This week we are chatting with cinematographer Paul Cameron ASC about his approach to the work and his philosophy around continuing to push what is possible.
I think Paul produces some phenomenal results and it was a great opportunity to hear about his workflow in prep, how he thinks about the job itself and prioritizing what moves the needle, and so much more.
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.
If you want to learn more about the course and the BODVO system you can check it out here:
Patreon Breakdown - Head to Toe
This week on the Patreon Breakdown we are looking more closely at some of Paul's work so I can explain exactly what I am refering to in the conversation we had.
It is a great opportunity to examine the necessary steps to be able to produce at such a high level over extended periods of time regardless of location or situation.
