Canon XHA1: "Oversold" Independent Short

Again, in the vein of supporting independent filmmakers and not necessarily knowing all that much about what's going on or the final quality of the project, I thought I would mention another project I have come across in my travels. Indie filmmakers do need all the support they can get, as we know.

This project is of relevance in that it was shot entirely on the Canon XHA1. From what I can tell, there is not the apparent use of an adapter. Dynamic focus shots in the teaser / promo piece tend to be more of the "everything out of focus to everything in focus" rather than the rack focus variety. So I do believe we're seeing the stock lens at work most of the time (and they did achieve some moderately shallow depth in some shots by backing out and zooming in).

So anyway, here is the OFFICIAL SITE for OVERSOLD.

And below, you'll see embedded a promo piece on Vimeo.

Apparently the film stars a retired adult film actress and is biblically related. Let's wish them good fortune with this one. For everyone considering the virtues of these various cameras, they're doing us all a favor by putting their time and money where their mouth is and using the camera in a committed context.


A complete version of the film's trailer has since been completed. It can be viewed below.
