Discover Lancaster came to MAKE/ to create video content about Lancaster County Tourism. We filmed the videos with a split-screen idea in mind to show that Lancaster has something for everyone! We filmed at 19 locations throughout the county to show how versatile Lancaster is for visitors and for locals.

FROM THE DP, Steve Buckwalter

We filmed with the Arri Mini LF, and the Leitz Thalia prime lenses for their sharpness yet lovely texture that they bring. The shoot was a matter of moving quickly and trying to think carefully about matching shots to their shots in the split screen. But capturing the beauty of Lancaster County was made easier by the fact that Lancaster County is actually beautiful! So it really was just about camera placement and putting people in the right situations.
