This week on the podcast we are chatting with cinematographer and now director Gonzalo Amat about his path in the industry and what keeps him motivated to continue to create.

It is always a pleasure to sit down with someone who is constantly pushing themselves and their work to the next level and Gonzalo certainly fits that bill.  There is a ton of experience peppered in this episode on the cinematography and on the directing side of the business.

Be sure to check out a tiny sample of Gonzalo's work below and give him a follow over on Instagram to keep up to date with his projects. 


Advanced Cinematography: Location Lighting

I told you a new course was coming and it's finally here.

It has been awesome hearing feedback from everyone that has already sped through the content and I am excited it has been as well received as it has.

In the new course I introduce my method for approaching cinematography from the most basic level and lay out each decision along the way.  When I think about the work I break every possible scenario into one of 5 buckets and go from there.

Doing so allows me to focus more time on what I can do and less on what is not as effective.  In this latest course we go over one of these 5 scenarios and I explain how I use a system to allow me to deliver the best results.

If you are interested in seeing the evolution of my approach to cinematography I highly suggest you check it out:

A Cinematography System: The Playbook Approach

Patreon Breakdown - The Terminal List

This week over on Patreon we are doing a supporter suggestion and breaking down The Terminal List shot by Evans Brown.

I randomly had this still from an Autumn Arkapaw commercial on the drive where I saved the grab from the terminal list and I thought it was funny how the tone was so similar.

Pretty sure that commercial was for a car company while the other one is some dark thriller.  I also remember suggesting when we were looking at that commercial that it would be hard to do a whole show this way.

Well obviously I was wrong.  Chalk up another L in my predication history.
