July 2017

From a quick meeting at a pub to the big screens at Hollywood's Chinese Theater, this project marks the 2nd time working with Bilal. With our budget paid for entirely out of pocket, we knew we couldn't hire a crew to run a full production package. We focused instead on finding great locations, character blocking, framing, and post production. Since we had a tight 2.5 day schedule, we chose the RED for it's ability to capture an incredible amount of detail in all lighting situations while still allowing us to maintain a fast paced shooting schedule. Using all available light, a small bounce board, and Lomo Anamorphic lenses gave us that perfect, retro 80's style look that tied the whole film together. One of my favorite projects so far!
