On the show today we sit down with Australian cinematographer Simon Ozolins ACS.

Simon walks us through his path to becoming a director of photography, we chat about his latest work on the series Ladies in Black, and he shares the approach he has developed for using the in camera textures on offer with the Alexa 35 camera.

Lots of great info in this one and it was great to finally get Simon on.


New Cinematography Course:  The Playbook Approach

Course Link:  A Cinematography System: The Playbook Approach - Volume III

The 3rd installment of the B.O.D.V.O. Cinematography System is officially available.  

This latest course is all about the most challenging set up for any cinematographer and that is a scene between 3 or more people looking in multiple directions.

The more variables the more chances of things going sideways on the day and in pre-production.  If you aren't on top of all of the options and understand all of the choices at your fingertips you are going to leave shape on the table.

This course outlines how I think about shooting these scenes, we go over all of the various options, look at the pros and cons so that you can be the most knowl;edgable person on set when these situations arise.

The further out in to the future you can see the better you are going to be able to guide the crew and those around you to a final sequence that you are happy with.

Happy directors, happy producers and happy crew mean more jobs in the future because you are providing value to the production.  It is win, win for everyone.  

I am super excited to get this information out in to the hands of cinematographers around the world.
