Short Film shot on BMPCC.

Hey I just finished a short film using the BMPCC and a Sigma 12mm lens. Any comments/thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!


You should recut the whole thing and give yourself a lesson on cutting on action. A couple things..we don't need to see the character go back and forth in the hallway like that, only once is fine. Having him run up the hallway, put his shoes on and open the door in one long shot is very boring for the viewer. Find another way to cut into that action. This applies for the whole film, I just highlighted a few instances.

I love the style of this. You've crafted your own world (Napoleon Dynamite, Pulp Fiction, Clerks, etc.) where certain action only make sense in said world (hiding behind a dining room chair during a shootout or stealing snack crackers and tape during a burglary). I'd watch a feature of this world with better actors. But not too much better. The monotone performances work here but should be delivered more deliberately.

Color grading on those cams is not easy, is it?

It is not too hard to put a simple grade on the footage. I am still not the best at colour grading though.
