I've been wanting to shoot something for the "myrodereel" competition all summer but was super busy. Finally last week I had some time and within a week we wrote the script, shot and just finished editing the video. We shot our short at the "Tipsy Rabbits" bar and lounge, located in Hongdae in Seoul, South Korea. We rented a Gemball as our main light and used several LED panels for fill and accents. We filmed on my Sony A7iii using a 35mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 lens. We used a NTG3 connected to a RODElink Newsshooter kit which went straight into my camera. Most of the shots were on a tripod with the closeups on a shoulder rig.
