I'm pleased to announce the teaser trailer for Terry and Brenda is now online. We're halfway through production, with two more days of shooting to go. So far I'm beyond happy, the cast and crew have exceeded my expectations and everything is looking and sounding amazing.
For any technical people, I'm shooting this short film entirely on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, which I'm really impressed with so far. For a Super 16 sensor it's surprisingly good in low light.
Last year I bought a Movexoom6 Super 8 camera off eBay. I've always wanted to shoot something on Super 8 film so I invested in a few rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100D. I used two of the rolls on a paid job for a client, which will be viewable online in the near future. I used the spare roll whilst on a walk around my local area of Putney, in London.
It was so much fun shooting on Super 8, I especially love hearing the noise of the film rolling through the gate. With digital technology everything is so immediate, you can watch back what you've just recorded at the press of a button, so it was quite refreshing not knowing exactly what the footage will look like, and having to wait a couple of weeks for it to be processed and telecined. The video below is pretty much the roll of film as it was shot, minus a couple of edits here and there. I hope you enjoy.
