'STRAWBERRIES' - (2014)
Format: 35mm (Fujifilm) / DCP
Director: Paul Surety
Production Company: Surefire Communications
A naughty, illicit weekend takes a turn for the extraordinary when Alex tries to convince his beautiful younger partner that the holiday apartment thay are renting is already inhabited.
'Strawberries' marked my first collaboration with Director Paul Surety, and required a very particular cinematographic approach. The film draws its influences from a number of sources, including European Arthouse and the beautiful, escapist romantic dramas of 1950's Hollywood.
Originated on Fujifilm Vivid 250D and Fujifilm Vivid 500T in the 2-perf 35mm format, the film was shot spherically for a final aspect ratio of 2:35:1
Colourist Toby Tomkins (Cheat) graded the film from uncompressed 2K files provided by iDailies (London), who also provided film processing for the production.
'Strawberries' will be entered into a number of prestigious film festivals, both in the UK and Internationally. The film will make its premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
