Here are some of the Behind the Scenes photos!

An epic shoot on a really low budget; a lot of people helped us out in favors, providing us with equipment, time, and manpower.
Thanks to Erik Andersen of for the car mount;
it rained on the night of our chase scene so we didn’t get to use it; but hopefully will if there are pickups.
The Talbot twins made the whole underground party scene (and most of the shoot) work with pretty much only 4 PAR lights.
Can’t wait to see the final product in a few weeks!
Big thanks to all who have come out to help us, and for braving the cold on the last night of principal; our actress/star was visibly shivering at about 2-3am.
Other stuff the cast and crew braved: the rain on the first night of shoot,
the heat and stuffiness of the underground party scene (the walls were condensed with i-dunno-what).
Be sure to look out for the video! Some crazy stunts and VFX will be in there
(there might be a few more BTS shots from the 3rd day coming soon, I don’t have all my memory cards back yet).

2nd Year SFU Film is done!
This blogsite will be getting an overhaul as the backlog of work is beginning to clear up.
Well, if not an overhaul,  I’ll try to post more often, maybe even treat this like FB and do some sort of microblogging.

Description by Michelle Kee:

Hey there!

For some really odd reason, Vlad, Devan, Cedric and I decided to compete in the music video competition for The Break’s Winkipop. We’ve spent the last week and a half making it with a whole bunch of really awesome people and it’s … finally been uploaded. It’s kinda radical.

Photos

Hearing that Kiefer was using the RED One to shoot his fourth year film, I had to get on his set; and so I did on the last day of his shoot as grip and set photographer. One of the notable incidents was that the camera was close to being destroyed/damaged when the jib toppled over while on a dolly move when it ran over my feet.

Personal

For some really odd reason, Vlad, Devan, Cedric and I decided to compete in the music video competition for The Break’s Winkipop. One of the baddest, most fearsome dog in camp, Qundo can only be handled by a few dog trainers. A shot from the Halloween party organized by SFU Astronomy Club. I’m currently picking some photos for my portfolio.

Round-ups

I cam-assisted for D.O.P (Director of Photography) Felix Oltean on the Panasonic HVX300, and when the 5D2 had the 24fps update, I shot a short “news report” clip for Dylan in one of the later pickups. Hearing that Kiefer was using the RED One to shoot his fourth year film, I had to get on his set; and so I did on the last day of his shoot as grip and set photographer.
