Thanks for the comments. My biggest problem is compression right now, and I cant afford the really good programs that compress well so right now I use windows Moviemaker and make do. =/

I'm going to have to agree with djr33 here....what was up with the negative image thing.  I thought was great until that.  I liked the seven seconds instead of seven days thing.  The ending action was a bit unclear.  I could hear the end lines from the characters....I'll watch it again.  Great though besides that.

The negative image was a substitute for the crazy zoom in/flashy thing that happens to victims in "The Ring"

Ok that's cool.  ...So you couldn't figure out how to duplicate the zoom in flashy thing...that would have made the movie even more awesome.

Basically everything I know about making films I've learned from experimenting, and figuring things out for myself.

So there is a lot of stuff I still am unfamiliar with. Thanks for the tip man.

Yeah. No problem. Awesome first try though.

One more question:
How'd you do the night shots. I can't believe even an XL2 would do that well in such low-light. My cam would be just pure noise. And yet... its perfectly clear. Can't be any Day For Night tricks as the porch light is right.

Just a sony handycam. It's a DCR TRV11.

As for the night shots I think I have to credit the quality to the camera itself. I didn't need to use any tricks because I got just the right ammount of light I wanted.

Actually DJ, my VX2000 kicks arse in low light.  The XL2 looks even better than my cam.

It's all about knowing your cam and using it right.

Film cameras would be pure noise too in the wrong lighting.

It's all about how you set up.  Whether it be a lucky guess, or a planned decision, the proper light is what makes the whole thing work.

Have fun!
