Looks cool. But why does every Sound Devices product sound like it was named by the same old white guy on his way back from lunch
I could watch Paris, Texas 1,000,000 times.
Incredibly rad and completely ridiculous at the same time.
Great article. I'm a Chicago based doc filmmaker and was in LA this weekend having a discussion with a friend who is very much going the traditional DP route. His perspective is based around Arri cameras and mine is based around smaller cameras, and I realized during the conversation that we are simply working in different but equal approaches to filmmaking. My priority is always making people feel comfortable, the value that it brings is that it gives this effect of going into a world you don't often get to see in films, very personal and almost voyeuristic, and that is always appealing to me. His priority is delivering the most polished, cinematic images possible. Different tools for different jobs, and thank goodness for that because if we weren't comfortable with this idea then every film would look and feel exactly the same! Diversity is beautiful
Maybe this project enables him to do other work he's more passionate about. The world is a vast and complicated place, and the more successful you become the more difficult decisions you have to make. Going into this project I can guarantee he considered that a lot of his audience will feel the way you feel, but he probably decided it was best for his overall mission to do the project. Or he just liked the idea and wanted to do it.
Are creative docs allowed?
