Hey Dan, I have a confession to make: I totally thought you were a troll or a bot when I first saw your comment and checked out some of your comments on other articles. But then I realized I actually agreed with some of your thoughts on OUATIH and inherent vice, so: great to hear from you, and drop me line with some of your work, would love to see it! Apologies for the confusion on the article title: to clarify, we did exactly what the title of the article says, and if you think that's insane you are entirely correct and can hear more about it from the cast and crew in the BTS in the credits of the film on Amazon/Apple! Good luck with your career as well!
Thanks for the question, Javier! Because we had to provide cameras for 4 units simultaneously (I worked 1st Unit with the 1st Unit DP while the 3 other unit directors handled their respective elements), we had to go with a7s ii's with Rokinon Cine lenses because that's what we could get access to in multiples!
Thanks for the note, KD! We were asked to drop a 750 word article and realized after 5000+ words that we'd need to scale back to ~2000, focus specifically on the writing and producing strategies that enabled a 24hr shoot, and then share the rest via our email list where we can do a deeper dive into the distribution hustle and other elements specifically. If you have specific questions about the filming in 24 hours, drop here and we can aim to respond in the email list! There's also a brief BTS at the end of the film on Amazon/Apple!
Hey, Zach! Because we needed 4 matching systems simultaneously, we had to go with a7s ii's. Thanks for the question, we're hoping to give more info on our email list
