Our movie was just picked up.

I've received some fantastic news. We just closed a deal today for
distribution of BIO-DEAD, which was shot entirely on the XL2.

Lightning Entertainment will be releasing the movie in the US and Canada.
The initial plan is to have its world premiere on VOD in August, with a DVD release following sometime after that. It took a long time, in both production and workflow.

I'd be happy to answer any questions about the process if it helps anyone here.
Best,
-C

You must be really psyched. Congratulations!
Behinds-the-scenes pix are always useful and welcome.

Thanks Jack.
B.T.S. pictures are on the website.
Also, the Fangoria article (under news) shows how the makeup was applied.

Camera Details:
For the depth of field stuff we use the Letus XL (now discontinued) and used the 3x wide for almost everything else. For steady shots, we used the glidecam 4000 pro along with the smooth shooter (sometimes in low-mode).
