The HVX lives on with "The Little Death"
 
On Tuesday, I saw Bret Wood's new feature called "The Little Death." The movie was projected at the Landmark Midtown Cinema as part of the Atlanta Film Festival.

It was shot on the HVX200.

In this era of DSLR filmmaking, it was very cool to see the HVX used for a narrative feature that looked this good in the theater. I know that the HVX is being used extensively in TV and in filmmaking, but these days I'm seeing it less and less.

In "Death," a lens adapter was used, but I got the impression that the stock lens was capturing a lot of the action. Part of the look of the film had to be achieved through smart lighting techniques and skilled post work. It is a tribute to the lasting power of the HVX.

Take a look at the trailer for the arty and, dare I say, kinky little feature here: THE LITTLE DEATH

I'll have an interview with the filmmaker up next week on my blog: DailyFilmFix.com | Feeding your Movie Addiction...
