I was looking at Ultra 16mm productions and ran into this little comedy:
I realise it's meant to spoof low-budget JD (Juvenile Delinquent) flicks of the 50's but that lighting throughout the whole thing....
Like, look at that guy at 1:18 in the red jacket. He has three shadows. This would have looked a lot better in black and white.
When they introduce the Brad character, it's like they put a clamp light right into his face.
I don't want to make the same mistakes. So why is this like this? Is it just a lack of diffusion?
By the way, I mean no criticism of the writing or acting, I think it's great that they got together and made a film, specially in Ultra 16, in fact it's one I'd love to watch because these are right up my alley, but I think the lighting is lacking and I would like to know what is up.
