Share Your Short Films...

So I often browse this board for inspiration so I thought I would create this thread where everyone can post their videos so we can get tips and ideas off each other. If the name is linked it is to their Youtube channel that they have provided later in the thread!

Enjoy!!!

My youtube channel is located in my my signature but I will select some of my better ones.



Since I think we deserve some views I have digged this thread! Do so too!

You may want to integrate some time remapping and motion blur to smoothen the slow motion.

I used Final Cut Pro. One of the first times I used it. So I didn't know everything, and I forgot which filter I used.

I have a lot more videos, but they are currently offline, because or school newspaper is taking a break. I made a video for that too :P.

p.s. it takes a while to load

Hey I really liked the effects in this film this is the sort of thing I want to try and integrate into my films! How did you learn it and I assume that the giant cheesball and explosions were all done in motion?

Thanks

After a long slumber, I've recently got back into the world of film making and here's my first effort in the non-linear editing era!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qEnjHoNyX8

It's technically a bit rough for a number of reasons I won't bore you with, but hopefully you'll enjoy the execution.

BTW it was edited on an old iMac G5 1.8 with iMovie 5HD.

Nice film Norliss! You should think about trying FCE on that machine. It will probably run and you will be able to do a lot more with it!

Hello,
I decided this would be a good place to start, here is my version of Ghostbusters, called Ghostblasters.
Bear with me, the quality sucks, and its, well, cheesy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg-Jt3nwRnE

Watch it in High Quality.

so i wanted to focus on the emotional impact that broken love inflicts on an individual- so for our schools senior project, where we had to make a film adaptation of any book weve read, I created a short film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, set in the modern day, that shines a light on Gatsby's chase for Daisy. Thus the name, Chasing Daisy. (a reference to the romantic movie Chasing Daisies). i wrote the script and my friend filmed and edited the thing. We got an A, obviously, but it didint come out EXACTLY how I wanted it.

this was my first foray into digital filmmaking and my god, no matter how challening it was, I loved every minute of it. Yeah, its amateur, and yeah, its got flaws. But its the birth of my new hobby. Hope you guys enjoy it.

An Afternoon With Roxy

I put together (in about 1 hour) a cute film that people seem to like. I shot it all on my iPhone 3Gs including two still shots.

The film was originally supposed to be titled "...we took the dog". But I changed the title at the last second because I wasn't sure anyone would get the point of the movie. Well, I was wrong because the response so far has shown that the message was clearly received. It's a light hearted movie but with a very emotional meaning to me.

I thought I had posted this here already... but after a quick read through this thread, it looks like I was mistaken...

Up here in northern Michigan, there's a tree filled with shoes -- nobody really knows how it got started, but there are dozens of theories as to the tree's origin. A while back, we put together a short film centered around one of those theories:
