Thanks so much for the feedback guys.
A little more about this one. This is my fourth short, and we had a bunch of complications on set (the usual headaches for those filmmaker types). This was also the first short that I basically did everything on set with minimal help.
The panning shots seemed to be getting the most backlash, and this has been noted for future projects. I'm still getting used to running around using a shoulder harness and follow focus on the gf's cooking shows, so hopefully that will start to pan out in my next few shorts.
@Cornershot, I wish I could've done what you'd recommended, but as it is you hit the nail on the head about acting in low budget films. This was putting together pieces that I could salvage after shooting. I really hate being heavy-handed.
@leGreve, it was actually shot on a T2i, though I'm using both the T2i and 5d for future projects and the two were used on everything else I've done. This was strictly T2i. I used an H4n and a Sennheiser 416 shotgun mic. I also was lucky enough to have a very talented sound designer and composer pull sounds out and really make the piece work, which I couldn't have done myself in post. Actually either my producer held the boom or I did while shooting, so we didn't have an actual sound guy on set.
I'm glad, with flaws and all, most of you guys, at least enjoyed the short. This is what I want to do and it's going to be a steep learning process.
