I was forced to watch on my wifes home computer (hate it) ((she is ordering a brand new dell laptop next week)) and it was obvious these were the lower res versions. That being said:
That is some really great work. The compostion, the imagery, the editing, the effects...
TheoLed, you have talent. Period. This si some of the best work I have seen yet submitted by Panny users. Most of the stuff submitted is, well, you know...
But this raises the bar. Serious. Great work.

By the way. Watched the second video (Shalim) and:
DITTO! You have talent. Great work and inspiring. Like I said, you have raised the bar about 6 notches above all of the other stuff posted. I'l love to see this on a my t.v. :(
I'm really impressed. Can you tell?
Any insight you care to share with your fellow DVX'ers?

My advice is to not focus so much on the technical aspect of it, but the look...that is what being a great DP is all about...Sure you need to know how to use the gear but so many people get so caught up in it they forget it's more important to learn how to compose, light and filter. Practice with your camera forgetting about the settings and look at whats in the frame...Is the hall behind you too dark...Don't touch the master ped, light it...Is the subject too flat, block the light on one side of him...I learned alot from studying the impressionistic painters...and they didn't have any buttons at all... ;) Thanks for the compliments.
Well said. I can take that to heart. I often catch myself screwing around with the settings... Guilty!
I think the comp is a huge factor. I'm also a huge art fan (I've studied somewhat and am a practicing artist ((like everything else never have enough time for it)))
I see your point in the masters work. Anyway, great stuff.

I agree with John - some great, great work. Good luck with it.
I'm curious about how you moved the camera in both "Simple Lies" and the "Shalim" videos. What kind of dolly/cranes are you using?

I too noticed some interesting camera moves. Kind of matrixy (is that a word?).
I had an idea with the DVX...
Can't we set it up to shoot in the 'animation or stop motion' mode (you know, the part where you can have it shoot X amount of frames a second) and manipulate in post the still images?
Am I making sense right now?

I am pretty interested in seeing the video after hearing all these feedbacks! Can someone pls point me to the right place?

Is it just me or is there no video here?
The first entry is from John Hudson commenting on the video. But I do not see a post that contains a link to t he video....

That is weird! Maybe homeboy removed it?
Zoom, you know anything about this?
Too bad... They were excellent!

Sorry boys, all my work will be back up in high res by the end of the week.
