In Search of the Mystabeest | My Rode Reel 2019

Watch the Behind The Scenes:

The film was shot in Guerilla style with a 4 member skeleton crew in a forest in Kadiri, India.

We used a Sony a6000 camera with a 50mm prime lens, a variable Neutral Density filter, a tripod and a homemade PVC handheld camera rig. We recorded the audio with a boompole that consisted of a refashioned broom stick and a Rode Video Mic Pro + into a Tascam DR-22WL pocket recorder.

The anamorphic look in the film was achieved using a plastic disk with an oval shaped hole. This was stuck to the front of the lens.

We used Adobe Creative Cloud suite for post: Premiere Pro to edit the film and Adobe After Effects for VFX. Gimp 2.0 was used to edit photos and design the poster.

We licensed the music through MusicBed.
