Good friend of planet5D Shane Hurlbut has posted a behind the scenes video of the wonderful short that he and his Elite Team made called “The Last 3 Minutes” – which was shot on Canon EOS 5D Mark IIs.

Our thanks again to Shane and his crew! Oh, and in case you missed the short, here it is again and you can re-read our post with more info:

“The Last 3 Minutes” From Shane Hurlbut, ASC from Shane Hurlbut, ASC on Vimeo.

The main character in this short is William Turner, a janitor whose life seems mundane on the surface but as it develops, many interesting layers are revealed. We shot his boring existence in the present day at 24fps utilizing the new Canon 5D firmware.

As William's life unfolds from present day to the past, we shot with the Canon 5D at 30fps and pulled it in at 24fps to give it a slightly dreamy feel. The creamy Canon ‘L' series glass delivered the period look that we were hoping to achieve.

Director: Po Chan
Cinematographer and Executive Producer: Shane Hurlbut, ASC
