Excellent, very well done. The hairs in the gate got a bit tedious would be my only complaint. For some reason I wanted the lead singer to have a microphone.
Bondage mistress, duct tape, cable ties and riding crop. What more can a man ask for?
We're All Different:
Not a fan of rap but that got to me.
Did you design the set or was it something found?
Hi Bob, thanks for the feedback, I originally had a lighter damaged grade on this which I did prefer but the band pushed for the heavily damaged look. I can post a less damaged processed version of this if anyone's interesting in seeing?
I suggested to all the band about using some mic stands, but they weren't up for it.
The second video is of 17 year old Ryan a rapper that has autism, this was shot in an empty disco club, I had set up my own lighting using a few reds softboxes and a dedo
I'm probably a bit sensitive to how old film looks have spent a lot of time transferring 8mm. Of all the things that had gone wrong with it either when shot or because the years not being kind to it, hairs in the middle of the frame was no amongst them. Edge damage, loss of dye layers, scratches, jumping up and down, just no hairs in the middle of the frame.
Apart from it not being authentic, which most likely few of your audience will notice anyway, they got to be just annoying. Problem I saw was quite pleasant but soft images which is great but then those sharp hairs and of course my eyes are being drawn to the hairs and I'm not looking at what I should be looking at. They just took me out of the shot if you know what I mean.
Still a great effort though.

Good choice on your part then and used very effectively. The juxtaposition of Ryan's affliction and the set just worked. Maybe just providance but that plays very strongly into this game.
There's a difference in the levels between the video on YT and Vimeo.
The "crushed blacks" look on Vimeo kind of dominates everything else so it's hard to judge any differences from less "hairs".
Film never has really solid black, not that it mattered as it was watched in a dark room but for sure having such hard blacks took it right away from anything "film" for me on Vimeo.
