Father Mother Daughter Son - Filmed in Villa Rica, Georgia, at the Hillcrest Cemetery

In Villa Rica, Georgia, there is a small cemetery. The graves date back to the 17th century. Some of the oldest graves at Hillcrest Cemetery belong to Cherokee Native Americans. Among the graves, too, are soldiers of the failed Confederacy. It was a cold, windy, cloudy day. Perhaps that was appropriate for the melancholy I felt as I walked among the dead. For here lie fathers, mothers, daughters, and sons.

Filmed with a Canon 5D Mark II at 24 fps native. Some of the moving shots were filmed with the aid of a Cinevate Atlas 30 LTS slider. Edited in FCP. The clips were ingested with the new Canon EOS Movie Plugin-E1.
