I want to much know who would put up the cash for an untested twenty year old to hire a professional film crew to shoot her pet movie much less hire name actors. The movie sounds great, but let'snot pretend any but the well connected insider could possibly do this.
It would be nice to know what ISO comes close to matching what a human sees in a dimly lit room or outside by a campfire, or sitting in a car with the dash lights on. Yeah, we can detect a single photon, but most of us want to know for example, if we're in a dim space and we can easily see the people and major scenery elements, what does that equate to in ISO as a starting point for filming?
Thanks for sharing this, I thoroughly enjoyed the film.
A companion article that walks us through the process of taking this from a cameraman with no plan to a polished piece in New Yorker magazine would be insightful as well. Lastly, do you have any plans to do a follow up piece? Your film humanizes a massive migration, and obviously many will be keenly interested in how they adapt to their new homes.
