Paper Dancing you say? Well what is that? That's exactly why there is a documentary about it.

and as a last resort, youtube


Any comments are greatly appreciated. Sadly, this took a couple of weekends, and poor planning throughout. I've really began to understand the importance of pre-production, because most of this was thought up right before we shot it. We used an sm57 mic, the stock dvx100b, a DIY dolly and a glidecam 2000 pro.

As for lighting, we just used natural the whole time. I don't have enough money for lights at the moment.

Thanks,
Michael

That was really nice. Great use of available lighting on the interviews. They got a little dark towards the end, would have been nice to have a light background behind their dark side to show more an outline of them.

But still, great work. You got the exposure dead on and the shots near the beginning with the kid on the couch looked excellent.

Thank you for your feedback!

I am still learning how to use the glidecam. It was pretty tough while shooting this though because it was really windy outside, so it made it a lot harder to control the thing. But even if it isn't balanced perfectly, it still helps out a whole lot just because it has the gimble which takes out most of the shakiness.
