You look like a master of the Letus.

Which lenses are you using, and have you any tricks for focusing so well?

Thanks for the comment :) Honestly I just look at the monitor and focus till it looks best. I have a Redrock FollowFocus for shots where the focus needs to be adjusted during a shot but other than that its all about having a keen eye I suppose. Make sure you have a good monitor to focus with too, I own a 7in Marshall monitor.

For lenses I'm using Nikon Primes. I have a 50 F1.4, 28 F2.8, and 85 F2.0. They work just fine :)

Fantastic looking video... I really loved it when he slammed his fist down and it made the camera shake... Very clean audio... Good pace... Can't wait to see the finished product...

Looks great Kyle! What setting did you use for YouTube?

Hey, great trailer! The film you are making looks awesome - the test footage I've seen so far of the Letus is great but it's nice to see the Letus in action on a feature film such as this one. It's shots like these which are making me seriously consider getting the Letus Extreme. Good luck with the completion of your film - I know it will turn out great!

Hey guys, we need some prayer for this weeks shoot. The weather doesn't look like its going to be cooperative and we need this week to be successful. Above all pray for Saturday where we have planned extras and cars for props and all sorts of things that we've already tried once and got rained out. Pray the rain holds off and that we get what we need shot because it will be very difficult to set this up for a third try.

Thanks a lot everyone, your support is appreciated, as always. :)

I'll definitely throw in some prayer, Kyle. Don't let the bad weather deter you, especially if this is something you feel led to do by God. My first film, The Broken Quiet, faced a similar situation once. We were reshooting the beginning, and it was threatening to rain the entire time we were out there. Fortunately, it didn't start until after we moved to the indoor shoot, and then, it wasn't visible -- in fact, it kept the sun dim enough that you could see clearly outside without need of much light inside -- which upped the scene's quality in look substantially.

Looking back at the outdoor scene, it was absolutely beautiful. The sun was perfect, the clouds were gorgeous, the colors muted and depressing, which was absolutely spot on perfect for that scene.

So, never fear -- it might just be the Divine doing a little art direction. :)

The rig looks as great as the screenshots - I believe that's a Letus (or perhaps not?), but what else am I looking at?
