Enter the Dark

17 May

Part of the objective of today’s and yesterday’s location tour was to figure out the visual basics of Jakob’s nightly pursuit of the Samurai. A Fenix TK35 LED flashlight helped us create a great uncanny mood without having any ‘professional’ lights at our disposal for the test.

(Obviously, the people in the shots are not the actual actors.)

It’s quite amazing what two flashlights and a bounceboard can do. Looming shadows, the white ‘dress’ ghostly overexposing, absolute blackness at the seams of the frame. To people knowing me as an avid player of the Silent Hill video games it should come as no surprise that I am very fond of that particular lighting style.
