Comedy Short - My Apartment
Just releasing a new short this week. Shot with a stock HF100. Pulldown removed with Cineform Neo Scene. Edited in Vegas 8.
Appreciate any feedback you care to offer with respect to technical or creative aspects.
As always, thanks to the members of this forum for your ongoing support and advice.
Who knew apartment living could be this much fun?

That was funny, really funny. Trust me, I know places are small. Some places in NYC don't even have kitchens, you know?
Feedback? the lighting seems a little too bright and too even in many places, a little too basic. A better lighting ratio would help. And some of the green screen parts have too much green reflected in the flesh. The masking looks good, though, it's just the reflections in the flesh.
For effects, was that oatmeal (at the 2:30 mark)? I heard that New England Clam Chowder with applesauce, I think, works well too. A little too well, at times, as it conjures up the real thing...

Thanks Scott. Great observations.
I'm new to lighting and currently spend more time creating "adequate" light than on the nuances. One of the (many?) curses of crew-of-one syndrome. I definitely have room for improvement.
I agree... there's too much green in some of the green-screen shots. I have plenty of lighting hardware but not enough space. Yet another downside to living in a small apartment.
The vomit was instant oatmeal. Apple & cinnamon flavored. Quite tasty. I kept wanting to swallow. Clam chowder and applesauce sounds hard-core (and chunky).
I appreciate the feedback.
