    Lighting Tests

    David and I are working on developing a look for the film. The more I work with the HVX-200, the more I like the way it looks when you shoot dark. I started pushing in this direction when we were shooting the third season of YOUNG AMERICAN BODIES last November, then continued to explore it with Ben Kasulke when we did the second half of NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS in December. Now I think I'm going to head even further down the path of darkness with this one.

    We might try something even more extreme for the nighttime interiors, but I'm going to have to see how it works practically before I decide on that.

    There is one thing I know for sure. I love faces.
