Aaron Peterson directed 2021 WMFF feature “24 Leeches”, a short film in which his son narrates a family trip to the Islands of Ontario, Canada. We asked him a few questions, see our Q&A conversation below:
What is in your gear bag/kit?
I’m on Sony full frame and Sony glass. We are a hybrid photo/video studio so need to cover all our basis and Sony gets that done for us. 24 leeches was filmed with the A9 mirrorless, which is not considered a serious video camera. Use the tools you have. Keep it simple.
What item can you not live without?
A headlamp. If you’re in that sweet spot of filmmaking you’ll either start or end in the dark.
