Hi All,

First time using this camera, and very happy with the results. Shot on Nikon lenses, with simple fluro tube lighting.


If you like it, maybe chuck us a vote on the competition we're entering it in :)

Disturbing to say the least.

For real. GREAT JOB! Filming, sound, light, effects, acting!!!! Little sick on the story, but hell... We watch fucked up shit everyday. But, I watched and I ENGAGED! FS100 looked great too!

Wauw... :D This is uplifting to see. I mean... a proper production and all. Good to know that the camera can turn out something this good. Also... considering I did like the first saw movie, they story was sick, but what the heck... I liked The Cube as well, so my mind is just twisted.

Awesome! Some blown highlights (yeah I know Im anal on that) but never the less awesome.

As much as I hate torture porn horror, there is no doubting the strong reaction you provoke in the film. Pretty much within the first 30 seconds I forgot that the FS100 had anything to do with anything. Btw, the performances you got were quite exceptional. Very believable terror. Great sound design! Crucial! I laughed that there seemed to be one of the victims doing the 'Jules Bible schtick' from Pulp Fiction. Nice touch.

Nice work, very well made! Great performances by the actors as well.

Man that was friggin INSANE!!! lol. But I watched every minute. Kind of like driving by a car accident and looking to see the carnage. Except yours has more. :) The Fs100 looks amazing, this looked just like 35mm but cleaner, to my eyes.

can you tell us about the set, was it done on stage? (as far as the effects go, the metal box that crushes the head), details, fill us in. who thought of the story? and is theer any behind the scene footage?

"Cast in order of death"? Terrific... Well done :)

who thought of the story?
I'm pretty sure it's an adaptation of a Raymond Carver short story.

I don't think so, I've never heard of Raymond Carver. As far as I know, this all came from my wifes twisted mind :)

Are you sleeping in the same room wit her?

...just asking

Usually with one eye open, yes

My goodness. This was brilliant. I'm not one for torture porn at all but the acting really sold it. Outstanding ending too!

As for the look - I think it was pefect for the FS100. A bit sterile and clean, but still with control over DOF. I do see the blown highlights mostly on the bridges of people's noses, and wonder if that was for effect or just the camera sucking again with highlights.

That was all in the grading, I thought the camera actually handled the highlights pretty well.

We're falling behind a little in the votes for this contest....if you enjoyed it (if that is indeed the correct word) please chuck us one, or spread the word.
