Ungraded LOG is the new DOF - I see it everywhere now.

I guess people are afraid to color the footage. =P

Looks awesome. I hate all the little gotchas with this camera but damn if the image doesn't make me ok with dealing with them .

Sorry but this doesn't look good to me, but the acting and story is what I dislike the most. Not the image. Sorry if thats a bit harsh but just telling my honest opinion.

As already said the grade needs some contrast at the low end. I think the story has some potential. The shot composition needs a lot of work: Opening on a close up were the actors face was half blocked was weird.
And the vodka (which was obviously water) dripping down his chin was so overplayed it annoyed me.

Yeah this looks a bit odd. I enjoy log looking footage if it's a comparison or a test that I'm watching... but for something a bit more artistic like a short film / trailer, it just feels off somehow. If you want to keep that same ultra low contrast look, fine... but add SOME color to it. BMC footage should be the ultimate treat to grade.. I mean sometimes that's my favorite part, getting all your clips in place / edited and then applying the grade. It's like the icing on the cake.

Yeah, not a fan of pretty much any aspect of this teaser. Glad the guy got his camera though, hope he puts it to better use in the future.

Thought this was a great little short. I also thought his decision to leave the footage as is interesting. Why are there so many faux graders on a camera site? Go post elsewhere.
I'd certainly be interested in seeing more from this guy.

Interesting isn't always good. BTW hand held stuff was shoddy.
