From frame compression to ADR, we used many tricks we've learned as filmmakers in this short. Seek's claustrophobic forests & tight spaces along with vast looking fields were thanks to our specific choice of lenses. We made sure to use these to our advantage to make the film's tone intimate, and distant when it needed to be. All music was composed using Cubase 5. Speaking of sound, not all was recorded on-set. Because of the action in this film, there were times where our director had to verbally cue actors for scenes, and in editing, that sound was replaced in post production (all recorded with the Rode NTG3). Even some lines were replaced! A majority of sound effects you hear were also created either on-set, or in a studio and recorded with the Rode NTG3. Equipment used includes: Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6K, Rokinon 24mm, Olympus 50mm, Rode NTG3 Shotgun microphone, Rode Blimp, Rode Boom Pole, Zoom H4N, Flolights, Softboxes, Can lights from Home Depot, and some amazing crew members.
