I canÔÇÖt show you the final shot but we shot at the Thom Bar with a main talent and several extras…. The background I use hot lights lke source fours and HMIÔÇÖs to alow me to see the lighting as well as apply some blur if I want to.
The casting is being done by my long time casting director Stephanie Cohen (who also produces sometimes for me).(www) She casts in video for me because I like to see how well the talent can act…. After she completes her casting day, the shoot is upload to a website so that the AD and I can pick out selects.
Maybe IÔÇÖm too sensitive but when I see a movie in which the lighting is unreal I canÔÇÖt get into the story…. Sometimes I feel like we are doing a small movie and maybe we could if I swapped out my contax for an arri.
