TRIBECA TALKS INDUSTRY - SHOOTING FILM ON A BUDGET

  • Release Year: 2011
  • Runtime: 90 minutes
  • Country: USA
One of the most important aspects of realizing your independent feature is determining the right look. How will you capture your images and bring the script to the screen in a meaningful, visual way? Filmmakers and cinematographers must consider many variables: mood of the story, production restrictions, post workflow, etc. Too often these important decisions are determined by the bottom line. However, many filmmakers are able to get the most out of their budgets while still shooting film. Join Michael Cuesta, writer/director of Roadie, producer Karin Chien, cinematographer Joaquin Baca-Asay, and others to learn how to create beautiful and cost-effective cinematic narratives on film. Sponsored by Kodak. |Read More

TRIBECA TALKS INDUSTRY - TALKING WITH PICTURES

  • Release Year: 2010
  • Runtime: 90 minutes
  • Country: USA
There are a million and one ways to tell a story, and twice as many stories to tell. Whether it's a comedy, romance, noir, horror, or sci-fi, the look of a film has a major role in determining and defining the tone. But does the visual style define genre or does genre dictate visual style? The collaboration of directors and cinematographers results in the ability to capture and convey narrative through the use of shadow, darkness, and light. The gasp of fear or a feeling of nostalgia can be achieved by a gel on a lens or the framing of the scene. Join writer/director Lee Isaac Chung (Lucky Life), writer/direct Jacob Tierney (The Trotsky), Jon Kilik (producer of Babel and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), cinematographers Nancy Schreiberand (Every Day) and Lance Acord (Where the Wild Things Are, Lost in Translation), and other TFF filmmakers and cinematographers in a discussion that proves there is always more than meets the eye. Moderated by Filmmaker Magazine's Brandon Harris. |Read More
