Death of Superman Lives: Production Notes

Kevin Smith and Carl King

From 2013 – 2015, filmmaker Jon Schnepp hired me to work on his The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? Documentary. I did maybe a dozen shoots with them, and it was a really cool project.

I shot the following interviews with my Canon C100 and Canon 5D:

Kevin Smith
Wesley Strick
Steve Johnson
Pete Von Sholly
Grant Morrison
Rick Heinrichs
Tim Burgard
Colleen Atwood
Michael Anthony Jackson

Jon Peters was shot on Blackmagic 4K and Sony 4K AX100.

Lenses: Canon L-Series 24-105 and 16-35. A lot of the audio was recorded on Zoom H4n with Rode NTG2 or Sennheiser EW100. My location B-Roll was typically filmed with C100. I was often assisted by Amanda Burkman.

Other interviews — Tim Burton, etc. were filmed by Jon Schnepp & crew.
