    Speaking of hand-held

    I liked Luis's entry (Carry On).

    He stuck to locked down, traditional compositions and only went to hand-held during the confrontation scene where the couple got very heated.

    I found it to be very motivated and completely in serving of the subject matter.

    A rarity.

    I noticed a few unnecessary dolly moves and rack focuses. It comes with the territory a bit, especially for those with new equipment. I know I tend to over-use new techniques just so I get it out of my system... but also to really learn the do's and don'ts. Kind of like Photoshop newbies using Lens Flare in every picture (sweeeet).

    Definitely! Some people think every shot must be a rack focus. Or each shot must have very shallow DOF. I also 'like' when I see a completely pointless artistic shot that stands out, as they say, like dogs balls.

    I think that carry-on really shows that Luis is ready for the next level. It's hands down one of the best shorts I've seen in years.

    On the other hand I have noticed that DVXuser look, ie: people are way better on these boards than the majority of the people I went to film school with (that was a bit of time ago now).

    but still, say what you will about the look, but these films have got better in general.

    Lol, not abandoned, just seeing what others say. I don't want to continue lest I be seen as "hashing" on others points. I just made a few points of people dog-piling on a certain look.

    One of my top-three pics was "Remember When". I know some DVXUsers were dinging him for it, but I absolutely loved the simplistic beauty of his shots in the main dialogue scene, it felt very right.

    I will say that locally I know SEVERAL graduates of NYU Film School and they couldn't produce anything even remotely as good as the top 5 of any fest for a while now. I brought my laptop to a pre-pro meeting last week... loaded with the top 8 or so entries... and I presented that as a bundle that I call "the soul crusher".

    Yes there is some "DVXuser look" going on... but overall I'd chalk it up to new toys. I'm not bothered by it for the most part... because for me there aren't many flicks that are helped or hurt by the use of toys. I always said that people will forgive weirdness in the picture before they'll accept problems in the sound... and I still feel that way... but if the writing and acting is really good then I don't even notice a ham-fisted DP exploring a DOF or new crane anyway.

    I'll warn you that I built a little jib recently and I'm going to be Jibby McJibb on my upcoming short for JibFest.
