Symbiosis - 1minute green short - FOTE

Hey guys

My film for the FOTE 1 minute film comp is now complete and entered. thought I'd throw it up for some general consumption here. Um'd and arr'd about which forum this should be on...but this will do for now I guess.

High res (60)mb

Low res

Unfortunately some of the shots had quite subtle lighting and black tones which you tube hasn't been kind too....but hey ho.

Cheers again
Mat

Hi Mat, I like your film. Hope you do well in the comp!
Yes, some of the shots were a bit dark, (the scenes of the people playing that game together,) but I don't think that was a negative thing with your film.
I liked it that way. So I wouldn't worry too much about that.

It might be because I was viewing the low res version, but the text at the end was a little bit hard to read. (just a minor detail)

Hi Mat, a good message to the world! I liked your style of filming.
Where did you get that awesome footage of the tiger and the bear? Hope you do well in the competition. I was hoping to participate myself but didn't get any time!

Thanks for sharing

Matt,

It was a nice bit of video. I liked the end, but to be honest I would try to work on a more graphic end with the quote!!

I did not mind the darkness mentioned, do not think that has any negative effect.

Nicely done!!


curiously, what is the fote competition??

graphic end

Mat,

Sorry for getting back so late on this. Begin of school year and I have five new courses requiring prep every day, just rotten busy.

what I ment about the graphic end was to use something in the background, instead of black , that actually pertained to the symbiosis theme.
A thought of a moving colored back ground where the colors blend into each other and work symbioticly on each other is just one thought.

The font could be a little more dramatic too. Oc course I watched the low res and that has its effect as well.
