Catch me [Short film]

Posted on September 26, 2012

This short was made for the 2012 Scandinavian Videomarathon contest, where you are to make a film withing 48 hours. You get a theme on a Friday at 12:00am, and the finished film has to be delivered at 12:00am on a Sunday. It’s really stressful, but you learn a lot! This years theme was punishment. I did also participate in 2009 with this film (the theme was scapegoat):

I shot the film with a Canon 5D mark ii, using my Canon 24-70mm f2.8L indoors and my Canon 24-105mm f4.0 outdoors. I also used my WalKam steadycam and some really cheap bulbs (Check them out here:
