The great Christian Sprenger A.S.C. is our guest on this week's show.
We chat about his ground-breaking approach to shooting the early seasons of Atlanta and how what he learned in the prep process has gone on to shape the way he approaches future work.
I am a big fan of Christian's work and if you haven't checked it out make sure you visit his website to see it on display. it doesn't disappoint.
A Cinematography System: The Playbook Approach - Volume II
The latest course is live 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 Breakdown - Devotion
This week we are looking at a number of scenes from Devotion shot by Eric Messerschmidt ASC.
Even if you account for all of the various elements necessary to make the framework a reality on your sets there are still things that you can't account for and are forced to deal with. This is the beautiful part about cinematography and about implementing the framework on your own projects.
There is no end to the rabbit hole.
