1. Please watch with sound, it's meant to be watched with the music : )

    Filmed in Portugal, at my father's land and house he designed and built in the countryside near Grandola. It's a very special place to me, I did a lot of growing up here! I've been waiting months to make this film.

    Filmed using:
    Canon 5D Mark II
    Canon 50mm 1.4 with polarizer
    Sigma 10-20mm 4-5.6 (not a lens for full frame, cropped until vignette was gone)
    An old 28mm 2.8 M42 manual lens
    An old 200mm 2.8 M42 manual lens
    Hague MMC steadicam with custom weights
    Indislider Mini

    Edited and graded in After Effects CS4, using just individual colour curves and levels, and hue & saturation. No third party plugins! A few shots had masks for the sky to adjust the sky separately. I chose to crop this to 2.35 anamorphic aspect ratio for a more genuine film look, since I wanted this as cinematic as possible.

    Featuring my beautiful girlfriend, Carrie, from

    The Cinematic Orchestra - To Build A Home (feat. Patrick Watson)

    Thank you for watching!

  3. Shot on my Canon 550d using the 18-55mm f3.5 kit lens and a tripod, though most shots here were hand-held. Four days since getting my first camera - shooting in the rain was a new learning experience - just how waterproof are these lower end EOS'?
    Graded with Magic Bullet Looks.
    Shot on a rainy Monday night at a local park.
