Episode Fifty-Three: Choosing a Camera
In the film world, the camera is king. What you shoot on will affect everything that matters to your project including budget, schedule and workflow. This week our discussion centers around choosing the right camera for your project. Join us for some extremely helpful insight given by directors of photography Lore Haroutunian and Ace Underhill.
Lore Haroutunian- Director of Photography
After graduating USC’s School of Cinematic Arts production program, Lore began finding her way as a cinematographer through shooting independent short films, web and viral videos, and teaching. She spent some time as adjunct faculty teaching 16mm camera techniques at the Colorado Film School, and after that, joined Denver’s Binning Family Foundation to teach film as storytelling, as well as lead an after-school film school program for teens. She now lives and freelances as a cinematographer in Los Angeles, and writes a rather nerdy blog for cinematographers called I Should Write This Down.
Ace Underhill- Director of Photography
Ace Underhill has worked in the film and television industry for over 13 years, blending extensive technical knowledge with an award-winning artistic edge. He founded Brilliant Screen Studios, a full service film & television studio as well as a feature film production company. He has served on the San Diego Filmmakers Board of Directors and was part of the Advisory Group to the San Diego Film Commission. Brilliant Screen also supplies productions of all sizes with crew, consultation, and equipment.
