In this behind the scenes video, you will see the tips and tricks of the trade including set design, prop design, lighting, and sound. We used Sony's A7S Mark ii which was especially helpful in our dark set. For sound we used the Rode Video Mic and the Rode NT1 Cardioid Condenser. For lighting, we used a variety of techniques. Mostly a lightbulb with a china ball as a diffuser. This created a soft glow. The set was constructed in a storage room. We did this in under $50 using thrift stores and friends to help us.
