Experimental Meets High-Speed: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Phantom Miro-Shot SALIENCE
Filmmaker Paul Trillo (full disclosure: a fellow Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective member, and also my former roommate) used chromakey suits to novel effect in his music video Lonely, and now he's back with a new experimental short that finds clever uses for chromakey suits -- as well as a high-speed Phantom Miro camera. Check out SALIENCE, an experimental short:
Here's a brief look at the making-of, courtesy of our brand new No Film School YouTube channel. Our nifty intro animation is also, fittingly enough, courtesy Paul:
We are soft-launching our original video channel, where we'll be releasing new interviews, tutorials, and behind-the-scenes videos, so please head on over and subscribe on YouTube to get early access to new video content! And pardon the dust as we build -- again, it's a "soft launch."
The Phantom Miro Paul had didn't come with CineMags -- which nullifies much of the advantage of shooting with an untethered small camera -- but the idea is that the Miro allows for much more operator-friendly high-speed shooting at lower rental rates and with less of a support crew. There are some more details on the shoot courtesy our friends at AbelCine.
