"The Dead Trap" | My Rode Reel 2019

Watch the Behind The Scenes:

I have invested for the very first time on Rode Video Mic ME-L connected to my iPhone XR where entire shoot was done with both this equipment. I do not have the facility of a DSLR Digital Camera as this is my first attempt in shooting a short film. Me and my excellent team, we were able to present My Rode Reel 2019 entitled "THE DEAD TRAP" taken entirely in the hotel room within 24 hours upon obtaining official approval.Some of the shots especially the murder scene in the room we practically had to find a way to show the victim (female cast) hanging from above the ceiling but we took the shots from the window an angle where she was seated and we made it appear as if she was hanging by highlighting her foot that was hanging.
We took some stills and videos as we were doing the shoot, it was a new experience and we were amazed seeing ourself as professional film makers and our cast before the camera for the very first time in their life made it even more exciting as we really had such fun and learnt so much on how to monuevre the Rode Video Mic ME-L during each scenes. My profession as a Music Composer helped me gel everything as I arranged sound samples for each scene in the best possible way to bring my short film to life.We as a team are very proud of our achievement and once again the drive or motivation came from ...MY RODE REEL 2019. Many thanks for inspiring new film makers. BRAVO!
