Wow, for those who really MUST know everything that was used on a film.


The Camera:
We shot on an Eclair NPR. It's a pretty compact camera, pretty quiet if you're not shooting in a small room with a shotgun microphone(which we did frequently).

The Film:
  • All of it was shot on Kodak Vision 500, a very high-speed film. Too bad the actual company who sells it is not so speedy processing account applications. The film cost $135 per 400foot roll, and that gets you about 11.5 minutes at 24 frames per second, which is regular speed for film.
The Sound:
  • We had an Audio Technica 835b shotgun microphone. Very sensitive. Too sensitive sometimes. We used a Mackie 1402VLZ Pro Mixer. I recommend it highly. We recorded all the sound onto a full-sized Panasonic DAT machine. We had a portable DAT, but didn't use it, as it didn't show levels very well.
The Lights: (Or lackof)
  • We had a 1000watt Lowel DP light that went from flood to spot. Probably our most-used light. We had a 1000watt Lowel Soft Box that worked well. We had some Chinese Lanterns that we lit with bulbs ranging from 100 to 250watt. Other than that, all we had were some construction lights and creativity.
