Final Look Coming Together

Test shot of scene for monster short. Yeah, I just had to go for realism(!?)

That looks like it's going to be a great short, can't wait to see it finished.

I have two MonsterJam related questions which I would be very grateful if you could help with, pretty please.

1. My film is currently 720 x 576. If I change the size in Quicktime will it change the aspect ratio? If it will I'll just have to find a way of batch cropping the images.

2. I have been told my accent makes the line "the teleporter's running slow again" impossible to understand for both Americans and Australians. Do you think the average Canadian will understand it? If not I've already made a subtitled version :)

Sorry for writing an essay!

Please ignore the first question, I've worked it out myself.
I'd forgotten NTSC worked on a different image size as well as a different framerate to PAL! Nothing is ever simple...

Your opinion on whether Canadians will understand my accent would still be much appreciated though!

When I first watched your short I didn't have a problem with your accent. Maybe the audio quality could be improved. It seems to be on the base end. Can't speak for the "average Canadian" because we're so multicultural now. But Wallace and Gromit are very popular here and I never heard complaints about the accent. So I don't think subtitles are necessary.

Thanks Ryan.

Thanks Grant. I'm trying to improve the sound, but I'm not able to get it sounding much better. Sound recording and editing are not my strong points!

I've had to change it to 720x480 using black strips down the side. Not ideal but cropping it wasn't an option.
Thanks again for the advice.
