Mobius was one of the first 4 official films shot on the Canon C300.
The film premiered on November 3rd, 2011 @Paramount Studios in Hollywood.
Directed by Vincent Laforet.
I edited Mobius on a generation 1 Mac Tower, 2.66 dual processor intel. 16 gigs of ram. GT120 and GT285 Nvidia cards.
This is the same dinosaur-ific tower I cut “The Last 3 Minutes” on for Shane Hurlbut. vimeo.com/10570139
Just upgraded to an 8-core 2.26 Mac Tower…Ahhhhhhh.
The main character in this short is William Turner, a janitor whose life seems mundane on the surface but as it develops, many interesting layers are revealed. We shot his boring existence in the present day at 24fps utilizing the new Canon 5D firmware.
As William’s life unfolds from present day to the past, we shot with the Canon 5D at 30fps and pulled it in at 24fps to give it a slightly dreamy feel. The creamy Canon ‘L’ series glass delivered the period look that we were hoping to achieve.
