This is a short film I shot with some of my closest friends, collectively temporarily known as VSF Films.
It was all of our first short film. Hopefully there will be more in the future.
We are making an extended version of this film, since we had a 5min time constraint.
We filmed it on my 60d and used a 50 1.2L, 24-70 2.8L, a 50 1.8 for the dream sequence to do some lens whacking with, and a Rokinon 16mm.
We used a DIY slider made by my friend Brandon (audio dude for the film) and a DIY jib made by my friend
Ethan. We also used a Flycam, Benro monopod, and spider rig. All the lighting was with these little photo lights Brandon has and whatever natural light we could use and bounce with reflectors.
We shot everything with the superflat picture profile, and magic latern for a closer 180degree shutter angle.
Graded in Final Cut X using Osirus LUT plug-in and Film Convert.
