We had a great time shooting this:

Quicktime 7, guys.

Or Windows media at lower quality:

This was shoot at almost Zero budget. I hope you like it and i will be please to answer questions. Shoot in miniDV with G35 adapter, very natural light, nto very hard CC on it. I think it is the best thing i have done in PAL.

This shots were done during the magic hour. With the sea at the left, and volcanic desert at the right. We only had a 20 minute chance to shoot this scene. A white reflector is on the right, to create that mistery light (michael Bay style).

The car scene. We wanted to shoot this at dusk. They are in a futuristic Antartic, so dusks take a lot of time there. Also the landscape needed that dark atmosphere. They are in a new Merc SLK. And it was shooting on the director´s garage.
As you can see i was very ingluenced by Code46 so i wanted to make a tribute shot here to that movie.

I liked that a lot. I was a little unclear from your post, were the windows in the car shots composited, then? Especially nice work on the love scene, good choice of angles and well-cut.

And the girl even LOOKS like Samantha Morton!

I thought that was awesome... it was restrained, not busy like some dv films, but planned, architected, and executed. the direction, the art direction, the blocking was all top notch for a (dv) film. Congratulations!

Really beautiful screen grabs.

Did you crop it or use an anamorphic adapter?


All the best,

Sorry - I forgot that might not translate.

it is simply me saying kudos (congratulations) for a well shot production on such a limited crew. I'm inspired and impressed. It's like me tipping my hat to you and poking you in the rib at the same time, but in a friendly way.

Is Cinemek putting out anymore G35 adapters?

Anyone renting these in Los Angeles?

Love the work Mac, inspiring. BTW, which lenses did you use?

Thanks,

"To display or behave in an ostentatious or conspicuous way." - if that makes any sense! :)
