This is my contribution to Vimeo Weekend Challenge: Extreme Shots.
For this Challenge, let’s take a look at the ends of the shot spectrum: Extreme Wide Shots (EWS) and Extreme Close Ups (ECU). As we’ve mentioned before, shot variety makes for a more interesting story. In most cases, if your entire video consists of one single shot, your audience won’t stay engaged.
The video I posted before, Return of the Sun, is the last times winner of the Extreme Shots challenge.
My video is shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, 24-105 lens and a cheap, broken, Velbon tripod that I’ve had since I bought my first DSLR a Canon 350D when it was released about 8 years ago. So for about 70 bucks the Velbon tripod has served me well.
