First day of filming with my new Blackmagic Cinema Camera (EF). We went to the woods to film some stock footage and get a general feel for the camera but decided to throw a very simple story together. I found the woods to be a good place to practice follow focusing seeing as there are many branches to remind you if you are not in focus. At the end of the day I felt like I had a pretty good grasp on it. I had never had the equipment available to me before and I have to say it is incredibly useful. After reviewing the footage while playing with a Korg MS2000 to come up with a score, we decided to make a French influenced indie-esque film. Mind you neither of us are french, so we did the best we could to mimic Google translator. Shot, edited, and scored within 12 hours.
