This is a lens test featuring beautiful and talented actress Melissa Clements. Before the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour film challenge 2014 I wanted to see how the Kowa Anamorphic lens would operate so we performed this test with a 550D with its stock 50mm lens and the Kowa. I wanted to stay as low-profile as possible so I didn't use a rig, diopters (would need a matt box for diopters) nor a monitor. I wanted to shoot sci-fi styled short with no effects. Once we found the puple/white box at Canary Wharf (London) then we had a story that Melissa could use for showreel purposes.


This project has since evolved into a low budget film concept currently in development.
