Great articles and incredibly well made film by these young filmmakers.
Nice to see they are humble and will to share their journey and insights.
I sense they could be the next Nolan Brothers and look forward to seeing more films from them.
I'd say the world is their oyster, but I hope to be proven wrong and find it is actually the universe.
I always found this a strange article for NFS to publish, but free speech. Fine, Mr. Sacks disliked the rat, and is entitled to his opinion (shared by whomever else), but his God-like position to deem it destroyed the movie, when apparently it didn't bother millions of others was a bit arrogant.
And to think the family well publicized stunt to raise money was going to go unnoticed when it was a clear copyright infringement?
I wonder how Mr. Sacks would respond if he made a movie and someone publicly announced they were going to fix an element in that movie that they felt destroyed the perfection of it. Perhaps he would fully fund any hypothetical KickStarter to assist...but unlikely. He would probably be enraged.
I can only see his act of divulging where to find the free rat removed video as sour grapes, and he probably wants the other person to suffer the same wrath he received.
Wow! This does look amazing and it really looks like you've elevated the genre with some deep characterizations and intriguing storyline. I truly think you'll do well with this project.
Such a common question, but what did you shoot on? I know you mention having used a hacked GH2 years ago, but wondering what the current camera is. I fully realize that the manipulation of light and understanding of good cinematography is paramount no matter what camera, but I am plugging away with some scenes for my own feature using a GH4 with V-log, and hope it can create a professional look.
A brief discussion of the technical side of your production, from camera choice, lighting practices and post-production procedure (grading, conforming, etc.) would be greatly appreciated, if not asking too much. I just find that you have created a wonderfully cinematic looking film and am always hoping to learn from those that can do so on a minimal budget. Thank you, and continued success!
