Production & Post-Production
Director/producer Alicia Brauns had a very personal story to tell about her father’s journey from holocaust survivor to well-known surgeon. The documentary-in-progress is entitled Mosaic of Life.

They had to build their camera package carefully so they chose Canon C300s supported by a fluid head and legs from Sachtler.
