This is really interesting, but I wonder what the danger levels would be if the camera used was something like a BMPCC or mirrorless camera with a small rig. A production using an alexa-sized camera, is more likely to have the budget to film such a scene 'properly' and therefore more safely. It's the productions with very small budgets (which will also probably have smaller cameras) that are more likely to handhold a camera in the front passenger seat. I wish this study also used a compact camera.
Ahh, this is so inspiring! Thanks for posting this interview: really interesting and makes me want to go and make my film now!
If they're the size of pixels and not moving, then they may be dead pixels. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about it, unless I'm mistaken.
My greatest fear is that the way I convey story and emotion doesn't work for the audience. I think a major part of this is nervousness to trust my initial instinct, because after endlessly re-writing the script, cutting a hundred edits and re-watching them countless times, everything in the film inevitably becomes stale, and I marvel how it could evoke any emotion in anyone other than confusion or frustration.
