I loved it!! I thought that was so cool! It seems like you had limited resources and used them to their fullest and it created a great charm to the film. If I had to give any sort of constructive criticisms I'd say that giving the audio a little better mixing and overall level adjustments, so that it's more consistent in it's loudness throughout, might help. And the short doc in the middle is amazing and says everything you need it to for the story, but maybe if you condensed it a little more and got back to present time life sooner it would give you more time to wrap up the film. But that's just my shitty suggestions. Honestly I loved it and want to see more :)
Yeah, that's a good point. I absolutely love how they did this, but from a business standpoint would it have been faster/easier/cheaper to do it CG rather than practical? To pay for the crew, equipment, test shoots, prepro, all the days needed to get it right.... would it be more expensive in time and money? If so, what would be the motivation, in a business sense, to push on that way?
Yeah especially for something that doesn't solve the problem. I feel the human guess work that come with calibrating your screen to a reference screen is where the problem is. We need a something that is exact, to do it for us.
The impressive thing here is the balls this guy has to start an editing tutorial with only 17% battery left.
I'm going to make a retractable pole for a camera because everything else is so expensive *charges $550* ....ugh, it's literally a pole.
This is not a video essay. Why do you keep posting these videos saying they're video essays??
