Recently we created a short film with one of our friends and to our surprise, he was an amazing actor. Just goes to show that anyone you know could be willing to help and add a lot to your films.
Also this was our first shoot in night and in the rain. Which to my surprise went amazing. The only light other than lighting from the environment was a CN-160 LED light. Which was awesome. Thanks to it being battery powered was the whole reason we could shoot this film.
We also used just a hose from the location and pointed it up fairly high to create a rain look and then in post added some sound effects. To keep the equipment dry, I put ziplock bags over everything.
All in all, the short film seemed to have a bit more production value than our previous work. So just keep in mind that night shooting and rain can have awesome effects and aren't always a nightmare to work with. Anyways, Check out the Clip.
