It's the last day of summer in rural Illinois, 1967. A boy lays alone in the dirt. Trying to catch his breath, sweat rolling down his face, he remembers a recent encounter with two other boys. As the conversation unfolds we slowly realize who we are seeing and why he's alone.
After hard work, weâ€™ve finally wrapped the production of our new short â€œRED WALKERâ€. And, of course, weâ€™re crazy excited to hear some feedback from you guys :)
The film is about 4 min long, featuring a Canadian actress, one from Norway, and another Norwegian with an acting background from New York. We shot it on Canon 7D with an Anamorphic adapter to get that cinematic analog vibe. If thereâ€™s any questions concerning the technical/visual aspect of the film, fire away!
Hereâ€™s the short:
I managed to get my hands on an ISCO-OPTIC Cinemascope Ultra Star Lens (one of the smaller versions), an anamorphic projection lens that i have to say; Its really sharp! And taking in consideration this is the first time we've operated an anamorphic projection lens on a filmset, i'm quite happy with the result!
The ana-lens was mounted on a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, a lens i can't say i'm proud to own. What do you think?
Shot on the Canon 7D, settings all set to flat, then graded in After Effects and cut in Premiere Pro.
We've made a couple of films before, including a sci-fi feature, so have a look if this was interesting:
We also have a facebook, if youâ€™d like to get in touch or stay up to date with content:
Enjoy, and give us a little heads-up in the comments-section about what you think! Weâ€™re constantly looking for improvement, so a little input from you guys only makes good better :)
Looking forward to hear from you,
