Thought I'd just point you towards my recent NFTS grad film 'Skyborn', directed by Jamie Stone, which has just been nominated for Best Foreign Film at the Student Academy Awards in LA next month: http://www.skybornthefilm.com/
. The trailer on the website is not cut from the final graded footage - there are better quality clips on my showreel: http://www.robinwhenary.com/
It's set in a futuristic world permanently enshrouded in fog, so was a fantastic challenge to shoot, and we used every square inch of the main stage at the NFTS in Beaconsfield, to shoot exteriors as well as interiors. It was quite an epic production for a short film! There are some behind-the-scenes photos if you scroll down on the stills page of the website. I used one of the school's new Alexas, and ended up shooting it entirely with one 14mm Ultraprime lens (apart from the miniatures, which were shot on a Red One at 2k using a similar focal length zoom lens).
I posted here over 3 years ago, with links to my early short films made in the South Devon countryside, asking Roger's advice about film schools. Since then I've had a wonderful 2 years at the NFTS, on the MA Cinematography course, to which 'Skyborn' was a very happy culmination. Now, having got an agent, I'm excited about working as a freelance cinematographer.
'Skyborn' was a real labour of love for all concerned, so we've been delighted with the reaction so far and are looking forward to it starting it's festival run!
