Shooting For Fantasy With Sacha Vierney & Denis Lenoir
French cinematographer Denis Lenoir (Monsieur Hire, Paris Awakes, Shuttlecock Zone) and Sacha Vierny (Hiroshima Mon, Amour, Prospero's Books, Stavisky) explore the world of cinematic fantasy and magic. Vierny generously shares one of his special secrets, shoeing how to create a magical beam of light without the usual need for a smoked filled room. The effect is electric. Lenoir takes you through each step of his lighting design and also gives invaluable information about the use of fluorescent lights. This program explores the techniques that make magic on the screen, but more importantly the cinematographer's creative thought process behind the magic.
PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS: Lenoir demonstrates the ability of one special effect to hide another and how to combine several effects to create magic.
