Inspiration: “The Sheltering Sky”
Christ, this movie is beautiful. Vittorio Storaro paints every moment of this film. Long. And Slow. And Beautiful. This seems to have been a theme amongst my “favorite” films through my formative years. This movie has so many bold photographic choices… I think about it during every movie I shoot. It doesn’t matter if it’s a comedy, or thriller… grungy indie or polished television. The Sheltering Sky reminds me to make bold choices, take chances, but always make sure they are beautiful.
I’m creating this section as a place for me to put down my memories, and create a sort of digital library of images that I reference daily in my head. I suppose, this way I can make sure the image in my head is real. ha. Anyway, be patient! I’m working on the new site between projects. 🙂 . For now, enjoy the trailer!
