'In The Woods'

In the Woods is a short film I shot for co-directors Cyana Madsen and Aaron Allard. As with all low-budget projects, the challenges were many. Part of the film takes place in a wooded area at night, so my challenge was to create a convincing nighttime look with no lights. We chose to shoot at dusk, when the sky was just starting to get light - creating an overall exposure that was about two stops under normal. And, as usual, I tried to create as much of the tone and look of the film in camera since I was shooting on a 5D. Here is a short clip and some frame grabs.
