This week's show, I'm chatting with direcotr Mike Oldershaw. Mike and I have worked on different jobs together (some of which we have broken down in this podcast) and I am a huge fan of his work and directorial style.

We'll discuss the treatment process, pre-production, what it's like to look for talented directors, and more.

Check out a small selection of his work below and follow him on Instagram.


If you are interested in commercial cinematography and want to get the most out of pre-production, this course is for you.

In this course, I have created a step-by-step action plan to access commercial production radars and raise the level of your projects by maximizing the preparation time available to you.

This week at Patreon, we're going to take a look at two similar scenes shot in two very different styles.

I enjoyed watching scenes from The Lincoln Attorney and unacceptable cruelty. Each scene covers roughly the same interaction between characters, but the difference in coverage, lighting, objectification, and movement couldn't be greater.

This is also a great thing if you have ever wondered what a long lens show looks like compared to a wider look.
