    Re: The Gregory Crewdson film is coming!

    I didn't see this first time around. It's a shame that nothing I look at today gives me a sense of awe or makes me say "how did they do that?" (remember when you first saw Star Wars??) I just assume everything is digitally manipulated and anyone can produce anything they can imagine on a computer.

    I think what's cool about this guy is the PROCESS, not necessarily the outcome. Someone earlier said they were not impressed because this dude wasn't doing anything unique that wasn't already being done on at the very least, B movie sets. True, but not for an 8x10 shot! That's the interesting part and what makes the process unique. Not necessarily the final image.

    Although I haven't watched the movie yet. I'll watch this weekend.

    Sorry, but I have no idea who Gregory Crewdson is. Should I?

    Click on the link in the original thread and watch the trailer. I had never heard of him either but, it looks interesting. Imagine a movie set and director engaged just for an 8x10 shot.

    What is interesting is that I actually work on movie sets with a large format camera; I may be the last one in the world doing this.

    BTW, I used only two sheets of film - primary and backup.

    Nice pic. Seriously.

    Maybe someone will make a documentary about you!

    Thanks, but most likey there would be no interest because I am not a "process artist", I just get the job done... quietly and with no crew.

    Gregory Crewdson is a heavy hitter in the fine art gallery world. The movie is pretty good, but all I can think about when seeing him is Danny Devito as the Penguin in Batman Returns.

ID:	169895 That’s a wonderful image Terry. I think one of the things I find interesting about his photography is the theatre of the images and the imagined, on my part perhaps, theatre of the Crewdson crew just behind the camera. Massachusetts has become a little New York in terms of moviemaking and there have been times when I have been out with my camera in a scenic area and IN comes the trucks, the crew, miles of electrical cables, security, temporary barriers, lights that look like they could illuminate a baseball stadium, then the important people surrounded by other people (I understand Denzel Washington is filming in Massachusetts right now). At any rate, I can’t help thinking about all of this but of course there is also the image. I find his images to have a mesmerizing quality and would love to see an exhibit of the originals. I would like to see not just the technical quality but would love to see if the actors can give me a little more of a hint at what Gregory Crewdson was feeling for that particular image. All the best, John
