A few of my favorite things in the production bag below with links.
The set of lens used in the For Michelle film on the RED Dragon Cinema camera consisted of ROKINON.
Some of the telephoto shots and the scene where Brett Cornell gets beat down was we used the Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS-II.
TASCAM – Great audio product used in conjunction with Sennheiser mics to provide great quality once used correctly. We also linked Sennheiser mic directly to the RED digital cinema camera. However for additional audio the TASCAM-DR 100mkII came in great. In fact I use it on all of the shoots today as a great back up. I attach it to the RED field plate on the camera. For the RED camera we used the A-Box to attach the Sennheiser mics directly to the camera for one of the audio feeds, this way we have a sound track to sync the TASCAM wave files to in the edit.
If you’d like to look into getting the A-Box, Wooden camera is the place for that. I’ve place the link below also. Another thing to mention is the V mounted battery packs for they really come in handy during the shoot. You can get them at Wooden Camera too. For the off locations shoots such as when we were shooting in the woods.
The accident scene in the film FM certainly need external power. We didn’t want to bring a generator out there for that. However when I do use one its the Ryobi. So the Blue Shape batteries each one would give me about 30 minutes on the run time. Some day I’ll get slightly longer life out of it around 45minutes. If you can afford it, then get the bigger V-mount Blueshape battery set as listed below.
One more item I would like to mention is the Cinebag. Personally I find it a bit heavy, but I love it for is durability and compartment design. For that I over look the weight and would say its worth the purchase.
