Actor Carl Isherwood (Christian) through the movie camera viewfinder
The filming of the vampire movie 'Christian' commenced yesterday and i have to admit that i had quite a lot of fun. As the director of photography it's my task to help the director with the visual style of the film. Lighting and the framing of scenes are really the essence of what a DoP does. I love lighting stuff.
The shooting will continue during weekday nights for around four weeks, possibly longer depending on the weather/technical problems etc. The film' website can be found at http://www.christianmovie.co.uk/ . Check out the movie's Twitter feed too for audio and video podcasts, photos and updates direct from the film set.
