DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY BEN GASKELL INTERVIEWED BY FILMMAKER MAGAZINE

Smock’s very talented Director of Photography, Benjamin Gaskell, had an interview with Filmmaker Magazine speaking about his artistic vision and shooting with Lomo Anamorphic lenses on a Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K during the latest episode of The Witness Project.

 

“There’s something really charming about shooting on Soviet era lenses for a project that’s telling the story of a victim of Communism. It’s ironic in a way.” – BEN GASKELL
 

“There’s one set up where she’s talking about being a beauty queen and working on films. We flipped the whole setup around and it’s lens flares galore. That’s one shot where it’s like “Hey, when I turn this up it’s going to look crazy, are you sure you want to keep this?” Everybody loved it. They said “Yes, it’s the look.”” – BEN GASKELL
