Having the opportunity to work on Rubidium Wu's The Silent City I've become very
intrigued inspired by all the great independent film makers out there who are taking full advantage of accessible technologies like the Canon 5D Mark II. The latest of which, Arrowhead: Signal, by writer/directed Jesse O'Brien was made for a ballpark figure of 600 bucks. If you don't include the T4i, 5DMII setup and 3 years of invested time they appear to have used. But still how many of us have a kick ass, video capable DSLR ready to rock? When not doing client work I find myself sitting on the couch while my 5D Mark III sits on it's shelf and I can't help but watch shorts like this and think, "How much potential am I wasting?"... How much potential are you wasting?
