Short Doc - An Artist in the Making

Hi Folks!

Thought I would share with you a short doc I worked on a little while ago... we shot it back in the summer of 2013 and are currently in production for a longer form documentary with the Artist in the film.

We only had a small crew, myself on camera, a director and production assistant. We shot on the Canon 5D Mark 3 for all the stuff in the artist's studio and then on location we shot on the PMW200.

For the longer form doc I am debating shooting on my Sony A7s for the majority of the film and then just bringing in the PMW200 for second camera stuff..

Any advice on using a DSLR style camera for long form documentary work would be appreciated..
