Night Shoots & Philips Light Chain (Director’s version)

Ohna surrounded by RubbishWhat is it with all these night shoots? Hmm glamourous? I hope I don't become an expert in them because they are ever so exhausting - not so much the shooting but especially the prep. Having to scout through the night and do all the prep (casting etc) throughout the day. When I came back from Argentina, I slept for 3 days. And here also is an article I found in Televisual. Let there be Light.jpeg

I realise I never posted the Philips ad which went on air in July I think. This version with Director music - much nicer than aired version.

It looks like I haven't posted any pictures from the shoot either, so here are a couple. Director Philippe André in Buenos Aires at night (just before the downpour!) and the dream team Jan (Production Designer), Franz (DOP), Philippe (Director) & Steve (1st AD) on a bright sunny start to the last shoot day (again ending in a downpour!).

Films in LFF2019

This year my highlight of the festival was going to NFT1 to listen to an interview with Céline Sciamma, fabulously talented French writer director of Water Lilies, Tomboy, Girlhood (writer of the animated My Life as a Courgette) and in this year’s festival - her period piece Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
