A beautiful film with a magical insight on the big "Little World" we live in.
Traveling with family, the little ones in particular opens up a perspective to the world view, that doesn't just have seven wonders but a million times more....
Last summer a trip with my family to the UK, driving from Inverness, the northern part of Scotland to Durdle Door, the southern side of England, every step of the way was a self discovery of this wonderous world through the eyes of my little boy.
Though the sights and sound around kept us constantly engaged, a glance at my son who was all immersed with abandon in the beauty of Mother Nature, tugged me to capture these moments as seen through his non prejudiced eyes.
It wasn't so easy; the odd timings, traveling with a toddler and an infant, nappy times, frequent feeding times, extra baggage, strollers..it was all tiresome and complicated than thought of.. but here i was happier than I could be, with them gifting me life lessons on the world is bring so much more inviting and captivating.....
Long after the euphoria of those traveling days are over, memories of those moments began to fade, I started to stitch all of this together, I'm truly overwhelmed once complete. Even when memories of the trip fade away, the impact would be embraced throughout his life..he would only learn to love and unite with the big "Little" world...
Presenting "Little World" - A beautiful film I made... With a magical insight on the big "Little World" we live in.
Along with the trip, my goal was to create visually stunning short film with great production quality with absolutely minimal equipment. So in terms of gear, I used easy and lightweight Sony A7S2 and A6500. These cameras has made life so much easier. I can stick almost any lens to it, shoot from day to night without worrying about low light performance. Great for run-and-gun all with clear and sharp images.
Using the above cameras and shooting in SLOG flat colour profile helped me in getting the best quality footage with maximum dynamic range any 8 bit camera can get. Using this flat Log files on colour grading also helped in achieving the best cinematic look that closely matches to any bigger production cameras. Some of the moving shots were done on a small 3 Axis gimbal with A6500 in continuous auto focus mode. The auto focus on A6500 was spot on tracking the moving objects so well even while recording videos.
The lenses used Sony Planar T* FE 50mm, Sony FE 70-200mm f/4, Sony ZEISS Sonnar T* FE 35mm and ZEISS Batis 25mm f/2. Majority of the filming was shot with the FE 50mm and the 35mm 2.8 which allowed me to get more film like look and shallow depth of field resulting in super sharp crisp images.
