  5. FULL BLOG POST ABOUT WHOLE SHOOT. Conception, shooting, lighting and post here: wp.me/p3ggTR-7VS

    It also includes a link to download the 4K version (heavily compressed) and an original f55 raw clip.
    A rare glimpse into the the life on an Amish Man, Dennis Hochstetler.

    For three years I have wanted to do a mini documentary on this Amish carpenter that my good friend Eric Kessler is friends with. The Amish are very private, despite a few rare exceptions, they do not appear on camera and they don’t do interviews! Eric tried to convince him but it was never going to happen.

    Whilst over in Indiana in September I wanted to give it one more shot, I wanted to meet him, show him some of work and convince him that all I wanted to do was a short film where I could lean more about their lifestyle and hopefully as people.

    Relucatantly he agreed on the provision that none of their faces could be seen and he could approve it before I put it up online. The former...not ideal. To connect ro someone you really need to see their faces, their eyes, but I had to respect this. The latter is something I never do for personal docs. For client work of course, every time. I agreed though. I wanted to make this film as everything about the lifestyle facsinates me...that he had said yes surprised everyone I told where I was staying in Indiana. "The Amish don't go on camera!"

    Naturally in ten minutes there is only so much that can be covered. I wanted to learn a litle bit about their history, why they live their lives like this, why they shy away from technology and so much more! Most importantly though I wanted to know the man.

    I hope now that I have gained Dennis' trust I can go back for more than an afternoon and really get to know him, his family and their community. I really hope so.

    This stuff inside was filmed in the afternoon, includes the interview which gave me a shot list for the next day, basically all my b-roll. I cover this whole idea in the blog post. It's almost written!

    TECH STUFF: Shot on the Sony F55 (all the indoors stuff) and the Canon 1DC for the outside B-Roll. There wa a reason for this and it will be covered in the upcoming blog post.

    I used the 2 foot Kessler Cineslider for the slider shots and the new Parallax add on the Cineslider and Pocket Dollies for those slider shots where the object remains central. Check it out at gopb.co/kessler
    Audio was a Sony UWP wireless mic with Sanken Cos-11 mic. Rode NTG-3 on the Sony F55 and Rode Video Mic Pro on the 1DC.

    Lighting was available light and two lights from Gecko, both LEDs. Detailed in the blog post.

    Lenses: Sigma 18-35mm F1.8, Canon 70-200 F4 IS, 2X extender. Zeiss ZF Macro 100mm, Zeiss ZF 135mm F2. Rokina 24mm F1.4. Tamron 24-70 F2.8

    Edited in Premiere CC in HD and re-linked to 4K. No reframing was done. Why 4K? Because I hadn't shot anything in Sony 4k raw at this point.

    Colour graded with Colorista II. 10% off the colour suite and shooter suite with code bloom10 at gopb.co/redgiant
    also FilmConvert within Premiere CC. 10% off Filmconvert via this link gopb.co/filmconvert or with code bloom
