    Strong DP/Editing Background
    Shoots wide for narrative. If it's shown on a big screen, rarely shoot longer than 25-27.
    Studio-style. Camera on track always. Dolly combined with a slider, sometimes a jib w/ rem head.
    My obsession is depth in the mis-en-scene. Inspired by the 70mm masters like Ron Fricke and David Lean and Kubrick, love grand epic vistas in large format. Love filmmakers who embrace this larger than life style of cinema which has sadly died (but is/will resurface soon).

  1. Right, I don't doubt there'll be plenty of artifice in the solution, that's always the case. Luckily there's no real plane wide interaction in the script so the only real parts where a solution is needed is in scenes where we see down the aisle such as the beginning, dinner and stuff. Most of it is a frontal twofer and singles. There is still the possibility I could get a couple hours to shoot plates on a bigger plane. I'm not very experienced with more complex VFX like extensions and matte paintings and stuff, and I happen to be in a market with limited need for these pros so most likely I'll have to source a vendor from a bigger latin market for something like this. Anyone have any experience with VFX houses in Latin America? I'd like to at least reach out to them and see what their ideas are. Any recommendations?
  2. Hey guys, long time lurker here but this is my first post. Feel free to move my post to the right forum if necessary So I got a script set in an airplane. It is a transcontinental flight, NY to Sao Paolo which are 90% of the time flying in big 767 or 777s (don't remember which one is which). These are usually in the 2-5-2 seating configuration I think. Big plane. And because of our budget we'll get to shoot in one of these: Bombardier CRJ 200 https://www.amaszonas.com/images/nuestra_flota/galeria/amaszonas_crj_200_34.jpg This is an indie short being made in Paraguay and we have to make this plane work. Now, I'm left to figure out if there is a way to shoot for a set extension in post where we can enlarge the plane and create that middle row. Ideally this would only be necessary on the wides and aisle looks but it's such a small plane I'm afraid it'll affect most shots in the aircraft. I also like to shoot wide so that won't help with hiding distances between seats, side to side and such. Would love to hear your ideas on this. Have any of you ever had to extend a small set like this? Ever shoot in planes, buses? Any tips? I appreciate it!
