Twin Falls Idaho

However, my point is that I was SO impressed with Mr. Mullen's photography in "Twin Falls Idaho" (as much as, if not more than "Northfork.") I found myself pausing the DVD to study some of his frames and wondering how he achieved such a unique look throughout. My favorite scene was when Blake and Francis are lying in the hospital bed when Francis is sick, and Penny is talking to Blake. There is this beautiful Kino (I think?) eye light at the top of his eyes and it looks as if he's seeing the "light at the end of the tunnel". Coupled by a wonderful performance by Mark Polish, this shot is extremely moving and affective. Congratulations Mr. Mullen on achieving such beautiful cinematography and contributing so much to the readers of this forum.

Yes, the hospital bed was lit by a 4'4-bank Kino with daylight tubes (K55) on tungsten stock (Fuji F-500T).
You shot this film how many years ago?
I guess it leads me into the question: Do you make it a habit of documenting lighting set ups for future reference or do you just have an uncanny memory?

I just remember a lot of details about things I've shot. If I showed "Twin Falls Idaho" to some students, I could probably tell them how every shot was lit, more or less (not 100% but the general details would be correct -- types of lighting units, film stock, etc.) Maybe I'd forget whether I had a 4K or a 6K HMI PAR outside of a window, but other scenes I'd remember exactly what I did.
