High Cotton Films is the independent production company of filmmakers Colin Miller and Alex Cain.
Our 1st AC on "Salt", is our friend Phi Vu. By day, Phi is a digital sculptor. Check out his amazing 3D creations at:
This was all shot on a Canon 7D and a Canon 5D Mark II. We used a 16-35mm Canon f/2.8 L series lens for the wide shots and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM for everything close.
The pushing/dolly shots were done with a Konova Slider. We use the K3 80cm (31.5")
We used ARRI Fresnel lights.
We cut and colored with Avid Media Composer 6.
For Production Sound we recorded with a Zoom H4n Portable Digital Recorder.
We did our sound mixing in ProTools 8.
Kaden's Chef Hat is made by Winco.

The 10 pies we baked, minus the salt, were made with:
Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix
Libby's Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix
Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk
... and 2 eggs.
