Need an honest opinion
Posted 11 December 2012 - 08:50 PM
I´d like to ask for your very honest opinion about my last work. It´s a compilation of my graduation
film. The actual short film is 25 minutes but I made my own version with the shots that I think are my best ones.
At the moment this is as good as it gets, I use it as my cinematography showreel because I don't have something that I think is better. Which might be very depressing if this one is bad.
It was shot on RED One with Zeiss HS 16mm primes.
Please tell me what you think, if you know something similar, if it reminds you of something, what ever is on
Thank you very much,

But to critique, I thought your framing was terrific. Some of the lighting was extremely pleasing. I wasn't fond of the color grading TBH. In some scenes it looked overly yellow. Also the DOF was deeper in some subject oriented scenes than I would have liked personally. And the shot with the fellow and the light coming in the window...you blew it out on the window.
With a better medium and better color grading, I'd love to see what you could accomplish.

As for the reel itself: I would cut it shorter. My opinion is that reels shouldn't really last longer then 3 minutes, especially if the images are all from the same project....
