Learning about Cinematography with Lucas Wakman
Updated: Aug 15
Lucas Wakman is an established indie filmmaker and cinematographer based in Montreal, Quebec. He has had several popular short films featured in festivals across North America. Lucas and I discuss the merit of creating both short form and long form visual content and the camera gear we use. I personally learnt a lot in the interview and am happy to share this broadcast with a personal friend and inspiring creator that I regularly bounce ideas around with. As always, new interviews every Wednesday on the Creative Kind.
In the interview on The Creative Kind, Lucas and I dive into so many interesting subjects. It was a pleasure to provide a platform where Lucas shares his insights and knowledge about film production. His latest film, Gran Theft Auto, has been featured in an upcoming virtual film festival as a semi-finalist. You can also watch one of his first short films, "Side Chick" below in the post. Thanks for listening!
