Low-Budget Feature, Red One with Zeiss glass
Posted 26 August 2010 - 03:29 PM
I'm starting a low-budget feature in a few weeks, and I haven't been this excited about a screenplay in a long time. The story is very strong and the characters are well developed. It's a character drama, with strong elements of thriller with supernatural material and some beats of horror.
The Director and I have discussed going with a semi-documentary approach, trying to enhance a sense of 'realism'. However, the Director has requested this look should come predominantly from the lighting, and not hand-held camera work (though there will be some hand-held coverage).
Can someone point me towards a film that shares this aesthetic: lighting that derives significantly from "available light" and practicals, that is less glossy (but not sloppy), perhaps a little harsher in shadow quality, yet does not use a lot of hand-held?
Thanks so much fellows. I can't wait to start photography!

I remember hearing great things about its photography, and the special NASA made lenses (I think I'm talking about the right pic).
I did, however, budget 2 and change to watch There Will Be Blood.
Thanks so much for the references. Too bad I couldn't benefit from them.

But It may be a bit of inspiration:
