Wow! Kept me watching until the end! Great ending, great edit/grading and vfx!

The only thing I reacted on was that it was obvious that the pics were faked. The fact made me wonder if it was intentional or just poor PS skills of the protagonist (but then why so many likes? Wouldn't the online community also see this? :). Anyway thats feedback.

Inspiring and impressive

Thanks! I originally had a commenter in the video say "I cant believe you guys didn't know these were fake" but I thought it would be too long for anyone to read so I cut it out. Glad you were still able to enjoy it.

Really nice!
Great style and the tempo. Amazing audio work. Love the look.

The beginning is just perfect, that's the way to do it. Clever, it sets the rhythm.

One big thing here is, that you have a very difficult idea: guy sits on the computer, stuff happens there...This must be one of the best ways I've seen it done. Nice graphics. Liked the way the older text lines were left blurred. Your editing is really spot on all the way.

Cinematography really really good, cool skin colors, that empty room curtains shot and the next gas station slider shot, just great.
You mentioned that you did all your audio in post, well done! Kitchen scene, keyboard, anger rising, likes counter, gas station background, everything very much in line for the mood. Setting an example.

Would have lot of questions :) but here's some that I've been asking lately from other great 5D3 Raw filmmakers:

1) Did you use External monitor, or EVF?
2) Do you use waveform? If so, camera, EVF, external monitor?
3) Did you have monitor with playback or did you transfer and check your material some other way right after shooting?

4) What CF cards and transfer devices did you use?

Thanks!
S

First of all thank you for the compliments. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Now to answer your questions.
1) The external monitor I used for most of the shots is the Aputure VS-1  7".
2) Did not use waveform.
3) No playback.
4) I have one lexar 32 gb 1000x

I'm scared to say anything bad about it because you might come shoot me.

Pretty cool stuff, man. Each shot was super clean and artistic.

Hey - about your workflow - could you give a little more detail? What did you use to convert the files? Did you shoot in MLV or RAW? I'm still trying to figure out how to roundtrip from grading in AE to editing in Premiere then back to AE for secondary grades on the DNG files so that I don't lose any quality... any tips?

I just updated the description of the movie on Vimeo to include my raw workflow. A few people have asked me about it from different forums so I posted it in one spot for anyone who wants to see it. Thanks for watching!

Thank you! I thought the audio turned out pretty good but I like "top notch" better. Glad you enjoyed it!
