I had seen this great looking short film a few years ago, but came across it again recently on this blog by Ben Rock, a Los Angeles film and theater director.
Most would-be content creators have or know someone willing to provide a DSLR camera and someone who can operate it. Big "official" shoots (with an actual budget) for personal projects seem harder to come by since film school. Not everyone has a friend with a Grip truck sitting around, waiting to shoot some low budget cinema.
There is nothing I love more than shooting both stills and moving images at night in the urban environment. This post features an assortment of images I had posted to my Instagram Account which bring me back to this low light, available light, urban aesthetic.
Shooting with available light has helped me create work that is a bit urban and just a tiny bit gritty and this has been a delightful aesthetic to explore. Soon, I will reveal the first test scenes I shot with Tatiana and Troy in Downtown Phoenix!
