    Love the behind the scenes.

    Shawn, is that you? You are so nice and personable I didn't recognize you! ;)

    Looking forward to this one. Especially given the cast, the comedic nature, and the use of 14mm on the whole piece.

    Go Sarah!

    I am learning that long hours and late nights (mornings?) are all part of this crazy fun thing called filmmaking. Thanks to everyone who was involved! This has been an incredible adventure and experience!

    For some reason this reminds me of a Silent Film Festival rather than a DVX FictionFest. Or just call it Oregon Film Festival since almost half of the entires are from your state! What's up with the hairdo, so funny!

    Perfect title. I thought this was a great concept for a short silent film. The waking of a princess is such a classic story and the idea of three nerds trying accomplish it is interesting.

    There were some clever moments here and I'm not surprised none of them got the girl. I think my favorite moment is the ending and that poor girl on the couch doesn't realize that these three are about to descend upon her.

    I love that location you had. I think a more contrasty look though (with deeper blacks and whiter whites) might of been more effective at conveying that old time feel.

    Still, it was really fun to see a silent film entered into the fest. Best of luck with it.

    I think more shorts should go the silent route IMO. Again another great short in the fest.

    Like Chris said, it would have been nice to more fully go for the old school look. That might not be everybody's taste, but to me, doing it half way made it feel more amateur. There's a free filter for Final Cut that works great, does light effet, scratches, hairs, color, everything. From a quick web search, I think this is the one - CGM Aged Film LE filter. I don't want to hijack the thread with a different video, but search youtube for "Eggsistential Issues" to see a film I scored that uses it. We went pretty extreme for an old look, but you can dial it back a bit to clean it up as well.

    But yeah, fun story. Great idea.
