Learning about Cinematography with Lucas Wakman
Updated: Aug 15, 2020
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!
