Many may know that short already, still I want to share in this nice new portal.
Last year's spring I decided to make a third part of my short-film series "sad lonely lucas", improving from a film made by one person to a little film with a crew and also additional actors. Goal was to take the little 550D/T2i out in the night, putting it to the extreme.

ML was a great help getting correct focus with the peaking, also framing it right for a cinemascope-crop. Another essential feature were Histogram and Zebra. I wish FPS-Override where available that time :)

Lens-wise, I used of course as fast lenses as I could possibly get, still we shot much on my Tokina wideangle-zoom with an aperture of only f/2.8.

Enjoy.

Great work! I'm also a huge fan of ultra-wide shots, so I really enjoyed it :)

Hi Dirk,

damit die nicht denken, dass wir hier Blödsinn machen, antworte ich mal auf englisch :)

Yep, sadly there are people who live in such situations. Anyway, I think many of those are lonely because they "want" to, this is what I wanted to say: it's always a bit your fault, don't expect that everything change's when you do nothing about it/when you meet a special someone (stated to the guys who think if they find/get THAT girl everything might change; it doesn't). Of course only my opinion - no one makes these movies without a personal experience with this :)

And no, I don't really like the TV-Tower. It's so big and white, it always distracts the view. And never fits in properly. And ... I don't know, I don't like it (my Girlfriend loves it! she doesn't understand my opinion here :D)

Thanks for the kind words, I'll let the camera-guys know :)
