Behind The Scenes

The film was predominantly made using Canon DSLR cameras including the 5Dmk2 and 7D and a variety of Canon lenses, with a small section using the tiny but versatile Go-Pro camera system. The time-lapse sequences were filmed using a dolly and a Canon DSLR and the film was recorded mostly in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree National Park, California.

“No Regrets” was very much an “off the cuff project” all made while whilst working in California on another photography project. The filming was undertaken over a 3 day period and included several very late nights for the night footage and time-lapse sequences and also included a ticking off from the police for filming in a restricted port area, although after a brief explanation they were very accommodating and allowed us to get a sequence in the bag before moving us on!

    Having just tried the HD video capabilities on my Canon 500D with the Canon 24 -70 f2.8 lens in a low light night club type situation and failing miserably I can only take my hat off to the incredible quality of the work achieved in this film. The music works perfectly with the mood of the story and the colour and clarity of the photography is amazing.

    Well done on your award Karl, it’s fully deserved. It’s back to the instruction manual for me I’m afraid.

    Well done Karl!

    That’s why I love my Canon 5D. Your photography knowledge can directly improve the quality of your video work.

    Karl, congratulations on your award! I’ve been learning from you for over a year now with your DVD’s and website. As a videographer for over 15 years and now getting into still work as a hobby, the bridge is equally challenging. Being amazed by the video capabilities of these new DSLR’s, I ask your opinion of Canon vs Nikon for video, and also, can you us me what steadycam rig you used and the accessories in making “No Regrets”. I need to make a purchase within a month for an upcoming job so your input is really appreciated.

      Hi Jim,

      I’ve not used a Nikon since the FM2 many years ago so I can’t comment on the current models :) We didn’t use a steadycam on this film all the kit we used is listed at the end of the film and we will be releasing a “making of” soon!

  4. Awesome visual feast! Your talent continues to amaze me, Well done I can’t wait to see more!!!
