Digital Film

OFFFF 2011 Cincinnati, Opening Titles.

OFFF is a “post-digital culture festival”, a meeting place to host contemporary creation through an in depth program of conferences, workshops and performances by the most relevant artists of our time, according to the website.

This year for the OFFF event that took place in Cincinnati this October, Directors Vasava and Gregory Hervelin shot a wonderful short film for the opening titles of the conference. The film was shot on location in Barcelona using a Canon 5d MK II and edited by Hervelin, and features work being created by hand.

The cinematography, and production quality is outstanding. The actual titles don’t begin to appear until almost two full minutes into the film, but the subject matter and the look of the piece just pulls you in and grabs you. The irony of all of this is the OFFF is a “post-digital culture festival” yet the film was shot on a DSLR, and digitally edited and mastered.

Alone In New York

Italian film maker Giuseppe Vetrano shot and edited a two and a half-minute short film on his Canon 7D last winter in New York City. It is film making like this that really let you see where shooting with a DSLR can be quite successful. The cinematography is really nice and his editing skills help to compliment the overall theme of the movie. The film is visually built around the title, and the feeling of loneliness that you can find even when you are living in a city of 9 million people.
