I brought my D90 to a student film shoot I was helping on. In the downtime I ended up making a little short documentary about a director at odds with his crew. Technical details were secondary to simply having fun. Audio is straight from the camera and there are a few bits of Jello/skew (I tried to keep them to a minimum)

Hope you all enjoy!

Really hilarious. Was this staged? Or a real report of what happened? In either case it would be funny...This is feature documentary material! lol
I can relate to both cast and crew...

We were all helping on a student film shoot and since I had my D90 with me Andrew and I started making this faux documentary in the downtime. I was afraid we'd be a bother to the rest of the crew but they actually responded really positively. I guess we gave them a brief break from the stress.

That's interesting you mention turning it into a feature documentary. I'm about to lose my job at the end of january and am thinking of making a microbudget feature on the D90 in february. I know it's not the ideal camera but I think if we keep it simple/small and fun it shouldn't be too detrimental. I would also put way more effort into eliminating Jello/Skew and use my actual sound recorder.

Anyhow I'm not sure if I'd expand this story or try to develop one of the few others I have buried in my notes. What do you guys think?

as for expanding etc..., i like the length that it is, i think if you try to make it really long, you might run out of stuff (unless you already have a lot more written)

You seem to have a good narrative style, i say go in a different direction if you have the time to setup and plan. This gives you 2 months to write something, so get to it!
