On the show today we are chatting with cinematographer David McFarland about his latest work on the film 12 Might Orphans.

In this episode we go over the challenges of shooting a period film, embracing lens character, prepping a job and so much more.

If you haven't seen the movie make sure you check the link below so you can see for yourself the elements we discuss during the show.


Advanced Cinematography: On Set Training

It is finally here!!

I have been waiting for the technology to catch up and allow us to take this show on the road.  Seeing the visuals broken down after the fact has been great but building the shots from the ground up is a completely new experience and that is why I am so excited about this new course.

See a project from start to finish and come on set to watch and listen as the shots are built, schedules are constructed, and problems overcome.

I am very proud of the course and it is without a doubt the best, most concise way to learn about my approach to cinematography and to see exactly how I do my job on and off set.

If you are interested in seeing the Framework in action I highly suggest you check it out:

Patreon Breakdown - Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made

Over on Patreon this week we are breaking down a bit of a different film for us.

I am a big fan of cinematographer Masanobu Takayanagi so when I saw his name on a Disney movie with a target young audience I was interested.

Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made is a great case study because it is outside the normal content we normally look at.  

Check out what one of my favorite DPs decided to do when faced with a kid's movie that still needed a touch of style to it.
