SAFE (Stills Photography)
SAFE (STILLS PHOTOGRAPHY)
MELBOURNE, 2010. I volunteered as a stills photographer for JULIETTA BOSCOLO'S final project at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA). Julietta wrote and directed SAFE, a short-film featuring Australian actors ADRIENNE PICKERING and SHAUN GOSS, cinematographer JEREMY ROUSE, and a host of other actors and crew who all volunteered their time to help Julietta complete her project. It was shot in a variety of locations including a unit in St Kilda, two separate houses in Fitzroy and Northcote, the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, and Barwon Heads.
Sidenote - shooting stills means directing actors to recreate scenes before or after those scenes have been shot (unless you have a camera silencer, in which case you can photograph during filming without being heard by the sound engineer). As a documentary photographer, I never direct - it was in interesting experience. I preferred shooting the behind-the-scenes stuff
