Here's the project in a nutshell: Nine cities across Canada, eight Lomo Prime lenses, seven days per city, six Nikkon photo lenses, five hard drives, four thousand miles, three months of shooting, two principal actors, one Brevis35.
The story :
Le Divan du Monde (tentatively in English : Everybody's Couch...) is a romantic comedy about a francophone couple that meet in Vancouver and travel across the country together. ZOÉ decides to hitchhike home to Summerside (PEI, Canada) after her relationship with an Anglophone from Yellowknife turns sour. With little money, she relies on the generosity of strangers to help her out along the way, and on her lucky star to stay out of trouble. In Vancouver, she stays with ALEX, an uprooted and anglicized francophone, who on a whim decides to drop everything and join her on this journey. Alex is a romantic who believes he?s found his soul mate. From couch to couch, city to city, Alex and Zoé delve into the lives of the people they meet along the way, as they learn about each other and themselves.
We decided to use the Brevis 35 with the EX1 (now working with the new EX1 FIX - thanks Denis!) http://www.cinevate.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=90&osCsid=9b3d392ce4243770001d23b1fe822344
I'll be posting some stills from the movie and maybe some clips soon!
Here's are a few pics from the behind the scene.
