Filmed on a Sony A7S Mark ii paired with a Rode NTG-2 Mic, The Midnight Man came to life during a two day period of overnight shoots. The dedicated cast and crew powered through sleepless nights, a lack of AC, and no artificial lighting to create something truly sinister.

The film was shot at a regular location of ours -- my film partner, Olivia's house -- and it was the first horror film anybody on set had made. This year we stepped up our game technically as well, using a Rode NTG-2 instead of the Video Mic Pro from my submission last year and a 4K camera instead of the Canon 60D utilized on past projects.

More than anything, though, this film is a testament to the incredible work a group of dedicated and passionate filmmakers can produce when everything comes together just right.

Thank you to Rode for making this film a truly great experience.
