"Arrhythmia" (2007)


Action short by  Liberty Belle Productions
Panasonic HVX-200 + P & S Technics 35mm adapter
Director Michelle O'Keefe
Director of Photography Tim Otholt



"For a young high school student, an innocent motorcycle ride turns into a run for life-or-death. "


"Arrhythmia" was shot on the Panasonic HVX200 in 35mm 16:9, using the P & S Technics mini-35 adapter and Zeiss Mark III Superspeeds 35mm lenses (T1.4).  Due to budget concerns, pickup shots were shot without the mini-35mm adapter.  Hopefully no one will notice.

The feel of the movie is very Terminator 2-esque.  Tungsten balanced nightime shooting with HMIs acting as moonlight, with backlights as much as a full stop over key, and lots of contrast.



My apologies in advance, but this movie is still in post production.  These initial screen shots were lifted from a (rather poor) DVD of the movie.
