I was cinematographer on my friend's grad school project. It was shot on a DVX100 on very short notice (roughly a week).

The opening news sequence was done during a reshoot that I did not attend, as were two inserts whose color and lighting don't really match.
The first slow-mo shot in the flashback was my first attempt at the simulating overcranking with the DVX. It was shot in 30p; and played back at 50% speed (I'd have shot it at 60i had I known it would be slowed down so much). I didn't expect the 30p footage to look like it did. At first it was blown out, so I increased the shutter speed to 1/120 (which in retrospect probably defeats the purpose of shooting in 30p). There's still something off about the look of it which I can't quite articulate. The colors seem a little more saturated, but I'm not sure if that's it. If you have any advice on how to better deal with this, please let me know.
Other than that, I hope you enjoy the movie.
