View Full Version : Super Soaker Revenge: The Movie! Anamorphic and hacked footage galore

08-31-2010, 10:18 PM
Yes, we made a Nerf Super Soaker Grindhouse movie with our ultra-rare and powerful CPS 2000 and 3000 classic water guns. It is rumored the water canon was banned when it caused temporary blindness in a kid. This is our dramatic interpretation of that story.
Most of the 16x9 footage is Hacked GH1 shooting around 70-80mb
All the iscorama anamorphic footage is 5D2 and a couple shots with 7D

Loved it. Awesome on so many levels. Great shot continuity, sound design, and a very
professional sounding voice over.

My only nitpicking criticism is that the voice over was
a bit too much. Don't get me wrong, it sounded great, I think it just got in the way of
the visuals. From the point where you hear "One thing is not clear..." the resolution of
the conflict is revealed, taking a bit away from the climactic massive super soaker blast.
I do understand this sequence is more expository setting up a future conflict, but I
would have liked to have been held in suspense a little more and had the exposition
come after the blast. Still some great lines there and you are clearly a very talented
voice actor so take this more as an embarrassment of riches type comment.

Great work.

Thanks for the feedback so far guys. It's really helpful! I submitted it to Critics at Zacuto so hopefully we can get picked apart by Philip and Steve too. :cheesy: It's also rated well so far over on cinema5D which is cool: http://www.cinema5d.com/videolog/?p=3912 nice to have some positive support. Making it into a 3-part web series would be neat.
