Moving Image Arts Case Studies
World Trade Centre
World Trade Centre deals with one of the biggest stories of our time. How difficult was it to find a way of visualising events that are now part of our collective memory?
Light and shade play a significant role in World Trade Centre. How did you set about designing the lighting scheme for the film?
Most of the film takes place in near darkness. How did you decide how much darkness an audience could take in this story?
How did you construct the visual grammar of the three different time periods in the film to achieve fluidity and consistency as the story moves seamlessly between them?
How did you use camera framing and different lens sizes to achieve the emotional intensity of the train station scene where Leonard confronts Virginia?
The Winter Guest
The location photography in the Winter Guest, one of your first feature film assignments, is very atmospheric. How did you achieve this unique look?
In a key sequence in the Winter Guest you evoke different moods and feelings by juxtaposing exterior and interior shots. Could you explain this visual approach?
