This short film was produced to test and showcase D-SLR video being applied in a macro scenario. It was shot over 2 sessions both in the First Light studio and a nearby tropical greenhouse for GV's and context.
Equipment used was a Canon 1D MkIV fitted with MPE65, 100/2.8 and 70-200/2.8 lenses. The camera was supported on a Gitzo 5 series tripod and heavy video head.
A quick edit was achieved using supplied i-movies 9 on an i-Mac. Wild Track was added in post and mixed with ambient sound recorded with a Sennheiser MKE400 fitted to the camera.
I would like to thank Canon UK and Jigsaw24.com for equipment support and Alex at The Living Rainforest for access to some fabulous plants.
