"The Forest of Hope" was shot on a Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema 4k camera with a 18-55mm lens. Everything was shot hand-held. Audio was recored on a Zoom H5 Handy recorder with a Rode VideoMic. The film was edited using Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Audition.
The film was shot at Oregon Ridge Park located outside of Baltimore, Maryland. Additional audio was recorded with my Rode VideoMic at Liberty Reservoir, located in Eldersburg, Maryland. Music provided by Storyblocks Audio.
The entire project was completed by me (except for acting).
