Short Film On The Electric Coffee Company
Electric Coffee Company (FilmConvert Grade) from Edmond Terakopian on Vimeo.
Pleased to share my first short film shot entirely on the new Leica M (Type 240) camera. For the project at the Electric Coffee Company, I used the Leica 28mm Summicron ASPH, 35mm Summilux ASPH FLE and 50mm Noctilux ASPH, with some of the closeup shots being done with the aid of a Leica OUFRO macro adapter. Interview audio was done on a Roland R26 and Rode lavalier microphone. The reportage shots were all done using a Manfrotto 561BHDV video monopod and the interview was shot on a Gitzo video tripod. I also used a Lee RF75 filter holder and Lee ND filters for some shots.
I do hope you like the film, and if you have, would really appreciate if you could vote for it in the Film Convert competition; it’s just one click without registration needed. Thanks.
The editing was done on Apple’s FCP X with several shots being graded in Color by colourist Neil Patience. The final film then had it’s final grading done using Film Convert.

This picture is fast turning into a favourite street shot. It’s at an art gallery in Bruton Street, London.
I originally shot it for Instruction #27 Street Photography Now Project.

It was taken with a Leica M9 and a 50mm Summicron lens. The RAW image was processed in Aperture 3.0 and converted to B/W using Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2.
