Just a quick note to let you know that I joined host Paul Antico on the NeedCreative Podcast again this week. Really great show. We talked about the art and science of cinematography and then did a mini-workshop. I go into story scenarios and how I would light and lens them.
Some of the topics covered include: shooting handheld versus on a dolly or sticks; working with scopes versus your eye; the critical importance of a light meter; lighting with the newest digital cameras; 4K cameras; what we are using on Need for Speed; knowing the role of the DP; and “lightmares.” Then he put me on the spot with scenarios like shooting a fight scene between lovers in a parked car, a character’s journey through their past, and shooting a country music video on a porch.
