This week we are chatting with cinematographer Jesse M. Feldman about his latest work (recently nominated for an ASC Award) on the series Interview with the Vampire.
Jesse shares how he approaches the work, what he focuses on in prep, how he likes to manage crew and much much more.
Be sure to check out his work below and give him a follow over on Instagram.
A Cinematography System: The Playbook Approach - Volume II
The latest course went live last week and I couldn't be more excited to get this content out in to the world and start getting feedback on the system.
The course continues the exploration of my own system for blocking and coverage that I call the BODVO system. I use it on every single scene I shoot but I haven't shared it in great detail here on the podcast because it can get so complex.
This particular course is Volume II and it centers on the most common scenario which is the Office Scenario. The name office has nothing to do with the physical location of the scene but rather the orientation of the characters relative to one another.
Once you see the system, you can't unsee it.
Nothing has improved my cinematography more than leaning in to this methodology and so far the feedback has been nothing short of amazing.

Patreon Podcast - Going Dark
This week over on the Patreon Podcast I am going to walk you through how I would approach darkness.
It essentially boils down to an exposure conversation and, while exposure is an incredibly complex subject, that is what these podcasts are all about.
