Like a lot of photographers, I have been looking into the convergence of photography and video. I am the proud owner of a Canon 5D MkII which shoots 1080p HD footage and it was about time for me to get it tested in a real situation.
The whole clip is shot with two 5Ds – one on a 24-70mm for the wide shots (by Odi) and the other on a mix of 50mm f/1.8 and 85mm. Each take was filmed from 2 angles at once. We had a bare bulb hanging from a “rope” moving left and right to get that unsettling feeling. The Night shots were done afterward by Odi, from a car and then integrated at editing time. As far as I am aware, only very little post since it looks quite close to the original footage.
