The following footage was shot with the 5D Mark II, using a Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM lens, on a Kessler Crane Pocket Jib. A Zacuto Mini Baseplate and rods were used to support the camera and follow focus.
All sounds before the record scratch are Foley effects that we recorded separately after the shoot, then later synced in post.
The 5D's H.264 source files were edited directly in Vegas Pro, colour corrected with AAV ColorLab, graded in Magic Bullet Looks, rendered to Cineform HD, then compressed in AVS Video Converter for internet distribution.
Many thanks to my AC, Ben Dean, who did a fantastic job pulling focus wide open, and of course Mr. Antonio Geezahrelli, who endured the bitterly cold temperatures of the British winter for the few hours Ben and I faffed around setting up shot.

P.S. The idiot you hear laughing in the background is Ben. He has problems controlling himself.
