ROGUE ARROW

In this homage to Roger Deakins, cinematographer of movies such as Blade Runner 2049, cinematographer Leila Saidane emulates his style through silhouette, prime lenses, and focusing on color.

I think you had a really great idea to make this kids drawing come to life. I can see the similarities to Deakins in your style of filming and use of colors. I like that you made a bold choice to use red light.

You have a great creative concept. You just need to flesh it out further. What tools can you use to do that? -Further development of the script so that the story gains depth. -Nice use of rack focus to guide your audience where you want them to look. -How can you better place your camera? At times it was hard to see what he was drawing. Moving around just a little would help to reveal better the story. -Really think about your composition. You had some but do even more. Keep working at it.

A Great Concept

2.2 Stars

I really liked this concept. These types of projects are really hard to pull off and require a great deal of visual preparation to pick up the nuance and subtle visual cues. This particular challenge was all about lighting a scene like Roger Deakins and composing shots in unique ways that help tell the story. This is no easy task. I would like to have seen a bit more focus on the lighting by this team. Still, I loved this story and I hope you guys revisit this and make it even better.
