28 Jul For a Good Time
We’ve recently wrapped production on a new short film with Aemilia Scott, titled For a Good Time. Aemilia wrote and directed last year’s Best If Used By, which I also shot. BIUB has been tearing up the festival circuit since its release, most recently screening at the Madrid International Film Festival where I received a nomination for Best Cinematography. The new short was shot almost entirely with available light and I found it really interesting to have so little control over the lighting. We did somehow manage to stage almost every exterior scene with gorgeous back lit sunshine. I chose to leave my Cookes at home on this project and utilized all stills glass. On the wide masters I used my Canon 17 & 24mm Tilt/Shifts and for the remainder we worked with Leica R series Primes and Zooms. Though the mechanics of the stills lenses were not as nice as cine lenses, I think the look speaks for itself.
