  1. I am interested in finding out what film Gregory Crewdson uses to
    make the surreal "one frame movie" images he makes. I know about how
    he makes them - with lots of assistants etc - but not the technical
    details such as film type, I think he uses 8x10, developing, etc...
     
  2. 8x10 color negative from Kodak. I believe it is Portra 160NC, standard c-41 process
     
  3. whatever one his "cinematographer" tells him to.....
     
  4. I took a look at his Crewdson's stuff. Can anyone spell BORING! Well at least IMHO.
     
  5. This Crewdson guy looks like he is stepping on Jeff Wall's territory...
     
  6. I took a look at his Crewdson's stuff. Can anyone spell BORING! Well at least IMHO.
    your not the only one who thinks so by a long shot...
    and about cindy sherman....she should be at standing next to him while his ass is being kicked.....
     
  7. Thanks Ellis - that is the kind of information I was looking for. I also found this article about how he did the HBO Six Feet Under Poster.

  8. I don't get why someone would find it boring.
    The scenes maybe don't show much, but the colors, the tones, the lighting makes it worth staring at
     
  9. i think his stuff is amazing! the moodiness and all those tones, the one of that boy under the bridge?
    ok so his production is a bit over the top, but you have to respect the scale of it all....
     
  10. Yeah.. he is amazing! SUNY Purchase grad also. :D I am surprised his colors are so saturated for Portra.. i guess its all in crazy lighting he uses. Good stuff. Thanks for the post. ;)
