“I have been a big fan of your blog over the last 6 months and it has been fun to see the evolution.
I am working on a series of 4 testimonial videos for Grande Cheese. We wanted to target some true East coast pizzerias and have them share their story as to why they purchase Grande cheese. I currently have two done and will wrap up the other two within the next few weeks. This was my first “large” scale project with the Canon 5D Mark 2 and we shot the footage before the manual firmware update arrived. We used Nikon lenses to gain aperture control and recorded audio on a separate camera and synced in post. We tried to keep a consistent 1/60 of shutter setting but relied on full auto in certain situations. We had a very small crew of two, the DP Tosh Omori and myself. One of the most exciting things was driving around Brooklyn in and SUV with the rear door open filming the pizza delivery truck out the back. We shot a restaurant a day and relied on a lot of time lapse to get sufficient b-roll. Overall the feedback has been great and I feel like we are on the cutting edge with the 5D. The picture quality is amazing and easily rivals cameras at significantly higher price points.”
