Shot with Nikon FM100 + 28-200mm Nikon lens | film stock: Fuji Provia 100 ASA color slide film
While attending BAVC’s TechSF program, and receiving a video editing & post-production certification, early this year, I did, what I always do, when studying something of a digital nature, and that is to take some analogue film capture camera out and take pictures in the surrounding nieghborhood.
It not only clears my head, of all the video editing details, which are comprehensive, when trying to mount a complete video editing workflow, but it also helps me to get in touch with the neighborhood in a more organic way.
Choosing film stock, has always been important to me, especially, when I would travel to Japan, to take photographs in the street. I liked shooting film, even when digital capture was being perfected, because shooting film captured the light in a certain way, and gave me more interesting textures, then just the vibrancy and pixilated grain, that digital provided.
In the mornings, before such classes as Intro to Premiere Pro, I read in American Cinemotographer magazine, about how the cinemotgraphy team, lead by Barry Ackroyd, shot both in video and film, to capture the look and feel, they were looking for in the latest Jason Bourne film.
Ultimately, I would like t use both film and video to shoot stories, to give the piece that natural look, but also to give it some emotional impact. Looking forward to collaborating with other film production people, to tell local San Francisco Bay Area stories.
