Thread: Lots of Guns, a girl, and even more guns - An Independent Action Movie (In Singapore)

  1. #1

    Default Lots of Guns, a girl, and even more guns - An Independent Action Movie (In Singapore)

    Motivation:
    To spread awareness - we don't really have that many media outlets from which to spread awareness for this project. At least none that are too kindly to people our age.










    Hey all, noticed the video showcase thread doesn't get half as much traffic as the Kopitiam one, so I just wanted to publicise a short that my friends and I made. We're all between 16 to 17 years old, but i assure you it's got the production values of something far higher than anything that's been done at this level before.

    We spent quite a bomb (you'll get the pun if you watch it too) making it, and its 30 minutes long, but we're offering it up online for free just to create awareness for it So check it out, tell your friends, and most importantly, enjoy it!

    Synopsis:
    A cop desperately trying to hide a dark secret, an opportunistic mob boss, and a seemingly innocent office worker victimized by circumstance: Each of them driven by their own selfish motivations. Little do they know that when their paths collide in a complex chain of unprecedented events, their actions would ultimately lead to their inevitable demise ten minutes later.

    In one of the largest and most epic films ever attempted by the finalists of Project Pilot and the Canon Film Festival with a cast and crew of over seventy people, Countdown is a fast-paced, intricately-spun and twisted action-thriller about the trappings of wanton greed, unavoidable causality, and most of all, ironic twists of fate.

    10 Minutes. 3 People. 1 Destiny.


    Techie Specs
    We shot it on 3 cameras - the XL2, the DVX102b and the PD170. For those interested, the XL2 and the DVX generally produced the best footage, while the PD170 was consistently bogged down.

    I appreciate the kind words. A little publicity isn't going to harm anyone. Furthermore this isn't commercial at all - we are in no way able to profit from this. We just wanna get the film seen! Do remember that this is our first major production of this scale, and that we're just a bunch of 16-17 year olds with no military training...

    MalcolmOng... hav you tried youtube? put your trailers there. Also edit it so that you have some references/credits right at the front few seconds before jumping into the trailer proper...also remember ending credits and stopping at some sort of reference back to your production team.

    We've got it on all major video sharing sites...it just looks the best on blip.tv. We're considering doing another cut of the trailer too, and we're probably gonna hire...'THE VOICE'. The Movie voice guy. I found a guy on the internet who's got a pretty good at the Don La Fontaine voice....cheaper too

    Hmm, they work for me, but its all a bit slow. I'm guessing as a result of a certai earthquake. If you would like, PM either me or hobbes00 with your address and we'll send you a dual layer dvd with the production and all the extras as soon as we can!

    Hi there Malcolm. Great effort you guys. Just an opinion here. If you guys really wanna improve, try to take comments positively as best as you could. Although non of you guys have been through military training, I believe the millions of actors who acted in war films throughout the history of film-making have never either. It's up to the crew to research on the field they are duplicating, and make it as 'real' as it needs to be.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah we should have researched. I'm hoping the next film would be better though

    Your thread said that this film is to spread awareness. But what kind of awareness?
