Topic: (WIP) "Pig Sty"

Hey there, people.

I spent this weekend doing most of a shoot of my second horror short (and second short in general) titled "Pig Sty", and though we didn't finish this weekend like I'd hoped (and didn't get to filming the most exciting middle part), we did get what I like to think are some good shots. I plant to experiment with some color correction later, as we were using only one huge spotlight inside a mostly dark, abandoned slaughterhouse which results in the light differing a bit here and there, but I figured I could still show those who care to see a screenshot or two.

Unfortunately, it might take a while before we get to record the rest - BUT I am actually getting around to filming an entry for "Possession" fairly soon instead, so at least I can keep working on SOMETHING

Teaser looks pretty good. I liked it on YouTube and on Facebook. Mind if I ask what gear you're using for the film? There seems to be a bit of a flicker effect in the lower light scenes.

Glad you like it.

I have pretty much NOTHING to work with, as I have no money. I am using a Kodak Playtouch for a camera, a simple little microphone and two spotlights borrowed from my dad, who is a carpenter.

You have to keep in mind this place is a real abandoned slaughterhouse, and what power we can find tends to be a little unstable, which I think may have an effect on the lighting. I just have to make do with what I've got.

Vuuuryy scuuurry!

Edit: I'd suggest diffusing those spotlights somehow, the lighting looks pretty harsh - you could even cut up some milk jugs and put 'em over the lights to soften a lot

I'll keep that in mind - but suddenly having a softer light when we go back to filming - I can't help but feel like that'll break things up a little and be far too noticable - but again, I am a novice at all of this. Is there some way in, say, Premiere or After Effects, to manage to possibly make the light less sharp? I do see what you mean in some of these shots.

Re: (WIP) "Pig Sty"

FINALLY managed to gather people to shoot the rest of this thing! Took far longer than it should have, but now I am just waiting to get the footage so I can start editing.
