Behind the scenes of Split Unit
I shot this film in a township in South Africa with a few dedicated cast and crew. We tried as much as possible to portray a war situation somewhere in Africa, but in all, Love conquers War and hatred. It was shot on a Canon 7D, and I used an 18-55mm and 50mm lenses and also with the Cinestyle DSLR Picture profile settings. For sound recording, I used the RODE NTG2 directional Mic and a Zoom H6 and a RODE Boom Pole, while I used the RODE NT1 Cardioid Condenser Microphone for the voice overs.For lights, we used the Red head and also a Pro LED video light. I edited the film on final cut 10 and colour graded in Davinci Resolve.
