Looks good, Richie. I'd watch that movie. I doesn't hurt that you got the chick from "Species" in it. BTW, I just have to ask....what is it with you and dogs?! :D B)

The next one doesn't have a dog in it.  Good point though....I'll add one in.

Thanks David.  Cinematography under the direction of Stephen Whitehead.

 

Colour is the Rec. 709 plug in for FCP.  Best I can do for now until we hit the main colour correction suite.

OH, didn't realize you were also producing, congrats,buddy. From our earlier conversions on the project, I somehow got the impression you were a hired hand on this one. So are you the soul producer on this or is anyone working with you or executive producing? I don't need names or anything, I'm just curious. Do you have distribution already in place? I'm guessing yes on both counts.

Yes, sole producer.  Also writer and editor.

 

Distribution coming along well, I'll have more details as the final deals gel.  I need a finished product first, and I won't have that until Cannes.  Several territories were pre-sold as part of the financing structure, which includes some major foreign broadcasters.

Good deal. let me know how it works out. I'm rooting for ya! I'm actually putting together a sizzle reel for my project which we're shooting next week. My Exec. producer thinks, given the storyline, it will cinch us financing for the project. He has over 100 movie credits mostly as either producer or more often executive producer, so we'll see what happens. Whatever happens, it's great to get into production again and I have a beautiful, VERY talented actress to work with along with a really creepy monster and gunfire so it should be a blast!! B)

IMO this is a BIG improvement on the longer version. :)

 

Theres still some issues with the computer effects, which are somewhat less than convincing, not sure if you can do anything about them tho.

R,

 

Wow! It already looks really good! A few minor issues here and there but impressive for just a plug in!

 

Say what you want about working with children and animals but I think those children do some preety awesome acting! :)

R,

 

The chroma key out the windows of the plane. When the plane bursts into flame, and when the plane crashes. Mostly things to do with the plane, although said plane looks FANTASTIC when flying over the water. :)

Maybe the unconvincing fire will look better once it's been graded tho?

 

Watched the second trailer again and I like the actor who plays the pilot too! Shame he gets killed early on.

 

So how did you do the bear? Is it antimatronic? It looks really, really good! :)

 

Second trailer is a world away better than the first one. The new trailer mostly works for me whereas the first one wasn't working very much. In fact I found it quite off putting. No problems at all with the cinematography tho, looks first class, esp for something ungraded! (Wow!)

 

Aside from the issues tho you do seem to have captured something that reminds me a bit of childrens films from looooong ago! Can't think quite what they might be off the top of my head but theres an atmosphere that is reminicent of stuff from a few decades back. It reminds me more of those old classic films which is very impressive given it's shot on a video camera. Although it's not just the cinematography but everything about it. The little plane probably helps! ;)

 

Think you are definitely onto something. :)

Chroma key on plane windows comped in FCP, I expect the compositor to do a better job.

 

Plane crashing I think is quite adequate.  When the plan flies up-side-down in Flight, you know that's not a real plane...right  :D

 

What do you think of the all CG bear? You didn't mention him, the CG guys did a great job on him and got you fooled there, eh?

R,

 

I do mention him! I'm like "how did you do the bear?" He is very impressive! Is he completely CG then? I saw you had a big bear model, I wondered if you were getting clever and he was part real, part computer animated? Bear is outstanding. No doubt in my mind he was a real bear for sure. He even made the right kinda noises! :)

 

You may well get away with the quick shot of the plane crashing if you fix the other stuff earlier that draws attention to the fake plane, it's just by then you've had your attention drawn to it for a sustained sequence.

 

Hey! Keep in mind that I'm telling you this stuff to be helpful, not to be a bitch! ;)
