Canon Camera approached us about making a film to promote their new camera the EOS C100 Mark II. We’ve been using the C100’s in our arsenal for quite some time and love it, so we were excited to work with them to come up with a really cool idea.
For the perfectionists/control-freaks out there, you’re going to have to make a decision at some point during your creation process and acknowledge something just as I did. I’m too close to the material. Too close to edit this thing myself.
In case you missed it in Part 1, Day 3 is a character driven piece that happens to be set months after the zombie apocalypse. The majority of the film takes place in one interrogation room. There are five actors present, which means we have to light for all of them and their anticipated blocking.
Having recently locked picture on a short film, Joe and I would like to share some of the experience with you. For the sake of chronology and organization, we’re breaking it down into three parts starting with preproduction.
