Hi everyone! My name is Michael Lau, and I work for Sepia Films, an independent film production company based in Vancouver and LA. As big fans of this community, we are so excited to tell you about our documentary KEEPERS OF THE MAGIC, which spotlights cinematographers such as Roger Deakins, John Seale, Gordon Willis, Vittorio Storaro, Bruno Delbonnel, and Philippe Rousselot. It is being released across the US on August 7th through VOD (US Satellite/Cable), IVoD (iTunes, Google Play, etc.) and Home Video (Amazon). KoTM is both an homage to the great films of our time and a personal exploration of the artists that created them. It features candid interviews and intimate insights into the work of these legendary cinematographers amongst others (including Directors George Miller and Sam Mendes) as they discuss their careers and most memorable movie moments. The film is the passion project of Vic Sarin, an eminent DP/Director in his own right, who wanted to celebrate the masters of this largely unsung art form. You can find more information here: https://www.imdb.com...2/?ref_=nv_sr_1 And a link to the trailer here: . Our goal is to give cinematographers the recognition that they seldom receive; but to do so, we need to reach as many people as possible. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions! Michael
Hi for all, Yesterday I watched Road to Perdition for learning purposes, and even it is not the first time for me to watch it, I was really impressed by every frame I watched, and enjoyed every minute of music composed. Conrad Hall a legendary Cinematographer who really nailed some movies including this one, in which I have some question for you professional guys, 1. there is a very nice montage " Road to Chicago" (You tube Link bellow) and I which if you guys can explain to me how he did this car scene (start at 26th second) ? is there any green screen and cut to a real shot ? it looks really realistic. 2. when we really need to use a vertigo shot ? is it just aesthetically pleasing or it has a certain meaning ? what is this meaning in this shot ( 1st attached image). 3. the third attached image is for you to enjoy some art.
