Barry Andersson recently produced a short film about an incident that happened on November 12, 2011 at 1701 Marmont Avenue. For this piece, he used Kessler gear to help tell his story.
Barry is also author of, “The DSLR Filmmaker’s Handbook: Real-World Production Techniques“.
We had a chance to catch up with Barry about his film.
Kessler University (KU): Tell me a little about yourself.
Barry Andersson (BA): I am an award-winning independent filmmaker. I started with live television video production and now have several acclaimed short films, a television pilot, commercials, and a DSLR feature-length film.
KU: Tell me a little more about the project.
BA: We wanted to create a short film aimed at independent filmmakers using equipment that most everyone could afford to buy or rent. We didn’t use a techno-cranes or high-end Hollywood equipment that most people around the world can’t get access too.
We wanted to keep our below the line costs reasonable and show exactly what you can produce on a relatively small budget. It was also a good excuse to really test out the new Canon 5D Mark III and see if we would recommend it over the 5D Mark II or what real filmmakers might feel about the latest camera.
KU: What was it like using KC gear?
BA: Awesome. I started using Kessler equipment back in 2010 and I am now the proud owner of 2 Cinesliders, a KC Complete, Revolution head, and several motors and Oracles.
KU: Why KC gear?
BA: We chose Kessler because of the extremely high quality equipment that is easy to use and affordable.
KU: What’s next from you?
BA: We are working on another television pilot as well as setting up our next feature film.
