Right, I've been making short artsy-fartsy super8 films before getting into staged narrative fiction, so it's only natural that there should be some mistakes. Bear in mind that all of my crew consists of close friends most of which knew nothing of filmmaking until now. I'm not using this as an excuse, because I think it looks really good, but as I said, we're all newbies and we would like to learn. It's not a student film, it's not affiliated with any school, it's just a privately financed little short.

I was the only one in the crew who actually had any previous experience of filmmaking, rendering me the director, DoP, gaffer and effectively the autocrat.
We had to our disposal, 3x300W Ianiro HD lights and 2x Falcon Eyes (Kino-Flo like) lights.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any pointers, don't spear the harsh ones.

So here are the stills from the camera, quickly graded in Color (B-W, Film look, added grain):

Its quite grainy, what ISO did you shoot at?

As this is a cinematography forum some moving image wouldn't hurt, perhaps you could post your film somewhere online and provide a link. Its hard to say anything constructive based on these stills.
