Hey Lewis,

This movie is about a Physiological situation of a person who is stuck in a day time, for him night never falls, he can't sleep and slowly isolate himself from the outer world.

I'm new to this myself, but after effects and various plugins is a good place to start.

http://prolost.com/ often has stuff about color correction, at a level a beginner can get into.

Hi Ramesh,

Nikon D3100 is a great budget camera, low light performance is OK, Auto focus hardly work in movie mode or you can say its very slow. I have tried this HD Ready (720p) version on 60" Projection and result were great, never get a chance to check it at Theater, in theaters 2k print runs very well so a Full HD version with this camera will be usable at theater.

thanks,
Arun Vashist
