Performed live by Byron Gore and Jessica Ann Kelley.
Shot & Edited by Henry Tuason. Second Camera operated by Aleisha Gore.
Two-camera shoot shot on hacked Panasonic GH1 and GH2. GH1 with old Vivitar 28mm f2.5 manual lens, GH2 with Nikon 50mm f1.8 manual lens. Natural window lighting (midday) and whiteboard reflector for fill, halogen torch lamp behind actress for hairlight.
No lip-syncing here, live performances captured and final audio compiled from four separate takes. Audio recorded using MXL condenser microphone attached to Tascam DP-008 portable recorder. Raw wave file processed in Garageband with several reverbs and equalized in FCP.
B&W look achieved in 3-way color corrector by reducing saturation to very minimum and boosting red to create warm black tone. Black level increased and highlights were slightly lowered. Overall contrast raised to desired look. Letterbox added for cinematic aspect ratio.
