What did you use to build the aliens?

Daniel Broadway February 7th, 2006 05:46 PM

A friend of mine at Frantic Films built the alien in 3ds max.

Out To Lunch Trailer (Comedy)
I posted some grabs and such a month or so ago but I just finished the trailer for my film Out To Lunch. It's really my first film outside of small 5 minute pieces I have done by myself. A couple of my friend's and I (all around 18) wrote the script and cast out of the drama dept. of my school. This is also my first major project with the DVX. It goes without saying that it's rough around the edges but it is such a blast doing it. We are finishing filming next week and premiering toward the end of March. This trailer will be shown at a huge school-wide assembly (that's another story) and we will hopefully get a lot of people to come and see it. So here it is:

Large (18 Meg)

Small (9 Meg)

Any/all feedback wanted! Thanks for looking!

some advice - networks
I don't know how many members here have experience dealing with national networks like Discovery or Scripps etc, but I'm in the process of selling a travel/food show and would like to know what other options there are in terms of potential clients. So far we have targeted National Geo, Discovery, Scripps, PBS and Oxygen...

I know of a few networks that are just starting out and are desperate for good content. Anyone have any more to add? Has to be sort of outdoorsy, think travel channel, host is a female...Hope that info helps..
Muchly appreciated

"Rough Road to Glory" 48hr film w/ XL2 + DIY mini35
Hello all! This weekend our production group (par-t-com) participated in a 48 hour film competition here at Ohio University. There were around 28 teams involved in the competition and nearly all of them finished on time. Here were the items we were given:

genre: mockumentary
prop: paper airplane
line: "he's just not that into you"

The result can be viewed here http://par-t-com.net/rough_road.mov. I DP'd the project along with color correction and audio mixing. I got the chance to implement my own DIY mini35 adapter for the first time and I was quite impressed with the results. I can't wait to get out there and shoot more footage with it. At any rate, we took first and were extremely thankful that our work was that well received. It could't have been done without everyone on our crew! At any rate, feedback is welcomed! Thanks for viewing the short.

That was awesome! I was into it the whole time. Nothing dragged too long or felt out of place. I think it would have been funny if the guy had been weary those goofy chemistry goggles when he was 'air testing' his paper plane, but it was funny that his eyes were drying out too.

My only complaint would be that it could have use a little bit of color correction maybe and a little better lighting. Very minimal complaint, though.

Great work!

Jeremy Hughes February 15th, 2006 09:24 AM

The concept was great! Loved the acting - you guys should turn that into a longer piece. Everything about it was fun. The other airplane guy reminded me of Dwight from the office for some reason - funny stuff. The outside shots looked great with that adapter. The inside ones looked like they could have been amped up a bit more. Did you guys shoot around Athens?

Devin Doyle February 15th, 2006 10:17 AM

Thanks guys! The interiors could have used stronger lighting, but we were going for a very minimal look to match the genre. That would also explain the color correction, I sapped the color out and upped the contrast (not really apparent on the web compressed version) to give it an older, vintage feel.

We did shoot around Athens, and we're def. going to stretch the piece out. We shot 2 and a half hours of material and had to unfortunately had to cut a lot of it to make the 5 minute cut for the 48 hour competition. There will be a longer cut in the works soon enough. Thanks for watching!

"Livelihood" Review and Festival News!
Hi All,

I posted the trailer for our zombie comedy "Livelihood" about a year ago (maybe longer!). You can still check it out at www.livelihoodmovie.com. Well, the film is finally done, and we've been sending it out to festivals and websites for review.

We just had a great review posted at www.microfilmmaker.com. We received the "Editor's Choice" for the month, and also received some nice praise as well as some useful constructive criticism. Here's a short quote from the review:

"With lots of off-the-wall creativity, satirical commentary on our society, and great requotability, this is the sort of film that has the ability to become a cult classic in the vein of Rocky Horror Picture Show, Monty Python & The Holy Grail, and Napoleon Dynamite."

Obviously I'm a little biased because they gave us a rave review, but in all honestly their site seems like a great place to submit your film for review; they're very thorough, they make great suggestions, and they really seem to understand the hard work that goes into making a low-budget digital film.

In other news, we also just found out that we've been accepted to our first film festival: The Backseat Film Festival in Philadelphia! They're the self-described "Drinking Man's Film Festival", so I have no doubt the screening will be tons of fun.

Ryan Graham
Director, "Livelihood"

MTB videos (thevishfiles)
G`day everyone.. i'm fresh off the boat here and still wet behind the ear's in the world of video shooting/editing.. i can't believe how much everyone on these forums helps each other out.. it's like one big happy family, *thumbs up*
my name is vish.. i moved from Australia to Oahu hawaii in April last year, got married and now work for the family business blah blah blah.
as you'll see from some of my videos.. i'm in love with mountain biking.. and shooting/editing it. i don't spend alot of time editing and shoot.. i just slap thing's together and fine tune if i have time, as i'm working for another production company.
i noticed people here are loving "the Collective" and just launched "Roam", i 2 wish i had that talent/time/budget/manpower/etc to use to make kick ass 16mm's like that. you guy's should see "new world disorder 6" it has very very good cable cam shots, with a more MTV style editing to it, and a killer 80's soundtrack haha.
watch these in your own time, or not.. some are long some are short.. some bits boring etc etc.. since the site was launched in May last year.. it's had 14,505 individuals come through.

ok so.. my first helmet camera attempt was this www.thevishfiles.com/helmet2.wmv

then before i left Australia, i complied a video of myself and my stacks.

this is boring, dont watch it.

then i settled in, looking for places to ride/surf etc etc

then i met some real riders

then i organised a proper shoot

this one is all helmet cam stuff, kinda boring. with a bit of bodyboarding.

ok so i get my new bike and all the fun starts here.

ok so there's a skit i shot for this, but it's not here.. so you'll be watching the 2nd Half of the complete video, plenty of stacks, knocks outs on 60ft tow in's.. etc etc

all footage shot on a Sony DCR-HC32 with a cheap .5 wide angle made in china.
i just bought a HVR-A1U a couple days ago.. inspired buy that laurence kingston guy, (he is a legend)

thanks for watching.

Vishal Gurung February 18th, 2006 05:00 PM

Holy insane.. never thought i'd see another poster named Vish on here lol... don't mean to hijack your thread but welcome!

Vish Matepi February 19th, 2006 04:27 AM

haha, no worries.. nice too meet you.
i did'nt think people here would be too interested in this stuff.
it's really the opposite to the semi professional stuff done on here.
ahh well.. the little kids like it.
