    Hey guys, I just made a new movie entitled "the littlest zombie" Can you guys give me some feedback on it? Its not your conventional zombie movie.
    You do have to scroll down a little bit to find it.

    None of your videos seem to work, the address comes up in the address bar but nothing happens.

    I can't seem to download it either. Is this a serious film or some sort of mockery or spoof of the genre?

    I'm a big survival-horror fan.

    P.S., I like it a lot. It'd make a great music video to that song. :D *loves the Stripes* I think it's really cute, and it matches mood with the song in a very nice way. :) Thank you for sharing!

    Very cute. :)

    I'm not sure what kind of feedback you're looking for but here's what I can give you. You cross the axis two or three times. I'm not sure if you know anything about the line of interest, but when you have two subjects, namely the group of kids and the zombie, you can't cross sides. It confuses the viewer. The auto iris was also on, a common occurance on handheld DV cameras. Never use auto iris unless you want your movie to have "ameteur" written all over it. Also, making the shots a bit more dynamic, ie. long, medium, and close up shots, would help hold on to the viewer and make the piece more interesing.

    I'm a communication's student, so this is the kind of stuff I see. Good luck to ya ;)

    You sound just like my video teacher.
    :). Thanks for the feedback, I'm in video class right now and we are learning about that stuff. Unfortunatly I was not in that class before making this, so please excuse my mistakes.

    Sorry to go OT, but how hard is this to set up? I don't have movies to share per se... but I'm thinking of starting vlogging....and I know how to create the content, but I don't exactly know what I'm doing after that. :eek:

    Great little video, will.

    I think the effect of that giant head sitting akwardly on the little girl's body was a great one. All of her movements were very comical. Overall, it was pretty well done. If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?

    Good Stuff

    Hey. Your films look great. Out of curiousity, I am wondering what camera you use for filming your stuff? I currently do most of my filming on a Sony Handycam, and am looking to upgrade. Thanks, and good luck with any future productions.

    I think I might be using the same model as you. Mine is a Sony Digital Handycam, its about 6 years old though, but it works great.

    I have to say... I got sidetracked looking at all of your other videos first. They are all very well done.

    Post more, post more! We love your videos. I want to see more of the Littlest Zombie most of all. What ever happened to Private Luke? Seems to be missing from the end of the short....

    I enjoyed that. Nice and light hearted.

    Only one criticism, it seemed the auto exposure spoiled one or two shots. Just because the light changed mid shot.

    Thanks for posting.

    Rich.

    Well we ran out of time and light. It was our last day at the beach so I just stuck that little 2 second clip of him in at the end. He is being help right in front of the door.

    No they did not bring back Bruce. The deal was, he was a janitor and also drove the buses for all the school activities. He was getting two paychecks for his two separate jobs. You arn't allowed to get two separate paychecks in the school system so they fired him. He didn't know that rule, and some say the principle asked him to drive, so he assumed it was legit. Others say that a person with a grudge against him ratted him out. But the main point is that he was one of the nicest, hardest working people at our school, and we really didn't want him to lose his job.
