ART 21 @ THE NEW MUSEUM
I spent last weekend working on ART 21′s New York Up Close web series. This time we were shooting Whispering Pines 10 a one-act opera by artist Shana Moulton in collaboration with composer Nick Hallett. The opera was an interesting mix between performance, video projection and pop/opera songs. We spent most of the time shooting at the New Museum followed by a later performance at The Delancey.
Once again we were shooting all cinema vertie on the 5d mkII. I have dialed in a pretty good system for vertie on that camera. I also recently picked up a Canon 24mm f1.4 with still photography in mind, but its proving to be much more useful for video then I originally imaged. A funny side note, I bought the lens off a stranger on craigslist who happened to be the DP of Gossip Girl.
