A Blade for the Dead

Hi,

Here's my latest short, filmed with a Panasonic GS400. It is a 10 minute Giallo horror thriller (37Mb - takes up to 10 mins to download). I hope you enjoy it. Please let me know what you think.

I liked it a lot. I have to say the digital blood was not my taste and would have prefered some corn syrup and food dye but I understand that cleaning it up really sucks. Very nice video.

Mark, nice job on the lighting. I like your placement of the shadows on some of the shots.

Thanks Eric. I did put a lot of effort into manipulating the shadows.

Very cool, but I agree that the digital blood looks abit corny... Regardless, it was cool and kept me on the edge of my seat!

Cheers Simon. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm not the best exponent at digital effects. In fact it was my first stab (forgive the pun!)
