I am intrigued by this. The shot with the titles over it is gorgeous.

I used to have an LA-7200. I struggled with diopters. This was the best solution that I found: http://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/1212-panasonic-ag-la7200-diopter-mounting-solution/

Oh hey! That's awesome! Very nice pacing in the edit. Anamorphic is working really well to give it that cinematic feel. It's so rare to see interesting sci-fi being done now a days. Although yours does have a few gun shots, it looks like it's not going to be dominated by gun fire. Which is important to me. Not because of some kind of moral issue but because it seems like everyone and their mother's first film is some kind of BlackOps or Zombie Apocalypse rip off with a bunch of guy running around with guns shooting at each other... So boring. ;-) I also love how it has this isolated but dangerous feeling like you are alone in the jungle and not only could you be attacked by other humans but who knows what else. Great job.

Very nice setting and images. I'm not the biggest fan of the LA7200 I think. Corners get a bit soft sometimes, maybe because of a big aperture? Anyway, i'm sure it wouldn't distract me when watching the final movie, the whole setting and feeling look great.

I love it, congratulations on the look achieved. I'm intrigued by lenses you used coupled to AglA7200. I have read Nikon AIS, but which? Thanks, I'm starting with my newly acquired AG and'm crazy with lenses and Close Ups. Assembling QuickHitRecord is the best idea I saw so far. Sorry for my English translator of google.

Thats from google translate?! It did a pretty good job. What's your native language?

I contacted JCH in my search for one. They're exceptionally hard to find, as they weren't sold in many stores (in Japan at least), and Kenko isn't sitting on any.

I own one of these. Got for about $350, but can't stick it properly, so worked around a solution. I'll post pictures later.

The main point is: there are other diopter sizes that can cover the la7200, you just need a different mounting.

      Well, it’s been 8 months since I completed this and almost a year since I promised @mercer to post it once completed

      I don’t really know what to say about this, it’s my first short and I wanted to try this medium after trying music, photography, drawing/painting and all sorts of writing in order to figure out myself and my depression.

      It took me months to complete due to my mental state and lack of energy and I intended to post this sooner, but life can be a little too much sometimes. Or very often in my case.

      Even though it was the hardest creative thing I’ve done in my life, (despite having a background or experience in most of the separate artforms that make up a film) I was really lost in the entire process and I developed love/hate relationship to it. I wanted to quit all the time when I wrote it, when prepping, when shooting and during the long, motivational drainage that is editing.

      But I guess that’s also where the love was born. No matter all the mistakes I made, I could somehow save it and make a decent first short thanks to the editing by re-arranging the pieces I had. Throw away most of it, stretching what was left of it, slowing or speeding up some of it, playing some of it in reverse. Dubbing in new sound (needed, cause most of it was unusable. Note to self: Don’t forget sound!

      I’ve tried to make another short since, but haven’t completed the shoot. I don’t know if I’ll finish that one, it’s just a silly comedy I made with my then girlfriend, now fiancée on my phone (This one was shot on the DVX200 before anyone asks, cameras are important on this forum apperantly, hehe) because she wanted me to make something less depressing, but I guess I’m just a gloomy guy, all my new ideas are based on my different malfunctions.

      Hopefully I’ll work up enough energy to make another, I really want to.

      Anyway, enough talking. I hope you’ll give this a go and give me some pointers, but go easy on me, okay?

      Now, pick you poison:
