Taking place in Los Angeles on June 28th, 2009, thousands of protesters showed support for Iran by marching from the Federal Building near Veteran Avenue, up Wilshire Boulevard to Westwood Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard and Sepulveda Boulevard, then back to the Federal Building.
Shortly after shooting the footage from the March, I came across the video clip of Neda Agha-Soltan and her last few living seconds on earth. All I can say is that I had a loss for words. I guess this video is a form of self expression in regards to what is happening in Iran.
On a technical note, this piece was my second attempt with the Panasonic Lumix GH1. This was shot entirely handheld with the stock lens. A few other notes were:
Shot in Creative Movie Mode @ 720p60
Used .9 Heliopan Multicoated ND Filter
Shot around f5, about 1/200-1/250, Iso 100.
Really slight CC in CS4 with a subtle vignette added in FCP.
Utilized Cinema tools for Slow-motion
Final compression through Compressor.
Music: "Post War" by M. Ward
