This video made me appreciate all the things that I once critiqued about the film. Nice job, Milad.
great looking piece but... story-wise I dunno. But line up names like Doyle and Ai Weiwei and it's kind of impossible to ignore.
Beautiful! I hope the next step in the camera wars is driving the prices down.
What I loved about having the 5D as a B camera was the freedom to try "throwaway" shots like the one up on the girders. When I shoot my feature, I'm definitely deputizing a trusty young DSLR user to roll B Camera in particularly adverse locations.
Hi Joyce, audio is always a tough part of a one person crew. You may want to try two systems: an onboard boom mic on your DSLR and a lav recording to a separate recorder. Hopefully between the two you can get what you need. I'm sure you do this already, but look for ways to make sure the lav is as clear as possible. Lastly, look for ways to have your subject remain static - even if you can create motion by having the camera move instead.
Yeah, that's the downside of stealing shots - with certain locations you will eventually need permission for either broadcast or distribution. A friend of mine told me of a feature that she produced in which, though stealing shots in Manhattan, they had a PA to either side of the frame signing all of the 'extras' to releases.if you're worried about distribution and rights, etc., though, you probably aren't going to produce as a One Man Band.
As to the specifics of your question, different locales have different laws regarding that type of stuff. Your best bet is making something so amazing that the distribution partner or a third party will pony up after the fact to pay for whatever rights you need to be able to use your footage.
