A former colleague and director asked me if I could shoot this short film based around an idea he pitched for a commercial. We spent one Saturday evening in central Stockholm and a couple of hours the next day for the daylight scene.
I think he did a great job moulding my footage into this little piece.
My Sony PMW-F3 was used recorded in 1080p25 to a Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 Prores 422HQ. The one line was picked up by a Sennheiser EW100 G3 microphone and we used no lighting. It was a run and gun production so not possible to carry to much gear around.
Lenses used were the Samyang T-primes and a Canon 70-200/2.8.
Each time you get a new camera you have to find out what quirks there are and how to best use it. I had a simple idea to make a portrait of my former colleague and friend Håkan Lidman which suited me perfect as a first try out for the Sony PXW-FS7.
For the indoor shots I had the camera on a tripod and for the outdoor shots I did everything hand held with the camera as is.
Since I have a bunch of Canon lenses I used a Metabones SpeedBooster Ultra with the latest 0.38 firmware installed. Lenses used were Canon 16-35/2.8 L, 24-105/4 L and 85/1.2 mkII. All performed well with the camera without any real issues.
I recorded the indoor stuff in UHD and the outdoor stuff in 1080p25 and 150fps. Edit and grading done in Premiere Pro CC 2014.
