So here it is. The new Canon 5Dmk3

You can see the photographs from the shoot here:


It's amazing what can happen in 24 hours and how so many people can drop tools in an instant to make something cool happen. So there's a few people to thank.

Firstly Stuart and Olivia Buchanan. (Our bride and groom). You guys are insane. Thanks so much for believing in our crazy ideas and traveling up from Hamilton just for the shoot.

Chris Lam Sam and Jeremy Mayall from Scorelocks Collective for writing the music track. They are freakin amazing composers and I'm so stoked with what they came up with.
Check out their Facebook Page here. If you've got any music needs, THESE ARE YOUR GUYS!

Michael, Joe and Lin for bringing your Kessler Crane down. It made it in there for one shot!

And thanks to Melissa, Bradley and Anupam who came armed with umbrellas to keep our lights and cameras dry! Turns out the rain didn't play its part. But we made the most of it anyway.


The 5Dmk3 is a pretty awesome camera to film with. To be honest its still a bit of a blur (not the camera, my memory!). Yesterday was just a crazy rush so I didn't get much time to familiarize myself with it. It was pretty much turn it on and start shooting.

6400ISO looked mint. Most of the footage was actually shot at about 3200ISO. The wide shot of the silo with the long grass was shot at 8000ISO if I remember correctly. I had a wow moment when I first turned it on last night. The screen is amazing to say the least. Some of the buttons aren't where they used to be which was a bit frustrating. But all in all, its got me sold!

The film was shot at 1280x720 at 60fps using the new AIl-I codec. It was converted to ProRes 422 before editing it. I got my colour temperature how I wanted it in camera so the grade was pretty light. Just tweaked the contrast a bit and gave the blacks a blue tinge. Thats it. Oh and slowed down of course. It was rendered out at 25fps.

The film was shot on the Canon Primes.
EF 24 1.4L
EF 35 1.4L

EF 135 2.0L (this lens was used for about 80% of the shots and used wide open).
