Hi Marcus
Try to save it on your hard disk first.
Do you have the latest quick time?

My personal taste would say to take the color, filter, and DOF effect down a notch. Regardless, that is not what is important. I think it is nice little piece with good editing and shooting that also happens to look good. Good job and "Hana Hou"! (Hawaiian for "encore!") I think most shorts could benefit from simplicity and good storytelling. This short seemed like a piece in an art museum where it captures your interest for a moment, communicates it's feeling, and then the moment is over. Short and sweet is good. BTW, you forgot to list the girl in the credits and that was the cutest part (I don't want to spoil it so I am being vague).

Albert,

Nice work. I like the look, how was it added, Magic Bullet or just color correction?

Thanks Tom
The color was done with both: MB and after effects(basic color correction and patches)

Marcus :
I agree with you, I have pushed it a bit, but it was mainly done as a test to show capabilities of the equipment I have.
I am prepping for a small (small) budget features movie and I have to convince a lot of people what can be achieved with video.

David:
thank you

Albert, that was incredible!

I am in disbelief that your little short is not film! Amazing mastery of all the 'tricks' for the filmic look.

My question is, what did you do to acheieve the film-ic frame rate?

I am now seiruosly considering getting an M2 for my HC1

I thought it look astonishing. Well done fella.

Also starting to think we need a central place for us to post our Magic Bullet settings. Also think I need to start shooting with 35mm lenses!

Magic Bullet de-interlaces 60i footage and also converts it to 24 frames/sec.

Thank you! My film school collegues have recommended that program to me tons of times but I never did try it out.

Really REALLY nice Albert

Terrific handling of the gear, lovely editing, nice grading. Very impressive.

How do you find the M2, sharp? any artificats? much light loss?

Just ordered one after some bad experiences with my Letus Flip.
