"Father Figure" is a short film about Apollo McCants and how his late father taught him to box. The film uses voiceover, re-enactments, and photography to illustrate his youth juxtaposed with current video.
The production was filmed on the Panasonic AF100 and 2 body-mounted GoPro Hero2 cameras (for fighting photography). On the AF100 I used the Voightlander 25mm, f.095 with the Century Optics 16x9 Anamorphic Adapter (hence the long lens flares seen throughout the film). In the Avid I corrected the Anamorphic stretch, creating the black bars on the film.
