Kevin’s been itching to experiment with the video feature of the 5D MarkII and this weekend we made our first collaboration film. We didn’t want to get over our heads so we kept the project simple, under 2mins, and based clips on photographs that happen to be moving images. Kevin has been playing with video and editing so it made this collaboration a breeze and fun learning process for us both. I find it really gratifying to envision a photograph then watch it come to life.
Having just watched The Assassination of Jesse James we were inspired by the imagery of that film and wanted to base our project around it. We used “Song for Jesse” by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis to help set the tone of what we now call, “The Coming of Fall.” See it in full HD on Vimeo.
Filmed in New York City’s Central Park
