Director and DP Communication

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  1:15 Hours of Instructional Video, lighting, camera schematics and a glossary of terms for better learning    –Supplied w/English Subtitles

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  Have you ever wanted to be that fly on the wall when the Director and DP are discussing the coverage of a scene, or the mood, or the way the camera should feel. In this lesson all of this is delivered.  Director of Photography Shane Hurlbut, ASC and Director Guy Ferland discuss collaboration on their project for AMC, the new hit series Into the Badlands. This was a unique situation as Guy Ferland took over for Director David Dobkin after the first three episodes of the series to finish out the final three episodes.

Shane talks about working with David (before he left to go work on a previously scheduled project) and Guy, the dynamic of working with two different types of Directors on the same project and the process of creating the look, feel, tone and mood of Into the Badlands.

Guy dives into his perspectives of working with Shane, the Producers and as the Director of the series. He covers what it takes to create a look for television that the client is looking for, that the story is looking for and ultimately what he is looking for.  Staying on time and on budget but still delivering the goods was a massive take away on this one.
