  In The Heights (Jon M. Chu, 2020) Discussion (Unsponsored by Richard Drysdale)
Posted by: boone daniels - 11 hours ago - Forum: Focused Film Discussion - Replies (2)

Big colors! Big performances! A musical where people don't need to explain why they are bursting into song! 





It looks like they've made some changes to update the material, chiefly, the immigration plot/issues. I saw another recent musical by Quiara Alegría Hudes, who wrote the book for the original In The Heights and does the screenplay here, that handled those issues with deftness and sensitivity while still being "political," so I'm definitely curious to see what they've changed. 

This looks like it has a lot of potential, but there are a lot of X factors, such as the oncoming Lin-Manuel Miranda backlash (if it isn't here already) and the fact the material isn't as good as Hamilton.

  THE CINEMATOGRAPHY THREAD
Posted by: engineer - Yesterday, 08:29 PM - Forum: Movie Miscellany - Replies (6)

   

When I was in high school (1987 or so), I wrote presentation on wanting to learn how to be a cinematographer.  Though I hadn't yet ever even touched a movie camera, I was exceedingly interested in imagery having grown up wanting to be a comic book artist (which really helped me out when it came to storyboarding) and photography (I still have my old 1970s vintage 35mm Minolta SR-1 still camera, love it).  I submitted my presentation, complete with visuals pasted into the body of the text and cited words of wisdom from my favorite DPs at the time. I got the grade, of B+, and when I asked why I wasn't given an A, the teacher said that even after reading through my pages she still didn't quite grasp what the difference between a cinematographer and a director was.  I told her, "Maybe you should try reading it again."  Then she marked the paper down from a B+ to a B. So, not everyone really gets what the job is. But, we all are aware, with the right kind of eyes, you know it when you see it.

Over the years, I only really shot a few films on actual film: 8mm and 16mm.  But I still know and love a great shot when I see one.  And so do you.  So let's celebrate the shooters here.  Not just "Great Frames" but great interviews, stories, anecdotes.  And if you've shot something you're proud of as your own DP, celebrate your stuff here too.  Talk lenses, talk stock, talk formats, talk experiences.  For all the people who make the images that make the movies.  Some of my faves...
