Canon Rumors Sponsors a Short Film Project
My friend Mitch from Planet5D decided to make a short film with another new friend Barry Andersson from Deodand Entertainment. Mitch asked if I wanted to provide some funding, and I obliged. The film is the first I’ve seen shot entirely with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and that’s what drew me into the project. I hung out with both of these guys at NAB and was quite impressed by how serious they took the project, from the story, execution and casting. I hope to help more in the future.
Barry Andersson, director and co-producer, said: “The film was designed to fit a budget that many filmmakers and still photographers can afford. My team tailored our shooting schedule, equipment and techniques to be accessible to all budget levels. My goal was to show that people can get absurdly good results with a DSLR camera with a smaller price tag than they realize.”
The film and summary after the break.
