    New Short Film shot with 7D

    Hey everyone,

    Check out my latest 4 minute short film that we shot with the 7D (with Nikon lenses). It was a lot of fun. Aside from the lack of a viewfinder (we used my friend's LCDVF to great effect), it was great!

    We shot in a variety of light conditions - the brightest beach to the darkest night. The 7D handled it all with grace. I am continually amazed at what these DSLRs can do. Incredible.

    Check it out here: http://vimeo.com/groups/beyondthestill/videos/10363683

    Cheers,
    Keegan

    Looks really good, man. Nice acting and sound work as well!

    The wobbling in almost every shot of someone's face really took away from what was there, looked like you were using long enough lenses to cause a problem if they were handheld. I would've liked to have seen those shots from a tripod instead.

    Hi Keegan,

    It looked fantastic.

    I just didn't buy that the guy would toss the wallet out his window without any awareness whatsoever. He was just staring right at it. The likelihood of that actually happening is so low as to be unbelievable. Perhaps there's a fix...

    yeah, I tried to make it seem plausible that after moving the wallet into the light to get a better view of the photo, he is startled by the gunshot and drops it, and then is too worried about the rest of the situation to stop to pick up his wallet. it works for some, it doesn't for others. I puzzled a long time on how to make that beat feel real. Sorry it didn't work for ya!

    Agreed. Most noticeable on the 85mm for sure. I also would have preferred all shots with that lens to have been on a tripod. All the shots of faces on the beach were on a tripod. Not sure which shots of faces you mean, actually. But there was definitely some wobble in places!

    I thought it was inoffensive and, prior to your comment, intended, a la "The Shield." It helps further the story, imo.
