Actually, I want to shoot mainly skies and the sea. It's for a non-narrative
film I am making at the moment.
I want to transmit an abstract idea of storm. I intend to modify speeds
(either increasing or decreasing) in final cut.
I am in Portugal, so even in winter the days are quite bright in spite of
I think I will shoot over several weekends - I am going to the seaside, to
a place which is known for being usually cloudy and windy.
The problem is less the rolls than the price for the camera. As rental fees
are quite high in Portugal I am thinking in buying a camera maybe on e-bay.
Thanks for all the suggestions I received until now!
