1. This was shot a couple of nights ago - near one of my favorite local Indian restaurants.

    There are at least seven curry joints within 5 minutes walk of this place, so their predicament is understandable.

    The treatment in this video is kind of lighthearted, but nonetheless, something about a struggling restaurant really bums me out. Especially an Indian one!

    Anyway, this is the third installment in the Daily Film Project. 85 and 50m lenses used throughout, with a slight emphasis on the former.

    No grading whatsoever, which is due to my need for sleep. It's a bit of a shame because I shot in a very neutral picture profile to allow latitude for grading later on.

    Rendered in native 30p (unless Vimeo conversion changes frame rate).

    The Daily Film Project is proving to be a very demanding ride. But based on the footage in the can right now, the next couple of days should yield some pretty interesting pieces.

    New film up, of course, this time tomorrow.

  2. The second outing in the Daily Film Project. Two days in and the pressure is ON!

    This is a little piece about Shibuya on Xmas eve. Just using a 50mm lens, about 50 percent handheld, without any viewfinder loupe.

    Thanks due to the Siggraph Santas in particular for letting me vicariously be a part of the action. And, of course, for the lovely red hat to help me fit in.

  3. This is the first of a series of short films in a personal series: the Daily Film Project.

    This film is made from test footage shot around the little supermarket just down the road from my home, on the first day after scoring the lenses. They are the Canon f/1.4 50, f/1.8 85 and the f/2.8 16-35.

    It's converted down to/ interpreted as 24p in Premiere CS3, in Windows. It's not 'true' conversion as the footage is slowed down 20 percent or so. It's an effect that I like here, but I'd be really keen to hear if anyone has a better workaround in order to maintain sync sound and natural speed.

    Tokyo has a reputation as being a 21st century hi-technopolis. It can be. But at the same time, it's pretty folksy. This film aims to reflect a little of that local color.

    New film up tomorrow.

This project has entered a new phase: the films will henceforth come in their own good time. This move comes in the interests of quality control and personal health!

The films are still essentially to be shot and cut in a total of 24 hours, and they will take as much as possible the same approach, i.e.: that of an 'instant-documentary', made with as little planning as possible.

There will be more vignettes, and contemplations on life in -but not limited to- Tokyo, though the eyes of one who knows the culture pretty well but remains unambiguously foreign.

Thanks for subscribing. More films will follow - both on this channel and beyond it.
