dude this footage is really sucky... I mean if you take a look at shot one the green card would have been useful if you positioned it and even the stand correctly. I mean now if i wanted to line up these shots properly i would need to undistort your lens model and then rotoscope your hair back in which is a huge pain. I would have rathered missing the back of your head at least thats an easier dhape to rotoscope.
In the second shot you have the green card again... why? what am i supposed to composite behind him? The only thing i can imagine is the shot in the chair however it doesnt cover the chair much at all AND the only thing that goes that far is the back of the chair which i would have rotoed anyway. So now that you have used card where it wasnt needed i miss out on the background information behind you which will make the stitching scenes a pain in the ass. What also makes it a huge pain to stitch is your way left of frame when you dont even move halfway through it. WHY? how am i supposed to stitch the TV when i have a distorted half and the other half is covered by your hair in shot one.
In the third shot you left the chair in it without just pushing it to the side... this makes stitching even harder... do you even think before shooting your plates?
Shot 4 is fine... its how you should have shot them all... except now i have to time the camera pan to your movment out of shot to match the in shot of you sitting on the couch which is a huge pain too I may even have to reverse the pan.
Its just so annoying that we get to use this footage instead of using someone who actually knows how to shoot for an effect like this.
Ive worked out how to combat all these things but its just such an annoyance to have an indie film this.
