Zacuto USA brings another table side chat, this time with Directors of Photography and how they got where they are now.
In the first webisode of the new series, the new host Jens Bogehegn talks with fellow cinematographers Robert Primes, Trent Opaloch and Philip Bloom about how they got their start and what it takes to be a successful Director of Photography.
The Fellas: Jens Bogehegn, Robert Primes ASC, Trent Opaloch and Philip Bloom, open up the round table discussion by giving their take on the “real world” realities and benefits of attending film school. Next, they discuss getting your first break, steps of learning your craft and paying your dues. The webisode wraps up with a lively discussion on the new breed of filmmakers going viral, getting discovered on the internet and using social networking to build your audience.
The round table of DPs (Jens Bogehegn, Robert Primes ASC, Trent Opaloch and Philip Bloom), discuss the DP/Director relationship. They elaborate on ways to handle a problem director, the art of collaboration and staying true to your craft. Next, they exchange views on artistic vision and bonding with the director on a more personal level to build trust.
The Fellas discuss the constantly evolving industry (film vs digital) and how a new breed of DPs may never touch film. Next, they agree that HD DSLRs, such as the Canon 5DMkII & 7D, are changing the game forever.
The Fellas end the season with an engaging discussion on film and digital cameras and their performance under the ASC camera assessment test. Before the round table discussion ends things get heated…
