Another short film

After working with Peter Naylor on Adrift he gave me a call to see if I’d be interested in shooting another short film he was working on. Un-named at the moment the film is still in production but Pete has recently posted some frame grabs from it which are looking very nice indeed.

The whole thing was shot on the 5D MarkII and involved some pretty cold and wet shooting. At various points during the one day shoot I found myself standing in a river with my Miller tripod submerged to the head and the 5D scarily close to the water. At one point I was using Pete’s 5D on a Jib and did accidentally touch the water with it! The camera was mounted upside down so only the hot-shoe went in but luckily it was fine.

Pete handled the whole incident much better than I would have done, although I would have replaced it of course if I’d damaged it…. phew!

Most of the shots shown here were done with the 50mm f1.2, with the exception of the bridge shot where I used the 70-200 f2.8 from the other side of the river.

    Yeah Paul your lucky it was fine, I dunno, just because your 5D now has a few scuffs and mines still got that new smell about it, Im glad I told you to stand in that cold river! LOL
