The Unforgiven - My Rode Reel 2019

Watch the Behind The Scenes:

Filmed over 3 days the shoot was very run-and-gun as I was only crew member other than the actors, trying to direct, shoot, and capture sound all together.
I designed and wrote the film with this challenge in mind however, relying on voice-over from the confessional (studio setup) to propel the story forward in the scenes that were shot on location. This took the pressure off recording sound on location with only one line of dialogue that was easily & quickly picked up thanks to the wireless Rode Filmmaker Kit avoiding the need to slate and sync the audio later.
The film was shot on the Panasonic GH5 and recorded into the Atomos Ninja V which is great combo for quality and ease of use.
