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:

I'm both videographer and photographer. Recently I try to use BMPCC as a still photography tool. Ya it's experimental but it gives some nice and unique results and images. Why do this when there are 16-36Mpix cameras?
see this post in my blog:
I was looking up some information on what Canon had in store for the future and I ran across this forum. It's filled with photographers that are angry Canon is giving any love to the video world! I couldn't believe how many people were upset.
Personally I think if you can't pick up any Canon or Nikon DSLR above their very basic entry models and take decent pictures the issue isn't with the camera. Once 18 megapixels was hit I would have thought most people would be satisfied with the megapixel count in APS-C world. Video is the part of the camera that needs a lot of work. But I guess there a substantial number of people that disagree with me.
Anyway it was interesting hearing some of the other voices yelling at Canon. Here is a taste...
That was just a sample of page one. So who should Canon listen to? It's weird. I have never seen such a divergent set of opinions about a product line. And both worlds seem totally unaware the other exists.
I'm doing a compilation of tabletop lighting tents/booths for the photography of small subjects,.
I found this.....
Anyone know of others that are really good and not remakes of the famed 'Ikea Hamper' ? The article I'm writing is about jewelry / luxury good photos.
