Nice Zach! naturally funny. The camera was on a string right? -pretty fresh...
the cell phone idea sounds very cool, especially with the direction you were talking about taking it.
Quality of image was really good. I will admit though that w/ shooting from a phone I was expecting a lot more cuts and actually looking forward to it for some reason. Can't normally stand brief clips, but maybe it's the idea of brief clips strung together?
I like the way you're always messing around with the camera--it's a nice visual metaphor for filmmaking. (Even if you didn't mean it that way...) The frustration and the spur of the moment nature also seems to fit with your overall concerns. The fact that you never clarify why you're stringing up the JVC is also nice.PS: hooray for the east side guys.
I was interested at the beginning in what looked like you throwing a rope over something - I wanted to know what that was, and I liked the disconnect between the video and the sound at times. I think I would have made it a bit less shaky overall, but I like that you took up the whole post to get your general message across.
I agree with the above posts. Your idea of stringing up a camera and letting it swing around is interesting. Normally excessively wobbly camera work makes me nauseous, but not in this case; it felt more like I was floating. And I like that you don't clarify why you're rigging up the camera like that. Very cool.
