Hi guys, writer/director here working on getting my first feature up and running. I entered this comp with only 9 hours before the deadline, primarily, as when I saw the judges, I knew it was real people who make and live cinema and not funding bodies and other lack of film education types, who were going to see them. I shot it on the GH2 to test what I have always believed in, which is, that when it comes to any kind of artistic or creative expression, it is what you have to say and not what you say it on or with that counts, and nothing else, and I knew others had made full blown productions with full crews, budgets, locations and everything, so I was slightly taken aback when the judges: Paul Greengrass (Bourne films) Jeremy Bolt (Producer Event Horizon, Resident Evil films) and editor Eddie Hamilton (X-Men: First Class, Kick Ass) were unanimous as picking it as the winner!!! Here are a couple of their comments: Judges comments included Eddie Hamilton (X-Men editor)â€¦ â€˜Very cinematic, excellent use of camera, composition, editing and musicâ€¦ a tour de force, and for me the clear winner.â€™ Producer Jeremy Bolt (Resident Evil Franchise) commentedâ€¦ â€˜Subtle and visually bold. Made you think and the boys performance was very believable Âit was understated. I also thought editing, cinematography and music were very strong.â€™ Would love to know what you all think. Less than 2 mins so nothing heavy. For me the GH2 totally rocks for all the reasons that Andrew has been tirelessly cheerleading it for, I am a guerilla filmmaker and don't like the time and wasted energy associated with waiting around on film sets to do this and setting up that, ok maybe if you are spending someone elses money, however I just like to shoot and get on with it. I am really wanting to shoot my feature in exactly the same way I made this and with this camera. So am always looking for likeminded, cine-literate, passionate about film... filmmakers. Best wishes to all and rememember if you can imagine it, you can do it... the mantra of Stanley Kubrick, who is GOD, that would be Greatest of Directors and my favourite for the integrity to the purpose of what you do and how to accomplish it :-) [media]http://vimeo.com/30941061[/media]
