Just wanted to share a short film I recently shot on Kodak 200T with a Nikon R10.  Criticisms are welcome although I really just hope you are amused for a couple of minutes.

A lot of awesome stuff. Excellent location used at the perfect time of the year, a super-8 haven with the reduced contrast from overcast skies and fallen leaves. When I saw the wooden sticks I was a bit taken aback, I would have preferred those colorful swim noodles kids use in pools.

 

But then your storyline apparently is play games don't hit each other with wooden sticks which would explain the wood sticks in the opening scene. 

 

Last shot could have been from far away, but suddenly races towards the kids to reveal their legs more playing with a ball, something that got hidden because of the hilliness of the shot.

Thanks for your response Alessandro.  It was a pretty perfect time of year to be shooting.  I was lucky to get some cloud cover on the second day because I didn't have an ND filter and once we got out of the woods the meter was really inching toward the red.  

Your interpretation of the story is interesting.  I like your thought about the swim noodles because I bet they would have been visually striking.  I went with sticks because that's what we used for swords when I was a kid.  Also, sticks fit the budget for this thing.

 

Thanks for your input!

I love it. ust awesome. And it is a perfect example how much one can achieve with a single cartridge of film stock.

Sweet moves. If you could have shot some of it at 16fps it would have added to the cool Kung Foo vibe.

 

Here's an extremely short thing I shot on an Eyemo in 35mm if you want to compare grain...

Lower fps is a good idea.  Next time, next time...

 

That Luke is swordsman to be reckoned with!
