Indeed, nothing and no one in the film looks under-budgeted. So buttery in hue and finish is Shane Hurlbut’s widescreen lensing, and so syrupy Paolo Buonvino’s lavishly applied score, that one could be forgiven for exiting “Fathers and Daughters” with a distinct hankering for pancakes.
Shane Hurlbut, A.S.C. is a very focused man. After securing a degree in film and television from Emerson College in 1986, the cinematographer quickly found himself learning grip and electrical work on movies like Phantasm II and Teen Witch. Since then, he has expanded his portfolio to include lead camera on nearly twenty films, including blockbusters like Need For Speed and Terminator: Salvation.
Into The Badlands, a “genre-bending martial arts series,” is an action drama hit for AMC that showcases more than innovative fight choreography but also a complex range of visual styles…. The show has a very stylized look and feel, due in no small part to the masterful work of Director of Photography Shane Hurlbut, ASC.
DP Shane Hurlbut, ASC, (Need for Speed, We Are Marshall, Semi-Pro) shot the show’s six-episode first season with multiple cameras in the swampy, sometimes stormy, summer heat in and around New Orleans. During an intense 51-day production schedule, he and his team — directors David Dobkin and Guy Ferland — used eight RED Epic Dragons and one 6K RED Dragon Weapon.
Director of Photography Shane Hurlbut, ASC used a series of 10 Cooke S4/i focal lengths to shoot Gabriele Muccino’s latest feature Fathers and Daughters, starring Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried.
