 3 weeks so I may or may not get a change to go online during that time.

I don’t have time to put together all them so I’ll put the rest online when I return. Keep in mind that the originals look much, much better because the resolution in this clip is 1280x720 and the bit rate is only around 3.2Mbps using Nero Digital (h.264). I’m planning on uploading to DivX Stage6 with a bit rate at least twice that.

Anyway, the last time I put together a file online, the resolution was higher and the bit rate was much higher but each clip was an annoying 1 second each.

PS: Besides a computer, it’s also compatible with a PS3.

Borat-style movie about a crazy gamer

We just finished production on our first movie, called 'Wrath of The 1337 King'. Mostly shot with a very simple setup, in a lot of scenes even the setup being only the HV20.

Check it out at http://www.wrathofthe1337king.com


If you're a gamer (especially if you're a WoW-player) you might love it, if not you may still think it's hilarious.

Let me know what you think!
