Anamorphic Filmmaking

Recently I shot a short film about a twisted love affair. It was an interesting project because it consists only of 2 shots and they were both shot on the Pocket 4K using Sirui anamorphic 1.33X lenses.

The film is starring Sara Viteri

I wrote the film along with my wife Krisia. I also directed the film. A talented filmmaker Ketak Dhiman was the cinematographer. The film was produced by Amresse Farrow from Lab Two Twelve. We filmed at The Bookstore Speakeasy in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Below are four parts about the making of this film where I share some advice about shooting anamorphic films.

Part 1 – Angles and Composition
Part 2 – Camera Movement
Part 3 – Lighting
Part 4 – Editing and Colors

I also wanted to thank the rest of the crew that worked with me on this film including the 1st AC Harry Singh

Behind the scenes camera Craig Friebolin

Production assistants Chandler Davis and Ruthy Cruz

I shot this film on the 35mm Sirui Anamorphic lens also the Sirui 50mm Anamorphic lens which you can find on B&H, Amazon and Adorama.

Hope you guys enjoyed this film and tutorial series. Please let me know in the comments below.
