This is a rough cut of a screenplay written and directed by Mike Lawson. He and I met through Vimeo and got together and shot this in May 2012 just North of Cincinnati near and around Franklin, Ohio.
Storyline - "Hank is out-of-work and poses as former boom operator for "The Shawshank Redemption" to get a $900/week boomer operator job in local film."
This full length film is scheduled to be shot later in 2012. I am not sure I can make the entire shoot but it has been great working with Mike Lawson and Mike Toffan who did the audio. Also thanks to Chris Swainhart for the tireless reviews and feedback. Thanks to Mr. Frosty for the great opening location and let's not forget Hank and Sam :-)
I shot this on my Canon C300 in CineLock using several Canon L lenses and a Zeiss EF 35mm. I used a Zacuto Newsman with a few accessories and have to say it worked fantastic for this type of work.
I imported all into FCPX using the Canon XF plugin. I am a shadetree editor and less of a grader :-) As expected, the Vimeo version is less quality so if you are interested, I enabled the downloading of the file.
Audio was varied using a Rode NTG3 shotgun in camera and a combination of a Marantz PDM661 and Zoom H4N with a Sanken CS3e and a Mitra 3D Mic.
I hope you enjoy and comments and creative criticism welcome.
