I’ve spent some time recently taking photographs on the set of my friend Amiel Courtin-Wilson’s feature film Hail. It’s been really inspiring sitting on the front line and watching Hail come together. Amiel is known for his wonderful documentary films and this is one of the few times he has directed ‘fiction’. And I’m sure from what I have been seeing the lines between documentary and fiction will be well and truely blurred. If you are a regular reader, you’ll know this is the kind of approach to film that really gets me excited. Amiel is working with a very small crew of only about five people, allowing him to work intuitively and spontaneously. I like it a whole lot!
Below are some portraits I have taken of ‘Dan’ who not only ‘stars’ in the film, but the story of Hail is drawn closely from his life and those around him. The film is currently in post and will premiere early next year. Can’t wait.
