The main character is a janitor, whose life is kind of mundane. At least, that's what it seems like, but as the story develops, many layers of interesting happenings are revealed. Scenes were shot in both 24 and 30fps, and they used Canon L Series prime lenses, using great depth of field. Lenses used in the making were:
- EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM
- EF 35mm f/1.4L USM
- EF 50mm f / 1.2L USM
- EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM
- EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Check out the behind the scenes trailer for the short film below to see how Shane and his team achieved the unique camera angles and expressive lighting setups that helped tell the story.
The next video shows how the opening scenes (The Janitor) were shot with the 5D Mark II.
And then we see how the Vietnam sequence was shot—a very interesting lighting setup that turns Lake Piru, California (a nice camping and fishing spot) into wartorn Vietnam.
The last video shows how the Carnival sequence was shot. Very inspiring.
