An award winning short film shot on classical Lomo Anamorphic lenses, a lovely set of vintage Russian glass from Lovelenshire at pinewoodstudios. The lenses contributed to giving the entire film a strong poetic aesthetic, complimenting the narrative of our protagonist. Letting the actors interact with the stark key light within the scene was a fun challenge, often they’d slip in and out of direct illumination. Working with subtle details was key, adding eye-lights and little movements to keep the characters suitably lit. In a sense I spent a lot of my time working in the shadows, not unlike Batman.
