In this episode of ON THE COUCH, I talked to LA-based director of photography Eve Cohen, and NoFilmSchool founder & director Ryan Koo.
The first theme we covered was the emergence of Virtual Reality cinematography. Eve Cohen is already very active shooting VR films and told us about the challenges and opportunities that the new technology poses. We talked about how new storytelling techniques are emerging for VR films, and how it is still the “wild west” in terms of how things are done and experimented with.
Ryan Koo told us about how he is preparing to shoot his first feature film alongside running NoFilmSchool as one of the most popular websites for filmmakers globally. The challenge of actually staying busy directing as a director is another topic we covered, something that seems to be easier to achieve for directors of photography, jumping from project to project, while directors have to plan/prepare a lot more.
Stay tuned for the 2nd part of this ON THE COUCH episode, when we continue talking to Eve Cohen and Ryan Koo!
