BERLIN 8:52 (2019) I DIRECTOR: Marc Hardman I DOP: Marc Hardman I STYLIST: Debbie Gallagher I EDIT: Marc Hardman
This is a short style/test film I shot in Berlin. I was shooting on my Panasonic Lumix GH5 with a Sigma 18-35mm lens and using only natural light. I graded the film in Premiere Pro (where I also cut it) and utilised many of the 16mm film grains, textures and light leaks that I have picked up over the years. I was trying to digitally re-create the beautiful celluloid light effects I used to get when shooting 8mm and 16mm film back in the day. In fact, in the film, Debbie is using one of my old cine-cameras now, sadly, for prop purposes only. You can see some of my original 8mm reels featured in the music video "Cold Death Morning" for R. D. Everett that is also featured on this site.
