    BTS Explanation of Some shots and more about the film
    http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showpost.p...4&postcount=82



    About the FILM:


    The shoot was just me and Mat Raney and my 5 year old nephew, and my 11 month old son.

    Tristin (the 5 year old boy) was the set photographer. I gave him my camera to go shoot pictures. Half the shots were pictures of the carpet and his toy cars. I took a few myself, but the rest was him.

    The biggest lesson i learned was Audio, audio, audio. For now on out, I'm not doing a shoot without a proper mic, and someone to sit there and make sure all audio levels are good to go. what a nightmare that was on the editing room. I did the best I could. Oh well. live and learn.

    ********


    Mat Raney doubling the role of baby sitting while shooting his scene. You'll notice his tone is: "shhhh quiet...." in the film. That's because he's got my son, Myndin in his lap. Notice the milk bottle on the little lamp table?


    This was another shot of just china balls and a household outdoor flood light. Myndin is in his playpin and babbled the entire time.


    "The BOX" was shot with the canon HV20 with Twoneil's Deluxe 35 mm adapter.


    Since the adpater inverts the image, this was my stance throughout the film. Looking at a tv monitor upside down. And... sometimes holding the baby during mat's lines to keep him quiet and content...


    This was the TV monitor on the ground with the inverted image from the camera...


    Mat Raney (aka the Writer) poses. HV20 OTS


    Ha!! Yes.. this was our "Green and Purple" screen. The green was a dragon blanket of Myndin's hung over our outside fence. Word of advice.. don't try and key out purple... Specially when the purple doesn't extend all the way to the ground.


    The "Ant" shot.


    Tristin was being a punk here. He kept walking in front of the camera and was snapping pictures while filming with the flash. So, I had to take the camera away from him. this was his, "I Don't like you anymore" pose. Canon HV20 with the Twoneil Deluxe 35 mm adapter in the foreground.



    All in all, i hope you like our little film. It was definitely a last minute idea after my first script fell through due to locations and time constraints with all the 3d effects and green screen work. So, this was a product of what happens when you have the itch to make a movie.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks guys!! I just added some BTS stuff.

    Last minute entries are tough. Specially with a 11 month old and 5 year old constantly saying hello in my office/studio.

    How in the world did you find time to get this done? You've scored, what, half* of the entries in this fest? I'm glad to see you managed to get behind the camera again. Can't wait.

    ha! thanks Amy... Ya, i think my final tally 5 films, plus my own. I think a few others are using my music too. I lost count

    I wonder if there are other entries with children besides ours?

    hope you like it!
