Hi there - hope I'm on the right forum :unsure: ...

just been to see 'Allegro' this week, the follow up to Christopher Bo's 'Reconstruction'... wondering two things about the look of these films:

- how did they achieve that look?

- can that look be approximated at the no-lo budget level? what sort of gear (production and post) would be required?

thanks

I haven't seen Allegro but I loved Reconstruction. The cinematography was excellent and I loved how it ties into filmmaking (how everything is explained in the end). Anything surreal pretty much just grabs me.

I seriously doubt you could do something like this no budget. If I were to guess Reconstruction is probably pretty low budget, perhaps in the $1mil - $2mil category. If I remember correctly there wasn't anything too special about the look other than some nice night shots and kinetic camera movement. Wasn't that also the film where they would track characters via satellite like a video game?

yep, that's the one. In both films, they've got a very intimate, grainy digitial look which I'd love to know how to approximate! The 'computer games video tracking' has been dispensed with in favour of some very cool animation for Allegro, but is just as effective...
