Behind the scenes of Meat the Parents

Meat the Parents was shot in one night from about 6pm-2am. We shot the film on two Panasonic GH4 cameras in 4k. For audio we used Rode VideoMics as well as a Zoom H4n. We also used a Rode VideoMic for some foley in post.

We had no professional lighting gear on set and our main source of light was from two can lights.
