Before You Hire A Director for Your Next Project, Read This
“How many of you have you ever hired an architect?” I asked this question in a presentation on Video Marketing I gave recently to the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). Only one person in the audience raised their hand. I wasn’t surprised. I asked the question because I thought I knew what an architect did, until I actually hired one. Then I found out that (just like directors) architects do all sorts of things I never thought they did. Early on in my career an architect pulled me aside and explained to me that many people who might want to hire me, have no real idea what it is I actually do? He suggested I include a worksheet outlining my process in my marketing materials and I’ve found it to be a really valuable road map for clients to better understand how we work together.

Director Rik Reinholdtsen Brings a Show Stopping Cinematic Look to HBO Max's Legendary
HBO Max’s Legendary isn’t the first reality competition series to shine a light on a fascinating slice of LGBTQ+ culture, but series director Rik Reinholdtsen brought a showstopping cinematic look to the Ballroom competition show’s first season that is unlike anything you've ever seen before. Reinholdtsen (Cooked with Cannabis, Inside the Actor’s Studio, Chelsea) shot with the Canon EOS C700 Full-Frame Cinema Camera, EOS C500 Mark II, and Sumire Prime Lenses to create a larger-than-life look that matched the majesty of the Ballroom performances, which blend dance, performance art and fashion. Reinholdtsen used the same gear to shoot in the field for the documentary portions of the show, helping him achieve a cohesive look.
