Christmas Crap

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello guys. I wouldn't mind some feedback on a short film that I recently shot. It's a short that we were going for a "Hallmark" movie look and feel.

 

I asked about shooting Hallmark/Lifetime movies in this post: http://www.cinematography.com/index.php?showtopic=78303&view=&hl=&fromsearch=1 I definitely appreciated the feedback and used the info that was provided while I was on set.

 

We started preproduction in Oct and I shot through Nov and Dec. I was pretty much a one man band; shooting (except for drone shots), lighting, sound, editing, and color. My current goal is to shoot a Lifetime Movie Network movie. So during this shoot I was trying to give a feel of both Hallmark mixed with a Lifetime movie type of look and feel. Feedback is wanted and appreciated. Thanks. (Link below)

FYI: I'm not a director! I'm a DP & camera operator (job dependant) that's looking to work with directors.

The link doesn't seem to work on the other thread.

 

My only technical comment would be that the shot of the two subjects both facing camera at around 4.15 was jarring because the girl was out of focus - stopping down to get enough depth of field to have both subjects in focus would have been better I think.

Dom Jaeger thanks for the feedback! And I added the link to the other thread. I intentionally had her out of focus to take the attention off her, but I'll be sure look for the jarring effect in shots like this in the future.
