One of the many enjoyable aspects of my role as a director is working directly with my clients and advising them on how to achieve the best outcome possible for their projects. The quality of this final film is very pleasing as my client was very satisfied with the film’s production process and final deliverables. Among other examples of projects that I have worked on as a freelance filmmaker, that demonstrate my varied filmmaking skills, include " 120 Hours and Valladesam "
Cinematography is the art and craft of the authorship of visual images for the cinema extending from conception and pre-production through post-production to the ultimate presentation of these images. All and any processes, which may affect these images, are the direct responsibility and interest of the cinematographer. Cinematography is not a subcategory of photography. Rather, photography is but one craft, which the cinematographer uses in addition to other physical, organizational, managerial, interpretive, and image manipulating techniques to effect one coherent process. Cinematography is a creative and interpretative process, which culminates in the authorship of an original work rather than the simple recording of a physical event. The images which the cinematographer brings to the screen come from the artistic vision, imagination, and skill of the cinematographer working within a collaborative relationship with fellow artists.
Personally I have had many experiences on VFX supervising and on compositing, over more than 10 films, either on set and/or by VFX facilities and eventually running my own company for a few years in London, but then I moved on and stepped up onto a wider and more exciting market in UK and India ; I have been giving further opportunities as VFX supervisor with a few new film projects that I might start very soon, however even though the scale of productions is quite different we face very similar challenges on doing our job everywhere. VFX tools, post production solutions and technology in general are constantly improving every day, it is like an ever-ending race to deliver the most cutting-edge tools for imagery ever, but there is much more you need to know for achieving your goals! Machines are just junk without a pair of trained and critical eyes before them.
