    Our character is a successful businessman who lives in a lavish house, drives an expensive car, watches TV on a huge screen and has everything going for him, yet is depressed and lonely enough to cut himself and read medical journals on depression.

    You can download it here, at 30MB

    Or here on YouTube.

    I did the dolly shot with a basket-trolley, so it's not entirely smooth but seeing as we weren't permitted a genuine dolly and tracks for our first term project, I'm happy with the way it turned out.

    Keep in mind, the original video is SDVCPRO (36gb for three minutes), I burnt it to DVD which was 130MB, then converted the DVD to VCD which is 30MB so the quality is considerably lower than the source material (still excellent, in my opinion though.) The YouTube version goes through even further compression and will look a bit shoddy, so I suggest the 30MB file.

    There is one huge continuity error, can anyone guess what it is?

    you mean that he opens the garage door, then procedes to put on his suit coat, eat breakfast, watch tv, pack his briefcase, and then go out and get his car?

    it was pretty freakin good, althought you could have fit in one more establishing shot and experimented with the aperature settings (gives it a much more dramatic effect, especially when focusing in on someone, for example, the "cutting" scene you could have had a normal aperature, then when he cuts himself, go to a very low ap. setting [gradually] and zoom in on his face slowly, works wonders). But for a first, that was top-notch, keep it up man.

    Thanks a lot guys.

    Tempest, he doesn't open the garage doors...The exterior of the house is just sequential puncuation between the two scenes.
