Ghost Town

Posted by Rudy Wilms



Shingle Creek Park offers glimpse of area’s citrus past with these historic Shingle Creek community’s pioneer homes and farms. Once the home of the Babb Family, who were born and raised in Kissimmee and owned citrus groves that still stand on this land today.

It gives people a chance to see what Florida really looked like. We love the park and are very happy we were able to film these beautiful old buildings. While we were filming it took us right back in time we call it ghost town but not because we saw any ghost but just because when you sit there and enjoy the beauty you can almost see the family chopping wood and picking citrus.

I shot this film with the Sony EX1 and  Letus35 Ultimate 35mm Film Lens Adapter  in 1920 x 1080 30p I color graded each shot with Adobe After Effects CS5 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.The sign with NO TRESPASSING we put the graffiti text Ghost Town in editing , I used Mocha for this.

I used the following lenses

▪24mm Nikon Nikkor f2 lens
▪35mm Nikon Nikkor f1.4 lens
▪50mm Nikon Nikkor f1.4 lens
▪85mm Nikon Nikkor f2 lens
