A girl misses her train to Milan and is set to wait overnight in Rome until dawn. However, a chance encounter with a guy changes her plans and the night lights of the capital turn into the background to a tender love story. An extraordinary chemistry made of knowing glances and small gestures fills the few instants that separate them both from the sunrise.

Join Steve Weiss, Jens Bogehegn and Dave Schwartz as they unveil Zacuto’s revolutionary new DSLR Gunstock Shooters, set to debut at this year’s NAB show.
"The key here is not to encage with metal, keeping it light at 6.5 lbs. including camera & follow focus make it the only true portable capable of shallow DOF". Steve Weiss, product designer, Zacuto USA
After six months of using DSLR’s, Zacuto is now changing the way DSLR cameras will be used from this point forward. These Gunstock Shooters are universal, quick-releasable and extremely lightweight. They also create the correct form factor for filmmaking by utilizing the Z-finder, Zacuto’s Optical viewfinder, for precision focusing. Steve and Jens explain how these Shooters work like standard video cameras, the five points of contact offered by the Shooters, the usefulness of Zacuto’s new adjustable three-pound Z-Lite weight, and the key differences between each of the four Shooters.
Don't try to make any sense of this. I was just trying to do something "organic" looking, and a little less clean than some of the 5d videos I've seen. Christina and I shot this in and around a shed next to my studio last night after the sun went down. The bluish color was produced in camera with the WB set to incandescent. The lens used was a 45mm Canon T/S-E, and all lighting was "as we found it".
edit: I re-timed the video in 24p, (in compressor, which seems to do a nice job). This version also has been color corrected to remove the purple tone in the original.
