Behind the scenes...
I shot this with a 5D Mark III and used a 100mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4 and a 16-35 2.8. I also used a Rode Video Mic Pro to capture my audio.

Unfortunately my files corrupted and prevented the export to YouTube. So, I played the Project with a demo screen capture software to try and get something usable without starting from scratch!
