  1. Hi Piers,

    I just wrote a topic on this forum about your stunning Never Grow Old.

    I really enjoyed the movie and your marvelous cinematography.

    Wish I knew something more about tech specs, 'cause I could not find anything on the web.

    Camera? Lenses?

    Would argue that's Alexa with anamorphics... maybe Panavision G or T Series?

    Really I'd appreciate some details. Anyways thanx and congratulations again.

  2. Vow thanx for the info. What can I say? Recently I read a review on the web - don't remember anymore where -, that was claiming the cinematography as bad and horrible. I tried to defend the work furiously - don't bear this kind of stupid stuff - but received only mockering. At least folks don't understand what they're looking at have a nice day you too
  3. Hi guys, take a look at Never Grow Old by Kavanagh/McGrail. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Never_Grow_Old_(film) I really liked it in tis gloomy, dark mood. Perfectly fitting this new 'auteur' post-western wave Someone claims the cinematography is really bad. In my opinion that's quiet good, on the contrary. McGrail used anamorphics but could not understand exactly which lenses. To me it looks like Panavision G or T Series. Could not find any tech specs on the web. Is there someone who can tell more details?
  4. The new Alexa Mini LF is the future, 😉 now present
  5. Hi guys, I really can't wait to see Villeneuve work about the Herbert's Dune chaotic stuff. The movie will be shot on anamorphics (maybe B series?), and some Panavision cameras, basing on the slate. Is anyone who knows which camera and lenses are they using? More details?
  6. Hey guys, I saw this movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQUAAJj8E_k ... well, what to say? That's the best picture I saw since a long, long time... Really a wonderful storytelling and a stunning cinematography... golden hour backlit with great DOF ... lomo and angenieux A2S absolutely well crafted. The plot starts with 13 minutes no spoken words, no voice over... only 'pure cinema'!!! And goes on with no banality at all... ​Really surprising tho see a movie like that nowadays. I recommend Appreciate to know more skills about it, if someone has info... thanx
  7. Yeah, I can compare The Beguiled to The Others in terms of low lit, but I guess The Beguiled is even more dark, with the characters often silhouetted and the environment somber and as intertwined with a sort of ash-light... I was not criticize that on the contrary to me it looked very beautiful. I guess that 'The Others' is less pushed to under-exposure: if you look at the characters faces it's such good exposed; 'The Beguiled' reveals - in some scenes - a way enough different to expose the characters: they are deeply overwhelmed by a dark haze
  8. Yeah I agree no need for that remake, but I was wondering about those under-exposures... to me looking very stylish... really dark, somber sequences... Do you like and first of all do you subscribe as cinematographers such so low lighting?
  9. Hi guys, i recently watched The Beguiled by Sofia Coppola, cinematographed by Philippe Le Sourd and was stunned by the large numbers of under-exposed frames and sequences. I loved that look especially in candle-lighted interior... Did you see the movie? What do you think about the stylish dark-somber look? I add some jpgs 'cause not so much time to grab some tiff from resolve ;-)
  10. Now guys, I saw this film 'Spoor' by Agnieszka Holland, Kasia Adamik, a polish production. I just saw this one on my LED TV and was impressed. I didn't know absolutely nothing about cinematography and so on of the feature but after a few minutes I swear I was ready to make a trial with myself about the tech specs. Now if anyone knows about the specs (don't go checking on internet ;-) )... What do think, guys, is it digital or 35mm? I grab some stills and attach them (usual issue with web quality, but take a glance and say what are thinking about).
  11. Stan Brakhage Hollis Frampton Robert Todd Paul Clipson are my favorites
  12. Yeah I guess Deakins will delight us with stunning smoking backlits and amazing silhouttes but Villeneuve to me is an overrated director, full of entirely branding topoi... the crisis of cinematic storytelling is definitely blown if the big budgets are only deliverable for shooting prequels or sequels... Here we have only an imagery of third hand, whereas the first Scott’s Blade Runner Scott was entirely indebted to the noir of the 30s and 50... it is not a good advertisement for cinema
