I LOVE YOU MOST!
I LOVE YOU MOST!
The Trip is coming along very slowly… I’ve got most of my crew locked down. Really excited about that.
Casting is proving to be the hard part. I have only one role filled so far and that’s of girl in boot, which is going to be played by my beautiful muse and girlfriend. However, I just can’t seem to narrow down the list of applicants that have applied for the two lead roles. There’s about forty of them. I’m starting to think that maybe it’s because I don’t have a solid vision of the characters in my head. I need to think about that a bit more…
In the meantime, I’ll step back for a bit and draw up the shotlist before sitting down again and shortlisting applicants.
Anyway. I’m hoping to hold auditions mid next week. We’ll see how that goes.
I miss you.
The seven images I just posted are all good examples of rule #1. I know, I was only supposed to put up one to demonstrate, but I started finding heaps of really good ones and couldn’t help myself. As you can see, the images have a lot of depth to them through the use of shallow depth of field and the separate foregrounds, midgrounds and backgrounds. This depth almost gives the image a voyeuristic quality that I quite admire.
And yes, it is painstakingly obvious that I am heavily influenced by Christopher Doyle’s cinematography in Wong Kar Wai movies… What of it?!
I recently bought a Pentax ME Super with a 50mm f/2.0 and am about to purchase some Superia 1600.
As a test course for the camera, I’m planning on creating a series of photos that are linked together by three common “rules”…
1) The photo must utilise a shallow depth-of-field with the subject placed in the midground and the shot partly obscured by something in the foreground. The background must be separate from the subject. (I’ll try to find a photo to demonstrate what I mean…)
2) There can be no humans or animals anywhere in the photograph.
3) The subject must have some shade of blue on it.
Yeah, I know, the rules are pretty arbitrary… but let’s see how they turn out anyway.
This photo was the catalyst for “The Trip” and will also be the opening shot of the film.
“The Trip” is the thesis film I’m working on as a part of my studies at SFS.
Synopsis: Danny has had a big night out. He just wants to get home and into his warm, comfy bed. Unfortunately for him, the trip won’t be so easy…
