The Tattoo 

 

Directed by Ian Power

 

Trailer

 

New York, 1980. Anna Meyer can't remember her past. A survivor of the Holocaust, she is haunted daily by the survivor’s mark on her arm - a concentration camp tattoo.

 

What begins as a crisis for Anna will take her on a journey of self discovery, acceptance, and redemption.

 

I had the incredible opportunity to work with Ian on this project and I can't be but really thankful to him for giving me the chance to imagine Anna Meyer's world. 

 

It will be in short-film festivals around the world soon so if you catch it, let me know! :)

 

Hope you like it! 

Have a lovely day!

Very very nice. Most impressive when you can pull off that level of style while still somehow feeling totally natural. I really like it a lot. Why 1.33?

Gorgeous stuff Miguel! I think it's some of your best yet.

4-perf 35mm?

And who's your 1st AC? I want to pinch them from you - some of those push-ins are ridiculous! :P

Thanks Justin! :) 

 

I love 1.33:1, it is one of my favourite aspect ratios (probably it is my favourite one) and I thought that it could be an interesting way to show that Anna is not very comfortable in the world she lives in, she is constrained, enclosed by something that she doesn't know about. 

 

Also, 90% of The Tattoo is Anna's face and 1.33:1 is an amazing aspect ratio to frame faces for! it feels really intimate to me and I wanted to be with really close to her all the time.

Awww.. thanks Mark!! :)

I certainly had a really good production designer and art department team to help me achieve the look of it! :) 

 

It is not 4-perf 35mm.. I'll give you another chance! :D

 

My 1st AC is Michael Gilbert, probably the best focus puller in Ireland at the moment!! 

 

He definitely nailed it!

 

Pretty sure that he would love to spend some time in the sunny Australia rather than in this island of ours hahaha :D

So much emotion in that trailer.  I had to watch it twice to get all the little pieces.

Hmm... too sharp for 16mm. Is it 4:3 Alexa with vintage glass, a healthy amount of diffusion and some REALLY good film emulation?

It is 4:3 Alexa Mini with Super Speeds (mainly the 35mm), Black Diffusion 1 + Black Promist 1/2.
No film emulation at all, we shot at 1600ASA, Prores 4444XQ.

Very nice cinematography. Looks like digital.


Thanks Jon!
