Behind the scenes of Failure to Launch

In order to film this short, we used a Canon 5D Mark iii as the center camera that is seen in the film with a rode microphone on the camera and a Canon 7D as a roaming camera that was mounted on a shoulder rig. Since this is a movie about making a movie, we had to give it a more set look but very indie at the same time, so to achieve more film set look we used the green screen room of a studio company, Creative Soul, based in Toronto, and added two 650 watts lights with deflectors in front of it. William Whites provided all the lighting equipment for this film. Our whole purpose in the film was to show how a film is made and what things are usually present, therefore the lights and center camera are seen in the film. The main short film is some what a making of how a film is made and the struggles of making a film.
