    LEAP OF FAITH


    What would it take to make more of your life? Could you change your future simply by deciding to be someone, or something, different? Mark Twain said, "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society." - is it possible to change who, or what, we are simply by deciding to be different?

    Such a change in oneself requires a tremendous amount of faith in your own abilities or the abilities of those things which you "put on". To step out in such a way requires a Leap of Faith.



    Shot on Panasonic's DVX-100a with the Anamorphic Adapter and edited on Sony Vegas Video 5. The sketches were created from photos in Adobe Photoshop. Vegas was used for cutting, vfx, audio mixing and CC.

    Let me get the "excuses" out of the way This is only the second film I have ever shot in my life, and it was the first time I ever laid my hands on a DVX. That said, I am very proud of the product we turned out and I learned a TON, which is the reason I entered to begin with.

    Larry, enjoyed your film a lot. I thought the underlying message was good, and enjoyed the actors. Some of the CC was inconsistant, but I liked the overall look. The music was amazing, and this film was well written. Overall I give you a thumbs up!

    I pretty much echo what briceman said. I enjoyed watching this film. I felt it had a good structure and was telling a solid story. Thanks for sharing Larry.

    This was a good, simple wholesome story. Execution was good - some more work with the iris would have kept the feeling going.

    Thanks, I'm glad you guys liked it.

    I definitely agree that the CC was not consistent...that was lack of experience, time, and sleep It is a lot better than it was, but I know it needs a lot more work.

    You are dead on with the Iris. As I mentioned in my "excuses" above, I have never used a DVX prior to this shoot. I got the camera on a Friday and we shot on Saturday. By the following week when I shot pickups I was starting to learn more about the iris, and other features, and I think next time I will be that much better. But again, that is why I got involved with this fest...it was a catalyst to get me filming so I could learn.

    Thanks again!!

    Larry, I can't get it to play. I see the first opening credits and then it just keeps jumping back to the start. I have watched the others fine. Is it just me? I want to see it?

    snodart, I'm sorry it's not working...I'm not sure why not. Others are able to watch it ok....do you have the latest quicktime 7 installed? I think the film is h.264 which requires that...as most of them should be.

    yes, QT 7. Maybe I just need to delete my cookies and try again. The bandwidth is maxed out on the site now. I won't miss it

    Yea, I just noticed the bandwidth issue....maybe the full file didn't get downloaded before the bandwidth ran out.

    Hopefully Jarred will be online soon with additional mirrors and the ZIP file.

    Very cinematic. Especially the first 3 minutes! I would try fading him in and out in the bathroom - that seemed abrupt. From the bathroom on - it dragged a bit for me - but liked the ending and theme.

    I liked the pencil sketch - how did you do that?

    Good use of effects! They were a PART of the story and footage and really worked!
