I dont think anyone's responding to your thread because
nobody wants to have to download Slide, its kind of an
annoying software.

but I did, and I thought the footage looked pretty good,
but hard to really assess much with just stills.

what festival r u running it in?

I'll keep a lookout.

Ok, now I'm going to uninstall Slide.

Just to let you know, I have looked into that alot and all most all film festivals dont care where shorts have been shown, maybe some european festivals are different...but well sundance is about as big as they get in america and they dont care, neither did toronto, or slamdance, or well any of them I've seen so far.

Hello Aaron,

The stills look great. A few questions.

What was your lighting package (for the show and for other areas)?

Have you got more close up grabs from the show section, the ones you have are quite wide and I cant make them out too well (probably more my own systems fault)?

What was your schedule/crew like for the film?

Echoing the other comments here, very few film festivals will begrudge you internet exposure, especialy with a trailer (which would also prompt a fair bit more feedback).

good stuff!!

thanks

as for lighting package i had a 2 foot 4 bank kino, 2 2k fresnels, 3 redheads, 2 650W fresnels, 1 1200W hmi followspot (to create the coldness of the stage on tungsten film with the punch over a 30 meter throw)
and the other stuff like reflectors, flexifill, bunch of cee stands, cutters

as for schedule we shot the whole film in one day
we had her majestys theatre in melbourne for the day for ourselves, (very expensive, virtually half the budget,) which is why we did it in one day, so because we had it to our selves, we did many recces before hand and set lighting plans for all the different areas of the theatre, and had our crew set up all the areas when we got there, while we began shooting the first scenes, that way we would only have to tweak by the time we reached the other areas of the theatre.

its a 5 minute short film, with many levels of interpretation


as for crew
we had :
a director
1st ad
dop/camera
1st assistant camera
2nd assistant camera
continuity
Gaffer
Audio Visual Technician
4 electrics
theatre Technician
catering

we didnt have sound as the film is basically a silent film which the story is only told with the moving images, which was great and a challenge to work on as a cinematographer as it pushed me even harder with my lighting and composition decisions to have each shot carry the meaning and tell the story.

as for festivals the goals for this one is berlin venice and cannes and as i understand it they dont accept films that have been broadcast before including the net...???
