Follow the links for more information on this video, which was shot by Martín Miguel Crespo of and

  1. Related forum discussion. There’s a link to a 30MB version of the movie. Martin wishes that the video compression on the D90 wasn’t so high

  2. He explained why the D90 for this production. The footage has a “cinema look” that is not possible to obtain using video cameras with small sensors.

  3. Shooting required only two days, but editing required 20. Editing software used were Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 and Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9. The Vegas software is able to edit HD clips much faster than Premiere.

  4. The Zoom H2 Handy Portable Stereo Recorder was used for audio recording.

  5. Martin was helpful in answering some questions I had for him. To synchronize the movie clips with audio tracks recorded with the Zoom H2, a clapperboard was used. For lighting, Martin discovered that fresnel lights helped ensure that there were no horizontal scrolling or flicker artifacts in the clips.

  6. Lenses used: Nikon 400mm f/2.8, Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8, Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF, Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G and Sigma 10-20mm (Nikon mount)
