  1. You all know that I hate reels but after much consideration I ended up making one. Now, I have no idea whether is good or not but I do think that it is tailored to narrative work and maybe it would help somebody when cutting their reel! It took me 4 months to find the song I thought that represented me a bit and cutting the reel has been a great way to realise even more that I just want to shoot wonderful human stories instead of commercials. Also.. I just graduated from college (believe it or not ??)
  2. Last December I was super fortunate to work on a passion project / short-film about teenager's vulnerability with a director, Steve Kenny, that I had wanted to work with since I saw his previous short-films. Steve and myself had met last year and we instantly discovered that we liked the same types of cinema and stories, so with similar tastes we kept meeting from time to time to talk about different movies / tv series that we saw and we developed a friendship that led to this project that I lensed last year. We shot for one day in several locations around Dublin with the support of a wonderful production company called "Banjoman" that we had both worked with before. Through the different months that the project was imagined we talked about camera movement, framing, lighting and something super important, aspect ratio. When Steve sent the script to me I kept thinking that it would be great if we could see more of the actor while he was acting so he could emphasise the things that he is going through not only with the look but also with gestures since a teenager's body is changing constantly. These nuances in the body that I wanted to capture led me to a 1.66:1 aspect ratio because I also thought that it could be great if we could see a bit of the places where he is at. Regarding camera movement, we wanted to shoot the whole short-film on steadicam, with very fluid movements all the way through.. but on the recce our producer told us that due to budget issues and operator's availabilities (we had €6000 to make the whole project) we weren't going to be able to use steadicam. Even though we thought that steadicam was a fundamental part of the piece we quickly changed our plan and decided that we were going to keep the camera locked when the actor was not moving and hand-held when our character was going through some internal conflicts or was moving. On the lighting side I lit it in a very simple way, I just augmented the natural and available light that was there on the day but we were very lucky because the locations were fantastic and totally fit the story that we wanted to tell. And that's pretty much it, we shot on an Alexa Mini @3200ASA while underexposing by 2 or 3 stops sometimes and I think that I should have used less diffusion on the lens ? (I had a Glimmerglass 2 and a Black Diffusion FX 3 at all times) but I wanted to break the images even more. I asked our colour grader (Peter Oppersdorff from MPC in London) to keep the noise and he gave me even more so I'm in love with that. He was also super respectful with the images and they look like he didn't do anything at all (which I like!) Anyways! I hope you like it! ? Have a lovely day!

  4. Monos Alejandro Landes and Jasper Wolf bring us a really good story about a group of "guerrilleros" teens who have to make sure that a Doctor doesn't escape the camp they are based on. Really subtle and with powerful acting, the movie is one of those visual feasts because every single frame is wonderful. Go and watch it if you haven't yet! Have a lovely day.
  5. Last year I shot a short-film called Twin, directed by a really good friend of mine, Ciarán Dooley and funded by Screen Ireland. Twin Screen Ireland has a scheme called Short Stories, where 5 filmmakers get 20K and have to deliver a 5 minutes short-film and other 5 filmmakers get 50K and have to deliver a 10 minutes short-film. Ciarán submitted Twin's script to the 5 minutes scheme since it was meant to be a short story anyways... and he got the funding! So we got to shoot a great fun project! My main reference for Twin was a short-film called Corazon, directed by John Hillcoat and shot by Bradford Young. We shot over 2 days in Dublin and Wicklow and we had a couple of pick-up days for certain scenes. Lighting package was really minimal for the two days: 3 x M18, 1 x 1.2K, 3 x blondes, 2 x Sodium Vapor lamps and 1 x Skypanel S60. We used an Alexa Mini + Kowa Anamorphic lenses from Vast Valley and I shot at 3200ASA; I also underexposed everything by 2 stops. Hope you like it! Have a lovely day!
