silent house claimed to be 88 minutes of continous footage.not really! silent house is one of the bigger films this year shot on a dslr.in fact it was shot on a canon 5d mark 2 with a redrock micro rig and small hd monitor.the primary lens used was a creamy zeiss cp2 28mm prime backed up by a 21mm prime. most of the movie was shot in shallow depth of field. now back to the continous 88 minutes of horrifying footage, a canon 5d has a 12 minute file record limit. so to hide the transition points.they moved in front of objects or whip panned to hide the edit.some of the scenes had several takes. so there is a covenfilm tidbit. thanks redrock micro and a shoutout to lucia from small hd.
