@02:31Juste FYI, ce que j'essayais de te dire à travers la porte du métro, c'est que je ne ré-emménage pas à Paris, mais je dois déménager tous mes trucs de Paris dans le nouvel appart de mes parents, qui eux déménage dans le 14e.
Bref, je reviens en janvier normalement -w-

I really liked this. If you want some critique from someone who has no authority in filmmaking whatsoever, here it comes. :)

Visually, I like the look of the movie. The exposure seems slightly below "average", which I personally prefer (low-key over hi-key any day). Black levels are excellent, I'm assuming you shot this digitally, and if you did any artistic dropping of the shadows to more closely approximate film, then great job. If the picture style in the camera was the source of the deep blacks, then it works great. Overall contrast is also very striking, which is also owed by the deep blacks.

Moving to sound, it's generally the first thing that suffers in filmmaking, but here it is very good. Seems like someone took the time to record alot of ambient noise, and the mixing and EQing is also great. It works very well.

Camera movement is also good. Personally I generally prefer slightly more mass to the camera, and less subtle movements, but that is 100% subjective. If the camera is supposed to be POV then small movements are almost required to get that across to the audience. Too steady and it seems artificial and not connected to a person moving. If you did any slight anti-shake in post, also great job.

As for lighting, not sure if any lights were used, but the look of the lighting is superb. It is natural, which is a very nice advantage to shooting digital, since film tends to need alot of light, which sometimes really gives it a lit look. This looks very natural, no big rimlights or such. My favourite shot is of him as the train goes by, the subtle lighting moving across his face, and the overall look is wonderful.

As for lenses, the shallow depth of field look is so wonderful for video. I like that it starts wider and then narrows as we intensify the situation. Also the insert shots are great, her eye in particular.

Overall, really nice, thanks alot for uploading and sharing your work!

Shoot! I wrote you a long answer a few days ago but I guess it didn't send :(

Thank you very much for all the compliments. This has been shot with a canon 5DmkII, and while I didn't go for a specific "film" look, I just color corrected the picture so it would just look good. I added some grain, not to replicate film, but to have smoother gradients.

I'm a musician, so sound is actually very important to me. I did the recording (it's actually my voice you hear) and the mixing/mastering.

As for the camera movements, it was supposed to be a subjective view, so there had to be some movements, it would have been too "ghostly" otherwise.

We didn't use any lights, since it's pretty much illegal to shoot in the subway station in the first place, but we did use a reflector, which was very useful for the faces.

The shallow depth of field comes from several factors: the 5DmkII has a big sensor, so the DOF is thin, and I used lens that were open pretty wide: a 50mm that opens at 1.4, probably opened around 2 or 2.8, and a 100MM macro that opens at 2.8. Both amazing lenses, I was very pleased with them.

Thanks again for this nice comment, I wish every people who have "no authority in filmmaking whatsoever" would give us feedback as detailed as yours :D

J'aime presque mieux la parodie. Dommage que les autres filles soient pas aussi expressives que toi.
