Our entry into the 2009 National Film Challenge
. We had the theatrical premier at the Terrace Theater on James Island this evening.
We used two cameras, a 5D Mark II running Magic Lantern with a Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L and a stock 7D with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4. Both cameras were in 1080p30 mode with a 1/60th shutter and typically f/1.2-f/2.0. All of the rack-focus moves were on the 5D using a Cinevate Durus follow-focus, which didn't cooperate well with the 85mm's focus-by-wire system. They mixed together well after the extensive desaturation; the color balance between the two was widely off even with identical temperature settings.
Audio was recorded on the 5D with Magic Lantern, using a juicedLink CX231 preamp and a AT875R in a Rode blimp. The in-camera gains were +0 dB analog, +12 dB digital. The 7D's audio was used as a guide track to align the clips, although there really wasn't much shot with the 7D.
