Out of options, and out of time.

It was hard to tell how red everything was going to turn out while shooting. I think if I did it again I’d try and improve the color contrast a bit.

This is the first video I’ve shot with the Irix 45mm T1.5 cine lens on the Canon R5, and it was great to work with. I was able to get the most out of the fixed focal length by capturing some shots in 8K on the R5, then cropping in post.
