Hi guys, Just wanted to share with ye all the trailer of a short-film I shot early in 2016, thanks to it I started shooting commercials. Directed by Daniel Corcoran, we shot Miah during 5 days in February 2016 in a town called Allihies in West Cork, Ireland. Everything was shot with natural and available light with an Epic Dragon from Panavision. We chose spherical Schneider Kreuznach Cine Xenon Vintage for the interiors and Lomo Anamorphics for the exteriors plus a couple of shots with Panavision Primos where I wanted to give the image a bit more of contrast. The way we decided to work was to shoot wide static shots and let the actors play within the frame, sometimes doing things off frame because both, Daniel and myself, love the way that spaces can tell a story too with some close ups IF the scene needed them. We both love Russian and Eastern European cinema and the work of Bela Tarr, Zvyagintsev, Paddy Considine, Ceylan and many others which I think that it shows in the short-film. The whole budget was around €5000 if I remember correctly and we were a total of 6 people including the actor :) so a super passion project! :) Without further ado, here you go, the trailer for the short-film and some png frames.

Hey guys, I've loved The Leftovers since season 1, but season 2 has just aired its second episode and I remain stunned by the cinematography, which is now done by Michael Grady (Todd McMullen for most of season 1). It's shot on the Alexa, but it looks SO distinct from everything and anything else I've seen shot on the Alexa, it feels like there's some kind of film grain added because there's a very real and vivid texture to the image, a real patina, the colors pop, but not in a harsh digital way, it doesn't look overly digital, it just really stands out, the lighting also looks beautiful, very colorful. I know they use Primos on this, but I wonder what anyone else think about this, any idea on the film grain or the look they're getting? I'm a film guy mainly, and the only stuff that impressed me on digital so far has been Skyfall, Prisoners, Sicario, A Most Violent Year (yet to see Selma, shot by Bradford Young as well), Drive, Elysium, The Social Network, Gone Girl, Her, Nightcrawler, The Revenant and The Leftovers.
