  3. After using my Canon 550D/Rebel t2i for shooting different project the past months, I decided that I wanted to make an actionfilm to test it even more. I bought a new lens for my camera: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM, and a field sound recorder: Zoom ZOH4NK H4n and a boompole so I could record much better sound, and get closer to the object with the shotgun microphone.

    We filmed everything during one day with a Canon 7D and Canon EOS 550D on homemade shoulder-rigs, and used only natural light (the sun and the existing lamps on location). I used Final Cut Pro to edit the film and Color to colorcorrect. I added blood bursts, muzzle flashes, gun-shells and so on in After effects.

    I hope you enjoy the film! :) Homesite:

  5. This is a story about criminals who steal from other criminals — based on a longer, completed feature-length script. Watch it like you're being dropped in the middle of a movie that hasn't actually been made yet. The goal was introduce the viewer to the world of the feature film and tell an incomplete story in order to make the viewer want to see more.

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and made this film look the way it does. Become a fan at:
