What was planned to be a pleasant BBQ turned out to an unexpected QQC.
Deep Red is my first attempt to film something with a little bit of story. More than a short film it is just a sequence. I wanted to start with something really small to learn from my mistakes. Actually I made a lot of them and hopefully I won’t make the same mistakes next time :).
Shot in a couple of hours with a Canon 550d/T2i, the kit lens and an old Pentacon 50mm f1.8. I used three desktop lamps for the illumiation. The music is from Final Fantasy X (To Zanarkand) by Nobuo Uematsu.
Christopher Rivera and Stephanie Ford (workmates of mine) are the actors in Deep Red and they play a famous chess game played in Rome in 1619 between Gioachino Greco and an unidentified person.
Any comments or questions are more than welcome.
Thanks for watching.
I bought the other day an old lens for my canon 550d (Pentacon auto 50mm f1.8). During a lunch with some of my workmates I shot some footage with it and I have to say I’m very pleased with the performance of this old lens. Enjoy it in glorious HD!
