Overground, another experimental short film shot once again on the Canon 550d using the 18-55 kit lens only!
Me and a few friends were in town, and I had brought along my 550d with the intention of filming something other than the typical ‘Autumn/Nature’ stuff that you see a bit too much nowadays. We came across a really industrial type hotel car park which upper-levels weren’t in use, and decided to film there. As usual, no planning was involved with this, so I just searched the building for what could look interesting on-screen.
Graffiti, CCTV cameras, and other abstract objects were around the building which I decided to shoot, looking for a more shallow DOF feel to it. Also, after discovering Twixtor a few days before and having a sudden interest in slow-motion, I knew that I wanted to shoot at 60fps and cut for slow-mo afterwards, so if you were wondering, I shot the whole film at 720p/60fps.
When I got home I tried to cut it together as well as I could, using Sony Vegas Pro 10 and coloured it within Vegas as well.
