We are going back 5 years ago this week on the show and revisiting one of my favorite episodes from the podcast.
It was in 2018 that we decided to take the podcast on the road and we did a whole bunch of interviews in Los Angeles over the course of a few weeks. The very first conversation we had was with cinematographer Denis Lenoir AFC, ASC, ASK and he set the bar incredibly high for the rest of the trip.
In this conversation Denis shares a number of different ideas and approaches to cinematography that are as valuable if not more than when he originally came on the podcast so I am excited to give this one the love it deserves.
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 - The Last One
On the Patreon Podcast we are going to do one more podcast before we dive back into the feature breakdowns. These niche podcasts have been fun but it is time to mix it up.
If you have topics or concepts you want discussed in future episodes just let me know over on Discord and I will file them away for when we do another round of these things.
