I am an independent filmmaker, primarily a cinematographer, based in Sinj, Croatia. I showed interest in films and photography from a very young age.
I try to bring amazing passion and excitement to everything I do and try to use new techniques and love experimenting on every new project I make to challenge myself and to improve the quality of my work.
I made my first film in 2009 with a couple of my friends. That film was soon followed by numerous other films, each having a different shooting style and different style of cinematography.
I haven't read the other comments, but all that I can say it really depends on the, lets say, style of movement you like, actually more on the emotion of the story, but that is more complicated.
For example, the steadicam will have more of a floaty feel, while the gimbal will feel much more precise and "robotic"
I haven't tried it yet, but I have a friend who did this for a film that he was working on.
Basically he took small firecrackers, drilled a hole in the tree and used an electronic igniter to fire them. It looked really amazing.
Personally, I would shoot it in native language and add the subtitles unless I can find someone that speaks (almost) perfect English.
I get better performances that way because actors can concentrate on acting more than talking in an another language.
I'm going on a 5 hour trip just to see it in IMAX (digital, no film here in Croatia)
This was amazing! Especially loved the first one, the use of diffusion filters really made it look amazing.
And just like everyone else said, more posts like this :D
I don't know why, but I kinda want this.
