This is lovely. Really like that you tried to weave a personal story into it. Can I ask what your process is like to get those beautiful video portraits of locals? Are you travelling with a native Spanish speaker or a Columbian local?

Thank you. I mostly just talk to the locals first and then ask to take their portrait. Then I get uncomfortably close :). It's something that you have to get used to I suppose and can be very difficult at first. Also there are tricks to getting long takes like this without insulting the people. We didn't take a fixer, but that certainly does make it easier.

I directed this almost three years ago as part of an in-class assignment (we had like 90 minutes total to shoot the whole short with a randomized crew) back at my old film studies program at UNC Wilmington. My DP on the project ended up making a huge difference on the quality of the film, as he looked at my detailed storyboards and got really creative with the lighting rig and using the Lensbaby Sweet 35 tilt-shift lens for the distorted close-up shots of the mystery maniac in the hallway.

I don't remember what camera we used specifically for this, but I know it was a Canon DSLR of some sort. Shortly after I graduated from the school, apparently the college opted to upgrade their rental camera sets with a bunch of Sony A7sII's, so no one that's there now seems to remember what model we used back in 2015.

Great stuff. The GH5 did real justice to the colors. Well done, music and all.

Thanks mate. Yes, the GH5 is a fantastic camera. I'm really looking forward the new S1/S1R bodies but for now this is great.
