When I first got my DSLR camera, the Canon 550D, I also ordered an adapter for my dad’s old Praktika branded M42 lenses, a 35mm f/2.8 and a 135mm f/2.8. To try these out, and also learn about the video mode of my camera, I went out to our village’s local heritage open air museum, the Freilichtmuseum Molfsee, and made this short film set to music by Kevin MacLeod.
Canon 550D, 35mm, 135mm vintage lenses.
Shot mostly during one morning, with an additional visit to capture the front gate from the street. Originally filmed and edited 2011, re-graded with Davinci Resolve Lite in 2014.
