On the show this week I chat with direcotr Mike Oldershaw.  Mike and I have worked on a number of different jobs together (some of which we have broken down on this podcast) and I am a big fan of his work and his style of directing.

We discuss the treatment process, pre-production, what it is like looking for talented directors and more.

Be sure to check out a small sample of his work below and give him a follow over on Instagram.


Commercial Cinematography: The Foundation Course

If you are interested in Commercial Cinematography and getting the most out of Pre-Production than this course is for you. 

In the course I lay out a step by step plan of action to get on commercial production radars and raise the level of your projects by maximising the prep time you have at your disposal.

Commercial Cinematography - The Foundation

Patreon Podcast - The Boardroom Battle

This week over on Patreon we take a look at two similar scenes shot in two very different styles.

I enjoyed looking at scenes from The Lincoln Lawyer and Intolerable Cruelty.  Each scene covers roughly the same interaction between characters but the difference in the coverage, lighting, lensing, and movement couldn't be starker.

This is also a great one if you've ever wondered what a long lens show looks like vs. a wider look.
