This week on the podcast we are catching up with cinematographer Katelin Arizmendi to chat about her incredibly busy last few years in the narrative space.
Katelin's been a part of a wide range of different projects recently and we talk about the difference between them, how that impacts her own approach to the material, and what she is excited about when it comes to the future of cinematography.
It is great to see her having so much success after making her first appearance on the podcast way back in 2016.
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.
