Hi Richard,

As you shot 4 perf 35, you could retransfer those scenes to HDCAM SR.

Stephen


Yep, there is plenty of picture there to pull down. Again the magic of film over you know what.

At this stage I'll wait and see what the chorus says, right now I'm handing it off to post audio and saying go nuts.

i like it very much

made me want to see the move

one thing i think you should think of (if you talk of over done)

is to use voice over i think it will add to the trailer

and also check the sound on my computer its sound with no bass and a Little distorted

i will give extra on the bass:)

good luck

Pitty....you where this close to getting a free copy.

R,


That was the ONLY thing I didn't like about the advert. :(

Oh well, I just guess I'll have to hate Phil Rhodes' guts for ever and ever. <_<

"I have a bit of a problem with this scene, because until I paused the frame and examined it, it wasn't really clear that it wasn't meant to be the wolf. (Of course, I'm only looking at a small picture)"

That's odd....I've litterally had a dozen people watch that scene and say "wow that looks real!"


I guess that means you can advertise '12 out 13 filmmakers agree...the monster looks real!'

Absolutely nothing. I just felt spontaneous at that mmoent.

Indeed, Phil. If every industry power (like yours truly) hates your guts you'll really get somewhere.

I didn't really mean it, Phil. You're one of the funniest people I know. :)

Good grief Steven this is the 21st Century, what are you trying to watch it with an abacus or Sony walkman? :D

Download QT7 from the Apple site, it's free.

Thanks for the feedback Tom.

I'm in the process now of yanking some shots and having it all scored. This because of "some people" on this board who whined and complained about it. :rolleyes:

Seriously, it was good feedback, I can fix it!!

Tuesday my hours on this thing will drop by 90%, picture locked, auto assembly begins. I never thought this day would come.

R,


I sold my abacus a month and a half ago. I'll try downloading it but I think I've already got 7 on here, I just HONESTLY hate QT, it's the ONLY codec I seem to have trouble with. Trust me if I click on a video and QT comes up, I usually just close the window and move on and if it was anyone else's work, I wouldn't even bother dealing with it but I really do want to see this trailer. I actually have a feeling this is going to be pretty good. I got faith in ya, Bud. B)

I can't find any video on the web that is not QT, it seems to rule the world.

I can always overnight a DVD to you via FedEx if you can't play it.

Great stuff Richard!

Fantastic lighting. I agree with Daniel that the title should stay a little longer, but otherwise I liked it a lot.

I'm actually surprised to get the number of lighting comments I have, thanks to all.

Maybe I've just seen it too many times, 1000 plus and climbing.

There are two scenes where the lighting was "blown" though. I mean the average viewer may not consciously think that, but DPs will :D

Oh well, next time I think I have pretty much decided to direct only, and leave the DOP job to a pro.

Then again I may drive the DOP so crazy he quits after the first day, "so you think the light should go there..........?" :)

I'll work as a DoP for only $5,000CDN a day.

It's my best possible offer. When do I start?

Well Mathew I just priced this out on Friday for a series of commercials I'm shooting next month. It's $3500.00 CDN/day for a top guy.

That's some one with a serious reel and CSC membership.

R,

FYI, $5000.00 CDN a day is about 12 pounds.

Have to say Richard, I like the trailer and I think it'll do well.

He He, Michael is a crew member just so you all know.

If any of you are shooting in Toronto I can recomend Michael as a hard working and reliable, grip, gaffer assistant, PA, what ever. He can also edit.

Michael will be on my commercials next month. I'm directing four spots with a bigger crew than I had on the feature. Also the budget on these spots is much larger than my feature budget.

Can any one explain the crazy economics of this business? :blink:

R,


I'll take you up on that when you finish with the film because I'd like to see the movie. I did download QT7 and that solved the problem (just use the right version, go figure :rolleyes: ). Raquel Lake is hot. She kinda reminds me of Ashley Judd. How'd you do the wolf / dog, it looked cool.....also, How in the Hell you you get permission to use the abandoned prison?...IF indeed you DID get permission, if not and you shot there anyway, you're my new hero. I'd like to see more. B)

Deal Or No Deal model, case number 15.

How'd you do the wolf / dog, it looked cool.....

VFX guys in the UK re-built the head of a real wolf.

also, How in the Hell you you get permission to use the abandoned prison?...IF indeed you DID get permission, if not and you shot there anyway, you're my new hero. I'd like to see more.

Of course I got permission, hard to shoot there with a film crew using their power for lights. The Ontario government gave it to me for a song. That place is 160 years old, instant film set!!
