And now for something completely different..
Yelena is a short film of Carl Van Baelen, currently finishing his master degree in Film at the Sint-Lucas institut in Brussels. A couple of weeks ago he got in contact with me asking me if I wanted to be the set photographer for his movie. I immediately jumped on the offer as I had never been on a movie set before and I was eager to see how everything was organized. From a photography point of view, the experience was fascinating, especially to see how light was used. Every shot had its own special costumized set-up of lights, reflectors, deflectors, etc..
The man you see in the picture smoking is Tom De Hoog, the male lead. The female lead was played by Lindsay Bervoets. I won't give away any details of the movie but I can tell you that it is an intriguing thriller that is set entirely in a hotel room.
