This is a great article and I enjoyed reading it.
It would be wonderful if Harley could expand on this section - "Wanting to make it as professionally as possible, I decided to e-mail Stéphanie Weber Biron, an award-winning cinematographer whose work I really admired."
I find with this kind of story this part typically gets glossed over. As in, "I had no money and no contacts but I decided to reach out to someone I admire and everything worked out from there." Was it really that easy? Did attending this workshop get you the contact information? Did Werner Herzog make the introduction? I'd love to hear more about the specifics of this part. The workshop was inspiring, now you have the confidence, what about the rest of the practical concerns of making the film? How were these tackled?
This post isn't mean to be snippy or nasty. So many articles online are inspirational - "You can do it!" but practical information would be appreciated also.
This looks exceptional and is a wonderful article. Nice work, Oakley Anderson-Moore.
Anyone know of a similar plugin for FCP X?
