Hey all, Just wanted to share an article about the making of my upcoming second feature to see what you all think. You can read it here. It's a little more production focused than cinematography but thought I wanted to put it here too. You can watch the trailer here: Thanks, Dan
My first ever short film just released, my first time being a cinematographer. Shot on a single Canon 550D (T2i) DSLR with most shots using a Canon 50mm f1.8 lens at f5.6 and some wide shots using the Canon 18-55mm f3.5 at f5.6. Lighting wise, I used 3 800 watt tungsten halogen red heads and 1 5600k LED on some medium-close up shots. I cut out shapes to use as cookies and shape the light with some flags. It was a zero budget film, all locations were due to good contacts in the local area. I'm no expert, never went to film school or anything, I just need some opinions from the masters. The critics seem to praise the cinematography more than the actual film but obviously there isn't much reason as to why other than that it looks pleasing to them and not look like a amateurly done flick. We're all young filmmakers aged 18-21, trying to do what we love doing in our spare time whilst having days jobs to pay the bills. Main film IMDB Featurette Website
Saw this and thought I would share: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/mediatechnologyandtelecoms/media/12082238/British-production-firms-spend-big-on-vintage-lenses-to-profit-from-period-drama-boom.html
Some of you are probably hip to this, but I figured it deserves posting (as does anything dealing with1980s anamorphic cinematography). "Black Angel" is a short film that screened in some cinemas before "The Empire Strikes Back" in the UK. Its negative was recently rediscovered. It was photographed in Scotland by Roger Pratt and directed by Roger Christian. It was a direct inspiration to the look and feel of Boorman's "Excalibur". The director's video introduction explains it all better than me. Anyway, it looks fantastic. Tristan
