Magic Bullet/Double 16x9 update...
Hope I'm not out of line here but some of the folks in this forum have been asking me when the film I'm been working on will be available on DVD. It's the horror movie Camp Slaughter and it's available from Amazon, Yahoo Stores and CustomFlix. More on http://www.campslaughter.com

As many of you know we shot it using a Sony PD150P and an Optex 16x9 converter. That combined with the in camera setting of 16x9 gave us Scope aspect ratio. We have over two hours of extras on the DVD. Three behind the scenes documentaries that reveals a lot of how we did it using so few light's (and so many night exteriors). If you're into doing low budget features using prosumer gear you'll find it a lot of fun and hopefully inspirational.

Im from Brazil. Can I buy it?

Martin Munthe April 7th, 2004 02:08 AM

Amazon zShops only ship within the US but you can order it from CustomFlix. They ship everywhere. Just follow the CustomFlix link at www.campslaughter.com. It's also a bit cheaper to buy directly from CustomFlix.

Where can I find a trailer?



Martin Munthe April 8th, 2004 01:49 AM

Trailer is at:

There's also a smaller one at CustomFlix.

Will the same extras be on the Swedish dvd also?

Martin Munthe April 11th, 2004 02:30 AM

Yes. There are only a few minor differences.

Glenn Gipson April 11th, 2004 11:03 AM

Hey man, I love the look of your movie. I think I'm gonna order a copy. Also, how is CustomFlix working out for you so far?

Martin Munthe April 12th, 2004 03:14 PM

CustomFlix has been a great experience. They are fast to help and everything is very well layed out. I think it's a great idea and I really hope it picks up because it removes "the middle man" that makes it almost impossible to finance and distribute independent films today.

I just ordered a copy. I'm a huge horror fan and I think I'll really enjoy this movie! I'm particularly interested in the making-of extras. I'm preparing to shoot a low-budget horror and I need all the help I can get.

I'll let you know what I think after I watch it.

P.S. - Would you mind if I e-mailed you for some advice in the future?

Martin Munthe April 13th, 2004 12:51 AM

No not at all, Joel.

I just received my Camp Slaughter DVD and I just had to say, BRAVO!!!
Absolutley incredible. Every aspect of this film is so well done, I'm dumbfounded.
The lighting and composition is top notch.
I love the "mini dolly" rail system that you used.
Did you make that yourself?
This gives me great hope and inspiration as I begin my first feature this summer.Once again, a big THUMBS UP!

Martin Munthe April 16th, 2004 02:03 AM

Thank you Douglas. Unfortunately the company (Litegrip) that made the rail system went bancrupt. It was pretty inexpensive and it's very easy to use and move around. I suppose it could be built if you've got the right tools. A simplified version could be using a skateboard dolly on an aluminum ladder.

Good luck with your film.

Great movie Martin! Interesting story, good acting... and the production quality was excellent! It looked very film-like, especially the camera movement. And the cinescope looked so nice. That really raises my hopes for the DVX100!

EDIT: my only regret is that some of the extras are in Swedish instead of English!

Trevor Trombley May 2nd, 2004 04:52 PM

Good work
Looks pretty good from the trailer, there are some niggling areas that bother me, such as the cliched girl groping along the ground trying to escape her attacker routine, but other than that, it's absolutely phenomenal.

I'm also about to shoot a horror short, sometime hopefully at the end of May, I'm scared and excited at the same time because money is at stake and i don't want to blow it, but like they said in Frank Herberts Dune, Fear is the mind killer, just gotta stay focused.

Anyway Martin, I'd love it if you gave my script a short critique if you have the time. I want everything to be perfect before shooting.
