i went up to the country to visit a friend and while we were up there we decided to do a bit of filming.
kilmore is an old australian town and has a population of about 3000. its the kind of town that you can walk around in an hour or so.
i swear there is not a single rail or grindable ledge in the whole place! because of this most of the movie is trials.
please tell me what you think, cos this is my first real go at editing and stuff.
Thats cool, and there are a lot of good skills in there, I liked it. One small critisism, your camera is obviously not too good, and doesn’t seem to like movement very much, so try taking a step back from the action, and moving the camera less. It seems most of the time you’re a bit close, so the camera moves more than it needs to, the shot blurs and you can’t see whats happening. Some of the shots were fine, others were messed up by the cameraman panning to keep you in shot. When the camera doesn’t like movement, keep it still… It’ll come with time though, you’ll get used to it, and apart from that, very cool.
yeah the camera wasnt great. thanks for the criticism, i will invest in a better cameraman next time! i want to get a mini dv cam but i cant afford it at the moment so untill then i am stuck with jerky and blurry footage. oh well. better than nothing.
Ahh that was cool but I guess dont have to say it was like watching an episode of cops. I liked the soundtrack fo real and a little thought is it would be alot more zesty if you kicked up the frame with your foot during the seat drop rather than grabbing it.
Hey max, its chris from kilmore… I totally agree that the camera work was really crap but even though i was making it with you, it is a great movie. Well done using my laptop which crashed about 19 times! (piece of shit!)
C u @ tha Uni meet on Sunday!
