01 Dans Friday Film Making Creative Tips Wonders

 

In this weekly blog post, we ask the question; why is everyone talking about the brand-new movie Saltburn, and is it worth the hype? We turn our attention to the illustrious career of legendary British cinematographer Sir Roger Deakins and break down some of his most iconic films. Then finally, we take a trip to the Marvel universe and look at the 32 greatest moments from their awesome franchise… it’s all in my weekly blog post! ✨🙌

Why Everyone Is Talking About Saltburn…?

 

From Jacob Elordi’s bathwater being turned into a candle to Sophie Ellis Bextor being back in the UK charts with ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’, Emerald Fennell’s hysterically bleak tale of money, class, and murder has everyone talking about Saltburn… but why?

“Fennell’s love of bad fashion, banger songs, and the messy area where attraction meets repulsion offers audiences a thrill ride that is uniquely harrowing, hilarious, and exhilarating.” Mashable.com

Saltburn’s mix of anti-establishment ‘eat the rich’ themes, vivid stylization and gross imagery combine to create a compelling film that truly understands British culture and challenges our views on aristocracy. The themes resonate, whilst its unapologetic, shocking imagery is refreshing for many. From its beautiful Oxford setting to its awkward fashion sense, gorgeous cinematography and banger millennial songs. Saltburn is a cool, quirky British film that breaks the mould and is well worth the watch… (If you have the stomach for it!). Saltburn Director Emerald Fennel breaks down the arrival scene of Barry Keoghan in the video below, offering a fascinating insight into the inner workings/connotations of the scene and shows the exceptional level of detail Emerald went to achieve the end result.

He is widely celebrated for his innovative approach to cinematography and his use of natural light, meticulous framing, and a keen eye for composition, all contributing to the immersive and visually stunning quality of his work. The seamless blending of his technical prowess with storytelling has earned him numerous awards, including the coveted Academy Award for Best Cinematography for his work on “Blade Runner 2049”.
