Without any memory of what happened he starts looking for his team, one of which is very dear to him. After finding a clue he meets a lonely pastor. The man, introducing himself as Virgil, tells Daniel he might know where his teammates went. Although Daniel remains vigilant, he knows he has no choice but to follow him through a world that isn't what it looks like. The film was made by a small group of student graduates in the course of three years. They started shooting back in 2011, but during the last day of an eight day shoot the footage got stolen from their car. Only two months passed after the theft when the group returned to Belgium and started shooting the film again, entirely. After that, the film's director spent two years to finance the VFX and finish the film in his spare time. It was shot entirely with a Canon t2i (550D) with Contax Zeiss lenses.

      • AT 897 ME64 MKE400

        Comparing AT 897 ME64 MKE400 outdoor. I was thinking about upgrading my MKE400, but after trying a few mics decided to stick with it. I tried AT897, NTG-3, and ME64. NTG-3 sounds the best, but it requires a preamplifier, which is extra weight and money. I did not like the sound of ME64 at all, even tough I though it might work because of its smaller size. If I had to upgrade right now, I would go with AT897. But MKE400 does a decent job, and what I learned from all those blogs I went through: it is more important how you use your mic, not what kind of mic you have. From now on I am going to use my MKE400 on a boom poole as much as possible (I am using my hiking walking pole as a boom pole). I tried it a few times and it does make a difference. If I ever get a camcorder with XLR inputs I probably would get the NTG-3 (not shown in this video) - it sounded really well.

          Just testing the difference between the onboard stereo mic on the Canon XH-A1 versus the Audio Technica AT897 shotgun mic (yeah, i said it wrong in the video, hehe). The shotgun mic was positioned a bit above my head. Maybe just a bit closer than what you'd follow someone with. Good mic though.

                Just got an AT897 shotgun - trying to decide if it beats my Sennheiser MKE 400. The first impression: AT sounds better, but MKE does a great job for its size. Which one to keep? Will be doing more testing. May be the AT will prove worthy in more challenging situations, but on my backpacking trips every ounce counts, so it better show some results!

                  A/B Comparison with the Tascam iXZ and Digidesin Mbox 1 and Shure Camcorder Interface A96F. All three devices are solutions to record external XLR microphones into a DSLR or portable digital recorder (with 1/8 inch input but without XLR inputs). For this test I use an Audio Technica AT897 Short Condenser Shotgun Microphone and a Zoom H1 Portable Digital Recorder. No audio postprocessing apart from converting the mono signal of the Mbox 1 into a dual mono signal. The Shure A96F and the Tascam iXZ have dual mono outputs. I recorded each setup roughly 30 seconds and then did a short extract for better A/B comparison. Audio from Zoom H1 was synced with video by DualEyes from Singular Software. Adapter for splitting microphone/headphone input from combined iPhone input between Tascam iXZ and Zoom H1 is this E-Bay item http://www.ebay.com/itm/360377501221) The sound of the Digidesign Mbox 1 and the Tascam iXZ is comparable while the Mbox has a much higher gain on maximum level. However, the Mbox 1 is larger and only works with connection to a USB port of a computer (neither a powered USB nor a battery pack with USB interface works e.g. Just Mobile Gum Pro). The sound of the Shure camcorder interface A96F is a little thinner than the Mbox and the Tascam. The Shure A96F needs additional gain from the Zoom H1 and can be insufficent for lower volume environments (but does not need any battery). The Shure A96F in this setup was used with the Impedance Selection to 150 ohms (+12db). The sound quality difference between the recording devices Zoom H1 and Nikon D7000 is much higher than the differences between the preamps (respectively passive adapter). I would love to see direct comparison between the AT897 on the Zoom H4N versus the Zoom H1/Tascam iXZ combination (but don't own the H4N).

                      Had the chance to shoot some video the other day of some guys who were passing through Charleston on their year-long adventure that just started. Leon Griffin, owner of WVO Designs.com, called and said "Hey, I'm going to be pulling up in front of your house in a few minutes with some guys in a bus that runs on veggie oil and want to shoot some video." So, I was like, "Ummm, Okay!" Cameras: 60D and T2i Lenses: Sigma 30mm f1.4 on the 60D / Tokina 11-16 f2.8 on the T2i. Audio: Audio Technica AT897 into a Zoom H4n into the 60D.
