Successive Exposure

Next week, we sit down with David Stump, A.S.C., and discuss such topics as the iconic train sequence in Stand By MeRambo III's "muscle lighting," Beetlejuice, and Army of Darkness. Plus, we talk about Quantum of Solace and forgetting to steal things, Star Trek: First Contact and Patrick Stuart's eyeball work, and we visit post-apocalyptic Kansas, go for a ride in a certain time-traveling Delorean once more, and Louis loves on David's book, Digital Cinematography: Fundamentals, Tools, Techniques, and Workflows

David Stump has worn many filmmaking hats over last thirty-plus years. He's been a producer, a director, a cinematographer, an author, a visual effects supervisor, an effects cameraman - and he has an Academy Award for Scientific & Technical Achievement. He's worked on some of the most memorable films from the last three decades, and is generous enough to share his knowledge with world through his excellent book and articles on filmmaking.

On the next episode of Cinematic Immunity, we bring you part two of our interview with post-production supervisor, editor, writer and director Dan McMellen.  

This time we'll get into the more technical side of the post-production process, talking in depth about editing technique and theory, the gear and equipment used, and the role of Digital Imaging Technicians and Digital Downloaders.  Dan also shares a few valuable lessons learned from renowned editor and author, Walter Murch.

Check back on Tuesday for part two of our interview with Dan McMellen.  And don't forget that you can also subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, listen on SoundCloud and Stitcher, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and even tell people face to face about how much you love Cinematic Immunity!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Part two of our interview with the great Billy Badalato, Jr., is just a few short days away! 

These are just a few of the things you'll hear in part two: Questionable John Woo impersonations, what it's like shooting on a moving train from a moving helicopter, who wins a budgets-vs.-creative battle in the studio system - or budgets and efficiency vs. safety - how our guest climbed the ladder in production, the answers to questions like Why are we still waiting to shoot? Why are studios the way they are? What goes into the machinery of studio financing? ...and how Billy knew he had finally made it in the business when no one would sit with him at lunch.  All that, and more, this Tuesday on Cinematic Immunity!
