Last Friday, I shot a little video aimed at YouTube.com. That's the cast, above.
The strange thing is, shooting that sort of piece is really all documentary production technique. I used a Canon GL1 with a little BeachTek adapter underneath it. A wireless body microphone and a clip on lavalier microphone were cabled into the BeachTek, one to the left channel and one to the right. Half was shot on a tripod, the rest following the actors around.
The thing is, fiction film is really documenting acting that happens in front of the camera, isn't it?
