Case Study: LIKE CRAZY shot with the Canon 7D DSLR

"Most people have no idea what it was shot on or care.  Storytelling isn't about resolution or compression."

Our friends at HD Magazine have posted an excellent article discussing the merits of shooting the Sundance Film Festival hit drama LIKE CRAZY on a simple HDSLR camera (Canon 7D).   Directed by the very talented Drake Doremus, and shot by DP John Guleserian, this indie feature was acquired by Paramount Pictures in the realm of $4 million.  This is just another example of new technology allowing filmmakers to tell their story, and not letting budget constraints prevent them from making a great movie.  Make sure to listen to the audio interview from Guleserian, then get back to writing your screenplay.
