If you've been following planet5D at all, you know I'm a huge fan of Shane Hurlbut and the Hurlbut Visuals team – and Shane tweeted this “Act of Valor” (IMDB) featurette this morning about shooting with LIVE AMMO, and if this doesn't get your blood moving, I don't know what will!
If you haven't heard, “Act of Valor” was primarily shot on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and is coming to theaters around the USA on Feb 17 – just 3 weeks from now! I can't wait to see the 5D2 up on the big screen again.
I still feel so blessed to have been able to even simulate just a tiny little bit of what it was like to film this movie when I was invited to the Letus and Hurlbut Visuals unveiling of the Master Cinema Series event. As you may recall, they had a ‘course' set up where we could follow 2 real Navy Seals with the ManCam unit filming as they re-enacted a capture of a terrorist in a dark building. It was a blast running down that hall filming with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and then watching the replay out in another room with the Seals. What a fun night that was! Take a few moments and read about the event.
