Hi guys,

 

Just wanted to share with ye all the trailer of a short-film I shot early in 2016, thanks to it I started shooting commercials. 

 

Directed by Daniel Corcoran, we shot Miah during 5 days in February 2016 in a town called Allihies in West Cork, Ireland.

 

Everything was shot with natural and available light with an Epic Dragon from Panavision.

We chose spherical Schneider Kreuznach Cine Xenon Vintage for the interiors and Lomo Anamorphics for the exteriors plus a couple of shots with Panavision Primos where I wanted to give the image a bit more of contrast.

The way we decided to work was to shoot wide static shots and let the actors play within the frame, sometimes doing things off frame because both, Daniel and myself, love the way that spaces can tell a story too with some close ups IF the scene needed them.

 

We both love Russian and Eastern European cinema and the work of Bela Tarr, Zvyagintsev, Paddy Considine, Ceylan and many others which I think that it shows in the short-film.

 

The whole budget was around €5000 if I remember correctly and we were a total of 6 people including the actor  :) so a super passion project! :)

Without further ado, here you go, the trailer for the short-film and some png frames.

Looks gorgeous from the trailer Miguel! The lensing works a treat - I wouldn't have thought it was digital if you hadn't mentioned it.

What was it about the film that convinced you to move to commercials instead?

Aaaw! 

Thank you so much Mark! :) 

 

Actually it was bad wording from my part! I meant that thanks to it I started shooting commercials :) 

I already amended it on the original post :D 

 

Have a lovely day!

Beautiful work, Miguel!

 

Your framing, lighting and lens choices really give it a unique look and atmosphere. Quite melancholic and representative of the feelings one might get while being out in the countryside. Very fitting for the piece.

Many thanks for the kind words Vladimir.

 

We are currently developing a feature based on the same themes, hopefully we will shoot it this year! :)

 

Have a lovely day!
