Director : David O’Reilly
Producer : Vinnie Jassal
Although the competition states 48hr challenge, this project was pulled off in 22hrs, because of scheduling conflicts everything had to be done on the Sunday.
It was great working with David and the gang again as it had been over 10 years since our very first short film, including all Cast, I remember Nico (Party man 1)and Piero (Greg) being as tall as my waist now they are both taller than me !
As for the shoot, it was a skeleton crew, so that included me, me and me, but everyone pitched in (cast) and helped with whatever they can.
Equipment was a 7D with Kit lens and one L series lens, photographic tripod and a handful of lights, and for the time travel effect an Atomic 3000 – oops !!
Went through quite a bit of fuses, but we managed to find the right level and duration to run it at, in hindsight might have been a bit overkill, nah it wasn’t !
As we had to submit on the Monday and knowing the edit will take a bit of time actually it took until 3am, I decided to shoot neutral with Sharp, Sat and Con setting to ’0′, normally I would have loaded Technicolor’s Cinestyle but didn’t want to risk having such a flat image to grade in such a short space of time, even though I filled the shadows, that 7D sure knows how to crunch.
Overall a Sunday well spent.
