Hi everybody,

This is one of the exercises we do at my school.
We had two days to shot it over. One day for plates and a day on greenscreen.
I shot it on 35mm, vision 2 5218 (200T), and had 3 rolls of film.

Any feedback is welcomed.

It was done outside school. A small firm in Oslo, called Eyedrops. We got 20 h or so of work for a lot less then they should have got. The director wanted a handheld feel, so for lack of knowledge we hand-held the camera (greenscreen), so a lot of time went in to stabilizing the two flies. This is the first time I have done something like this.

The director and the sound engineer made the music from scratch. It´s a commercial for a Norwegian newspaper.

I agree with David, very slick and well done, top quality work.

David is the King of commercials in Florida so I expect he'll be coming to you with a job offer, and a six figure signing bonus, right David? :lol:

R,

Thank you David and Richard.

David, the web page for Øyedrops/Eyedrops is www.oyedrops.no. There is not much on their page, just some contact info. If you are looking for a post house in Oslo I can give you more names.

The sound was all garbled, I couldn't understand a word. It just goes to show that even if you don't speak the language, the visuals told the story. It was simple, funny and captured the audience interest. Very nicely done.
