TOMORROW IS TODAY trailer!

http://www.lumieremedia.com/tomorrow...orrow_trailer/

Our own Frederic Haubrich directed this film. Looks good for a film shot on HDV, huh?

Wow great looking stuff! I'm very impressed with the quality and color. Was this shot here in Florida? Also what was it shot on? The JVC-GY-HD100U?

Thanks,
Chris

Shot in May 2005 on the Z1 (50i) by Kevin C.W. Wong on the New Jersey shore.

Good ol' Frederic was helping me out with a project earlier this year (3 Sisters) and gave me the basics. Mr. Wong is a great shooter and Frederic's editing and color correcting techniques are impeccable.

Looks really good, and I'm glad to see that HD trailers are really starting to take hold. (And I'm glad that my 1.6Ghz Pentium-M laptop can play at least 720p)

Did they use a DOF device for any of it, noticed their was some fairly shallow DOF in some of the shoots.

Congrats to the filmmakers

Thanks Heath!

Thanks everyone, and thank you Heath for being so supportive!

I'd love to take all the credit for the look but what you are seeing is really Kevin C. W. Wong's incredible skills. The guy is so damn talented as a cinematographer it's sickening.

The shallow DOP was accomplished by using NDs in order to keep the iris open as much as possible without blowing out highlights. Also, most of the shots are kept far away from the subject which creates a nice cinematic feel in my opinion.

I'll tell you, we spent most of our money on decent grip equipment, food and lodging. We felt it was very important to get nice camera motion with dollies, jibs, steadycam and a great crew.

Here's some pics of the shoot:

The most important however is content and performance. The script was exceptional (written by Mark Hefti) and the performances were moving. Scout is a true talent and I think she's on the verge of exploding professionally. Mark Hefti is also another name to watch for. He has 2 films about to come out including this one.

Here's a trailer on his other film which was shot with the same Z1 camera:

Indie filmmakers out there, grab him now before he gets too hot! ;)

Thanks again for the nice words and keep on making movies!

Frederic

I'd love to work with Mark, but I just don't think I can afford him. (grin)

Frederic, you may have already answered this, but did you use CF25 while shooting in 50i?

As I wrap up some other things and re-work the script, I am about 4 months from shooting my second feature. The toughest part? Finding money after South Florida has been hit by 3 consecutive hurricanes.

Thanks,

heath

Heath,

If Mark likes the script I'm sure he can be very flexible.

No we didn't use CF25. Plan old 50i.

When the movie comes out, make sure you tell us how you cut it to get it to 24p. You've told me via email, but I'm sure everyone else would like to know.

Thanks,

heath

1. Deinterlace in FCP or AE or Shake

2. Output Dialogue and picture to 25p uncompressed

3. Conform 25p to 24p using Cinema Tools

4. Remap Dialogue track to new 24p length (will slow approx 4%) with pitch correction in STP

5. Score the 24p clip

6. Generate final 24p timebase Targa Files for Film-out.

You're doing a film out? And thanks for the tips on conforming the audio to 24p in Sound Track Pro.
