Well ok, the recording was done using pro tools on a power mac using a vintage akg c12 microphone. Video was done with a 35mm adapter. Editing was done on a macbook pro using final cut pro. Conversion was done using compressor.
Still I'm just a regular dad, playing with gadgets. No planning was done with the shoot. Just having fun! It is really hard to manually focus under direct sun with the little canon hv20 lcd. 8-(.
