BLAME was launched at The Melbourne International Film Festival, and will also be shown at the prestigious Toronto Film Festival in September. BLAME also features the Blackchords track 'These Light' which makes a brief appearance at the start of the trailer.
'As Night Falls' is available digitally from August 16th through Valleyarm and available on all good digital download stores including iTunes.
The single is backed by album and live favourite '22' which has been remixed to support the release.
Another short that I shot with the Canon 7D. Its a dreary time of year here in Upstate New York. Not much light or color. Very short days. I went to a waterfall not too far from my house that has an old abandoned mill next to it.
I used the indiSlider in a lot of these shots to add some interest. I call this piece NOVEMBER GRAY, though in reality, the 7D captured alot of color in these scenes! It continues to amaze me. I also shot this one at 1080 24p. I also used the stock lens that cvame in the kit for some of the closeups of the waterfall. Its the 28-135 f.3.5-5.8 IS Canon Lens. Its tack sharp and the depth of field is quite nice when you are zoomed in, even though it's only a f5.8 lens at that point.
I did some color correction, mainly to adjust white balance, I was shooting so early after sun up that the color temperature was changing quite rapidly.
The music is from Digital Juice. Vol. 50 the song is called MOVING FORWARD.
