Took the crop sensor 550D out for a spin using some cheapo lenses I got from Ebay. Thought I’d test the undercranking available with ML 2.3 while I was at it. Primrose Hill and Camden Town. Shot the footage at the lowest light of the evening/ night just to push it to the limit 🙂
Seeing as we have completed our debut film project it is about time to post our Facebook Page for those who want to receive updates via FB. Especially useful as in the coming days / weeks, we will be uploading production photos from the filming of ‘The Tribunal‘. Please ‘Like’ and Share!
We recently wrote, filmed and produced a (two minute twenty seconds) film for the national Virgin Media Shorts film competition. Filmed on a budget of £200 and one Canon 550D over the course of four days, shooting over 600 shots and with only one actor (playing six roles). A nice little workout.
We are fans of films that are generous with the information conveyed through the photography, editing, design and sound and kept to that principle with this short piece. Hopefully the more you watch it the more you will see. We will be updating the website at www.DreamscapePictures.co.uk with updates from the production of the film, a make up application timelapse, a blooper reel (hopefully), notes on sound design, symbolism, special effects and more.
This is our first foray into releasing films in this format so we hope you find it illuminating…
You can watch the short film on the VMS website via this link: THE TRIBUNAL
After you watch the film, please share it, tweet it (using the tweet button under the video) so it gets spread far and wide, honest feedback is also always appreciated!

We continue to slave away for your entertainment!
Here is another fraction of a concept image made in the glorious Blender we are releasing to the public. Don’t worry, you have no chance of working out what this thing is 🙂
Making good progress. Camera and lens tests, CGI, compositing, test shoots with actors, drinking beer, script polishing, more beer, physical effects, arguing over remakes, framing for 2:39:1 and setting short, medium and long term plans for the project. Oh and having a beer. We are actually rather excited as you can probably tell!
*Excited about the project. Not about the beer.
