Cinematographer Xavier Dolleans AFC joins us on today's show to talk about his most recent work and his transition from working in the European market to his first American project.

I am a big fan of Xavier his work speaks for itself.  It was great to hear about the path he is on and where he is devoting his energy to become a better cinematographer.

Be sure to check out his work below and give him a follow on Instagram to keep up to date with his projects.


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.

If you want to learn more about the course and the BODVO system you can check it out here:
