#OnSet ‘Being A Cinematographer’ Parody Video

Original ‘Being A Cinematographer’ Video from EFTI School of Photography

I found the original video so arrogant I could barely get through it. I was very happy to see the parody released this week with the narrator saying what the original video was actually trying to say. What’s sad is I’ve worked with people with this mind set. It gives real cinematographers who didn’t have their mommy buy them a Red camera a bad name. These two videos are great for a laugh at the very least.

Video of the Month

Check out the trailer for Eleanor Ambos Interiors, a short film about a self-described ‘crazy’ interior designer in Long Island who creates spaces and rents out furniture from her spaces. You can see a 3 minute clip from the film on the website, Nowness. The film premiered at SxSW and has a runtime of 16 minutes. I hope I get to see the film in its entirety very soon! It looks great.


In Memoriam

In the last couple of weeks we’ve lost two major figures in film who were masters of technical achievement. They will be sorely missed.
