Traders - Hunt

Feature shot on location in Ireland.   This scene was a real challenge.  The location had been chosen for a pick up at the last minute without me getting a chance to recce it.  The location was cool but we had a small crew and no lights.  Shooting on a Sony F3 we were very limited and the scene kind of grew beyond the original couple shots into a more complex shoot.  With the camera pushed to its maximum I decided to embrace the roughness of the location and try to make that work for us.  Finding every little pool of light we could we managed to construct a series of shots that make it work.  Its grainy and rough in spots but that helps the mood in a way. .
