We shot this all in 1 night at the Huntington Beach pier.

The camera used was the Panasonic GX85 on Cine-D using the Voigltander 17.5mm f/.95, SLR Magic 35mm f/.95, and Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 on a Metabones Speedbooster XL.

For audio we used the Rode Lavalier and hid it on the actors using moleskin in the collar for "Sean" and clipping it in the scarf for "Liz". It worked perfectly to capture audio with surprisingly no wind noise and practically no clothes rustling sounds.

The behind the scenes camera was the Panasonic GH4 + Rode Videomic Pro.

The goal was to be as discrete and simple as possible so we wouldn't have to carry around a boom pole and attract attention.
