Hello party people!
On the podcast this week we are chatting with father/son duo Sebastian & Wolfgang Thaler about their recent collaboration shooting Transatlantic for Netflix in the south of France.
There were a number of unique areas to explore having two cinematographers on who both took separate blocks of the show and made them their own, not to mention the fact that they are related.
Lots of fun chatting and hopefully you are able to pull some experiences and techniques from the conversation to help propel your own journey in to image creation.
The latest course went live last week and I couldn’t be more excited to get this content out in to the world and start getting feedback on the system.
The course continues the exploration of my own system for blocking and coverage that I call the BODVO system. I use it on every single scene I shoot but I haven’t shared it in great detail here on the podcast because it can get so complex.
This particular course is Volume II and it centers on the most common scenario which is the Office Scenario. The name office has nothing to do with the physical location of the scene but rather the orientation of the characters relative to one another.
Once you see the system, you can’t unsee it.
Nothing has improved my cinematography more than leaning in to this methodology and so far the feedback has been nothing short of amazing.
If you want to learn more about the course and the BODVO system you can check it out here:

The breakdowns are back on Patreon this week.
Tons of great cinematography to analyse with the goal of pulling the most successful techniques in to our own work.
