    Saskatchewan is famous for its skies, flat landscape and harsh climate. However, for people who choose to live there, it is much more than that. For the short film, “A Moment of Silence”, I wanted to create a short narrative documenting why I love Saskatchewan and why I love heading out to explore its vast landscape. Not only is it extremely diverse, it offers many options for outdoor activities throughout the seasons.

    With the recent release of the Kessler CineDrive system, I wanted to release a new short film that utilizes some of the features of the system.

    This video was shot on location in Saskatchewan, Canada. Special thanks to David Bannerman of MediaVoice.ca (Nova Scotia, Canada) for the voice-over and mixing.

  4. Pre-production is by far the most important part of the process for not only time-lapse photography but film-making as a whole. By being prepared from the beginning and by having a well laid out plan, production & post-production will ALWAYS go way smoother. There are a few specific areas that I will be investigating as part of the pre-production phase. I will be covering:

    • Story
    • Scheduling
    • Scouting

    What I want to do with this video is give you a few tips that will hopefully help your shooting experience go smoother. To help with this process, I will be producing a new short at the same time and use it as a real world example showcasing my workflow.

    Tutorial Technical Specs

    For this tutorial, my gear selection was a little different from my other projects because of the location in which I was shooting. Due to the fact that I hiked in to film this, I had to condense my kit. In regards to cameras, I shot on 2xCanon 5D Mark II’s using the 24-105mm 4.0L, 14mm 2.8L, 50mm 1.2L, and the 70-200mm 2.8L II. In regards to sound, I used the RØDE Lavalier for the on camera content and the NTG3 for the SFX / Ambient audio.

    In regards to support gear, I used the Manfrotto 055 Carbon Fiber Tripod – 3 Section tripods with Kessler Low Profile Ball Heads & Kwik Release plates to attach the cameras. For the drive lapse shots, I used the Kessler Shuttle Pod Mini, Kessler Stealth & the Shape Mountains.

    Special Thanks to Nils Sorensen for this help on this project!!!
