"Leave Me" Short film for a 36-hour film contest

New postby Joseph Hutson on Tue Apr 14, 2009 10:31 am

From the makers of GREYSCALE, a short film "Leave Me", has been entered into a 36-hour film contest.

The short was shot with the HVX200 and the Brevis/Nikon Prime Lenses.

The only problem we had with the Brevis was that the ground glass wouldn't spin for our sunrise scene. I guess it was too cold to boot up?

To see full quality,
http://s3.amazonaws.com/videos.vimeo.co ... 5B2XeuJLc= is the link. It does have a couple of Quicktime symptoms, causing audio and video to be out of sync a bit though

If you want to see the Youtube or Vimeo versions, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_9CHsKM ... p%3A%2F%2F and http://www.vimeo.com/4112948 are the links.

Enjoy!

I've shot in 20ºF and didn't have a problem.

Next time try (in this order):
- point the unit to the sky (90º)
- give it a power boost (ac or battery)
- turn up the oscillation a little
- give it a light tap

Thanks! I wondered about this too, because we shot out in sleet for our feature film, and the wind chill was like 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
