High Cotton Films is the independent production company of filmmakers Colin Miller and Alex Cain.
This was all shot on a Canon 5D Mark II. We used a 16-35mm Canon f/2.8 L series lens for the wide shots; a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 and a Canon EF 100mm Macro lens were used for everything close.
The pushing/dolly shot was done with a Konova Slider. We use the K3 80cm (31.5")
We used a Glidecam HD 4000 for the shot chasing Michael across the lawn to the door.
In this film we used ARRI Fresnel lights both indoors and outdoors with daylight temperature filters in all scenes.
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 and Foley recording in ProTools 8.
The beautiful ray gun in "My Alien Valentine" is a work of art hand forged in bronze and aluminum by Scott Nelles in his Michigan foundry. He only makes a few each year. You can get one here:
The alien's heart shaped wig was custom made by Outfitter's Wig of Hollywood. You can get one just like it here:
The heart of chocolates was made by Whitman's. You can get the same one here: http://www.russellstover.com/jump.jsp...
