This is the behind the scenes documentary about the Panasonic GH3 “Genesis” short film shoot. This BTS production was shot on the Panasonic GH2 Camera using the 14-140mm OIS Micro Four Thirds lens. The night time shots in downtown Los Angeles were shot on Philip’s Voigtlander Nokton 25mm F0.95, which is a beautiful lens. It was mostly handheld and using a Zacuto DSLR baseplate with small Zamerican arm as a grip handle. Other shots were using a Manfrotto mono pod. The goal for this shoot was to be very mobile and I had to pre-empt a lot of the action that I needed to cover, so minimal rigging, small and light was the best option.
The audio was captured using a Rode Video mic pro mounted on the top of the GH2. This mic was the perfect choice for this job as I had no sound operator and the quality from this mic was fantastic for this run n gun shoot.
Edited in Final Cut Pro 7 and graded with Magic Bullet Colorista II.
Thanks to Mark Brandis at ism studios for the sound mix.
