Hi al!! Between November & December 2020 and March 2021 I had the pleasure of shooting my first mini series as a cinematographer, a docudrama (if that is a word) for the Spanish national broadcaster called Edelweiss. It is 4 episodes x 35 minutes each, we shot the documentary bits for 4 weeks around Spain in November and December 2020 with a team of 6 people and the drama bits in March 2021 for 1 week with a small size unit (kind of short-film size). The budget was €350K and what attracted me to the project was the story since it is about the biggest child sexual trafficking case in Spain, which happened a few decades ago. It was an interesting production to work on, with a lot of challenges and a lot of things to think about after wrapping it up, good things and bad things as well. The most important thing is that I learnt a lot about how to be efficient blocking and lighting wise and a lot more about management (and I mean A LOT MORE!!) Here is the trailer (which doesn't show much..) and the full mini series with English subtitles if you want to watch it.

Bridge Of Spies Trailer IMDB Link http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3682448/ "During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers." Director Steven Spielberg Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski Written by the Coen Brothers and Matt Charman, Spielberg brings us a great movie where he shows, again, the reasons why he is one of the greatest storytellers nowadays. The first act of the movie could be considered a little bit slow in the way that it is kind of vague but once the movie enters the second act, it finds the flow. I personally think that the whole movie is perfect as I like "lawyers" movies a lot and it reminded me a bit of "Zodiac", directed by David Fincher in its tone. The actors are absolutely great as in every single movie that Spielberg has directed and Kaminski shines completely through Tom Hanks' journey. Regarding Bridge Of Spies' cinematography, I have to say that some moments in the movie were very similar to "J. Edgard", photographed by Tom Stern and as I enjoyed that movie loads, it was something extra to add to the visual enjoyment! :) Ah! I almost forgot, the Hawks have not been used as well as Kaminski used them in this movie ever. Amazing use of the wide lenses in some moments. It was a pity not to see David Devlin's name on the credits though! :) Have a good day.
