it for the time it takes. So I’ve been
doing these sorts of projects, as well
as music videos and smaller things
like that. I try to stay moving from
one project to another.
What are some of your creative
LSL: I really like naturalistic lighting, but I’m also a big fan of film
noir, where it’s very contrasty. I
guess those are two tendencies I’m
attracted to. I’m also into studying
painters, and I’m a big fan of Vittorio Storaro. I’ve always appreciated his style. His work was one of
the first things that had a big artistic
impression on me. Also, I love the
French New Wave. That was a big
breaking point in cinema. It was like
a breath of fresh air, and it still feels
kind of new when you watch it now.
I draw a lot from classic cinema. You
can find so much interesting stuff
there. Studying the classics, you see
how a lot of ideas have already been
thought of and put into practice, and
it gives you a fuller understanding
of the roots of the medium. And
I know it’s an obvious choice, but
Gregg Toland’s cinematography on
Citizen Kane is a really big one for
me. It’s still a great reference point.
It’s very impressive to see what
they were able to pull off back then.
