Narrative Short: Links & Pins

Narrative short produced by VOM Productions in Summer 2012, in association with the San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking. Full discussion after the jump.

Cinematography by Maria Escala Ribas, written and directed by Randy Hall. Starring Kevin Hayden and Zoë Winter. Original score by Ransom Rath. Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 24-105mm f/4 USM lens. Dialog was recorded onto a Marantz PMD-660 with a Røde NTG-2 shotgun/boompole and a Sennheiser G2 wireless. Shot over three days and nights entirely on location in Sonoma County, Sebastopol, and Santa Rosa.

What Randy had to say about the project
The Summer of 2012 in Sonoma County was fabulous. Great light, but most of the film is shot at night or at dusk.

My biggest challenge was that Woody Allen was filming Blue Jasmine in San Francisco at the time, which prevented me from getting a picture car (a police car) for my film. So, when we arrived at that day, we ended up faking it together using red and blue party gels over studio lights! My first experience with outdoor lighting of a scene at night. Don’t forget the generators!
