A New Camera, A New Short Film

Film Production

It’s about that time again!

My original aim was to shoot twice this summer, and I believe I will achieve that goal by the end of it!

I’ve slowly gathered equipment through the years, but have been borrowing and renting cameras for a while now, it’s difficult to shoot without using full frame cameras nowadays considering how readily available they are, and it truly stands out when you don’t.

I’ve bought a Canon 6D.

Using the money I pulled┬átogether from my previous job I have bought that along with a 50mm prime lens and a 24-105mm zoom lens. I’ve gone with this set up rather than the popular 5D mark 3 as it was significantly cheaper, and the shoots I do tend to focus less on the pros of the 5D so it won’t be too much of a worry.

I have been working on a script for a new which I aim to enter into festivals, about two men meeting under a tunnel. It aims to be a homage to La Haine and Sergio Leone , and I’m really looking forward to shooting it!

I’ve got Rob Searle back on board to do cinematography, and Recount Archives are looking at sound design! The shoot will hopefully take place in the coming month as we have the majority of pre-production finished. I’m not going to disclose scripts this time and but will release these once the film has run its course, instead here’s a shot of the tunnel we will be shooting in.

All in all I’m really looking forward to the next month!
