or you can see in youtube also through this URL”

Ascendancy at 60 degree- this is my first shortfilm.through this shortfilm, the director is trying to show something symbolically by a simple story.

It completely shoot by canon 550d(DSLR).First we made a simple story from our theme.we didn’t make any planned script or storyboard. we took a lot of  shots in many angles.we did 270 shots

for this 5 minute shortfilm.the whole length of video files was about 1 hour.then we selected some of the scenes and edited. then we recreated the sounds because we couldn’t record the sound

during shooting because it needed an expensive SD card in the camera for the maximum picture quality and also we didn’t get a sound recording device .we also made some DIY camera equipments like

camera slider,DSLR shoulder rig,spider dolly,action rig.we could complete it at very low cost because camera is  mine and the actor and helpers were my cousins.
