Hi ML community...long time user, first time poster. First, let me thank all of you who have helped develop Magic Lantern. It has enabled me to do much more with my DSLR than I ever expected. I have been shooting short films and comedy videos for a couple years now, and I wanted to share a short series I created this past year of three one-minute films that are sci-fi/speculative fiction a la mini Black Mirror episodes. All were shot/edited with at least the following gear/software:

Canon 5D Mark III running v1.2.3 and Magic Lantern
Nikkor AIS 28mm f/2.8
Nikkor AIS 50mm f/1.2
Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition

Thank you for your attention, and enjoy!

amazing works man. i love all the three,
second one is best for its cinematography.

but on direction side, i love the third one.
you should develop the third film into an indie film.

I got an idea after watching you last film. I will PM you.

Thanks so much! Staying with the one-minute format is more difficult than I expected. I'll be happy to work on more extended stuff now.
