Doug Koch csc

This podcast features Director of Photography Doug Koch csc in conversation with Carolyn Wong of the CSC.

Doug chats about his latest feature, Funny Boy, directed by Deepa Mehta. Hear in detail his sneaky lighting trickery, dealing with really-really dark situations, aperture pulling, power outages, 100% handheld and feeling liberated by a ‘real jazz’ style shooting approach for this film. Needless to say, Doug is admittedly pleased with what he was able to accomplish on this 31 day, very low-budget film shot under extreme (heat) weather conditions in Sri Lanka.

CSC Live: Bolero – Advanced Crew Communications

Join us for our first CSC Live session since August! During this interactive session, we will be taking a close look at the Bolero intercom system, made by Riedel Communications Inc. Jeremy Benning csc will discuss his introduction to this system on a recent Disney project with Jason Ross from Riedel and Peter Slisarenko from Matrix Video Communications. Questions from viewers will be part of the session.

Used by organizations such as Formula 1, Cirque du Soleil, Olympics, NFL etc, this extremely versatile and robust crew intercom system proves its value amidst the challenges of on set communication during pandemic filmmaking; but also as a new standard for film crews going forward.

Special guests Jason Vieira (A-Cam Op), Jasper Vrakking (DIT) and Malcolm Nefsky (Key Grip) will take part of the conversation as well to discuss their experience with using crew intercoms in general and how the Bolero system fit into their on set workflows.
