It’s time to shoot the dramatic action scenes! We’ll show how we light the scenes, how we do creative shots with the camera in addition of many other important aspect of a indie film production. While filming the big action scenes we also go through how we make people disappear while moving the camera using the iFootage S1A3. With over 15 people on set, a lot of weapons, cars and costumes, good planning is essential. Even though I took to much responsibility in this project, affecting my creative process, nothing beats making films with eager friends 🙂

Here is the equipment we used to shoot the film:
Panasonic GH4 camera:
Aputure DEC Lens Regain (speedbooster and wireless focus puller):
Sigma 18-35mm lens:
Tamron 24-70mm lens:
Samyang 14mm lens:
Aputure Amaran LED lamp:

For sound recording, we used both a Sennheiser 416 shotgun microphone connected to a boom pole and two Sennheiser Evolution 100 wireless transmitter and receiver with MKe2 laviar microphones on the actors. Håvard, the master of sound, explained that the microphones that comes with the Evolution 100 is not that good. So that’s why he bought the MKe2 laviar microphones instead. The sound recorder he used is called Sound Devices 663.
We filmed the scenes with Panasonic GH4 (Cinelike D), Aputure DEC Lens Regain, Sigma 18-35mm, Tamron 24-70mm and Samyang 14mm. Graded with Filmconvert Pro.
This behind the scenes episode is filmed by Fredrik Winge and Thor Håkon Ulstad using a Sony A7s.
