Harvest New York Times Review
Harvest is one of the best projects I’ve ever been involved in, it’s small personal movie, about things we can all relate to. We worked handheld so we could connect the audiences with the performances fluidly, and give the sense of a personal point of view. Hopefully reminiscent of old family photographs, that were never quite perfect and somehow perfectly captured a time in our life. Or showed us someone we never really got to love until we couldn’t do it without a sense of loss. It got a great review in the New York Times, I think Steven Holden is a genius. You can download a .pdf of the article at the attached file link below. I really hope you’ll see the movie when it’s in theaters. It has some remarkable performances. I shot most of it hand held with the F23 (deck attached), we color corrected at Goldcrest. I think it looks great. Tell your friends.
Here’s a credit list, the movie is in theaters as I write this (August 2011), and it’s expected on Netflix in October of this year. Copy and paste this link to see if it’s playing near you.
