This was my favorite film from the 2015 season of Christmas Barrel. We had a very limited crew on this one, and were lucky that friends let us shoot late into the night in their living room. We shot on my Sony FS700 with my Odyssey 7Q, and lit with my LED fresnels. The moving shots were done using my 4-foot old-school speed rail slider. We didn’t have a jib, so for the last shot that pulls away from the plate at the end from a bird’s eye angle, we had to just hold the camera and slider dolly against the rails that we had oriented vertically. Mike took care of all the art, directing, and most of the writing. We both handled some of the voices.
