We are continuing the success from a few shows past with a listener breakdown on today's show with cinematographer Tim Thompson discussing his latest work.

In this episode we treat it very much like one of the breakdowns I would do for my own jobs but instead we are looking at a spot Tim shot.  I really enjoyed mixing it up in this episode and getting a peak into exactly what it takes to create something like this.

Hopefully this proves to be valuable to others in the community that are looking to improve their skills and their results.

Enjoy the behind the scenes look!

A Cinematography System: The Playbook Approach

You like the breakdown episodes and you want to be a better DP?  Would you like to hear how I think when it comes to cinematography and steal the methodology I built up over the years?  

OK.  Check out the course I created at the link below:

A Cinematography System: The Playbook Approach

My mindset around cinematography has morphed and changed over time as I am always seeking the most efficient workflow to get the best results I can.  In the course I lay out exactly how I breakdown a scene to make sure I am maximizing the tools I have available to me.

This is the closest thing I have created to a cheat code for up and coming DPs to bypass the years of trial and error I had to put in.

Patreon Video: Peaky Blinders

This week the breakdown is an episode from the series Peaky Blinders.

I hadn't seen this show and as I was looking for something interesting to cover came across an incredibly complex scene for coverage and lighting with lots of characters and lots of angles.

It was great walking through the coverage step by step to see the little tricks and tips that were needed to make it look coherent with the rest of the style.
