This is a teaser for my short movie project SONNENBLUMEN (Sunflowers), that will be finished in early 2008.

The camera in use was the HV20, 25P and Cinemode. Cut and color-correction in After Effects. The final movie will be about 30 minutes long. We only had a two days of shooting so far, but I thought itīs enough for a teaser. ;)

Interesting. I like the sound effects...the whole thing gives me that 28 days later type of feel. Kind of spooky. :hv20-smilie15:Can't wait to see more.

Are you using AE CS3?
What color tools did you use?

Itīs AFX 6.5 - Iīm not sure why I should spent money for upgrading, yet. I did not work in HDV-resolution, I converted everything to 540p Lagarith with DGDecode and AVISynth beforehand.
I did not need much "corrective" color correction. To create the look I downloaded the trial of Magic Bullet Suite and tried to recreate the look with built-in tools to avoid the trial watermark. Curves and layer effects can do much.
Iīm really thinking about investing in the Magic Bullet Suite - too bad the cheaper Magic Bullet Editors are not available for AFX.

I like it, but (and this is completely subjective, simply how i feel) i think it would be better if you slowed it a bit. Don't know what the look and feel of the movie will be, but from what i get from this clip, slowing it down a bit would create much more of an effect. So, slow down the first scene and make all the scenes as long as the second scene, the one with empty road.
Just my two cents.

Donīt panic, it will be much slower. No flash-flash-cut-cut-distort. My big role model is the pace of the video game Silent Hill 2. Iīm still thinking of ways to add fog to the scenes later, but maybe Iīll skip the fog to make it less Silent-Hill-y. ^^

I definitely think you should go for a more nightmarish/dreamy/foggy look.
