Monthly Inspiration: Steve Yedlin

Monthly Inspiration is a blog series that’s about what inspires me; filmmakers, styles, actors, scripts… each month, I’ll cover one new piece of inspiration. Hopefully I can turn you on to something that will inspire you as well.

Traditionally with MI posts I try to find people who are inspirational both as filmmakers and as human beings. I try to focus on things that people do away from the industry that influence the way I approach my work. But for the next few months I’m going to be focusing on the Directors of Photography (DP’s) that influence my work with their work. So for this month I bring you Steve Yedlin, the DP from a big number of some of my favorite looking films.

Monthly Inspiration: Shane Hurlbut

Monthly Inspiration is a blog series that’s about what inspires me; filmmakers, styles, actors, scripts… each month, I’ll cover one new piece of inspiration. Hopefully I can turn you on to something that will inspire you as well. Sorry that this month (November) is late, life happens.

I’ve talk a lot in the past about Shane Hurlbut (hurlbutvisuals.com) but I’ve not done an MI on him yet. And for the next few months I’m going to be focusing on the Directors of Photography (DP’s) that influence my work. What better way to start than with the person that I’ve learned most of what I know about cinematography from.

Illumination Experience- Day 2

I spent the last weekend participating in the Illumination Experience Cinematography Tour (illumination.mzed.com). For two days I got hands on education from one of my favorite DP’s of all time, Shane Hurlbut (hurlbutvisuals.com). Being able to learn from an amazing cinematographer and speaker was truly invaluable.
