I'd like to hear any thoughts and opinions you guys might have on my new series, Shadazzle.
The series is a bit quirky and hard to describe, so I've invented the genre melodramedy to place it in!
The episodes are embedded below, so let me know what you think :)
Not too shabby. Where's the accent from? When are you launching? I've embedded the Shadazle trailer below.
All castmembers are from the north of England, with northern accents varying from moderate to weak. I wouldn't say anyone has a very strong accent (except one character, intentionally.)
As for launching, all we're officially saying at the minute is January, but it will more than likely be January 25th.
Thanks for the response :)
Pleasure. Keep me posted. :)
Hey, just thought I'd let everyone know, we've just released our first episode! I think the season gets better as it goes along, but I think it's a pretty decent opener.
I'd absolutely love any feedback you guys can give!
You can watch the series at http://www.daffadillies.co.uk/shadazzle, and I've embedded the first episode below:
Very well done and I like the retro color pallet. Don't know if it is the compression or not, but the audio sounds a little hollow in places. Editing is a little rough in places. At 4:50 you have a very noticeable jump cut. Story and characters are good. Normally I would warn against such long pauses in action/dialogue but it really works here. Looking forward to future episodes.
That damn jump cut! I really wanted to do a pickup to fix that, but it just wouldn't work schedule wise, so I had to leave it in.
Glad you enjoyed it, though! I was nervous about the long pauses, so I'm glad they work! Based on this episode, then, would you continue watching?
I'd give it a few more episodes at least.
Our second episode just went online! What do y'all think?
Would be nice if added a "last time" lower third over the previously on video. Its been a bit since watched the first episode and took a moment before I realized it was a previously on segment. Also might want to put on a "next time" lower third over the preview part.
The characters are interesting. Like the color pallet. Camera work seems a little unintentionally shaky at time. Just as I'm getting into a scene it shakes and takes me out.
Episode 2 seemed a bit more somber than the first. I liked the quirkiness and the post it notes were funny.
Thanks! I agree on the camerawork being a bit off in places, we'll work on that.I'm glad you "liked the quirkiness," that's sort of the effect we're hoping for! :)
Hey, if anyone watches any of our episodes, one of the things I'd really like some opinions on is the music, I'd appreciate it a lot. Thanks!
Music is okay. It wasn't distracting, but didn't really stand out.
