For Episode #315 we sit down with cinematographer/director Thomas Simon to talk about his background, making his way into the industry, and the difficult balancing act between directing or dp'ing.

Thomas has a great eye and a refreshing perspective on the industry and how to navigate it and it was a pleasure to sit down and chat.

I hope you enjoy the episode and be sure to check out his work and his instagram via the links below.


Advanced Cinematography: Location Lighting

You like cinematography. 

Me too.

I made a course so I could distill everything I know about lighting an interior scene on location so you could steal all my secrets and make them your own.  I hope it helps.

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

Patreon Breakdown - The Power of the Dog

Over on Patreon this week we take an extensive look at what is probably the most challenging scene for any cinematographer and discuss how Ari Wegner ACS nailed it in the Jane Campion film The Power of the Dog.

Night work is always a challenge but interior night work with no practicals might be the most challenging from a lighting point of view.  How dark is too dark?  Where should the ambient level sit?  Ari shows us all how to do it at a very high level.
