Worked with director Diego Ongaro and DPs Chris Teague and Danny Vecchione on this verite drama about Bob, a 50 year old logger with a soft spot for golf and gangsta rap.
We fought hard to maintain the dirtiness, the faded greys and browns, and stark bleakness of the environment which is such an important character in the story.
One of the first films ever shot on a pair of Black Magic Pocket Cameras, the film was shot in ridiculous conditions in the Berkshires during the "Polar Vortex" of 2014. Because so much of the film takes place outside in the snow, we worked to retain clarity and detail in the snow maintaining the low key naturalism of the film.
Bob and The Trees premiered at Sundance for its US Premiere and subsequently won the Grand Prize at its European Premiere at Karlovy Vary Film Festival as well as winning the Haskell Wexler Award for Best Cinematography at Woodstock Film Festival.
