    You make the GH1 look good. I assume you went through the lengthy pulldown for this piece. What other camera did you record to for audio (no other option than to lug another camera out there)?

    The ONE spot in the trailer where she speaks seems a little out of place. May want to massage the audio a wee more. But i loved it. Kinda long and some shots seemed a little pointless for the trailer, but I still liked it a lot.

      Joshua,

      We tried a Zoom4n digital recorder but it had issues, so I had to use my JVC HD250 camera as a backup.
      Fair criticism of the trailer I suppose. I'm not sure which part you're talking about in regard to the spot where "she speaks". There are 4 different spots of dialog, so I don't know which one you're referring to. It probably could have been shorter, too, you're right.
      All I can say about the audio quality is that I was in a hurry and it was late at night when I edited this. The actual movie will have MUCH more time spent on the mix. Thanks for watching!

          Fair enough, momentary lapse of judgement. The audio was in fact in more than one spot. I guess its just the one that stood out to me. (1.30s) But after watching again, it seems to fit the overall sound quality, maybe it just stuck out because of the background noise and we hadn't heard any dialogue in a while. MAYBE if we had a "establishing" shot of the characters for pacing just before she speaks it might make it nicer. I imagine them both kinda staring at... whatever it is for a second or two, then "Ok... so where do we start". Sortof a break in the pace, maybe even a pause in the music for effect.

          Also, what sort of issues did you have with the Zoom4n?

            Even though I've had to deal with color shifting, artifacts in shadows, rolling shutter, fluorescent flicker...they don't bother me compared to the other aspects of image quality the camera delivers. I couldn't be happier with how this short film has turned out. The GH1 was the best money I ever spent!
            Wow! Top notch work.... Congratulations, you tagged it. It reminds of Showtime's Series "The L Word" in it's own way....

            The GH1 like 35mm film or any quality system; when in the right talented hands, it will deliver what you need....

                Joshua: With the H4n, we just didn't have enough prep time with it. There were issues with fiddling with the menus, so I made an executive decision because we need to roll camera...decided to use my JVC HD250.

                Matty g: Looked at your reel. Very nice stuff. Looks like you've gotten to use anamorphic lenses. I'm jealous. The lighting package was pretty simple. 2 4-bank 4-foot Kino-Flo's. 2 575w HMI fresnels. A basic Arri fresnel kit. And some Chinese lanterns with practical bulbs on dimmers. Most of the daytime stuff was natural light and a Kino for fill.

                  Looks great! I gotta get some faster lenses for mine. Every time I see amazing shots like this everybody is using faster lenses. The stock lens is nice but man... this looks great.

                    Yeah, f4 is a bit hampering. It's OK for wide shots during the day. But for anything else it sure is nice to shoot at f2 or 2.8. Or go nuts on your 50mm and shoot at f1.4!

                      I can say from experience that 2.8/2.0 is great on this camera, and for extreme uses 1.4 is unreal.

                        Well done Todd; it looked and felt very well done.

                          Wow, Todd, very nice! I started to use the Canon FD 50mm 1.4 recently. Especially for low lights amazing, but hard to focus and a bit soft. But opens a new aera of low light sensitivity!

                          best regards, Gunther
