Happy New Year to everyone from The HurlBlog!
We had a great 2011 and 2012 is already delivering exciting projects. “Act of Valor” directed by Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy will be in over 3,000 theaters on February 24th. The majority of this film (75%) was shot on the Canon 5D. In mid January, I will be shooting a Keith Urban music video and collaborating again with Scotty, of Bandito Brothers on the Canon C300. The song, ‘For You” will be the title track for AOV. Then, I am going to Sundance to speak about the making of Act of Valor. From there, I travel directly to New Mexico to lens “We Regret to Inform You,” a psychological thriller, directed by Rupert Wainwright that will also be shot on the C300. I’m looking forward to spinning Panavision glass and taking this new camera technology to its creative breaking point. Stay tuned for blogs about some of the exciting things that are happening in 2012. Now let’s take a look at our top 10 most popular blog posts of 2011.
I show examples from “The Greatest Game Ever Played” to discuss my lighting process and the importance of the Key Light.
