Forgotten Word was a very interesting short film to shoot. We were lucky to have secured some inspiring locations such as Manchester Cathedral and the skybar at the Hampton by Hilton that provided us with panoramic views across the city. 

Because we were shooing on live locations that we had for limited time we opted to shoot with a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with a set of Meike Cine Primes. This camera and lens combo is ultra light and allowed us to perform quick unit moves across the city.

We supplemented this with an ultra lightweight lighting package to allow us to run off battery power on location. We achieved this using a combo of Nanlite Forza and Pavotube lights.
