The descent into hell is the best path to redemption.
Sometimes you have to "pay" the price for your acts, while you'll never have a second chance to go back and correct what you've done.
Behind the scenes of Pòlis
The whole production & filming took place in the south of France, including the cities: Aix-en-Provence, Le Rove & Marignane.
We decided to write, shot & finally participate to the "Rode Reel 2016" film festival, just 4 days before the closing date. So we wrote the story, inspired by the poem "Pòlis" (The City) by C.P.Cavafy, we immediately shot everything in less than 2 days, & then, we spend a very few time for a quick editing / post-production.
Material that we've used (this is also mentioned in the BTS video), is:
- Sony A7Rm2 camera,
- Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens,
- Commlite adapter (so to attach the lens on the camera),
- Schneider Cinelux ES 2x anamorphic,
- Rectilux CoreDNA,
- Rode Stereo Videomic X,
- SmallHD 501 monitor,
- Sony headphones,
- LED lights.
Some extra stuff we used for the BTS video:
- Canon EF 40mm f/2.8,
- Slr Magic anamorphot-50 1.33x.
