The General Lobsterdance Productions Film Thread!

Postby kiryugoji04 » Thu Sep 20, 2012 9:38 am

I've needed a non-kaiju/tokusatsu film thread on this forum for awhile. NOT THAT ANY OF YOU PEOPLE WILL CARE OR WATCH THEM but I'm going to force them on you anyway!

I love all of you, you know that, right? <3 :D

Anyway, here is a thing I finished last night: https://vimeo.com/49809746

In this, the talented and lovely Christine patiently tolerates me as I film her painting process for an hour and twenty minutes. I've been struggling with editing an art film, which this footage was originally shot for, so I decided to take a break and edit this together as general montage practice. I think it turned out pretty nicely. Hope everyone likes it!

Will post more later.

EDIT: HERE ARE EMBEDDED VIDEOS, WOO.

Rather than ending each video with the LobsterDance logo you should have a 5 second clip of giant monster stomping a building...that could get me to watch a video on typography

But I want people to watch my things because they are good, not trick them into watching them by promising giant monsters ALL THE TIME, EVERY TIME. :(

Well instead of giant monsters, what if you came up with some sort of gimmick

Well-done giant monsters and miniatures for an American, indie, no-budget production company kind of IS our gimmick but that won't stop me from branching out and doing stuff like this. What did YOU have in mind?

me? come up with a constructive idea? i think you are forgetting which one of us is the artist, and which one of us just blindly clicks on the links he finds on the internet.

I feel like this is nothing but good ideas. You should do this Jared.

So this weekend we completed principle photography on our single biggest production to date: NIVIS EX MACHINA. We actually had a full cast and crew this time out, with lots of fancy equipment everywhere. It was gorrammed crazy! With production values this high, it's very probable that this will be destined for the festival circuit! :D

Here, have some behind-the-scenes stills!

Our main set:

Our exterior setup:

Our miniature division, hard at work:

And here's the majority of our cast and crew gathered for a group shot:

And you should totally like our Facebook page because we need all the attention we can get! Thanks! :D

Liked the process video. You got some nice shots (I always love close-ups of brush strokes, for somer eason), it was well cut together, and the finished painting was pretty cool.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

Thanks a ton! It was a lot of fun to film Christine at work. :D

Sorry I missed this comment before. :lol:

This is a weird little film that was conceived of as an excuse to shoot something - anything - at a pool because I'd really wanted to do that at the time. Actually, I still do, because pretty much anything near water tends to be a cool location. We thought it'd be fun to do another thing with the argumentative characters from Luxembourg, albeit sans accents. So, for better or for worse, here it is. Hopefully you find some amusement in it.

Whine marks a sort of end of an era for Lobsterdance, as its release sees us leaving the stage of "a couple of nerds with a camera trying to make films," and our upcoming NIVIS EX MACHINA marks a paradigm shift towards considerably more professional productions. Please look forward to it!

^Nice! Simple, funny, and to the point.

So we've just completed a new mini-doc covering a local Atlanta Art student's performance art installation: GLITZKRIEG! Essentially, I was sealed up in a room with two ladies, a pair of leaf blowers, eleven pounds of glitter, and a brand new DSLR (probably not the most advisable test run of the camera BUT WHATEVER). This is the resulting film:

Here is a music video that we produced for Moby's "Almost Home" contest on Genero.tv. We didn't win anything, unfortunately, but we're still super-proud of our final product. This is actually the first Lobsterdance Production directed by Elliot Long and the first to NOT be directed by myself, which is a crazy-huge step for us. We're growing! Exciting!

Anyway, we hope you enjoy it!

The first two days of principle photography for Lobsterdance's newest short film, ALIZARIN, have been soundly vanquished! Feeling pretty good right now, given that the script has made me a nervous wreck off and on throughout the past three months. It's the first straight-up drama I've ever directed, guys! No miniature effects, giant monsters (so I know you guys won't care XD), or absurdist comedy! BUT DEM STILLS THO.
