Ramsom shot with the Ultra-light Steadicam Merlin and the Canon 5DmkII with two lenses: a 24mm and a 100mm. The editing was made with Final Cut and the grading with Color.

Marlon Torres, based in California not only excels as a Cinematographer but also as a Film Director. I had the chance to interview Marlon last week about his last film The Bridge and I have to say that it’s amazing to think that with only a $7,000 budget, Marlon and his team make this extraordinary 30 minutes movie. A Brilliant job!

Some time ago I was invited to shoot a „Behind the Scenes“. Knowing that things would be a bit rough, I asked myself: should I bring my trusted HV30 or give my daughter’s 550D a chance? I did not regret my decision. Filmed and edited using Canon 550D (T2i) and Final Cut Pro
