Web series - "Mind less chitchat" ("Papos de mentes")


Active member
Hi guys,

I´ve spent many years away from video after falling in love with photography but I´ve decided to have some fun with video again with this project. The project is a 10 episode dark comedy series about 2 childhood friends who join forces to pass their midterms but always end up engaging in moronic conversations instead.

Objective: having fun and spreading the word (I´ve created accounts on twitter, tumblr, youtube, blogger and so on do divulge the series)

- Finding time to work on this project, considering I work from 9h to 18h and that I´m married
- Finding committed actors at a very specific age range who were whiling to work weekends (these 2 are actually still studying acting...which can be a challenge)
- Finding my pace around video again :)
- Having to do EVERYTHING...yes, you may start throwing stones, but again, bare in mind that I´m not in this line of work and this is just something a have a lot of fun with
- Having to learn about was a challenge but also very good to learn and I´m sure that you will notice the difference from episode to episode (on the first episode the audio is really not up to the standards I´d like to keep, on the second things get better and on the third even better)

Cast: Jean Osti (Paulo) and Fábio Cardoso (Chê)
Crew: me (directed, written, shot, lit, edited, subtitled, etc)
Equipment: Sony NEX7, Metabones speedbooster, Canon 28mm 1,8, 50mm 1.4, 85m 1.8, Zoom h4N, 2 lavalier mics.

Anyway, guys, be gentle. I´m not a "pro video fella".
Be warned, there is cursing.

P.S - is there a code for me to embed the youtube window directly on the post?
