This is the first narrative film i have ever made. I made it as part of a class i took last year. I used a Canon Scoopic, and B&W negative film. I edited on steenbeck, which i know nobody does anymore, but it was a great experience. I would like to know what you think.

After the Beep...

some interesting things going on thru the story....but overall it was hard to keep interest. Narrator was monotone and
boring. Obviously you're just beginning, so I say these things to only help you improve your skills, ok. :-)

I would buy a reliable light meter and learn how to read a scene and know f-stops and how the film is going to read the
light, if at all. And maybe you do already, but finding an f-stop to give you an image and lighting for a pretty picture are
two different things.
secondly, I would take some time to learn editing skills regarding the quality of your image: like gamma, contrast, blacks,
grays and highs, key lighting, fill, kicker (back lighting), then just exercise your right to forum searching in "lighting"
but most of all, keep doing more films!

keep it up and remember all the little people in the end,
christian
