This is a compilation of tilt shift miniature test footage we shot during a research trip for the new documentary film THE AMERICAN BACKROOM. The test footage was shot to explore on settings, locations and motion for the actual shooting of the documentary THE AMERICAN BACKROOM in late 2011. For 3 months we travelled across and back the United States in the fall of 2009.
