don't know if i should put this in the dvx100 forum or here, but here it is...this is a short scene from a feature i'm working on. just in case you want some "back story"...officer juarez is at home, his partner, officer camby, was shot earlier and he's about to get a visitor.

Scene 117

thumbs down from me because of the following;-

1. Actors voices could be clearer to the ear.
2. Visually uninteresting.
3. Audio.....could you of done a better job?

I dunno LeVon, looks like you didn't put much effort into this. <_<

thank you, but i haven't edited the audio...maybe i should've mentioned that earlier. all that was straight from the camera and no it wasn't the on camera mic.

as for visually uninteresting...was i supposed to have strippers dancing in the background?

Levon, from a technical aspect, I thought it looked really good for a digital shoot. You nailed exposure right on buddy. Props for that. I agree that the audio was way too low but if this is a rough cut, you can work that out. Your lighting was good IMO but it was very straightforward. Maybe that is what LondonFilmMan is referring to.

As far as his comment about you not putting much into it, I think he is being unprofessional and caddy. A critique is something that is to include suggestions for improvement, advice, etc...not silly childish comments that cannot benefit anyone.

Keep up the good work!

P.S.- I would love to see what you could do with film if you worked on it.

now that's a compliment and i thank you. regarding lighting i'm still trying a few things, but i think i have something that might work really well. i just want to state i'm on purpose doing this production "garage band" using extreme low-budget stuff and that brings me to the audio. at the time of that shoot i didn't have a full set-up so the mic was going straight to the camera and wasn't on a boom...it was on a mic stand. my original plan was to ADR everything, but now i've got some audio equipment and things are going better, but i'm still planning on some ADR.

again thanks and check out my friends work on this forum...
