Strongman - Rode reel Short film competition

Watch the Behind The Scenes:

An Ode to Cecil B. De Mille and the great historical films of the 1950' n 60's like the "Ten commandments", In this sad tail we see Samson meet his fate on his feet. Shot with older Sony CCD technology to capture the low light, Film in a theatre and using local talent of the Maitland Repertory, this short film tries to re-creat the feel of the 1950 and 60's filming technique. A single RODE video mic attached to a long cable and suspended about the actors on a 3 meter painter pole, allowed us to get extreme wide shot with good quality Dialogue. we had one fixed camera position while the other roamed around looking for the usual angels or close up shot.
