That's cool. Did she want your voice in particular? I just ask because there are commercial versions of the NIV on CD and MP3 CD for reasonable costs.

Chanukah vs. Christmas (commercial parody)
Hi there Everyone,

I just finished a short film called "Chanukah vs. Christmas". It's a parody of the Mac vs. PC commercials.

It was shot with the Canon XL1 and edited in Premier Pro 1.5


I would welcome any feedback on the film.

That was great. I saw the Happy Kwanzaa coming but then, who didn't?

I think the Christmas guy got the spirit of the Mac/PC actor a bit better than the other fellow.

She wants her husband to do it. Getting me to do one of the books is really just a dig at him to get off his tail and get busy. So it was not my voice exactly, just that I am her brother-in-law and her husband might be inclined to step up to the plate in some form of competitve manner, I suppose.

Star Wars/LOTR fan film

Just a cheesy little thing I put together a few years ago with my first camera (1 chip Canon ZR 60) and about 1 hour of filming and 8 hours of editing...

its about 30 seconds long and lame but my neighbors always get a kick out of it.

The Barracks
We're currently in the scripting stage of a psychological horror and i thought it would be helpfull to have a short trailer that we could show when submitting our business plan and script to scottish screen for funding. I'm hoping it will also come in handy when gathering crew.

I had to come up with somethin i could rig shoot and appear in myself, which as you can imagine limits what you can do when trying to acheive a half decent cinematic look.

Anyway have a look and let me know what you think.


I just tested the download and i was getting about 10kbs which is unacceptable, maybe you'll have better luck. If not here is another link, it will be lesser quality but what you gonna do.

:EDIT: it seems to be working now

change the video size at bottom right.

Good stuff Andy,.....

Could you tell us about your setup? cam/nle/jib/lights, etc. It looked great for what you had to work with,......actually it just looked good period. How did you achieve the first shot of the forest?.....vue? or was it real? Did you use a stabilizer? if so,....which one?


Andy Graham December 28th, 2006 05:40 AM

Thanks Ian, I shot it with an HD100 in DV 4:3 mode and cropped it....boring i know but it was before the 5.1.2 upgrade for FCP. The first shot was some stock footage i had shot from a small plane for a previous project and i just did a day for night colour correct on it, in fact the whole thing is day for night.

I used A cable system that i built for the tracking shots, the shot where I jump over the log i'm just pushing the rig myself before i let go. Its a very simple but effective design that allows one person to operate it. http://camerashyltd.livedigital.com/content/996856/

I did the editing in Final Cut and the type face in motion.

I took a risk with the AK47, it was a deactivated gun but still illegal to run around in public with it. It was in a woodland off the beaten track but i still wouldn't recomend it without telling the police, i was paranoid the whole time in case i got reported by a dog walker.

Thanks for the feedback Ian I appreciate it.

Waking Up
I was hired by to make this short film to be used as a prelude to his proposal to his wife. They were going on a trip to Hawaii, where Sanjay was going to propose they renew their vows. He wanted to do something special to surprise her and as a set up for the proposal.

It was shot and edited on an extremely tight schedule only a few days with no script... only some ideas, some basic directing, and some quick and dirty editing... all the while trying to keep the project a secret from his wife, which was tricky since we needed to film her (we came up with a clever ruze: I was looking for a couple to film for a demo project).

I enjoyed it.Good job.Just watch for those tricky focusing problems.

Good luck.

Focusing, white balance, even lighting was pretty much a hack job due to limited time constraints. We had to shoot fast and forgo our egos' want for perfection.

I'm glad you liked it. It was shot with a Canon GL2, edited using Final Cut Pro 4.5 HD.

Steven Gotz December 29th, 2006 04:06 PM

Well, to be honest, it was pretty long and repetitive if you don't know the people involved.

It has a nice look to it though.

Demo Reel: Opinions Welcome
I'm putting together a demo reel to help me in pursuing an editing position with the company I work for. Based on my experiece and abilities, I'm working towards an asst. editor position at best, and would love any input on what I have:


I've tried to show a variety of work, from :30 sec spots to longer interview segments. I also shot/scripted all of the content, except for the spec trailer, but I am focusing on the editing in this reel.
