    sick man :)
    I thought some of the camera work was a bit shaky, so I wanted a second opinion :)

    Great additions so far guys!

    For anybody who hasn't been added yet, could you send me a PM? I haven't been super good at following this thread, and it would be really helpful if you could just shoot one over.

    *All constructive here not slamming you in any way.
    The camera work was a bit shaky and noticeable from the beginning but i thought that it was being incorporated into the story but it didn't seem to happen. Then after the first 30 sec or so it seemed like a homemade music video then back to a dramatic story and it all left me confused. I don't get the soda caps but that might be a cultural difference? Then you also have around ten sec of nothing on the end while the song is finishing that need to be filled or credits written or something (just not blank).
    The positives is that your song choice was really good for the subject matter. It just seemed like you had problems with the storyline? You seem to have a really good eye and with some practice you'll be making some really interesting and good vids! Hope I helped! :toast:

    The bottlecap thing was supposed to be this girl being an alcoholic or whatever (But I'll pretend it's a nod to Fallout) I didn't come up with what's on screen at any point, it's for my friend's art project and my film coursework doesn't entail having a good narrative (or one at all) so I just went with it haha.
    I didn't want the music to end so abruptly though :p
    I'm gonna get marked solely on different camera angles and editing

    Good stuff i just watched the short vid and fantastic work, so the challenge was to use no narrative? [yikes?] Was the camera hand held i take it, have you got access to a tripod that can pan , it would be more steady if you didnt use it already. Music was interesting, thankyou for posting.

    It's advised we don't bother with a narrative, but rather to focus on how you'd convey a point with certain angles. e.g. a 1 minute clip of someone walking down the street angrily or something
    Yeah I got a tripod but it doesn't have a handle so my pans are SHIT :(

    Never mind ,maybe you can improvise to fix it somehow? Have you seen the "film noir" style of camera work, used in the late forties and fifties, films like -The cabinet of doctor caligari, [Bunuel i think] early hitchcock, another called -et chien andalou, amazing use of lighting and cameras to create dark and ominous moods. Great to see you creating!!!:)

    I've always wanted to make a noir film! But I've never seen one, plus I'd have to write a sensible script or something. Can't have a noir film me doing my weekly shop :p

    I never watch (REALLY) old films because I never feel I can enjoy or appreciate the narratives, but I'll give it a try some day :]

    Most of these shots are in a moving vehicle but the T2i can handle that.

    Was the second shot moving, or was that a long exposure?

    If its in a moving vehicle, you would need special equipment to keep the camera focus on the mountain to keep the exposure that long.

    These are from my recent trip to Lanzarote. It's one of a group of Islands created by underwater Volcanoes. When you are there and think about that it's kinda scary to realise how powerful the earth is.

    Scorched earth/volcano.

    Taken from inside a toursist bus :mad: This is at the top of the now (partially) inactive volcanoes.

    And this is one of the underground tunnels carved by magma flow. It's supposed to look like an abyss with a stone bridge, but it's actually a shallow pool of water reflecting the top of the tunnel.

    This is correct It was a 300sec. exposure at ISO-100 F/8. It took me many shots to get the background in focus:banghead:

    The first 3 are tripod rest are in the vehicle with fast shutter speed. I took over 1000 pics on this trip, and i have taken over 11,000 pic's with my camera in less than 1 year:pimp:


    This is what a 40sec. looks like
