Complaining that the 6D doesn't shoot 4k is like complaining that the C200 doesn't shoot stills.
That red racing stripe screams 1998 design aesthetic. What were they thinking!?
Cool to see he's shooting handheld with a seemingly stripped down camera package.
So was it Toronto or Telluride? Don't let the rest of us waste our money on bogus festivals...
Very cool story but it's missing an important part: how did a high schooler manage to pay for a DP with an Alexa, Panavision lenses, and a Fisher dolly? Thats a multi thousand/day camera package, never mind the rate of the crew.
If the DP donated his gear and time, that would be really interesting to know. If her family is wealthy, that's cool too, no judgement. But leaving this part out while touting the "benefits" of skipping college comes off as disingenuous, and isn't really good advice for young people.
I actually thought this was pretty cool. The political messaging aside, I thought the video was creative, had an effective storyline, and was nicely edited together. I personally enjoy these types of creative expressions, where the viewer is transported to the future to "look back" at their present day circumstances for a different perspective.
Using your own b-roll was a nice touch as it kept it cohesive.
The only thing I didn't like was the music. It felt too upbeat for some of the scenes in the beginning and middle, so perhaps that could be something to work on in future projects.
Thanks for sharing.
