Interview With Director Of Photography Luca Seretti
Cinematography as a word starts from the Greek underlying foundations of kinema and graphein meaning “developments” and “to record”. A cinematographer, also known as the director of photography (DOP), should focus on the content and elaborate on all potential creative effects, such as lighting and camerawork, to support and create an air of wealth in feelings for the audience while envisioning the story. DPs direct camera operators, partners, and lighting teams to achieve the best shot possible. After receiving the storyboard and shot list from the chiefs, their work in pre-creation begins. The casing, the focal point, the lighting, the variety, the development, the surfaces, and so forth would all need to be decided. To achieve the desired effect, they would need to make decisions regarding the frame, lens, lighting, color, movement, textures, etc. for a scene to be shot.
Sometimes when I’m shooting, dealing with lenses, lights, and colors, I experience a range of emotions, including confusion, rage, ecstasy, hopelessness, amazement, overwhelm, loss of words, goosebumps and, on rare occasions even the hairs on the back of my neck stand up! These are just a few of the feelings and viewpoints I’ve had about movies, music, and art. Beyond energy, working is a way of life for me, so I can’t imagine why anyone would want to do it. I feel incredibly strengthened and am especially looking forward to the remaining significant portion of my life.
During my career in Italy, I worked as a freelance cinematographer. I had the privilege of working as a cinematographer and camera operator for OG EASTBULL on his various music videos and for DeHermes on “Pantera Nera”, where I learnt valuable professional skills such as member development, community outreach, and organizational leadership. I have consistently received praise from my clients and peers for being efficient in my job. No matter what kind of project I’m working on—academic, extracurricular, or professional—I use my tried-and-true organizational, persuasive, and creative thinking abilities.
Individuals are my decision’s subject. This is a result of my sincere love and admiration for the feelings and living experiences of people. I genuinely value taking real and honest photographs that capture unadulterated inclination, enhanced using structure and light. In order for them to show me who they really are, I maintain that my subject should feel wonderful and open during the most common way of being shot. I believe the subject should see the outcomes and feel like they are being addressed well. I’ve recently started to work with scenes more. I love discovering beauty in ordinary places that might be overlooked at first. Through scenes, I have discovered that I would truly want to travel and see more fascinating parts of the world. Because of scene photographs, one photographic artist can take a huge number of individuals to the highlighted spot, and everybody can decipher it in an unexpected way. I have seen a lot more than I have with my own eyes thanks to other people’s photography. I believe that more research will eventually broaden my perspectives to include different aspects and mindsets of nature.
When I hold my camera to my face and look through the glass to see my subject gazing back at me, the world around me goes silent, and from the moment I start my set of images, to the moment I’ve finished editing them, I feel free. I’ve created something. I’ve grown as an artist. That is my accomplishment, in the future – I hope I will have managed to make, support or assist in the changes we are desperate to see. I hope the success can be measured over years and decades to come…. I hope in 10 years we still have the animals that are so critically endangered. For now – I love the restless race of your heart as a journey begins, I love a wild and unusual idea, I love champagne and chilies, I Love the perfect playlist and I love to watch the bush change with every minute of light. There is no doubt as far as I can tell that a degree in this subject will be enormously huge for my future. I can’t imagine an endeavor more meriting my time than an investigation of film. This choice comes from an adoration for films, yet additionally an appreciation for their significance in our lives. In my eyes, their true capacity isn’t to be undervalued. A vocation showing the intricacies of the top-notch film is perhaps my most noteworthy desire. Joined with adoration for investigation and specialized composition, it is clear to me that pursuing film is without a doubt the right strategy for me to take
I have a strong interest in learning more about the film-making process. Meanwhile, I set the goal of retaining as much information as possible, opening as many professional doors as could be expected under the circumstances, while maintaining a functioning enthusiasm and involvement concerning the film. I desire to one day have the option to call film examination a vocation, as opposed to only energy. I consider myself to be very diligent. I like to chip away at innovative ventures, from the very beginning to the very end. I’m profoundly coordinated, and a popular person. Not set in stone as ever to give a valiant effort at whatever is placed before me.
