Shot this yesterday without any real purpose; let's face it, I was very bored...

Need some feedback on quality (color grading, editing, shot setup etc.)

Shot with Canon t2i with ML, Tamron 18-270 PZD
Edited in Premier Pro, AE CS5 using Looks II

Thanks for letting me steal 1 minute of your life that you will never get back :):)

There were a couple scenes that were a little over exposed. OK a lot over exposed. Otherwise pretty good stuff. I was just hoping there would have been some kind of twist right at the end. Maybe not see your whole face until the end and then you have blood spatter all over it. Makes a person think... Huh, huh? ;)

-Lighting varies from shot to shot
-Nat sound (running water) changes from shot to shot. Try recording from an external source or just record a couple minutes of the water running then lay it down as the audio track.
- The mirror shot felt like you were jumping the "action axis". You should have established he was looking into the mirror before moving in for a CU like that. And he was looking off screen.... very misleading.

All in all.... way more productive than I am! If I was bored I would just sit on the internet haha. Good Job!

Was very overexposed. Maybe a grittier, darker grading would add to the scene. Agree with Chas, I REALLY wish their was a payoff at the end. I spent most of the time thinking "stop wasting water" and at the end thought "huh?". Maybe a black eye or something. I just didn't feel like there was a payoff to watching it.
But like stated, if you're bored and put together a 1 min video, you're doing waaaay better than a lot of people. :) thumbs up to you

I agree with the comments above.

I particularly like Chas's thoughts on a bloody face at the end. That would have been extremely cool. Without that you are left with the feeling "Why have you stolen a minute of my life just demonstrate that you wash your face occasionally?" ;-)a (Which is what Brick said but better than me.)

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the feedback bc I am looking to get the right color tone and feel. I am shooting more scenes to actually build a story into this and will post the completed version when done. Thanks again

I feel like your overall technical's were spot-on, but lacking a bit of contrast. You need more dark colors in there. And also, were you using a 25Fps somewhere in your production? I feel like there is a loss somewhere with FPS or aspect ratio. Other than that the exposure is a bit overexposed. Overall you need more contrast. Obviously you have great skin as an actor, but this is too bright. Check your white balance also.

Shot at 24fps, probably in compression it lost some fps integrity...thanks for the comments, agreed that it is to bright and needs more contrast in the composition.
