We like to highlight things a little different and with everything that has been happening, we would like to get back to some movie/media talk. It provides a good distraction and something that can be engaging while still being relevant in its goal.
This time around I would like to highlight an upcoming film that definitely looks interesting. It was done on a micro-budget which is always an interesting look. It is Anna Rose Holmer's narrative directorial debut and it is supposed to be something to behold. The trailer for it definitely lends to it as something outside the typical studio look. The film has been a darling on the festival circuit and has definitely drawn some high praise.
Filmmaker Magazine sat down with Paul Yee, the Cinematographer of the film, and he spoke at length about the process. It was also Yee's first Narrative feature and the largest unit they used was an M18.
We all know that on Microbudget films, you have to do whatever needs to be done to make it work. They were able to craft a very interesting looking film despite the drawbacks of budget. It goes to show that sometimes even with a small budget, with some knowledge, you can do wonders. The feature was shot on the Amira with older Cooke S2 lenses for the price consciousness. They go in-depth about the interesting style choices that are involved in the film.
