SMALL GIANT: Production
DIRECTORS: Nick Morrison & Jose Leiva
A&E are one of our most CREATIVE clients. They push us stylistically on every shoot, and we love it.
The Character Spots for 60 Days S2 were no different. The idea was to FILM them like they were being processed at the county jail on the first day. We shot them with a single, bare bulb hanging above - which created an ominous, interrogation like feel to the lighting.
We shot on one of NYC's first 6K Weapon Dragons - the camera's lowlight ability allowed us to push this lighting, and creative, even more than we expected..
Finally - using our traditional set of classic vintage lenses, we were able to create a humanity and intimacy with our subjects that modern glass almost certainly would not have done.
Yet again, another example of Art + Science coming together on a Small Giant job, to create something magical for the client.
