Nice to see the trailer is generating discussion
To respond to some of the comments about the "look" of the footage.
The film was shot in standard definition on mini DV.
As many of you will no doubt know, this is hardly ideal. However, when production began this was all that was available to us.
Then came the almost overnight revolution of DSLR cameras. If we were beginning this now, we would no doubt choose to use something like a Canon7d or similar but it simply wasn't an option back when we started.
As a result we haven't achieved the cinematic look that we'd all like too see since mini DV doesn't lend itself to colour correction particularly well and the camera didn't allow for depth of field which would also have helped achieve a better look.
Money being no object, we would have hired a different camera but unfortunately money is always a definite object lol.
That said, if we were ever to film something else along these lines we would definitely go with a better camera now since you can hire them pretty cheaply or even to buy one now isn't ridiculously expensive. But it wouldn't have made sense to switch to a DSLR part way through production as the footage would have been so different from the early stuff that we'd have had to refilm everything and that simply wasn't an option.
Constructive criticism is welcome and helpful. I'm hopeful that when released people will enjoy it for what it is. Although I realise that you can never please everybody.
All the guys that worked on this have put a lot of time and effort into it and we've all learnt a lot during the process. If we were to refilm everything and start again now, would it be better, certainly. But of course that's not going to happen. They'd all probably kill me if I said I wanted to reshoot the whole thing lol.
I personally have gained a lot of experience from this and will use that to make our next film even better.
