Also, if you are in NYC Wednesday night - "Consent" will be playing at VisionFest (Tribeca Cinemas). I was an art department production assistant on this film, three years ago, when I graduated as a film major and went to NYC. I was living out of a backpack in Manhattan and working on film sets... interesting times....
CONSENT NYC Premiere at VisionFest:
Date: Wednesday, June 23, 2010
Place: Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick Street, one block below Canal Street on the corner of Laight Street)
Festival Site: www.visionfest.com
If you watch the trailer -- see that medicine cabinet? (0:58 - 1:01 ish.) That was all me and Adrianna G. (art director) remodeling the same cabinet for the separate shots, and rearranging the stuff in there. Also that gravestone (1:34), that's us; we didn't buy a gravestone, though, we just added things to someone else's gravestone.
Also, 0:33 to 0:38... that dramatic circling effect is what I allude to in the cartoons "Movie watching part 1 and 2"
That clip actually does the effect more subtly then "Forbidden Kingdom," which is what I was making fun of. Regardless, watching a crew shoot this kind of scene looks pretty wacky (something about the camera whirling around and around) and I have never quite been able to watch a "dramatically circling shot" in a movie without thinking of how silly the set-up must have looked.
(Actually, on the whole, I was not able to really watch movies for a while after film school and working on sets. It is only now that I can finally watch general mainstream movies and somewhat enjoy myself.)
