The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Bittersweet Lemons

Screen grab from the film Bittersweet Lemons.

I finally put the finishing touches on a short film I made for Directing class.

It was great working with all the people involved and learning the process of film making.

We shot it on a Lumix DSLR at 4k and recorded sound with a Zoom H4N.

Bittersweet Lemons is a short film about how caring for a sick lemon tree helped to heal a broken relationship.

Very, very nice! I have to say the video and audio quality was excellent. I grew up in the '80s when this quality was rare on even most network tv. I'm excited that you two have the tools and the talent(!) to create such fine work. I'm looking forward to more!
