A Good Example

Jay Gladwell posted a notice about an iFilm short called "Sweet" at the thread below. It's a good example of how all of the key elements have been assembled to achieve the "film look"

I'd like to follow up with another example, this one using the P+S Technik Mini35 adapter. It's a trailer for a German film, so it is "auf Deutsch," not English, but you don't need to understand the dialog -- just check out the look.

Location is www.dvinfo.net/media/mini35/Familienrevier.mpg

It is a 40 megabyte download. Should load fine in a Quicktime player. Let me know here if you have any problems downloading or playing it.

Chris that truely is impressive, really pulls itself very far away from a typical camcorder look.

But what is with that DISGUSTING grain, it is so overdone, i really hope that is the result of bad encoding and not camera or editor issues.

Good day.

It's a relly nice short! Does anybody know which camera was used?

Thanks

The mini 35 only fits a few cameras, so I'm going to guess the XL1 (or PAL version since it orginated in Germany). I know P + S Technik was working on versions to fit a few Sony models. I don't know if they are on the market or not.

Doesn't that one look a Clint Eastwoodish??

Impressive done in DV. I did think the ending looked a little like one of the Clint Eastwood's 'Dirty Harry' series except this time with chicken instead of coffee...
