The third film I produced was entitled, “Red Fog.” I was the director in this film as well. I chose horror genre because of the cinematic qualities, which includes harsh lighting, sharp cuts between shots, and suspenseful storytelling. I had a limited supply of lights to use one total and two omni lights. I was anxious about exterior shots being to dark for lack of light. I was also concern about the limited space I had to work with. Although I was constricted to these limitations I met each challenge with the mindset that I had nothing to loose but only learning experience to gain. This was my first time shooting with fog and artificial lights, so I made the best of it and used a light meter for accuracy on every single shot. I projected that I would have some errors so I accommodated my concerns by purchasing three rolls instead of the two rolls that we were instructed to get, so that I could shoot some takes twice and have extra b-roll for sufficient editing. This film enhanced my understanding of what the job and concerns are for a director of photography.
