  1. I just finished my interview with Stephen Lighthill and a former student and overall I think it went fairly well. It was a very informal conversation and the main questions they asked were what my inspirations are, how I intended to pay for AFI, and why AFI over other filmschools. The entire interview was around 20 minutes long. On my way out I asked Stephen when we would know and he said by the end of the month.
  2. I saw this today and I really enjoyed the photography. Richardson did such a great job creating a film noir look inside the hospital, it really made things feel claustrophobic as the film went on. The heavy neutral toned top and back lighting paid off here again, as I think it did in The Good Shepherd for Richardson, for the interior scenes. It also really made the dream sequences stand out due to the sudden punch in color. Has anyone else seen it yet?
  3. Thank you. I used this commercial http://mattcfrank.com/videos/cancer-clinic and a recolor corrected version of http://mattcfrank.com/videos/5-conversations that feature. I have not had a chance to put the new color corrected version online yet. I thought it would be better to send in completed work, or at least large chunks of works rather than just cutting a beauty real together. I hope you hear soon.
  4. Well I take that back. I just got the call from them and I have an interview in early March. I am very excited.
  5. Well I have not heard back about getting an interview so far, but I know the calls are going out. I hope they are just hitting local people last. I am getting pretty nervous, but hopefully I hear something soon.
  6. Got my application in for fall 2010! I will be keeping my fingers crossed.
  7. Hello all. I am working on putting together my application materials for AFI fall 2010 and I am having some trouble deciding which two work examples I should include. If anyone has some time to kill would you mind going to http://www.mattcfrank.com/videos and letting me know which 2 videos you think are the best strictly from a cinematography perspective? Mindfield (the one with the guy holding the newspaper) is out since I was not the cinematographer on it. Thanks in advance for any input you can provide.
  8. Jayson this stuff looks great. Thanks for the journal.
  9. I really enjoyed it as well. I thought it looked great, the FX were perfect, and the camera movement really enhanced the action rather than obscuring it. I love flares too so any film with that many is going to be a winner in my book.
  10. I will try to make it. That is at the same time as the LAFCPUG supermeet also at MGM Grand. I am going to go to that since they have some great raffle prizes.
  11. Thanks for the tips guys. I am staying at Paris so I will just take the monorail out to the convention center. Good tips on packing water as I was planning on carrying a bag with me for swag and lit. I am planning on going to the promax party, are there any other events like that after hours?
  12. I will be there. It is my first NAB. Any tips besides wear comfortable shoes?
  13. Looks pretty sweet. I use an LTR-7 and I love its form factor and ergonomics so I am glad to see how similar this looks.
