All Shot on a Canon 7D and Zoom H4n. Lenses used: a Canon 80-200mm 2.8 (at F4), Canon 28mm 1.8 (at F4) and 50mm Lens Baby Composer (at F5.6). Used a cheap $99 slider and a Redrock Micro follow focus rig (Captain Stubing.) 7D files where converted to CineForm AVI where the audio was sync'd using the DualEyes beta software (worked perfectly.) The editing was done on Premiere Pro CS5 on three different PCs (running Vista and/or Seven) with no experienced editors (other than my own dabbling, and an hour+ help from Jake Segraves.) The very minor color correction was done in FirstLight. One day I'll revisit for a more extensive color correction and edit tweak. The film you see here was written, shot, edited and finished in HD 24p, within 48 hours.
