    They've been drilling video into our heads the last year at school and I finally gave in. I decided to pick up a D90 yesterday to get me started. I figured since I have the trinity and a few prime lenses, I might as well play around with it. This is my first attempt at video...and I wanna know what OT thinks :noes:

    I'm handing it in next week so before I do that I wanna see what edits you guys would suggest (and what you think in general). The assignment was just multichannel...so incorporating two screens. Other than that, it was up to us.

    Thanks. I felt like the soundtrack was necessary, it didnt have as quite of a freaky feeling without it. I walk everyday to my car from the train (that same walk) and always feel like I gotta watch my back, so I figured I'd recreate that. I used my friend though, cause a small girl would seem more appropriate.

    Yeah, and that was the hard part in editing I had to match it up...what I did is where one leaves off the other one continues, or picks up so it wouldn't feel as choppy (when I was using multichannel). I see a lot of my mistakes as I'm watching it but I'm not gonna go crazy, it's only my first attempt. I'll try to fix it for the next one.

    white balance and deinterlacing are your friends

    probably should've picked up a canon if you wanted to do video though :hs:

    I know about the interlacing...its a cheap camera body, I expected that. And I'm fully aware about the white balance, I thought it added mood. The "correct" white balance didn't give me the same creepy feeling.

    The problem is, I'm heavily invested with Nikon lenses. I figured a little body like that with what I own could possibly make some decent footage.

    is it normal for this camera to be all wavy when you walk with it down the stairs at the starting of the video?

    Yeah the jello-effect is really apparent when you shake it or something is moving fast (I'm learning these things, though I read about em before I got it).

    As far as nothing happening, that was kinda the point...it was kinda like "was there someone really following or was it in her head". I like to leave it open-ended.

    And Slimeball, I'll check out deinterlacing before I hand it in. Thanks

    it can, but with Nikon, you get that jelly look because of the CMOS sensor

    What would have been really cool is if in the final seconds there was a silhouette of a man standing in the shadows off in the corner somewhere.

    Much better than anything I could do.

    Major jello in the opening shot.

    WB a little too warm for my liking, especially considering the story you're trying to tell. Would have worked better if cooler IMO.

    Too many scene cuts. This may be something you were going for, but I think short movies like this work better with longer, more drawn-out scenes.

    Excellent first attempt. My only experience is from helping out on student film sets for my friends back in college. I know there is a lot that goes into making a truly good short movie.
